Dating In Baltimore...Again!

Lee and I are dating again in Baltimore!

 

Anyone who knows me and TLH knows that my Lee  and I count the days we have been married. Today is 15593 days. 

We have decided to start dating again. When our daughter Erica was born, we had a standing baby sitter once a week and we had rules. The date was just the two of us and the conversation was limited. NO conversation about work and NO conversation about our baby girl.  Our sitter showed up every Monday night at 7:00 and we HAD to go out for the evening.

Just recently we were talking and decided to start dating again. This time, we don't need a sitter and it will not be at night. We are going to have a weekly lunch date. We are planning to try a new place each week.

Rules again..This time NO real estate talk!

Our first date was last week and we went to The Cheesecake Factory (not a new place ..it happened to be close to an existing appointment.) Hope you enjoy the photos from our first luncheon date. Going through the Towson Mall we had to pass these colorful  bromeliad plants... a treat on a snowy day in Baltimore.

I found the lighting, ceilings and decor as delicious as the food.

If we are going to have a lunch date, I better show you pictures of food. Here is a plate of spaghetti and meat sauce and chicken medallions with vegetables and rice. More than enough for lunch and take home portions for another meal.

If we are going to a place called the The Cheesecake Factory...there has to be pictures to go with the name. Did not sample any but here is what these luscious desserts look like.

Look forward to our next date. If you have any special places that you want to hear about  in Baltimore, we will be happy to visit, review and have our date at a new place of your choice.

 

We are dating again in Baltimore!

Hey Margaret ... I get it ... not RE converation at lunch ... but really ... you picked a restaurant close to "an existing appointment?"  Which came first the appointment .... or the lunch location selection! (LOL) ... looks like my kind of place ...

Hi Margaret,

I had forgotten about those date nights!  We used to do that, too, when the kids were little -- Wednesday was our night.  We need to get that tradition going again!

Your photos of Cheesecake Factory look great!

Melanie, We changed to Wednesday nights at one point...many places were closed on Mondays.

Lynda, Thanks for stopping by.

Jack, It was actually "his" appointment..not mine.

Marie, Hope others will copy this idea.

Jane, This is a pretty easy relationship to keep alive...but because of this kind of thing.

Ellie, You are so right and thanks.

Dr. Stacey, The key is putting it your planner just like any other important appointment.

Larry, You have a lucky lady....good down to earth time.

Holly, Any suggestions where we should go?

When TLH walked into the Suburban House and you planted a lip lock on him, I knew who he was right away!  Sweet that you still go up and kiss him on the lips when you see him.  Happy Valentine's Day Margaret!

Did I miss the lip lock?  I love re-date.  I've been married for 4,569 days.  Our next "anniversary" is coming up on February 25 when we will have been married for 110,000 hours.  That's a fun site.
