BF explained because we progressed to a different stage of our relationship. If we have kids, we will be too busy running after them to look at each other. A gal will be lucky to have a meal in peace. (*I was told!)
I didn't feel super last Friday so BF called me up and told me to get dress because he was taking me out on a romantic dinner date. I felt better after dinner! I thought the black dress was too dressy so I added a grey denim jacket to make the look more casual but dress it up again with layered necklaces in pearls and crystals.
We found this restaurant in Stanton, CA names Park Ave. The atmosphere was really nice, service was attentive, food was wonderful, and the final price was fairly reasonable. We had steaks, 2 glasses of wine, a shrimp cocktail, 2 simple salad and 2 desserts (vanilla sundae and warm butter cream cake). The final tap was $135 including tax and tip. I would never find that place and wouldn't expect anything like that in the neighborhood if BF didn't just decide we were going there. If the restaurant was in Newport Beach, our dinner including tax and tip would be closer to $200 instead. (*Forgot my camera b/c I was not my usual self.)
In the last few years, I tend to buy simple classic bags because they will stand the test of time. This YSL bag is a few years old but I still like it and will use it from time to time.
What I Am Wearing:
-black Emporio Armani jersey dress with belt
-grey Habitual denim jacket
-black YSL shoulder bag
-multi-color Sergio Rossi eel skin pumps ---I so need to buy anti-slip pads (any recommendation?) to put on the inside to prevent my feet from slipping forward. These heels are so high my toes hate me at the end. Luckily I only had to walk from the parking lot to the restaurant.
-Necklaces --- made by me. I am so excited, I have all the pictures together now and am trying to figure out retail prices for my pieces. It will be so much easier to have pictures and prices to show interested buyers.
To be honest, I think many couples forget to romance each other after awhile. (*I am guilty too!) Some butt head guy friends actually commented they married the gal already so what was the point. The point is to show appreciation and to inject some romance here and there to keep the relationship fresh. If we don't take care of a relationship, it will dry up like day-old breads. I understand there are many chores and tasks so romance is probably the last thing on the list. But, we make efforts to do other things so why not put some efforts into keeping the most important relationship fresh. Let me ask you this, when was the last time the two of you went out on a romantic date? And, what is romantic to you?
