Jason and I are pretty good about getting out of the house on the weekends. We just pack up the diaper bag (inevitably, I forget something) and stick Alexander in his car seat. It’s not super cold out anymore so we don’t need to bundle him up. It’s fun, but going out with a baby is a bit like going out with a ticking time bomb.
On Saturday, we had a date night, just me and Jason. Jason’s parents came down and babysat for us. I actually put on a dress and makeup (a maternity dress, but whatever) and made myself look presentable and we headed to midtown for dinner at Top Flr.
I’ve been craving mussels for a long time. I couldn’t really figure out if I was supposed to eat them when I was pregnant, so I didn’t. So when I saw them on the menu, that’s what I ordered.
Unfortunately, these weren’t the best. The mussels themselves were fine, but the broth that they were in was too salty. I don’t know if this is a postpartum thing or what, but I feel like a lot of times when I go out to eat, my food tastes too salty. I don’t restrict, or even pay attention to for that matter, my salt intake, so I’m guessing it’s some sort of hormonal thing? Anyway, they were too salty. Oh well.
Dinner wasn’t the main part of our date night anyway. We had tickets to see the play Once at the Fox Theatre.
The movie Once was actually one of Jason and my first dates. “Falling Slowly” has always been one of “our” songs. So when the play made its way to Atlanta, I wanted to see it.
The play won like 8 tony awards, but I thought it was sort of boring. I liked the music but the play was hard to follow and I knew the story already!
No matter, it was still fun to go on a date.
