date night

Lately I have been feeling a bit off. I guess the word that would be most fitting is "stressed". Work has been very frustrating. There is family stuff going on that fills my head with worries and more stress. There just aren't enough hours in the day and I am having trouble sleeping. Oh. And my eye has started twitching. For reals. Like a cartoon character or silly movie. My left eye has developed this ridiculous spasm. It used to only happen when I was at work but seems to be more and more common. Gah. I am a mess. Do you ever have such a long list of things to do that it seems impossible so you just feel like saying "screw it, I'll just sit on my butt and watch tv"? That has been me for the last couple of weeks. My husband is also very busy and has his fair share of stress. Somehow, he found time to take me out for a much needed date night just yesterday. Normally on Tuesdays I make dinner to share with him and some of his classmates. This week, however, is their Spring Break. For most people Spring Break is a time to relax, party, and whatever else the kids are up to these days. When you're a design student Spring Break is that special gift from God that gives you a whole week without a new assignment being given and a little time to get caught up. Blake decided that his poor, stressed out wife could use some quality time out on the town. Boy was he right!

So we drove 15 minutes down the road to Seal Beach's main street. We had originally intended to take advantage of Beachwood BBQ's happy hour. But showing up 30 minutes before the end of happy hour was what everyone else had planned on doing also.

No problem! A short walk down the street brought us to the pier. And at the end of said pier sits Ruby's! Yum.

Shooby Dooby Down To Ruby's!

It was a gorgeous early evening. I love how it stays bright out so long this time of year. I feel like I can get so much more done.

The view was excellent as was the food and company. 

 I love my husband a lot.


  1. I love your pretty pictures! Sounds like a perfect date :)

  2. It's great that you got a break together. I don't even make a to do list anymore, it's so bad.

  3. How sweet. Sometimes a little break is all you need to make yourself feel 10 times better.

  4. Aw, I love this post! I totally get the eye-twitches when I'm stressed too. It freaks me out! That last picture is too cute! Take more breaks for yourself, it'll make you more productive during the times you work. :)
