It's OK Thursday 2/2

Its Ok Thursdays

Well, it's Thursday again (which means it's almost Friday...yay!) and I am excited to be linking up with Amber once again.

It's Ok...

...that I was so excited to be featured on A Bowl of Lemon's Tuesday link up post this week. I literally squealed out loud.

 ...that I wish we could dine every weekend like we did on Saturday night. Let me explain. My employers gave us a gift certificate to a very fancy, awesome restuarant for Christmas. We decided to use it Saturday and had to make reservations a week ahead. When we arrived at the restaurant, we saw why it was so hard to get it: it only held 23-25 people and served one dinner per evening. Immediately upon walking in, hubby and I gave each other concerned looks thinking we had walked into the back of the restaurant. What was this? And why were we walking in through the kitchen? We wondered. Well, it wasn't the back door. It was so neatly set up. We walked in through the small kitchen, sat down  and enjoyed a romantic six course meal with candlelight. YUM!

 ...that Sunday when we finally left the house in the afternoon, we realized that Saturday night we had walked in from our nice dinner out and shut the door with the key. in. the. door. ALL. night. long. Very scary but nothing bad happened, thank goodness. I blame hubby...

...that I am bummed hubby has to work at his internship the next two Saturdays/Sundays. always be disappointed when my to-go mug of coffee runs out work in the mornings. And to always want more.

...that I absolutely love being married to a chef and love the delicious, amazing meals he puts in front of me! Not only that, but he teaches me so much, it's great! be thinking I got off the hook with catching this sickness the family I nanny for had the last couple of weeks (104 temps, coughing, sore throats, etc). feel like I know a blogger after reading their blog for 3+ years when I've never actually met them in real life. And, to feel sad when they are going through a heartbreak right now...

...that it's an easy decision for me to choose: dinner out or hubby cook for Valentine's day. I'd rather spend the money on getting exactly what I want thankyouverymuch! Hubby is going to make an amazing meal for us. More on this later!
