It's been a long week, you need someone to cook for you, and you definitely need that glass of champagne. As much as I love to cook at home with my husband most days of the week, sometimes by the time Friday rolls around, we need a break from the stove and oven mits.
Last Friday night my husband and I decided to put on some nicer clothes (meaning something other than our usual jeans and a sweatshirt) and head out to try a new restaurant. We were away for the weekend so it was a great excuse to give somewhere we had never been a taste test.
It was nice to get a little dressed up, brush my hair, and put on a pair of heels. Every once in a while a dinner out is needed to spend a little extra time looking at each other and having a meaningful conversation. So many nights we cook up a storm and then from exhaustion, sit down at our table and turn on the TV to watch episodes of Scandal (I know, it's a good time pretty much most nights).
But tonight I am encouraging you to put on that special sweater or new boots, experiment with a new lip color, and find a new restaurant to try or make a reservation at your favorite spot. It's good to love home, but it's also necessary to get away for a few hours to realize how much you love home and how much you love when other people cook for you. Enjoy your Friday night out and have a great weekend!
