So, my husband is the best. Hands down, no competition – THE best. Friday he proved that to me once again. Normally on Friday night I’ll come home from work and we’ll make dinner, watch a movie together or maybe have someone come over. Nothing too exciting but it’s always nice to just relax and be together at the end of a long week.
However, this past Friday while I was working Eric asked me where I wanted to go for dinner that night. He’d blocked out time on our calendar as “Friday night date night” and wanted to take me out. It wasn’t an anniversary or anything like that but he had really thought about it and planned it out so we could have a real date night. I was totally touched. He booked reservations for us that were late enough that I would have time to shower and get all ready after work, even though I know he was probably going to be rather hungry by the time he got home and would rather just go. Then he found a movie that was probably a little more on the side of a chick-flick than he would have preferred and decided we should go to that.
We got all dressed up and went out to Macaroni Grill. I’d never been there before so it was a fun first experience. We were really lucky and got a table in the back corner, kind of secluded and next to a window. Eric wanted it to be all romantic so he started a game where we basically just went through different memories of us being together. It was really fun to just sit there and remember a lot of the good times we’ve had. And we definitely got to remember *a lot* of the good times we’ve had. Our food took forever to get there. The management was all worried about it and they covered our drinks and dessert to make up for it — but really, it was nice. We had the bread there to eat so we weren’t starving, and our movie wasn’t for another couple of hours so it was nice to just have somewhere to sit and talk. Even after dating for over a year, I never get tired of talking to Eric. It just always feels like such a treat to have some time together with him.
After dinner we went to see August Rush which was excellent. It had great music and an awesome plot line, it was really really a great movie. We cuddled as much as we could with an armrest in the way but I just liked being close to him and enjoying a great movie. We talked on the way home about the movie as well as talking more about how we’d come together and everything. After we got home we talked some more, listened to the soundtrack from August Rush and went to bed.
I know that the evening overall may not seem original or anything but it was so fun to spend some dedicated time with my husband. More than anything I was just touched that he wanted to do something nice like that for me and took the time to plan something out. He is so sweet and caring towards me, more than I could ever deserve. I truly am the luckiest girl in the world. I love Eric more every single day and hope that I can be as good to him as he is to me.
