Yay For Grown Up Night...

Tomorrow my wonderful husband has a birthday. Part of mom-in-law's present is she always lets all the grandkids spend the night so we can go out on a date. We decided to use our date time going out to dinner and going to the theater (maybe a trip to the river boat casino after if we feel like it). So for dinner we will be going to a lovely little Italian restaurant on The Hill (for you non-locals that is the area where many Italian immigrants settled) called Zia's. They have the most awesome toasted raviolis I've ever had and their salad dressing is to die for. If you ever come for a visit you MUST eat here at least once. Oh and it's on the corner of Edwards and Wilson, how perfect is that? After dinner we will be going to the Fabulous Fox Theatre to see Sweeney Todd. I don't really know what Sweeney Todd is about but the few performances I have seen at the Fox were wonderfully entertaining, I have no doubt this will be too. Besides it isn't often I can get all dressed up. And the great part about the kids spending the night is we don't have to rush home. There is always a bit of mommy guilt when leaving this kiddos behind but, it is oh so nice to have some time away where we can just be Missy and Dave instead of Mom and Dad.
