Friday Date Night

Last Friday, we had date night at Applebees. I can count on one hand the amount of times Sean and I have eaten at an Applebee. We received a gift card on Christmas so we took advantage of that. There are few things that are better than a free date night.

And I loved the food. It was really good and I think we would try to go there more often. Great prices and the food was/is delicious.

{Here are some pics of us {mostly me} before we headed out}

{Food}




{Sean got a steak meal but there was no way he was letting me take a picture of it. Lame}

Before, we got seated Sean recognized a girl that he once dated was the waitress for our table. Sean got so red. It was hilarious. I was seriously eating it up and busting his chops. I told him that I was taking pictures of her for my blog. Of course, I wouldn't do such a thing but he didn't know that. I mean, I bust out my camera at the oddest time like any good blogger so of course he would believe me.

It also helped for me to bust his chops because I liked how I looked.

Anyway, Sean was hanging out with her before we got together but once we met again we were pretty much inseparable. We got to talking and it hit me that if anything had happened differently, Sean could be with this girl. And it made me realize just how happy I was that I was eating with him at that moment and not her.

She asked another waitress to be our waitress, which was kind of strange because it was so obvious, since she was working every table in our section. I guess, 5 years later she is still mad at Sean for picking me.

It was a delightful date night :)

Fyi: Those boots I bought at JC Pennys a few months ago and they are SO comfortable.

p.s. I am having so much trouble commenting on some of your blogs. I don't know if my computer is about to give up and go to the light or if Blogger is just trying to annoy me.

It sounds like you had a fun night!! I love their appetizers and it looks like you got one of my faves: spinach dip, yum!! I love that the waitress was an old gf. That always makes for good dinner convo :)

Jennifer said...

First of all - your outfit rocks! I love your style girl! (o:

And secondly...OMG. I'm not sure what I would have done in that situation even though we are happily married. I think I have a bigger fear of running into someone I used to date and it being much more awkward. Either way - sounded like a yummy and entertaining date night to say the least!
