The British Date

My wife is an epic date planner.  Last week she told me that she was planning the most creative date she's come up with yet.  I didn't know what it was, but when I got home from work, I discovered this precious little note on the door from the garage to the house.

You are cordially invited for tea to celebrate DATE NIGHT!  April 24, 2015 6:30 PM At home!
The first thing I saw was the plane ticket.  At first, I thought it was real.  But, I couldn't fathom that she had booked us a trip to London without even talking to me about it.  Then I read the note and realized it was a very cleverly created fake.  (Seen closer below.)
How cool is that?  A plane ticket that to a London themed date night.  That's as good as the real thing.  (Almost.)

Here is Robyn showing off her brilliant fake plane ticket.
The date was really fun.  Robyn had the Beatles playing in the background, and we started out with having a tea party.
Look how fancy.
Robyn bought her fancy tea set at a flea market when we were in Germany.  I've been bugging her for five years to invite me to a tea party.  It finally happened!

After experiencing my first tea party, I have to admit that herbal tea is not my favorite thing in the world.  But I loved all the appetizers that came with it.  Cucumber sandwiches are one of the greatest creations of man.

As I said, the tea party was full of appetizers.  That means there was still a real meal in the works.  It should be noted that the English are not really known for their great food.  However, fish and chips is still pretty good, even if it's not as amazing as the food found in other parts of Europe.

Not quite as fancy but still delicious.

After consuming our delicious fish and chips, it was time to watch a British themed movie.  We watched The Theory of Everything.  Stephen Hawking is cool.  And he's British!  So it totally fit the theme.

Isn't my wife such a good little date planner?  Of course, my turn came next.  We watched The Avengers for my date.  It wasn't as creative, but it included the Hulk, so it was pretty great.  However, even with Iron Man, I think Robyn wins this one.
