Friday Night Date Night

Friday, February 01, 2013

We had a beautiful sunset from our patio for Friday Night Date Night.

We don't go out. We just plan a romantic evening at home. A local restaurant gives us free delivery (but we tip of course). We're having "killer" roast beef sandwiches. I ordered mine with lettuce, tomato, and onion. No cheese and no mayo so that's pretty low fat. We're going to watch a romantic comedy soon: There's Something About Mary. We've never seen it. Should be good.

This is the second week that I'm not drinking for date night. I bought my husband a special drink (Mike's Hard Mango Madness Punch) but I'm not going to even taste it because I don't want to get a "taste" for alcohol again. I know if I start, I'll be going back to the store to get one (or more) for me. I'm drinking Florida Orange Juice - only $2.50 per gallon on sale and with a coupon. I'm feeling fine. I don't need alcohol. I just love spending time alone with my wonderful husband. It's good to know that I can enjoy myself without alcohol.

Have a nice weekend, everyone.

    Something about Mary is a hysterical movie, hope you enjoyed it!
    We have a lot in common, my husband and I usually have take out and a movie on Friday nights. My husband has to be at work at 5 on Saturday so we keep it low key and get to bed early. I like to drink a flavored seltzer. Not sure if you have a Stop and Shop grocery in Florida but the Stop and Shop brand Clear Splash seltzer is delicious.

    Your date night sounds wonderful, and what a lovely view.

    I too decided not to drink empty calories, i.e. alcohol. I drink water, coffee, green tea, and wine. So I'm cutting out the alcohol to see if I can bump start losing weight again.

    This is the end of the first week, and I'm glad to say I have lost one kg, the first in months!
