Late Valentine Date With My Hubby

Can't remember when was the last time hubby and I went out for a valentine date or just  simply no occasion kind of date. Whenever we eat outside or watch movie in a movie theater we always have our kids with us. And when it comes to valentines I don't remember doing something special with him, I think we didn't really have a valentine date at all. We have been married for seven years but I spent three years of our marriage in the Philippines while he was here in the United States and when me and kids moved in here my hubby is seldom home due to his kind of job. This is why I think we never really dated for valentines and the last time we dated together without occasion and with out the kids was probably before I got pregnant with my youngest son. That's like more than a year or so.  Kids, work and chores just kept us from not having our hubby and wifey moment.

Although this is how crazy busy our life is, we never fail to say I love you to each other everyday and all the ingredients of a happy marriage there is, we have it. We give God all the glory for the things He has done and is doing in our lives. He is the reason why our marriage has come this far, strong and full of life. Hubby is my best friend, my accountability partner, prayer partner and the man God hath prepared for me to spend my lifetime with.

The awesome news is that finally we had our first valentine date, although it was a day later but better late than never. Thanks to my wonderful friend that offered to watch my kids for free. Yeah, you heard that right, she was kind enough to volunteer to be my kids nanny for four hours. It was actually my idea to go out for a date and to watch a movie after dinner. I thought I wanted to surprise hubby and make him happy. I called the restaurant for reservation because the place is usually full packed  at night due to the location and the yummy food they served 


We went to New Port Shores restaurant, it was in Port Washington, Wisconsin. Aside from delicious food they offer, you can see  Lake Michigan through the windows.


































Hubby and I had salad as our appetizer, it came with hot dinner roll. For our main dish, he ordered Kobe T-bone steak with mushroom. His order was an expensive almost $30 because of the meat. If you haven't heard about Kobe I am sure google can tell you why. I ordered seafood platter and it had fried shrimp, scallop, haddock fish and french fries as the side dish. I tried a piece of his Kobe steak and boy it was deliciously juicy and so tasty.                                        

Here are some photos I took inside the resto, they had mini fishing boats decoration on the side wall on top. We had a great time, great customer service, nice place and delectable food made our date perfect. We will definitely come back to this place.

After dinner, we went to the movie theater and watched Frozen. We love the soundtrack and the story was a good one.  It was a great late Valentine date, not because of the good food or the nice move we watched but because we were together. Love love love!!!!

How was your valentine? Did you go out for a date or did you spend time with family? It's all about love and you do not have to do something fancy to express love, in fact you can show love daily.
