Jill Duggar (now officially Jill Dillard) and hubby Derick Dillard of the 19 Kids and Counting gang, returned to the place where he popped the question and she said, 'Yes,' on Thursday. The now-pregnant couple visited the restaurant where they became officially engaged about six months ago.

If it sounds like Jill and Derick have packed a lot into the past half-year, you're right. They became engaged, got married, and now are several weeks into Jill Duggar's pregnancy. The two are excited at the prospect of becoming parents. What a whirlwind sequence of events.

Jill Duggar shared a memory of their dinner at Table Mesa--a Latin restaurant in Bentonville, Arkansas--via Instagram. She captioned the shot, "Hadn't been there since the day we got engaged. Yummy food! #tablemesa #dinnerdate #derickdillard"

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard tied the knot on June 21st--less than three months after their engagement dinner. Less than two months after that, the couple announced they were expecting. Unlike many couples, who wait until they have safely navigated their first trimester, the 19 Kids and Counting couple went public with their pregnancy almost immediately.

"Understanding that the majority of miscarriages happen within the first trimester, and believing that every life is precious no matter how young, we decided to share our joyful news as soon as we could," Jill said in an interview with The New York Post's Page Six several weeks ago.

There is something very intriguing about Jill Duggar and her new life. Fans are no doubt eagerly watching and waiting for her 'baby bump' to expand and to learn about all the baby shower fun and plans she and Derick Dillard will make in anticipation of their soon-to-be bundle of joy.

In the meantime, it's nice that this young couple can enjoy a lovely dinner out--at the place where it all officially began for the two of them. Fortunately Jill's all-day morning sickness has allowed her enough of a break to do so.
