Grateful . .

I'm a little late with my grateful this week, but couldn't miss linking up with gorgeous Beth over at Baby Mac, whom is hosting this weeks grateful, as the lovely Maxabella enjoys a well earned break.

I am so grateful for date night. {The first in a year!} Mr S and i went out last night to celebrate our anniversary. We headed to our favorite local Japanese restaurant. As always. A brisk walk around the corner, in the chilly night air. We feasted on sushi and sake, to our hearts were content and  stomachs were fuller than they ought to be. Oh so grateful to have my favorite crispy cucumber wrapped salmon sushi. No one else i know makes it, apart from the ever so talented, Steven, master sushi chef. And it is the best.

So grateful for a night out on our own without the little ones. Grateful for a fun night with my gorgeous husband. Grateful for the adult conversation. Grateful to my sweet brother for babysitting. And grateful for five happy years of marriage. May there be many more ahead.

{I am also grateful i got to meet the very talented Megan Washington today when she popped into the salon, she was so kind and polite, while i pretended to be cool.. but in reality was giggly and starstruck.}

What are you grateful for this week?

Happy Weekend!

  1. Aaaaah! You got to meet Washington? ACE! SO lucky to have someone like that in your salon, my most famous client was on neighbours about 10 years ago, oh and the wife of the captain of England's cricket team!
    I would have totally tried to act cool, but would likely be blubbering and messing up my words. A try hard really! I love her!

    Congratulations on your anniversary! How nice to get out for the evening.

  2. So lovely to have a night out with your husband. Congratulations on your anniversary.
    How cool to see Megan Washington- she has the most beautiful voice!

  3. That sushi looks ridiculously good! YUM!

  4. It's so hard to stop eating when good sushi is on the plate! Yours looks deeeelicious! gxo

  5. That's so lovely - I was wondering what you might do for your anniversary. Mr G and I have not had a date night since Miss A was born. The first time we will be on our own will be our wedding day when we go to the registry without her for an hour. I guess that counts as a pretty special 'date' for us! xx

  6. Ah date night. For our first ten years we would have a date night at home every week...I had actually forgotten about them, life just got in the way. I think it's something I should pencil in.
    Happy Anniversary Jody.

  7. Great piccy of the sushi, sounds a great place. We haven't had a date night in far too long.We used to go out to the movies early... what happened to that? Glad you had a lovely time.

  8. Sounds like you had a great date night :) And OMG megan washington is awesome. I would have been starstruck too :)

  9. Congrats to you and your five years with hubby! No small feat in today's world! The sushi also looks fabulous - things to be grateful for indeed! :)
