Date Night


David and I went on our first “date” since Chloe was born last night. I thought it was going to be weird, going somewhere without the baby.  Instead it felt fine, especially knowing that Chloe was having fun, safe at home with Grandma Sandy. We had dinner at Lovely Hula Hands and then went for dessert at Papa Haydn.

Getting dessert at Papa Haydn is one of my very favorite things to do in Portland. They have an entire menu of only desserts, and it is always so hard to narrow it down to one. I finally decided on the Autumn Meringue (swiss meringues layered with chocolate mousse and pot de creme, wrapped in ribbons of chocolate) and David chose the Boccone Dolce, which was basically the white version of mine (swiss meringues drizzled with semi-sweet chocolate, layered with fresh fruit and chantilly cream) and we didn’t even consult each other. Paired with two Illy lattes, it was a little slice of heaven.

  1. Sounds like you had fun. It’s good to hear that you went out. It takes work to organize it all, but it’s so worth it.
    We love Papa Haydn’s so much we had them make our wedding cake. It was perfect!

  2. Mmmm, what a yummie date! 😉

  3. Okay, do they ship those desserts, they look yummy!!!!

    Date night can easily get lost when baby arrives, but I applaud the two of you for doing it, keep doing it as it is important!!! 🙂

  4. That sounds like a delicious date! And I agree, those desserts look phenomenal. The next chance you get for a date night you should check out springpad’s date night planner – it’s a great way to plan dates so you can make the most out of your night! And I think you’d really like springpad in general, it’s a great to organize all the aspects of your life.
