Date night

Katie came over to stay with Jack tonight so Kyle and I could get out for a little while, sans baby. We planned to have dinner at Outback (because we have gift cards), but the wait was ridiculously long there so we ended up at Applebee's (where we do not have gift cards). Afterwards, we went to see "Baby Mama." It was cute . . . and funny. Cute and funny. I think if I had seen the same movie with anyone other than Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, I might have been disappointed. But I love those two. Hands down, my favorite part was when Tina Fey's nephew came out with something brown on his arm and his mother kept saying, "Poop or chocolate? Is this poop or chocolate?" It was a great night and was exactly what we needed!

It turns out that it wasn't just date night for Kyle and I. Many of the area schools had their prom tonight. And if you live in Jackson and want to take your prom date to dinner, where do you take her? Applebees, of course. Fancy. I saw one girl in a maternity prom dress. Yep. Kyle and I were sitting at the window that looks out at the mall corridor and saw another dressed up couple leaving with a Victoria's Secret bag. I think they need to spend a little time with the girl in the maternity prom dress.

We had a date night, too! We were laughing about how we just can't wait more than 45 minutes for dinner anymore - even when we don't have kids. We went to 3 different restaurants before finding one without a wait. Glad to get the review of Baby Mama. We went to What Happens in Vegas. It was also cute and funny.

Glad you had fun!

I saw baby mama today with my mama and I though it was funny. You're right, though, about the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler factor. One of my favorites, was when the birthing coach with the unfortunate lisp asked who was going to bring their baby into the world drugged and Amy Poehler raised her hand and shouted "woot, woot!" Loved it.
