I returned from work and presented Margaret with two beautiful Gerber Daisy flowers (her favorite flower, mind you!).
We then proceeded to drive to dinner where I had window seat reservations at Grub. I picked this place for two reasons: 1) Margaret LOVES mac 'n' cheese, and 2) we came here once before and had an amazing experience. The food really hit the spot and I we were definitely enjoying our time together. I got the mac 'n' cheese with add-ons of bacon, sun dried tomatoes, and truffle oil. Let's just say that both of us would do terrible things to get our hands on a dish that good! Margaret got the chicken breast burger and it was definitely a solid combination for the mac 'n' cheese. We shared both dishes so we both had a little slice of heaven.
Dinner finally came to an end and we were on route to the main event: ice skating at the Yerba Buena Ice Skating rink!! Margaret has been ice skating before and I never have, but we have talked about ice skating for a REALLY long time. I thought it would be a really fun date to get out and do something that we have never done together before. We shared a ton of laughs when Margaret screamed every time she almost fell and at the times when I tried doing spins in the air. Let's just say that both of us had moments of getting on a personal level with the ice.

This was only one of two times that
I saw her fall. Not too shabby!

Dessert WAS planned but because of a few financial surprises with the date and our exhaustion from skating, we decided to forgo dessert and just get a really large coke instead. All in all, this was a very fun date and is something that I hope to do again with her!
