A Very French Date Night

Yesterday was simply the very best day!  Mark and I started our day at my nineteen week OB appointment.  We spent about a half hour with my doctor's wonderful ultrasound tech.  There on the screen appeared our perfect little baby.  We saw baby's feet and hands, and we got to see the baby kick and yawn.  To see the baby come to life onscreen makes me feel so special that this baby spends its days living inside of me.  It is truly the most amazing feeling in the world!

To celebrate, Mark and I decided to go for a little date night!  I have been dying to see Midnight in Paris.  So we started our evening at this wonderful French wine bar and bistro called Delachaise.  I had the tomato soup with mini grilled cheese and duck fat fries with a Thai peanut dipping sauce and a malt vinegar aioli.  Mark had the steak frites.  We finished out meal in perfect French fashion - with a cheese plate.  It was such a wonderful meal and reminded us of our time in Paris.  

Following a lovely meal, we headed off to see Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, and company take on the streets of Paris.  This moving was as lovely and quirky as most Woody Allen films are.  The backdrop of Paris was just fabulous.  It was not a deep film, but it was the perfect end to a perfect day.

Have you seen Midnight in Paris?  Do you plan to?


  1. Oh my goodness, you are 19 weeks already??? It's easy for me to say this, but wow, your pregnancy is flying by!

    I actually went to this movie last night and loved it! When the opening scene came on, without thinking, my hand went to my heart and I gasped! I loved recognizing so many of the sights in the film! Made me feel like a "Paris insider". I recently read "A Moveable Feast", so i was familiar w/ the Fitzgeralds and Gertrude Stein, and Hemingway. So I loved it!

    What a fun date for you & Mark!!

  2. What a fun day! I now want to go see this movie!!

  3. Midnight in Paris is possibly one of my favorite films ever!! The fella and I both LOVED it!!

  4. Midnight in Paris was such a fun film. Loved seeing all the Paris sights. I think it is so exciting that our daughter is having her second baby around the same time your precious baby will arrive. She found out last Thursday that she is having a girl..which is great because she has a two year old boy. We are very proud grandparents.
    I am trying to plan our 40th anniversary trip to Paris in Sept and I refer back to your blog all the time to get ideas. Thanks for sharing your trip to Paris.
