Double Date

Every once in a while, couples need to do something refreshing to keep things interesting. Sometimes, the same old same old can get… old. Double dating can change up the normal routine by allowing other people to be a part of your date night.

d9w3oRoss and I decided to double date with my cousin Andrew and his girlfriend Taylor tonight. The four of us have been friends for year and we always make time for each other. We usually like to pick restaurants that we haven’t been to and experience them together. Other times, we like to visit some of our favorite spots just for old time’s sake. Tonight we did both.

We decided to have dinner at Rotolo’s Pizzeria in Houma since we had never visited there before. It had been a while since we last saw each other, so our pizza was accompanied by a lot of catching up.

Afterwards, we decided to go to our favorite ice cream parlor, Scarlet Scoop. Saying goodbye at the end of out double dates with Andrew and Taylor are always so hard, so our nights are usually always prolonged by getting ice cream.

Then and Now

I remember going on my first date with my boyfriend well over a year ago. I gave him props for knowing exactly where I would want to go without even having to ask… a sushi restaurant. Since then, we have spent many lunch and dinner dates at our favorite local sushi place, Geaux Fish. We decided to call this long week a wrap by stopping there today for some sushi rolls. To our surprise, our hostess seated us at the very table we sat at for our first date. After laughing over the irony, we got to reminisce on how much has changed since our first date. We also realized that there are some things that may never change, like how we ALWAYS seem to end up at the same sushi restaurant (but hey, who’s complaining). 

After a very satisfying meal, we headed back to Ross’ apartment to play some Mario Kart because, you know, what else are a couple of 20-something-year-olds going to do on a Friday night, right?
