Date Night + {Reese's Spinach Smoothie}

I'm not sure what was the biggest highlight of Sunday night: a) actually going on a date night and using our Bonefish giftcard that we'd gotten a YEAR earlier, b) fitting into a dress I haven't worn in literally years, c) eating an entire meal at a restaurant without having to "manage" a toddler or dig into my purse 35 times to find something to occupy/distract said toddler, or d) actually talking to Dear Hubby for 2 hours straight with zero distractions. I think I pick e) all of the above!

I made a few sacrifices during dinner:

  • I left my phone/camera in my purse and didn't take ONE picture of my food.  Soooooooo hard!
  • I left my phone/camera in my purse and didn't check Facebook or email. 
  • I didn't talk about the next vegetarian meal I've been dreaming up for Dear Hubby to eat :)
  • I didn't email my inlaws to ask how Babycakes was doing, what she ate, how bedtime went, etc...

Here's a pic I snapped before we left for the restaurant...not too shabby!

That pear shape is definitely still there...this momma has hips!  But, I am getting leaner all around... so that's a good thing.

Another highlight of the weekend was this green smoothie I'm about to show you. Think peanut butter. Think chocolate. Think spinach. 

Introducing Reese's Spinach Smoothie:

Though it has "Reese's" in the name, it's only to describe the flavor combo of the peanut butter and chocolate protein powder...no actual candy is inside.  Sorry if I just disappointed you!  But, this healthy smoothie TASTES SINFULLY DECADENT. It also contains Greek Yogurt for even MORE protein! I'm usually not a "smoothie person", preferring fresh juices.  But, this smoothie was worth getting out of my comfort zone!

Questions:

  • What's your favorite green smoothie combo?
  • How often do you do a date night?
