Awesome Friday

Yesterday was amazing! I was off work from Copper Mountain College so I decided to get in my hours down at Gilda's Club...I needed to catch up on TONS of work down there (lower desert) and Friday was the perfect day to get it all done. Although I would have much rather taken an actual vacation day--that's the problem when you work more than one job...there is always work to do and you can never have a real vacation day. 

Anyway...I blame my awesome mood on my bright yellow cardi & orange nails--

I decided on the way home that I wanted to take Cory out for dinner. I told him it would be up to him under the conditions that we wouldn't eat fast food, and we wouldn't eat at home. I wanted to go out!!

He told me he would think about it and for me to call him back when I reached Morongo Valley--Gilda's Club is 45/50 minutes away from home.

On my lonely, but reflective journey home, I was reminded how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful place:

As I reached Morongo, I called Cor to see what he fancied for dinner and he decided on the really super delicious Kimi Grill at the end/beginning of town. It's the best place to get sushi and all that fancy fish stuff--I usually get chicken or beef teriyaki but last night I tried their pork cutlet special...and let me tell you! It failed to disappoint! Delicious!!

Our delicious food!

Cory & I don't usually go to fancy or pricey places to eat, but I was in such a good mood--due to my nifty cardi :) It's magical--that's all there is to it. It's nice to have date nights, and I think we should schedule them in more often!

How was your Friday night?
What did you do?

As a fellow CMC'er, we do get bogged down with work, school and life in general, so we have a tendency to put "date night" on the back burner. You have given me a reason to "pause for the cause" and make a date with my SO. It might not be this week, but I will make it soon, I promise. Thank you for making MY day!!
