Date Night

Jon and I do our best to have a date night every weekend, preferably Friday. I like this because it usually means I don't have to cook, and it is a good tradition to help strengthen our marriage.
Tonight we went out to dinner at Brick Oven, a pizza and pasta place only a short walk away. We then decided to make truffles, since we had never made them before, and walked to the store to get some supplies. (lovely weather = walking everywhere possible). We soon realized that the truffles were going to need to chill, so we watched a documentary while they did.

I highly recommend what we watched, it was called Shakespeare Behind Bars. It was about prison inmates that go through an educational program in which they learn and perform a Shakespeare play. Many of these men have committed heinous crimes, but when you watch them you realize they are so easy to relate to, and similar to yourself or people you know. It was very eye opening. If you have net flix, you can watch it online.

After it was over we coated our delectable treats. They vary with: cocoa powder, powdered sugar, sprinkles and coconut. We get to try them tomorrow- hope they're as good as they look!

I think that is so cute to do date nights, it really does help your marriage to be able to just relax and spend time together.
