Mafia Date Night

My husband totally surprised me one night after work and
took me on a *much needed* date night.

Lately I feel like we've been two married people
who have gotten SO caught up with our own personal lives
-running errands, working out, playing on sports leagues-
that we went from thinking "What should we do tonight?"
 to automatically thinking "What am doing tonight?" 
...and we don't even have KIDS yet!

So we have no excuse for a weekly date night
and sadly enough that has been neglected lately.
(One of my *new years goals* I should definitely focus
a little more on because hey, marriage is work!)

It just so happened that my husband planned
a random surprise date this week for us.

We went to one of my favorite places to eat.... BJ's Restaurant!

They have THE best pizza ever which we practically inhaled.
They never disappoint.

The real reason why BJ's Restaurant is the *key to my heart*
is because of their Pizookie's! If you don't know what a Pizookie is...
it's a freshly baked, hot out of the oven, rich and delicious cookie topped
with two scoops of vanilla bean ice cream and served in its own deep dish.
Yes, it's absolutely HEAVENLY & will change your life.

This particular night we got the "Pizookie Trio"
which comes with 3 mini Pizookie's so you can try a variety.
We went with: Oreo.... Red velvet.... Chocolate Chip
Three words: TO.DIE.FOR.

After dinner he took me to one of the first hotels built in Vegas...
The Flamingo to see the "Mob Experience"
It's a recently new thing they opened up here in Vegas
and it was actually really cool.

They give you badges with "Mob Names" and send you on your first Mob mission.
You learn about how the Mafia was actually responsible for starting the idea of "Vegas"
and they were making LOADS of money under the table from owning the Casinos.
They have interactive Mob actors as you walk through alley ways and secret doors.
They even show a movie about the Mob too!

So fun & definitely worth checking out!
