An Impromtu At Home Date Night

This post brought to you by Breyers Gelato Indulgences. All opinions are 100% mine.

This pretty much sums up his day:

Yep…that's my husband.  Passed out during lunch time from exhaustion.  It's been a busy week; not to mention he's been dealing with all the stress from the previous weeks of selling our house and getting ready to move.  Yikes!

So I figured I needed to surprise him this evening…and of course without a babysitter that meant the surprise would consist of a date night at home.  Woohoo!  😉

After 8pm, I checked the baby monitor…Mabel was out.

Then I broke out a movie:

Um, you're seeing that correctly!  The Patriot, a classic gem with Heath Ledger circa 2000!  I mean, seriously, what man wouldn't love to have a date night with his wife while watching Mel Gibson patriotically fight for his country?  Well…since I was planning the date night, it was my choice and he didn't get a say (even though I know he secretly loves that movie…don't judge).

And to sweeten the deal I broke out Breyers Gelato Indulgences.  I just happened to have all four flavors on hand; Vanilla Caramel, Raspberry Cheesecake, Tiramisu, and Triple Chocolate…figured I couldn't go wrong!  Plus with Mabel asleep, that meant I only had to share with Hubs (my mommy brain works like that…I'm totally guilty of eating candy in the other room so that I don't have to share with anyone!).

We decided to share the Vanilla Caramel:

Do you see all of those yummy caramel curls and swirls of caramel?  The vanilla itself was richer and creamier than any other ice cream and my husband was pretty impressed too.  I think it might have actually helped him to forget about work and stress for a few minutes.


I might have also been guilty of sticking my spoon into the other three flavors…and I have to say that I think my favorite has to be Tiramisu.  I've been in love with that dessert ever since I was little so to have that all wrapped up into a gelato…I was in heaven!

    I love that you admit you sneak candy while in the other room because you don’t want to share. I do the same thing!! Sometimes I just want to eat my own peanut butter snickers. HA!

    I would’ve dove straight into the vanilla caramel, but I’m really intrigued by the raspberry cheesecake too!

    I think I’d rather save these for a solo date night… one where the hubs is out, the kids are in bed and I don’t have to share!
