It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas AND finals are just around the corner; whether we like it or not this is a stressful time of year. Being my mother’s daughter, I deal with stress by taking care of other people so I decided that last night to combat the stress and the cold a lovely little date night was in order. I texted my boyfriend, told him that it was date night and went grocery shopping.
I cooked steaks for the first time garnished with sautéed yellow squash & zucchini, charred rolls, Lea’s home fries, and a bottle of Texas Merlot. My man and I enjoyed a quiet dinner at my house, a free screening of It’s a Wonderful Life, a walk in the Christmas lights, and ended the night with late night sundaes.
Life when you’re young, busy, and have lots of things to spend very little money on can sometimes get challenging but it is important to remember that it’s not about what you’re doing; it’s about who you’re with.
