Impromptu Date Night

Friday night is our usual night out on the town- just me and the hubs.  Last weekend we were kind of running out of ideas for what to do.  We had a gift card to the gateway that Braedon found from when he was fifteen- get this- it still worked!  We knew we'd already started the night off right.  We headed to Happy Sumo for dinner and filled up on sushi and miso soup.  As we were leaving we heard some live music coming from an Art Gallery nearby.  We wandered inside and discovered that they were having a contest between all these new artists and they invited us to cast our vote!  We had fun walking around and eating the (free) cookies provided at the event.  Why did we not know about this guys??  With City Creek being so awesome, we kinda forgot about the Gateway.  After the winner was chosen and they started speeches, we snuck out and headed to barnes and noble.  It's sort of a problem- I could spend days in there!  And also a lot of money.  While we were walking back to our car we stopped at a gum ball station and laughed our heads off trying the most outrageous flavors of gum.  Plus Braedon almost chipped his tooth. 

^^ Five gumballs later... ^^
Finally, we noticed this drink/candy shop on our way out and headed in to purchase a little dessert (I guess you could say I have a sweet tooth -_-).  Little did we know we had hit the jackpot!  This place had over 500 different flavors of sodas, and 
tons of old school/ new school (?) candy!  We left with some spearmint flavored root beer and vintage squirt + sour spaghetti (and a layer of fuzz on our teeth).  I was a happy girl (besides the sugar fuzz).  

^^ Anybody up for some sweet corn & bacon soda?? ^^

What we thought was going to be an ordinary night turned out to be just the opposite!  I love my spontaneous, up-for-anything husband.
