For the month of April, the Make Out Monday challenge is
A Night On The Town.
Every once in a while it is a lot of fun for us to head into the city, wait a ridiculously long time for a table at a restaurant where there is not a child to be seen, spend a little more money than we're used to, eat some fabulous food and really feel like adults! For us that usually means heading out of our sleepy little suburb. Luckily we don't have to drive far to engage in a little night life and perhaps spot a celebrity or two!
We booked a sitter and headed out to Santa Monica for a fabulous dinner at a little place called
Milo & Olive Nothing too fancy, but casual, homey, divine culinary creations! We had their famous Garlic Knot which we decided parted the clouds and descended upon us from heaven. We also ordered the House made Sausage & Grits, Hazelnut Beet Salad, and Burrata Pizza - all of which were gifts from God!
The mere energy in the room was invigorating. We didn't get seated until about 8:30pm (when is the last time I ate dinner that late?!) and enjoyed people watching and catching up with some old friends.
After dinner, we headed to another little quaint place for dessert - truly making this
A Night On The Town! (Shouldn't we be in bed by 9pm?)
Sweet Lady Jane offers sweet treats that promise a night of sweet dreams!
Although we could barely keep our eyes open on the drive home! it was well worth it. We had a marvelous time being "grown-ups" and enjoying something different from our normal evenings.
Now it's your turn! Plan a fun Night On The Town date for you and your loved one - you've got the whole month to make it happen.
