What's that old saying... Better late than ever, right?
So glad because today I wanted to share our Valentine's dinner date! Matt & I always have dinner together each night & sometimes cook together as well. What we've never done (sadly) is have a full on date night at home. So, to celebrate Valentine's and our 5 year dating anniversary we had one of the best date nights ever, in.
Matt worked really hard to build our formal dining room table that luckily was done just in time for our dinner date. (With all of the cold weather we were having it was almost impossible to to apply the clear coats & they dry properly). To make it a perfect date night, we picked up delicious steaks to grill, got all dolled up as if we were going out on the town, turned the tv off & music on & turned phones/social media off. While dinner was cooking we managed to get in a couple dances around the living room, talked & laughed together forever after dinner & topped off with a delicious dessert of red velvet cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes.
It truly was a great night for us & just what we needed! If you're in the need for a special date night try a date night in. Get dressed up, make it special... I promise you'll have a great time! Why in all the years Matt & I haven't done this before (we do have date nights just none like this before) is beyond me but, I can promise that it won't be the last time! To those of you who do already do special date nights like this, kudos to you - keep it up!
Hope y'all had a great Valentine's day & I hope you're still feeling the love!
