This spring has been so busy with work and Kara finishing her grad classes and Nick searching and finding a new job that there has not been a lot of down time together to just be and relax.  A couple of weeks ago Nick announced that I needed to get my studying done so we could have all Saturday for a date.

It was a great day that started with smoothies at Emerald City Smoothies. We then headed to Cherry Creek shopping area and visited one of our favorites 10,000 Villages as well as a few other shops.  We also headed to a glass art gallery, Pismo to see the new Italian show. It was way out of our league, but amazing to appreciate the art.


We then headed home to get dressed up for dinner and headed to the Melting Pot in Littleton for an amazing lunch/dinner.  We also bought a fabulous Barolo to top off dinner. We were doing the Restaurant Week deal for 5280 and got cheese fondue, salad, meat fondue in an amazing broth and chocolate fondue.  Wow, we were stuffed, but it was very tasty.

We finished the evening at a local art event in Englewood. A Mardi Gras Party with art, music, food and drinks.  We had a great time wandering around and really enjoyed the quiet room where we could talk, until it was invaded by other people.  Oh well, it was fun.  We left there and bought a bottle of port and chocolate to round out the night.  It was a great day out and a break from the mundane of life, classes, work and study.
