Date Weekend

Happy Monday, everyone!!

So, it's Monday, and I'm here to share my date night/weekend with you. Yes, date night kind of turned into date weekend....but don't get any dirty ideas--everything was PG!

Although the official date night (fancy dinner) was set for Friday, since my roommate had moved out that day, I was feeling a little lonely at home. My date (we'll call him MP from now on), MP, offered up hanging out, renting a movie, and making dinner together. This was totally up my alley, so we met up after he got off of work and made Mexican Lasagna (super easy and amazingly delish--thanks for the idea, Trish!!) He was even a good sport and watched the results show of So You Think You Can Dance with me...is he a keeper or what?? (And, Genna, if you're reading this, he actually let me WATCH it, without any dumb side commentary like a certain ex-someone *cough cough* haha). After SYTYCD, we rented No Strings Attached on  On Demand. It was cute, and offered up some nice couch cuddle time (hehe).

Friday morning MP ended up not having to work (a surgery was cancelled) so since it was gorgeous weather out, we decided to go for a hike at Great Falls in Virginia. Here are a few of the pictures from that:





And one more cutesy picture for good measure....

So, later that night was the "official" fancy date night. MP made reservations at the rooftop restaurant on top of the Kennedy Center in D.C. So, come 7ish, we met up and took a cab into the city for a nice, super quiet, delicious meal...

After dinner...
So, I ended up not wearing the red wedges...they didn't look as dressy as I had wanted when I put them on...and now looking at the pictures I wish I had brought my purple clutch instead of the black one (oh well). 
After dinner, because we still weren't sick of each other, we went into Georgetown for a drink at Mie N Yu.  Besides my fashion oops, it was a really great night! I felt incredibly special, and it really gave us a chance to get to know each other more, spend time together, and just enjoy each other's company. I can't say there was anything about the night that I would have changed.

So, there you have it....I hope you enjoyed the date recap, and had some great weekends yourselves! Go link up with Meg for Mingle Monday and share some stuff!
