After thinking about money and how saving it drives me crazy, I realize that I need to enjoy spending my money. So I planned a fun date night with Tim.
We went to our favorite restaurant in town, A-town Bistro. It is a cool industrial place with that local, farm-to-table food. It reminds me of Seattle restaurants, and we love the boar burger and fries, and I got the cornish hen and waffles (it was smothered in syrup and butter and so delicious!). We also splurged and got the octopus appetizer (not your traditional breaded and fried calamari), and the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. It was such a fun evening out enjoying our favorite foods and supporting the local business. Then we went to the Anacortes Cinema (another local little 3 theater place) to watch the animated movie Sing. Fun movie that was so full of joy and song, and I was smiling the entire time.
It was a great evening out, we spend money, we had a great time and it was worth it.
