Tonight Was The Night!

Tonight was the big night people! Our first time since the baby was born! Actually, it was the first time since our anniversary date way back on December 30, 2011 (to be totally exact). That is technically a few weeks before the baby was born, but who's counting? Obviously, I am.

We just came back from the most delicious dinner date at our very favourite Vancouver restaurant, Chambar. When given the chance to head out for dinner (with no children in tow) we will usually both mutually choose Chambar. Back in the day we used to be quite the connoisseurs of dining in Vancouver, but now with very limited opportunity to go out, we are quite pleased that we've found a few golden spots to revisit.

Let me tell you about the best martini in town. You've got to be a bit of a blue cheese lover to really appreciate this cocktail. It is The Blue Fig martini and I first had it on my 30th birthday after a girlfriend ordered one. You get this perfect gin martini served with a tiny plate of blue cheese and a tiny spoon. Sip, spoon, sip, sip, spoon. So delicious.

So glad you were able to get out and enjoy a date night. Lordy knows, we all need them. I also want to thank you for blogging. I miss you and the other ladies from work and reading your blog helps me feel connected.
Look forward to seeing you and the munchkins in September
