Date Night

I'm just going to preface this by saying I obviously really like my mustard striped shirt, because I wore it a lot this fall! And you will see it again in these pictures--oops!

Will and I got a gift card to Texas de Brazil from our best man as a wedding gift! It was so thoughtful of him and we waited a long time to put it to use. Will made reservations for Friday night Nov. 2nd because his softball team had a bye week. It also happened to be our 8 month anniversary making it extra special. It was a  gorgeous night and this was our view as we drove into downtown Ft. Worth.

I love my husband, he's so handsome--and he's all mine!

Some of the leftover meat on my plate. I'm not going to lie, I don't think I'm a very big fan of lamb. The flank steak is BY FAR my favorite thing! Poor Will had a little trouble with the name "flank" steak.

I almost had this tootsie pop for dessert, but apparently at fine establishments like this, cheesecake is more suitable. Oh and those cinnamon bananas that clear your palate-- AMAZING!
Dulce de leche cheesecake was amazing, but we had to take most of it home.
After dinner we stopped by Starbucks to grab a coffee and walked around downtown.
We even walked past this place, where we were married exactly 8 months before!

While we were at dinner Will got this really excited look on his face and told me that he had something he needed to tell me. It sounded serious, but he didn't look serious. He said that he had booked tickets for us, back in August, to fly to Ohio to meet baby Jude Thursday the 8th. BEST HUSBAND EVER AWARD!! He is so good to me. The Lord really blessed me when He gave me Will. I am so undeserving of Will, but even more so undeserving of the love of a Savior who took my place and died for me. I am reminded daily of His love because of my husband. Will had been so excited about the secret trip. He planned it for a week after Jude's due date, but because Jude was almost a month early, we didn't get to meet him till he was 5 weeks old. I had even been pretty rotten towards Will because I wanted to be with Ben, Lisa, and the baby so badly right after he was born. All the while he was just patiently waiting to surprise me with the tickets. Love him.
