date night and a wine tasting.

Jon and I are on a roll for the month of October...three date nights! On Wednesday I was supposed to help out with a wine tasting at the restaurant but as a last minute decision I was not needed. SO, I kept the babysitter and headed to the library and off for some quick thrifting. Afterwards I joined Jon at Benders and we sat by ourselves in the bar and did the wine tasting. I certainly indulged in food and wine, but it was worth it and I loved the time with my hubby.
