summer please hurry up and arrive.
back to the eating out...friday i had a wonderful 3.5 hour lunch with 2 lovely friends at panera bread. i know there isn't anything particularly special about panera but i always want to go because i like their salads (and cookies) and i was in desperate need of some time to sit, eat and chat with friends without trying to wrangle a 4 month old at the same time. friday night gregg and i were both wanting pizza and in an effort to maximize our potential pizza intake and minimize our costs we made the ever so brilliant decision to visit cici's. never again. we always have to learn the hard way about things such as this when it should be pretty obvious that an "all you can eat" pizza buffet is never a good option and especially an "all you can eat" pizza buffet in a very sketchy neighborhood. it was an experience-i will leave it at that.
saturday night's dinner more than made up for the pizza failure on friday night. saturday night was date night. we hadn't been out alone since our anniversary a month ago and we thought it was about time to go out again. i think a once a month date night is a pretty realistic goal for us right now. anyway-we went to eat at cowtown diner downtown. this place was fantastic. it was a diner with a trendy-upscalish. i was in the mood for a home cooked type meal and that is exactly what we got. i choose a meal called "thanksgiving 365" and it was fabulous and gregg ordered pot roast and i was tempted to eat half of his plate too. after dinner we went for a quick shopping trip at marshall's right before it closed. we had fun trying on hats and wondering around. our sweet friends watched abbey for us which made this wonderful night possible.
whew-i have just typed a lot of words-i am sure there about 100 typos in all that but i really don't feel like reading it all to check for them. you'll just have to figure it out for yourself.
