Italian Theme Date Night

Olive Garden Pasta

You know we enjoy date night and look for ways to spice up our "normal" date night activities. So when I was approached by Olive Garden to review their new three course Italian dinner from their new Cucina Mia menu, I was like "heck yeah." You know I already love Olive Garden and  to be able to go & eat on their dime, we was super happy. As most of you know, Olive Garden is our Go To date night location. We really enjoy the ambiance of Olive Garden and the food is delicious. We go so much, that we know the chef name and  he knows our order when he sees it.

The Perfect Getaway-Atlanta

Perfect Getaway Atlanta, Still Dating My Spouse

We love traveling but there are times that we can't go far far away. So we love taking weekend trips. These trips allow us to escape the real world & just have time for each other.  It is so important to reconnect often. Atlanta is a six hour drive for us but we enjoy driving to Atlanta.

You  know the hubby and I laughed about the renovation because we talked about how sometimes us as humans hate to under … [Continue]
