Some couples make it a priority to have a regular date night. Jackie and I have not been so great about doing that. In fact, last night was the first time we'd been out alone in about 2 years! So I was very happy that we're blessed with wonderful friends who volunteered to keep our kids for a few hours while we went out to eat.
Jackie got reservations for Ruth's Chris Steakhouse (unfortunately the one downtown was booked up so we went to Metairie) and we headed there for some yummy, yummy steak, garlic mashed potatoes, and sauteed mushrooms. The only thing that could have made it better was if they'd had Dr. Pepper, ha ha!
It was so much fun, I hope it's not another 2 years until we do it again!
