Date Night...

Saturday night, Nathan and I decided to have a stay-at-home date night.  We put the kids to bed early and grabbed food from my favorite, Chili's.  (Nathan had the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, I had the Triple Dipper with Southwest Eggrolls, !YUM-YUM!  and we shared the bottomless chips and salsa.  I LOVE their chips and salsa...)  Anyhow, we lit some candles, curled up on the couch, and watched this movie from the "watch instantly" option on Netflix*:



This is the cutest movie and Nathan and I HIGHLY recommend it.  I loved the female lead, Leslie Caron,  and of course you can't go wrong with Cary Grant-- he is just a natural in any role.  For dessert we indulged on homemade chocolate lava cake and sipped sparkling cider.  It was so relaxing not having to worry about getting dressed-up to go to a noisy restaurant or having to wonder whether Asher was crying with the babysitter.  We plan on having another at-home date night real soon!

* I included the trailer here; however, I recommend not watching it as it spoils quite a bit of the plot.

Mrs. Bonnie, are you telling me he reads the newspaper during the date or that you can't have a date b/c he is too busy reading the newspaper? My suggestion: hide it. hee-hee Isn't Father Goose a fun movie?!

Rowan, thanks for visiting. Yes you must give Father Goose a try. Initially, I stopped it after the first five minutes, but later when I got past that boring part, I loved it. The characters are so funny and the lines are quite witty.

Arlene, left you a comment on your blog. So glad you are back! So glad I won! Now to choose a prize...
