Date Night

Sunday, December 27, 2009

RJ and I went on a date last night. We only have two days with my family, but we just had to take advantage of the free babysitting. So, we kissed the little man goodnight and headed down Highway 49 to Old Town Auburn. My family has been living in Auburn for over 17 years. I was here for 8 of those years, and somehow, in all that time, I only made it to old town half a dozen times or less. I don't know what I was thinking - it's so cute! I should have been going more often (although don't think charming historical districs really do much for you at 16).

Anyway, we enjoyed browsing the (2) streets and peering into the historical homes. There is a new brewery in town that served some decent beer and spicy buffalo wings. It was fun to sit in the window seat, discuss goals for 2010, and laugh over Landon's latest antics. I was a bit distracted during the middle of my meal by the really drunk gal at the bar who kept hopelessly flirting with the table of guys sitting behind her. I desperately wanted to put my arm around here, lead her to the back of the restaurant, and gently explain that she was making a complete and utter foold of herself. But she was too far gone for it to have done any good.

It was a real "date" date. After dinner we took in a movie: The Blind Side. I, of course, loved it. Having a heart for adoption this movie made me tear up more than once. I don't know what God has in store for our family, but I think it is so incredible that one person can make such a last impact on another person's life. The movie had alot of similarites to the book Same Kind Of Different As Me (a read I hightly recommend). I hope 2010 will be the year I stop just thinking about stuff and get off my butt and DO something. Although we don't really want to (myself in particular) being outside of our comfort zone is often the best place to be.
