My husband and I have been on a dating streak lately. 3 months in a row! We have left our boys in the care of a close friend/auntie to go out for a few hours or so. My husband has been very creative in planning our dates. I am not really a dinner and movies type of gal anymore, so this has been right up my alley. For instance, last month we went on a bike ride and then for pizza and a walk at Balboa Beach.
This month he took notice of my 40 Before 40 list and planned a date night at Seabirds Kitchen in Costa Mesa, CA (http://seabirdskitchen.com/). It's located at The Lab or "anti-mall" and is a pretty cool place to visit.
I first found out about Seabirds from my brother when it was a food truck. They serve vegan/vegetarian food. I fell in love with the Beer Battered Avo Tacos and Beet Salad. When they closed the truck service down to open the restaurant, I sure missed the food! Well, last night I was reunited with my beloved tacos :). They were just as good as I remembered! Just wish this place was closer to home.
Afterwards we stopped off at a little coffee and tea house called "Milk and Honey." It's across the street from The Lab at another shopping/dining area called The Camp. Two words: Lavender Latte. Wow. I will be waiting for the day I can experience this dreamy drink again.
It was a great night with great company and great food. :) And one item checked off my list.
