TBWCYL Day 303 - 60 minutes of wedded bliss

Friday I was tasked with setting aside an hour out of my schedule. It didn't say specifically for any one thing so I took it as open to interpretation. My wife has been working oppressive hours and I haven't seen much of her so I took the opportunity to set aside an hour to take my wife on a date.

Before dinner we determined we needed to go shopping to locate some stuff for Diana's Halloween costume (more on that in the next post). After hitting the shops all around town and the local thrift store, we had nothing and were getting hungry. We got to the Macaroni Grill around 7:30 p.m. and heard that there was a 45 minute wait and thus we left to go find a quicker meal. If you aren't familiar with Jason's Deli, it is a chain of salad bar/sandwich restaurants that are all over the U.S. and that is where we ended up. They have a seasonal Frito Pie that I adore and that is just what I ate.

By this point we were tired but still needing to hit one more place before going home and so we journeyed across the street to Michael's Craft Store and lucked into a lot of what we needed for Diana's costume.

I wanted to set aside an hour to take my wife to eat Italian and instead took her on a hunt through town and stopped in at a deli. Date night has sure changed since college.

That is all,
