Yesterday was one of those days, and I feel like everyone knows the implications of "one of those days" so I don't think there's any reason to elaborate on that. At the end of the day I felt tired, frustrated, and a little sad. All I was thinking about was how we should move to the Virgin Islands where life must be better. At least it'd be warmer and I'd probably always have a daquiri in my hand.
Right when I got home Parker said we're going out to dinner ... on a date ... wherever I wanted to go. 

And man, he was all showered up and freshly shaven so I knew he meant business. 

Is there anything better than a man surprising you with a dinner date night or is that just me? Doesn't take much to please me I guess. I picked my favorite restaurant that has scrum-dilyuptious food and Cosmos that were obviously made in Cosmo Heaven by a Cosmo God. We were able to get a cozy spot at the bar, talked, laughed, paid our bill, and went home - where we both fell asleep on the living room floor while watching the Olympics and sleepily made our way to bed at some point in the middle of the night. Romantic, huh?

It was just what I needed. We had a blast last night, I forgot about the things that were bothering me, I was reminded that I am so lucky to share my life with such a great man, and I feel like a brand new person today with a totally refreshed attitude. Sometimes a spontaneous date night is just what the doctor ordered.

1. Getting dolled up, wearing the stunning boots, and slapping on lipstick does wonders for the soul. It also feels pretty good when someone tells you that you look beautiful.

2. Speaking of your soul: I promise you that no matter what your day was like, when you're on your date and you smile or your man makes you laugh, it automatically makes your heart happy.

3. And if that doesn't work, have a cosmo. Because like I said, cosmos are practically made in heaven and when all else fails they are always a good backup.

4. Driving through snow flurries, hand-in-hand, makes you feel pretty darn lucky. It reminds you of when you were 16 years old, just dating, and couldn't even get through a 10-minute drive without holding hands. 

5. Talking about your dreams helps you forget the day-in and day-out activities. On your date don't talk about work, don't talk about what to make for dinner on the weekend, don't talk about what you need to do tomorrow. Let your body and mind relax and just dream. {My husband is much better at this than I am.}

So maybe it won't make everything better permanently, but it sure helped me a lot.

Now go get your man, make him read this, and tell him he's taking you out. If he has any problems he can take it up with me.
