Best night out in a long time

Ember Grey

Today is my first time linking up at Grateful Heart Monday over at Ember Grey!  This week I am grateful for a long awaited night out with my husband.

The weekend after our anniversary we were able to get someone (my mom) to watch the little one for us, so we could have a nice night out.

My husband isn't very good at planning things, BUT he did make us reservations for 6pm at the fancy restaurant where he proposed.  Other than that we thought maybe we would catch a movie...   Well, Paige ended up taking a longer nap than expected so we ended up missing the showing time for the movie we wanted to see.  We were trying to figure out what we wanted to do on the way to my mom's and my husband got an idea....but he wouldn't tell me what it was.


We still hadn't eaten lunch so he surprised me by taking me to The Cheesecake factory!  I loooove cheesecake.  And all of their food is amazing. We split a lunch and got a dessert to split.

After we left there we saw that they were having an art and music festival literally right outside!  So we shopped around a little there and then we headed to Hofbrauhaus right across the street.  Hofbrauhaus is a German restaurant/bar that brews their own beer on site.  And wait until you see their mugs.....
Yeah, HUGE!!

Once we finished our ginormous beers there we decided it was about time to head to our restaurant, The Monterrey Bay Fish Grotto.  It is an amazing restaurant on Mount Washington overlooking a beautiful view of Pittsburgh.

Most amazing food EVER!

I'm not going to lie, this was a very expensive night out but it was absolutely amazing!  It probably won't happen again until next year but it was worth it!

  1. Congrats on your anniversary! And Hofbrauhaus is so much fun (been to one in another city). Hopefully they had an oompah band serenading you with only the best German drinking songs ;-)

    Cheers!

    1. I agree! It's definitely necessary to forget about money for a while. Sometimes we get a little too obsessed with watching what we spend that it's nice to not worry for a night. And thanks!!

  3. Happy anniversary! It sounds like a brilliant celebration :) I love Hofbrauhaus, I spent an evening at the Munich brewery during Oktoberfest a few years ago. Those steins are ridiculous aren't they?! A litre of beer....!! I could never finish more than a 1/3 of each one haha.
    Splurging once in a while is fun to do - especially when it's for a great occasion!
