Date nights and sister time ♥

This date night began like any normal date night. I took extra care to look fabulous (didn't take a picture, slacker) and we went out to eat at Corked which is a restaurant/wine bar located downtown. We ordered drinks, appetizers and our entrees and we talked. Just like any regular date night. Only difference is that this time I glanced over to the left when I heard someone take a seat at the long table besides us, and my eyes widen because the person who took the seat besides us was Quinton Aaron.

Now, I'm not a big celebrity fanatic but I watch a lot of movies and own a lot of movies as well. I own this particular movie which also happens to be one of my favorites. I look over at Sean and say, "OMG, it's the actor from The Blind Side". He looks over and then back at me and says, "No, it's not". I give him the crazy eyes so he looks again and then he agrees and says, "I think you're right". I tell him that I'm going over to ask for his autograph jokingly and Sean shakes his head. A few people in the restaurant go up to him and get their pictures taken and I didn't. Half because I didn't want to disturb him and the other half because I thought I would feel like a silly fan girl. But I have to admit, it was pretty neat to have a celebrity sighting at one of our (not out of the norm) date nights.

The following day my sister came into town to help me prepare for our sister's baby shower the following day. I'll share some pictures of her shower later this week. I don't believe I've mentioned it on the blog (if you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat you already know) but my sister, Emma, was pregnant and she actually had a beautiful baby boy on 9/7/16. I met him over the weekend and he is just the most chill baby. I love him so much already! ♥

OK, back to topic, my sister wanted to do brunch when she arrived so we went to good ole Hamilton (I've blogged about it several times already) because she said she was in the mood for chicken and waffles. This time around I ordered something different on the menu but I sure was tempted. The hour we arrived was not a very busy time so I was able to get some shots of the restaurant that I've not been able to get which was nice. Our food was excellent, service great and company even better. Anytime spent with the people I love most in the world is the best time.

That weekend was filled with so much family and love and it was hard to shake that grateful feeling!
Hope you all had wonderful weekends and that you have a beautiful week! ♥

Isn't it the craziest when you spot celebs?!
Yay for a new nephew!

Awesome weekend! I love the restaurant set up. Hubby and I keep wanting to try one in our area but child care is expensive and the location closest to us is a solid 45 minutes away :-/. Perhaps the next time my free babysitter...a.k.a sister is in town :-).

Looking forward to reading about your sister's baby shower. I am sure it was awesome! Congratulations on your nephew! September babies are AWESOME! Not just because we are technically "Christmas babies" but also because we rock! :-D.

Have an awesome day!

I never see celebs. If I did I would probably behave the same as you for the same reasons. I don't want to bother them and I feel ridiculous asking for a pic.

I really like your sister's outfit, fun and definitely comfortable. Your pictures of food are always so amazing I just want to reach into the computer and eat with you guys :)

I always love your photos! I swear you always eat at the prettiest restaurants too. I'm forever in a McDonalds or a Panera! That must've been fun to spot someone famous-ish?! I'm glad you had a great time and congrats (again) to your sister.
