last Date Night before New Year

Last night Alex and I partook in our regular Friday night ritual……date night! We choose either a new or favorite restaurant in Austin, dress up, and go out to enjoy eachother’s company!

Usually our trend is to try a different place in Austin on date night but last night we wanted to go somewhere where we knew the food would be delicioso! So I suggested ClayPit in Central Austin. It’s a contemporary Indian restaurant with a very modern yet cozy atmosphere and the place is HHUUUGGEEE! It has three stories of dining space!

To drink I had their mango lemonade for the first time which was perfectly tart and sweet. For an appetizer we tried their curry crabcakes for the first time with their house Indian-esque tartar sauce (so good). And for the main entree we both ordered the Coconut Curry…..Alex got his with chicken and I got mine with Paneer (Indian cheese dumplings). As always the food was fantastic and I stuffed myself. But not too much, I made sure to have dessert when we got home…..vanilla pudding and fresh strawberries drizzled with nutella (what other chocolate drizzle is more appropriate?)

Upon returning to our apartment complex we found the cutest little kitten in our parking lot. We could tell it was well fed and very people friendly and couldn’t bare to leave it in the cold especially since it was probably hungry and thirsty. However, we were weary of bringing it up to the apartment as Saci (the best dog ever) would probably FREAK it out. We were very surprised though with how well they got along. At first we had them in separate rooms and allowed Saci to get used to the meowing, then we brought them together and Saci couldn’t have behaved more beautifully. I was definitely a proud mother.

We ended up feeding the cat chicken cold cuts and it grabbed a few mouthfuls of Saci’s dog food. It also drank A LOT of water. Since our apartment isn’t cat friendly (no litter box) we tried calling every friend nearby that is. Unfortunately we came up with nothing and had to put the kitten back where we found her just in case her family was looking for her. We gave her more food once she was outside and hoped for the best.

This morning while taking out Saci I called for her and did my best to look around the area we found and returned her to. She was nowhere in sight, hopefully she’s warm and safe!

Also yesterday after work I was able to finally get my hair done. My hairdresser is super talented and super affordable which also means she has a TON of clients. I had to wait a month after calling for an appointment to even see her. It was well worth the wait as always. She colored, washed, cut, and styled my hair all for $60…….best deal in town, well as far as I know anyway!

more later…..

    My little Saci sounds like she’s better around cats than I am. What a good little ragazza.

    And you dyed your hair? Is it drastic in a good way? I’ve been contemplating going brunette, but I’m timid because of the Big A… last thing I want is an ugly ‘doo for your big day. When you show people pics later, I don’t want you to have to say, “um… that’s a gypsy that wandered into the shot – she acted like she knew me… weird, I know…” I’ll hold a change can just in case.
