Hot Date, Katy/Corey Style

I have been looking forward to this for weeks. Tonight is date night! Since the two of us have been taking turns gallivanting all over the place since...at least since Valentine's weekend...we've barely seen one another. What with dodgeball games for Corey and crossfit for me, plus work and rugby and marathon training, it's like we're on separate life paths this winter. We generally only run into each other at the midwife's office for our monthly visits.

Until tonight! We are having a date! A romantic, wonderful, food-filled date. (Keep in mind that I am married to a man who refuses to buy cut flowers because he finds them wasteful. Every few years when I get flowers, it's always a potted perennial. For birthdays, I buy him workout clothes or race registration fees...we define romance a bit differently on Duffield Street) Here are the particulars:

Corey will come home from work at 5. Like actually at 5...when work is over. Not 7:30.

We will then change into workout gear and go to Crossfit together! For an instructor's choice workout! Wooooo!

Following the workout, we'll walk to the Thai place around the corner and eat spicy food in our sweaty Under Armor, together, maybe holding hands, but likely not. We'll rehydrate and share some pad thai.

Then, we'll go home and eat ice cream on the sofa while I convince him to watch Lost with me.

Have you ever heard of a more perfect date? It sounds like I'm kidding, but really this will be a great time for us. Who knows? When we go to Vegas for a wedding next week, we might even wear fancy clothes for dinner together. Or at least get room service?

I think this is a super fun date! :)


and i think room service and cable is more appealing than a fancy vegas dinner!

On Corey's defense... work is not over for everyone at 7:30... that sounds like fun... mmm thai food... maybe I need to go on a date with myself...

"...at the midwife's office for our monthly visits."

You get to skip one "monthly visit" during pregnancy, so you replace it with another? This one sounds much more fun!

What did you guys think of Nicky's Thai Kitchen?

mmmmmm the spring rolls were probably the best spring rolls i ever ate! and the pad thai was really good. i like how they season their tofu. could have used some lime juice to squirt on the pad thai, but otherwise perfect. next time i'm getting curry! i could totally go there after every workout. or even stop during the long runs for a spring roll, since it's on the crossfit route...
