Yesterday Tim and I had a FABULOUS date night, all because I took just a little bit of time to think outside of the box about what we would do for our evening. We didn’t do anything crazy (or crazy-expensive) like a hot air balloon ride, or an overnight getaway. In fact, we just went out to eat, pretty much like every time we have a date night.
Only we took some inspiration from the classic movie, Roman Holiday. This made it SO much more fun!
Instead of just wearing the same old tired stuff in my closet, I went for a new outfit. But not just any new outfit…I went for Princess Ann’s look in the movie (no, not the ball gown…). She had such an adorable look with her blue skirt and white top. I replicated it easily with items currently being sold at Target! Woo hoo!
We were also inspired by the fact that Princess Ann just wanted to get to enjoy her surroundings a bit, and so we decided to just enjoy ours. We walked to the restaurant and enjoyed the beautiful scenery of downtown Chattanooga, and then after dinner, and quite by accident, discovered ping pong tables that had been set out for the public to enjoy. How fun is that?
Finally, once we returned home and sent the babysitter on her way, it was time for dessert. Get your mind out of the gutter, you guys! Sheesh! I’m talking about the perfect ending to a perfect Italian date:Breyers Gelato Indulgences.
I had a container of the Tiramisu flavor for me, and a container of the Triple Chocolate for Tim. We were both in heaven! And we saved a bit of money on our date by coming home after just 3 hours out, and having our dessert at home. We also watched a movie, courtesy of our Amazon Prime membership. That’s right, Roman Holiday is available for viewing there for free if you are a prime member! 🙂
While it wasn’t anything too outside of the norm, this date night was just different enough to make it absolutely delightful. That’s actually sort of how I feel about the difference between gelato and ice cream! The next time you head to the grocery store, switch things up just a touch and add a carton (or 4) to your grocery cart. They retail for $4.49-$5.99 (depending on location) and they are truly an indulgent treat. You can even surprise your significant other with an Italian-inspired date night and claim it as your own idea. I won’t tell, promise! Divertitevi! (Have a good time!).
