This is so incredibly dull I hope you don't fall asleep...

Boy howdy has it been a long week!!

Boyfriend and I have been busy since last Thursday...let me rephrase that, every day since Thursday we have hit the ground running as soon as we got home from work

Are you excited?? 

So we decided that we didn't want to go out to eat on the weekend or on Monday because we were sure it would be ridiculously crowded and we had something else we wanted to do as well

So, we decided that we should go out to eat on Thursday...avoiding the crowds

Little did we know...

We went to:

I had only been there once, and it was while I was in Texas meeting Boyfriend's family

His sisters took me...one of them didn't eat, she just drank some alcoholic drink. The other three ate very little, which meant I ate very, very little. And I didn't get a steak, because they were paying and I felt bad

So Boyfriend and I went so that I could have a real experience of it

And let me say, it was amazing!! We ended up waiting about 40 minutes, but it was well worth it!!

Their rolls are to die for...oh wow they're so divine!!

We got an onion blossom and fried pickles as appetizers 

The blossom was great, but the fried pickles...one or two are okay, but the whole basket was way too much

The steaks were amazingly wonderful though. I had no complaints, and even Boyfriend didn't really complain (which is big for him...he's way picky)

Anyway, it was a good night and we came home stuffed with nummy food

If you haven't been there, I suggest you go as soon as you get an opportunity to

Boyfriend decided that since we were starting to celebrate V-Day early, we should give our gifts early as well

So from Boyfriend I got:


(he didn't get me two bouquets...I just didn't want to deal with the camera and lighting not liking each other)





and:




He's a traditionalist this one :)


I ended up giving him:

















I made him these at Color Me Mine (an amazing, wonderful place that I love) with a friends help


Fortunately he loved them...not like he really had a choice, I couldn't return them....


I also got him a box of chocolates, some sweetarts, and a gift card to Best Buy


It was nice :)


Friday night we went to see the Cinderella ballet at BYU (a local university)


I'm sorry to say that I was so enthralled I completely forgot to sneak some pictures until the very end




I really liked it...it's the first ballet I've been to (don't kill me) and I approve :)


And with that I must depart...it's late and I need to go to sleep :)


No worries, the rest of the weekend and more stories to come!!


Night!!

the fried pickle sounds like it's right up my alley. It sounds like a good meal and a fun time!
I'm glad you had a good VD celebration! I just used the coffee cup my wife made for me at the same place a few years ago... have a great weekend!
