No Kids Allowed

So Ty and I went out for well deserved night amongst adults. We were invited to dinner, a comedy show and dessert to celebrate a friends birthday on Saturday Night. Ty's mom (aka GiGi) took the kids for us. We had so much fun. We ate at an amazing italian restaurant and then went to an improv comedy show. The show was sort of like 'Whose line is it anyway?'. But for me, the best part was when we went to Extraordinary Desserts. I'd been to the one in Hillcrest that is set up sort of like a small cafe. But they have since opened a new 'restaurant' style concept. It was amazing. I love to try new things and this is just the place to do it. All of the desserts put a twist on tradition. They have an AWESOME non-alcoholic beverage menu from which I chose the 'American Beauty'; a drink that is made up of rose syrup, lime juice and San Pelligrino, garnished with rose petals. Ty took a picture of me with my Beauty. It was really fun to choose from a variety of mixers that were sans alcohol. I had the Torta-Misu and a scoop of the Salted Caramel Ice Cream. All I have to say is YUM!
After the pasta, laughter and the scrumptious dessert; I ended up being in a sugar coma and Ty took me home to bed.
Why is it that I yearn for a night out without the kids but in then end I can't wait to get home to see their sweet faces?
