Leonardo and Lucky Dog

Chris and I had a great date tonight. I love date night (thank you Kaleah)!

Anyway, today Libby and I went to town to get two cent stamps, which led to the library and the park and ice cream. We got home and I sat down to play around on the computer. I was at An Iowa Mom's blog and she was having one of those frustrating, can't I do anything right days. So I was in the process of commenting her when I realized that MY house was an absolute mess and I had an hour and a half to clean the entire house before Kaleah would be here. Some super mom cleaning and a little bit of help from daddy (once he got home from work) and we were safe!

So then we went to this restaurant called Davinci's in down town Dubuque. I wasn't quite expecting it to be so fancy and expensive, but it was worth it. The food was delicious and filling. I don't think we would make a regular date night, but definitely good for those "special" dates. We considered tonights as our anniversary date. (It's coming up in about 11 days anyway.) After dropping the big money there we went on over to the river boat casino. This was our first trip since moving here. I absolutely LOVE to play the nickel slots! But tonight we found something even better...penny slots. Hey, we don't play to get rich! Anyway, we played five dollars each and I lost mine in a matter of minutes because I didn't switch my machine to pennies, but Chris on the other hand...lucky little boy! He played the pennies and gained my $5 back plus an extra 56 cents. We aren't exactly what you would call hard core gamblers. We just play for a little bit of free fun. :) Anyway, looking forward to next time we can go have some free entertainment again. I love having a little bit of "Chris" time. It keeps life in perspective.

Oh yeah, on a totally different note...I wanted for one full non-morning sick week so I didn't jinx myself. ONE FULL WEEK (ok...almost) of no sickness. I can eat again! Yea!

So glad you got that time with him. Neil and I played the nickel slots when we were in New Orleans one time. We lost our $15 in about 5 minutes ;) Haven't been back since but it was fun while it lasted! :) And I'm really happy to hear the sickness is easing up. Hugs to you, Liza dear! :)
