An Early Valentine's

Last night we had an unexpected free night since my parents, the nice grandparents they are, took Preston for the night so that I could get some things done.

But if you didn't catch that, I was supposed to be getting things done, but instead went out on a Valentine's date with my hubby. Haha. Sorry Mom and Dad!

It ended up being a really really nice evening. I can say that it's been a while since we've had an evening to go out on a date without Preston.

We started off by going to "That's Amore!" on Capitol Hill in downtown Seattle. I believe I blogged about that little cafe in the past - but it has an amazing view of the city and great food too.

We dined on seasoned bread with olive oil/vinegar. Then enjoyed an appetizer of crusted risotto in red sauce. Then I enjoyed the pear/walnut salad, while Will had the ceasar. Then for dinner, I had Fettucine Alfredo with Italian sausage, and Will had the Wild Bore Pasta.

It was all very scrumptous. :)

Afterwards, Will surprised me to something I've been wanting to do for a long time...

We went to a Gold Class Cinema.

If you don't know what they are, they are high class cinemas where you get to sit in huge comfy recliners that have subwoofers underneath, while snuggling with pillows and blankets and having your own personal server bring you food that you order from a fancy menu.

I believe they only have a few of them across the U.S. right now, and lucky us we have one here in Seattle.

Here is Will while we are in the "lobby" waiting for our personal server to take us to our recliners in the theater to watch "Avatar" in 3D.

It was great. We just ordered Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Mousse and water for the movie, but it took me like 45 min to eat it because it was so rich. But soooooo good. :)

Definitely not an every-day kind of place to watch a movie, but a really nice special occasion place for certain.

All in all, we had a really nice relaxing evening. We love each other very much and are more in love now than on our wedding day. I know that sounds so cliche, but it's true.

Happy early Valentine's day! Will, I LOVE YOU!!!! Honeybucket. :)

I'm glad you guys were able to have some time alone together! Every couple needs that. And can I just say how INSANELY JEALOUS I am that Preston has grandparents who will do take him for the night? INSANELY JEALOUS!!!

What a yummy dinner! And that theater sounds awesome. We have something similar around here called Cinetopia. No blankets, but the rest of it is there. Love going to movies there. :)
