Date Night

Last night, Gabe and I had a date night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. My Mom came out to babysit Avery for us.

I surprised Gabe by ordering a cake that was a mimic of our wedding cake-same bakery, same cake flavor, same fillings, same colors of frosting. I think it turned out really cute! I hope it's just as yummy as it looks!

We started out going to dinner at Rooney's. We wanted to try somewhere new and dressy since we didn't have the little one with us. Gabe had been there awhile ago, but I had never been. It's a nice place and the food was really, really good (at least mine was!). I had an appetizer, salad, dinner and dessert because something from each category caught my eye. I was really happy with my selections, except for dessert-it was just ok. Gabe liked what he had but said his steak was just ok-not the best he has ever had. I would definitely go back though and it's one of those places where the menu changes daily so you would always have new things to try.

After dinner we decided to go to a movie. We haven't been to a movie theatre since before Avery was born so we thought we'd take advantage of our time. We went and saw "Inception" which was a new release. I read a review about it and it sounded really good, but sounded like it would be confusing too. I was pleased that it wasn't very confusing for me to follow.
I don't want to ruin anything about the movie but the basic idea is that the main character (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a master at extracting information from people's dreams. Some big shot hires him to do the opposite-to plant information in someone's mind by going in his dream (called inception). So most of the movie shows how he hires his team and they go about planning inception and then trying to carry out this task. It definitely was a film that kept you on your toes and paying attention every minute. And it was action packed right until the end! I definitely think it's worth seeing!
Overall, we had a great night. Avery did really well for my Mom and we enjoyed a baby-free evening!
