I think it is absolutely essential for the health of a relationship that you take the time to grow together and also take the time to go on "dates".
It had been awhile and I felt the itch to dress a bit, so I asked my Sweetie if we could fit a date night into our schedule. We got a last minute babysitter (thanks Nanny!) and got all prettied up to go out to Cheesecake Factory to try out their yummy eats. I checked out their menu online ahead of time and was reassured that there were plenty of non-cheesecake options available.
I guess the CF is pretty popular and we were told it would be about 45 minutes for a table....luckily there is an exit to the mall!!
First off, a moment of reverence for my gorgeous glittery heels!
Okay, so first stop in browsing the mall was Sephora where my Sweetie noticed they have the Hello Kitty items I had shown him online (I told you he's my best friend!! He remembers what I like and points out things to me even if I will probably end up wanting to buy it!). We looked over the products they had in stock and I decided to take home the hand-held mirror.
It is so pretty and shiny!!!
Bonus!!! I had enough points saved up on my Insider Card to get a Hello Kitty eyeliner....in PURPLE SPARKLY!!
I don't know if I will ever bring myself to use it because it is so adorable and purple and Hello Kitty, but at least it will always be gorgeous on my makeup tray!!
Our last productive stop before dinner was The Disney Store. I am soooo glad I went!! If you preorder Tangled at their store you will get a set of lithographs to take home with you right then!! I had preordered online from their site, but was told the lithographs were as supplies last....I was not willing to take the risk of them running out and so I cancelled my online preorder and preordered from the store!!
Check out the beautiful lithos you get:
The outside and inside cover of the folder the lithos come in.

Rapunzel & Flynn stare down
Oooh!! Rapunzel's Tower!! This one is getting framed!
Rapunzel & Eugene see the light and each other
I got a few other things at the Disney store, but I'll be showing those off in another post.
Shopping done, we headed back to the CF for dinner....which was AMAZING!! So good!! I didn't have room for dessert by the time we finished our stuffed mushrooms (without clam! my shellfish allergy and love of mushrooms rejoice in unison!), salad, and steak, I had to ask for the carrot cake to go.
Once we got home and dinner had settled a bit it took me 3 attempts to finish the carrot cake....an enormous slice and oh so good!!!
So, to sum things up....Cheesecake Factory is phenomenal if you don't mind waiting and/or spending money at the mall; Hello Kitty + Sparkly = OOOoo!; and preorder Tangled today (it comes out March 29)!!
Have a wonderful day Girlys!!
