Brian and I budget for a few date nights every month, but let’s face it, half the time our “date” night turns into a family of three night. ;) After a few weeks of date/family nights, we decided it was high time to have an actual date night, just the two of us! We dropped Ellie off at a friend’s house and headed down to Provo’s best kept secret – Tamarack. I had perused their instagram and facebook page a few days before and couldn’t believe the pictures I was seeing. So fancy! When Tamarack invited us to try them out, there was no questions asked, we were there! I know I probably shouldn’t judge a restaurant based on it’s looks (because the best Chinese food comes from those little run down places!) but this is one restaurant you can judge based off it’s looks. Because the whole thing looks like it should be in a magazine! Actually, I really just want my whole house to look like it. It was GORGEOUS.
It took awhile before I was done oohing and aweing over the décor, wood and metal accents, and all the gorgeous furniture. (Is it weird that I pay attention to all that stuff? I love it!) We finally got to the menu, oh the menu! I had a hard time deciding, but I finally ordered a limeade, and a steak, while Brian ordered some mozzarella sticks for an appetizer and a burger for his meal. Have you ever seen more beautifully plated food? I felt like we were supposed to be dining with the rich and famous, this stuff looked fancy! I also ordered pumpkin soup with my steak, and can we just take a moment to talk about it? That pumpkin soup was everything lovely and wonderful about autumn, blended up in a huge bowl of soup. It was incredible. Beyond incredible! I could go in for just the soup and be satisfied. Ok, ok, I’ll probably go back and order that steak too, because man alive! It was that good.
We ended the evening with the Rocky Mountain brownie, highly recommended! And yes, I know, talk about a lot of food! We had the best leftovers the next day! So fun to get a night out with my main man and devour delicious, gourmet (and reasonably priced!) food. Ahhh date nights. I’m ready for another one! (Maybe we’ll go back for brunch??)
And while I’m on the topic of date nights….
…I’m trying to figure out how to get one last camping trip in before it gets cold and I get wimpy. Loved this camping date!
…Any date that includes pumpkin cheesecake is the best date, in my opinion. :)
…Staying in? Here’s a few at home date night ideas.
…Think I can convince Brian to get take some darling photos like these ones?
Love you all. Seriously, this blog community is fantastic. Happy Monday! XO
