Dinner and Indy

So, we had our fancy dinner Friday night and it was ............ different!! I've never actually eaten anywhere this fancy!! It was really nice. We had 12 in our party and were at this 'special' table that was really cool but a little cramped!!

We all had appetizers, drinks, entree's and dessert. Jason had boiled shrimp for his appetizer - but yuck - they're cold!! And in a place this nice, shouldn't the shrimp be peeled for you? He didn't mind. He also ordered a fish - a whole fish for dinner. The biggest platter I've ever seen came to our end of the table and this giant fish was there - looking at the girl across from me. He followed that up with a molten lava thing that was pretty good but smaller than we thought. We were expecting this mountain of chocolate and some sparks as the lava exploded! lol

I ordered Fried Green Tomatoes with shrimp as my appetizer and it was wonderful. I hate to say they were better than LuLu's - but they were really good!! I had Gulf Coast crab cakes for dinner and they were yummy but by this time I was pretty full. For my dessert, I tried to drink a chocolate martini. My friend Carol loves them and I just knew it would be great and it wasn't at all. I could barely test the chocolate and shouldn't that be an important flavor??

Over all - the dinner was great. I was pretty stuffed when we left. We headed to the movies afterward for Indian Jones! I don't want to ruin anything for you but it wasn't what I expected. It wasn't bad, but it didn't have the ending I had hoped for. I think you will either love it or be sorely disappointed in Steven Spielberg. I was disappointed!!

We came home (after having shared a giant bag of Reece's Pieces and a big Mr. Pibb), took our Tylenol PM and went to bed. Well, three hours later, we were still laying there - AWAKE. The last time I looked at the clock it was around 4 in the morning. Jason was awake as long as me. That sugar and caffeine really messed us up. We were tired all morning.

Last night was super fun. We had some friends over for dinner and games. We played Cranium Pop - it was so much fun! I think we each one a game - although they were clearly better at it than us. Next time, we'll do much better - I'm sure!! We just played, talked about Cole (which is always a long story but one we love to tell - so sorry Alicia if we talked way too long!!), and had some delicious brownies and homemade mac and cheese. A fun time was had by all.

Today, Jason is still sleeping!! Hopefully we're heading to Alabama Adventure today!! Right now I'm eating some breakfast and watching one of my all time fav movies - Clueless!!! I love it!!

Have a wonderfully Clueless day!!

I will have to perfect making the martinis at home, then have you over! Sorry you didn't like it! Bone fish grill makes the BEST ones!!!

Was that the first time having a chocolate martini? J. got me to drink one one time because he thought I would like it. It was disgusting.

Sounds like you guys have had a good weekend. (Except for the not sleeping.)
