Date Night

B's Sister Shannon asked if she could take Jake for the night so B and I decided to have a date night. B made all the plans and didn't tell me what we were going to do. The entire time we've been together B has never planned a date night for us. He's not really the romantic type but he does try. He took me to a place in Stillwater for dinner called Phil's Tara Hideaway. We had the most amazing dinner. Of course I had to take pictures.


Brent ordered a steak sandwich and I ordered greek chicken. We both thought our meals were AMAZING!!

My dinner

B's Dinner


After dinner B and I took a stroll down memory lane. B and I have known each other since I was 17 years old. He lived across the street from my best friend from Tamie. We spent a lot of time together and dated for a while. He was my first love. We used to spend a lot of time at a park down the street from his house called Tablyn Park. We decided to stop there after dinner. It brought back so many great memories of all the late night talks and beers on the tailgate. 


We then drove past B's old house that he grew up in and decided to stop by Tamie's old house. Her Mom still lives there and I couldn't just drive by without saying hi. We visited with Tam's Mom Deb for a bit before heading back out on our trip down memory lane. After our visit we stopped by a bar that we used to go to.
We talked a lot about old times and how amazing it is that we met so long ago and how much we loved each other then and how amazing it is that we found each other again 4 years ago and now are engaged and have a beautiful son together. 

B and I have been through a lot in the past few years with Jake being visually impaired and then B getting diagnosed with cancer. It has all brought us so much closer. I thank God everyday for B and for our son. 

B asked me to marry him last fall and we had a date set for this fall to get married and then we found out that he had cancer. Needless to say our wedding date was put off. We didn't want to try to plan a wedding while Brent was going through all this treatments. Now with his chemo nearing it's end and with me back to work we finally feel comfortable putting the wedding plans back into gear. Tonight we set a date. B and I will be married October 6th 2012. Let the wedding planning begin. 

Thank you B for a great night. I love you

Sounds like a good time. Erika & I have always believed that nights out without the kids are good for everyone (including the kids!). May the cancer go away and never returns, and may 10/6/12 go off without a hitch!
