If You Like Margaritas...And Getting Caught In The Rain

Then you would have had a blast on Dom and my date last night!  We made the impromptu decision to walk the .4 miles from our complex to downtown Lakewood Ranch since it was a gorgeous, hot, and sunny evening.  We walked over, sat down outside at a little Mexican restaurant, snap chatted Erin (because you can't have Mexican and not snap Erin) and Dom ordered a pitcher of margaritas.

...I should have known then that it would be a good night!  However, after a few rounds of drinks and our food we heard the stereotypical distant roll of thunder, but didn't think much of it.  Storms roll around all the time down here, so a little thunder was nothing.  Plus it was still brilliant sunshine.

Fast forward about 2.3 minutes.  The winds changed, the sky went black and it started positively pouring!  Everyone at the tables around us got up and sprinted inside the restaurant, but Dom and I were kind of trapped under our umbrella so we stayed put.

Right before the clouds broke!

As the rain continued we realized we were kind of stuck.  I had an umbrella, but it was absolutely no match for the rain.  So what did we do?

Poured another round, Dom took out his phone, turned on some Blake Shelton Pandora, and enjoyed having the whole patio (and street!) to ourselves.  We talked about anything and everything, and just watched the storm come in.  We drank, listened to country and didn't care about our to-do lists since there was no way we could leave!  I can't remember the last time we weren't each focused on our own things and really had time to bond, and in such an unexpected day!  Nice fancy date nights are really fun, but sometimes it's better to get some pina coladas margaritas and get caught in the rain.


  1. I love that Mexican place, right in downtown LR. ahhh. We need a date night soon soon soon! Welcome to Florida, where it rains every 10 minutes, I love how you rolled with it, I'll have to remember that:)

  2. Haha this sounds so fun! It's all about those little moments in life :)

  3. I love that you just stayed and enjoyed it! Florida summer rains are my favorite, as long as they're not attached to a hurricane. And it's nice that the umbrella was big enough to keep you guys dry! You know, I've grown up in Sarasota and really haven't spent much time in Lakewood Ranch at all. I should grab the husband and go over there for a little date night. We might be moving to that side of town in a few months!
