First off, you did VERY well by being up front with her about wanting to take her out to dinner and not wanting to wait 6 months, etc.
Your second move was a mistake, where you became whiny and a little "married man" by calling her sweetheart and asking about her day. No guy cares how a woman's day went, don't act like you.
