Date Night

Guys, have you taken your lady out on a date recently? Well, time's a wasting! And it's one of the best things you can do to strengthen your marriage. And IT DOES NOT have to be anything fancy or expensive. Let me tell ya, a nice walk in the park, holding hands and getting ice cream is one of the best dates ever.

So tonight Hubby took me on a date. We have SO many new restaurants in our town and I know he's been wanting to try one but wouldn't tell me. I was pleasantly surprised to find us at Toyko Japanese Restaurant. The local paper recently had a review and it got 4 out of 4 stars. Although I don't like sushi and I'm a little picky so I was a little nervous.

The restaurant is tiny so it was a little uncomfortable waiting for a table, having to stare at everyone eating. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table which is really good in our town. I ordered the Hibachi Steak, Hubby ordered some Box thing and we also ordered bacon wrapped asparagus appetizers. We both got soup and salad with our meals and I did not care for it at all. Then my Hibachi Steak came which was kind of weird because we hadn't got our appetizer yet. My meal was wonderful. The steak was tender and cooked perfectly. Eventually the rest of the meal came. Hubby had like 5 different things, the only one he knew for sure was salmon. I thought that was funny, he had no idea what he was eating but he said it was really good.

Even though it was pretty crowded and I didn't care for the soup and salad it was a very nice meal, almost romantic even :-) Then instead of taking the interstate home, we took the long way and drove through town, listening to worship music blaring, every once in awhile turning it down to talk. Had to stop and get ice cream on the way home of course!

As we drove through town we could see the full moon across the clear sparkling sky in front of us. As soon as we pull into the driveway our new neighbors pull into their driveway. They actually don't move in until Monday so it was the first time we've seen them. We had a nice visit and got to share a little about our family.

Thank you Lord! What great date with my great hubby!

You don't like sushi, miso soup or ginger salad?? That is sad. :-)

Glad you had a good time. We've been wanting to try Tokyo for awhile as we are Sushi Masa regulars and love sushi and pretty much anything Japanese.
