FMK and I started a new tradition and two weeks in, I don’t know what has taken us this long to pull the trigger on this idea.  Since Knox was a baby (two years ago!), we have said we are going to get a standing babysitter one night a week that we could set aside as a date night or couples night with friends.  Well, we found two sweet sisters (that I ironically babysat when they were little!) that Knox loves and we now officially have a date night!

We are only two weeks in, but it has been so fun checking restaurants and movies off our list of places we have been wanting to try since we moved here, but just haven’t gotten around to yet.  Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t like we never got out before.  Knox has a great nanny that keeps him sometimes and we are blessed to have family in town that is always willing to help, as well.  It was just the planning part that always set us back.  We aren’t the best planners over here when it comes to making reservations and setting plans.  But now that we always know what night of the week is our night, we can make reservations in advance and invite friends to join us or just leave it a special night for just us.

If you are in Houston, a few new favorites to try are A State of Grace, the new iPic theatre in River Oaks District and The Pass and Provisions (I know this one isn’t new, but I finally tried it)!  Oh, and if you need to kill some time with a pre-dinner drink, Anvil Bar and Refuge has amazing cocktails!  If you’ve never been to Houston, it’s time to plan a trip!  I am working on a fun round-up of reasons to visit, but while we are on the topic of food, here is an article from the Washington Post about why Houston is one of America’s best food cities.
