Last night my hubby and I got dressed up and headed out for dinner. It was only the second time this year we’ve had a date night together and it was SO much fun!
We had a 6pm booking at one of my favourite restaurants, Nobu and because it was still light, we were able to watch everyone having fun out by the pool as we enjoyed champagne and yellowtail sashimi. Yum yum!
Then it was onto another of my favourite restaurants, Bistro Guillaume where we shared dessert overlooking the pool. Since Crown has been rebranded, it is truly world class. Sitting outside on the terrace I felt like I was back in Dubai where I lived for a few years. I told my hubby I felt like I was on holiday, even though we were only about fifteen minutes from home.
I wore a Sass and Bide dress that I wore to dinner at Varitas on the Gold Coast this time last year. A few days later we found out we were pregnant with Chloe Bear, so it was very special to wear the same dress one year on and look back on 2013; how much has happened, how lucky we are to have another gorgeous little girl in our lives and what we’re hoping for in 2014.
After dessert, we decided we weren’t quite ready to go home, and headed to the champagne lounge La Vie for a nightcap. We watched the world go by and listened to a band play in the lobby lounge, it was the perfect way to end our evening.
The best part of our date night? After dinner, dessert, drinks and live music – we were home just after 9pm! Even better still, both girls slept through the night and so did we. Bliss!
I’m not going to leave it so long until another date night, in fact I’m going to make a dinner reservation in the next few days just to make sure we go out again very soon. There are SO many restaurants I want to try, and now that sweet Chloe is a bit older – it’s easier to head out for a few hours.
I popped a couple of pics up on Instagram and Facebook last night and was amazed at how many other people hadn’t had many nights out together this year, so I’m thinking we should all make a resolution for 2014 to have more date nights!

When was your last date night? Where did you go?
Have you ever kept a special dress or outfit and then worn it again at a later date?0
