{something wonderful} a date day with my true love

I'm off this week. It's a good thing. But my charming husband is not. In fact, he's working overtime right now like a rock star. But since the weekend was spent out of town, he took Tuesday off with me. It was delightful.

We enjoyed brunch at a *new* St. Louis spot called Half&Half over in Clayton. It was simply delicious. I can't wait to go back. I couldn't decide between the egg sandwich or the blackberry french toast with marscapone cheese. I went with the most amazing egg sandwich that's ever touched these lips. And now, next time, I might have to just get both. Jv went with the very yummy steak sandwich. It was the bartender's favorite, too {since it was so packed, and we had a movie date to catch, we sat at the bar}.

One of my favorite parts was the chai tea latte. It's the best chai tea latte in all of St. Louis hands down. I may have to treat myself if they are open and I am early on my way to work. I might even have to grab an egg sandwich to go...maybe my next early start day will start with this delightful breakfast.

After brunch, we headed over to our old stomping grounds--the Central West End--to walk around a bit and catch a movie at The Chase. We saw the new Jason Reitman {Juno, Up In the Air} film, Young Adult. I have to say I really enjoyed it. It was funny and heartfelt at the same time. Plus, the soundtrack is great. I really loved this one by Teenage Fanclub.

After that we even headed over to Pottery Barn Kids to browse some cute baby stuff that makes us wish we were millionaires. We finished our delightful day with some yummy pigs in a blanket and a few episodes of House Hunters. I wish every day was a day off with my one true love.
