Date 11: Restaurant Hop

This is definitely a fun date! The idea is to head to three different restaurants in one night. The first restaurant is where you will get your appetizer, the second is meant for an entree, and the third and final is dessert. What a great time we had! First, appetizer, we decided on Applebee's, we love their sampler. So that is what we got. Here are our pictures from our first stop. :)

Next, it was our entree, yum, yum! We decided on Famous Dave's BBQ. So delicious. It was such a beautiful day we even decided to take this date outside.

 We were somewhat stuffed from earlier so we decided to split a meal on this one. Although it was still a lot of food. Oh well, leftovers!

There are definitely known for their sauce. Here they are lined up and us assigning one to our personalities! Lol.

Matt, was Devil's Spit...

Me? Sweet and Zesty...

Again, lots and delicious food... 

and a beautiful view, and a warm fireplace. 

 We were stuffed....

Last, but not least....DESSERT. We choose The Cheesecake Factory. We decided not to go in since we would have waited forever, instead it was to go orders and then to Wheeler Farm for a mini picnic. 

Date 10: Netflix

Well hopefully this is very self explanatory.... We had a night to relax and be with one another. Just a night on the coach, cuddling, and holding hands. Sometimes these dates just hits the spot.

Date 9: Megaplex

Tonight Matthew drew Megaplex! I was so excited because we were able to go see The Hunger Games! 

We had saved our gift cards and redemption coupons. We ending up not paying a cent and we got to eat dinner too!

 We were so excited!
First we had dinner. In these pictures we were attempting to appear hungry while playing games!

Lots of fun!
