Friday night I came home to a freshly groomed puppy, Ryan, and daisies – a marvelous sight!
Ryan buys me flowers frequently [cue the awww's] – they’re my favorite – so I didn’t think much of it until I saw that there was also a card…
A super sappy, super sweet card with a marvelous P.S. message at the bottom…
I was totally surprised! Ryan and I haven’t gone out for a date night in a while [between my tummy troubles and trying to save money, we've kept date nights low-key at home] so we both thought that we should do something special to celebrate our 6-month wedding anniversary but we hadn’t made any plans… Or so I thought
Saturday morning Ryan woke-up to a marvelously super corny card – the back said “At least I didn’t have the cabbage!”…
She gets flowers, he gets a 40, they’re one in the same! I should note that he doesn’t typically drink 40′s but it was a special occasion so a special beer, “The Champagne of Beers,” was only appropriate!
As you can see, the pictures are a bit fuzzy because it was dark and I was using my iPhone, but we have plenty of marvelous memories…
garlic chicken flatbread – balsamic onions, roasted red peppers, mozzarella cheese
arugula salad *seasonal special* – arugula, marinated portobello mushrooms, shaved Parmesan, truffle dressing
artichoke & goat cheese flatbread *seasonal special* – leaf spinach, balsamic onions, roasted peppers
oak-grilled filet mignon – cremini mushrooms, asparagus, garlic mashed potatoes, red wine sauce
chocolate peanut butter mousse mini indulgence – chocolate cake, peanut butter mousse, chocolate shavings
ruby red grapefruit martini *seasonal special* – grapefruit-infused Prairie Organic Vodka with organic agave nectar
We were planning to cap off our marvelous evening with some fro-yo at the newly opened joint just down the street from our house, but it was closed by the time we got there so we settled for TJ’s fro-yo + dark chocolate chips – a tasty improvisation.
P.S. Y’all are probably tired of these Harlem Shake videos but I’ve got just one more…
