Happy Friday everyone! I hope that your week has passed by quickly! I have to say, mine actually has! It’s kind of amazing the ways that my days are being filled! I am so glad that I am not at home twiddling my thumbs as I wait for baby to arrive! Let’s hope it stays like that! ha ha!
March is one of those special date months because it lands on someone specials birthday! It is fun to do something special that I know Ryan will like for our March date. As I mentioned before, dates are going to become pretty low key is the very near future. I didn’t know back in December how I would feel in March so I didn’t plan anything TOO extravagant but I knew we should still get out of the house for our date, while we still could!
The birthday boy was excited to open our next date envelope!
It reads, “Happy Birthday month my love! This is a very exciting year for you! This is the last birthday you will be celebrating before you become a Daddy! In about a month we will know if you are the Daddy to a baby girl or baby boy!
I that you are going to be an amazing Daddy and I can’t wait to watch you in your new role! You are already an amazing husband and I am so lucky to have you by my side through every adventure!
I’d like to celebrate YOU by spending the day with you. We can sleep in and relax before getting ready to head out to one of your favourite places for supper! The Keg…Yum!
Enjoy a Caesar (salad and drink form!), steak supper and delicious birthday dessert!”
And, we did just that! March was a very cold month, kind of like the whole winter we have had so we decided on the Hunt Club location in Ottawa that offers parking rather then our usual downtown favourite.
We got there right at 4 PM when the restaurant opened and were placed by a beautiful fireplace side table! It was actually a perfect dinner spot!
We ordered our drinks, enjoyed an appetizer (garlic bread and Caesar salad, yum!) before we ordered our main meal!
Then it was time for the main meal, steak! Yum!
We were both SO stuffed so we just split a mini brownie with vanilla ice cream! It filled that sweet tooth craving of mine but wasn’t too much to make me uncomfortable.
We drove home very satisfied and full! Ryan had been bugging me since around Christmas time to go to The Keg but I knew about this date and kept holding him off by telling him I couldn’t eat a big meal right now and wasn’t wasting the money! Ha ha! Finally, Ryan was able to enjoy a special birthday meal at one of his favourite places and we got to enjoy a romantic meal (that I didn’t have to cook). Of course, the best part of the date is the alone time we get to spend together. Truthfully, the best part is the hour drive to and from the city where we have all that uninterrupted time to talk!
It’s hard to believe it’s our last date month without a baby! I’m excited to see what is in store for us and our dates in the very near future!
