Date Night on Friday the 13th

Tonight we had our "Date Night". We took off from work and went to the mall. I guess it has been a very long time since I have been to the mall because not only has the name changed (used to be Sarasota Square, now it's Westfield) but the whole dang mall and movie theatres have changed!

We didn't have much time but had not had lunch or dinner so we stopped in Ruby Tuesdays for a quick bite. We had the salad bar and split an appetizer. The salads were awesome..everything was so fresh! The appetizer we spit was a chicken quesidella -and quite remarkably the best one I've ever had!! It is one of my favorite things and I've had them everywhere so this is a big deal!

We made it out of there in less than half an hour and went over to the movies just minutes to spare before our movie started. I wanted to see Bridesmaids, and Vic was the good sport and said ok! We both laughed our butts off ...it's a total smile and laugh kind of movie.

When we were done with the movie it was still early so we wandered around the mall. I had worked at that very mall for years back in my 20s but it is so different now that I barely recognized it! We walked through the food court and got free samples. They worked because Vic ended up getting some orange chicken dish from one of the Chinese places. I had a bite and it was surprisingly good.

 I had the most fun just people watching! Living in a town with the average age of 67 (seriously it is, the census results were posted a few weeks ago!) it was nice to see teenagers and young kids all over the place! We walked around and in a few of the shops but headed home by 8:30 so we could take care of the fur children that had been home all day. I'd say it was a GREAT Date Night and looking forward to doing it again soon!

I'm glad to hear it was a cute movie :) I posted pictures of the last time I was a bridesmaid on my blog tonight just for fun.

oh my goodness. I saw that show on friday and I haven't laughed so hard in a long time at any movie. That whole scene at the bridal shop had me and my friend laughing for 5 minutes to where I couldn't breath.

PS: did you husband like it?

Dazee, I had several moments of laughing out loud and holding my sides during that movie! I am not married but my partner Vic liked the movie too, she generally doesnt like the "chick flicks" as much as I do, but this time I think she really did enjoy it!

I went to see that movie last weekend, but I had to be convinced. To my surprise I laughed my butt off nearly the whole time! I laughed so hard in parts of the movie that I thought I was going to have a stroke. lol Fun times!
