Date Night Was Fantastic!

And the weekend is also pretty fantastic so far. It's still pretty freakin' cold outside...but the sun is shining and that makes me happy! It really is the little things (like the sunshine) that excite me most.

So yeah, we got to the restaurant around 7:00 and the place was packed...they tell us it will be about a 20 min wait...totally cool, though it irks me that NO restaurant these days take reservations on the weekends...WHY is that??? Anyways, we ended up getting in and seated within 5 minutes. Had some drinks, yummy bread, salad...and then a YUMMY steak and loaded baked potatoe. Then I asked the waiter to surprise me with a drink, something girly but not too sweet lol. He got his GM to make it and the wait staff all stood around to see my reaction...they did good! When I gave them the thumbs up they all breathed a huge sigh of relief...one girl came over and told me she was kind of expecting the ew face...

The yummy concoction was

triple sec
vodka
rum
pineapple juice

You should all give it a try sometime!

Well I guess that's enough rambling for now...later!

I love pineapple juice in my drinks.

Sounds like an awesome weekend! I'm so jealous of the sunshine where you are. It's been raining here everyday for two weeks straight.
