Christmas Date

On Saturday night, Clay and I went on a Christmas date. Both of us had SUCH crazy weeks that it was a much-deserved treat to spend some time with just us two. :)

We started off with one-hour massages at Massage Envy.
I got a prenatal massage for the first time, and although it was a little strange to lay on my side instead of my stomach, it was absolute heaven! This changing body is developing quite a few new aches and a massage was just what I needed. Clay has been working hard too, so a little relaxation was overdue for him as well.

Once we were nice and relaxed, we headed over to Fireside Pies 
in the new Seventh Street development for some dinner. 

It was quite crowded when we arrived, but they had space available at the bar so we took it. That meant we had a great vantage point of the chefs preparing our food and pulling pizzas from the wood-fired oven - so fun!

We started off with the modern caesar salad, served family-style.
It was super-yummy and just what my belly was craving!

Then we finished up with the Iowa Prosciutto Pizza with arugula. (Sorry, I couldn't find a picture.) It was also scrumptious! The crust was nice and thin, a perfect combination of crispy and chewy with some nice air bubbles around the edges. It reminded me of the pizza in Italy!

After that, we made a quick stop by Starbucks to get some hot chocolate
before heading over to the Chesapeake building to admire/ photograph the lights. 
And apparently we weren't the only ones with that idea; there were so many people out!
It was quite a challenge to get a photo without people - or cars, though we managed to get a few good ones...


It was such a wonderful evening to enjoy the festivity of the holiday season
and spend some time together just the two of us - although we're looking forward
to the day when we can share hot cocoa and Christmas lights with Baby Rich! :D
