WORKOUT – Ran outside 11.0 miles/1:29
This was a tough run; I had to stop a few times to catch my breath and I didn’t really get in the groove until the end. Oh well, 11 tough ones beats 0 easy ones.
You guys said you wanted to see more of the Get some clothes on! segment so here goes:
Last night my Man and I went on a date. He had to ask me out a couple times; I kept turning him down. Gotta play hard to get, you know.
Pretty much everything came courtesy of my mom. She just sent me the jacket, top and leggings, all of which came from Costco. The brand of the leggings and top is Matty M which is sometimes sold at Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack, and the jacket is Calvin Klein. I’m not sure how much each was, but it probably pretty reasonable at the ‘ol Costker.
I was going to wear some high heels, but then thought that walking in the dark in a haunted house in 5.5 inch heels would be scarier than the actual house so I went with some Tahari wedges.
If you’re ever in the area, I’d recommend checking out the Garden Walk; it’s a new upscale outdoor mall with restaurants, bars, shopping, etc. It’s super clean , not crowded and really cute looking too.
We saw Fire + Ice and decided to try it not knowing what it was. Ended up being a good choice.
Fire +Ice is an all-you-can-eat Mongolian BBQ on steroids. Not only is there the traditional stir fry, you can have hamburgers, cheesesteaks, hot dogs, chicken parmesan, basically anything you can concoct, grilled on their hibachi grill. And you choose the sauce and flavorings, and they had a ton.
We sat outside by the fire pit; this thing put off some major heat. Good thing it was date night because it was getting all hot and steamy out there.
We started off with the salad bar; my manly monster salad destroyed the husband’s girly little one.
I had a $5 chocolate martini that wasn’t really that good. I didn’t even finish it, shoulda skipped that one and kept my money.
The man had 2 different bowls: a chicken, broccoli, noodles, teriyaki bowl and then a Tex Mex Fajita bowl with chicken, green peppers, and onions which was by far, the best of the night. They also bring out tortillas or rice if you want for your stir fry and fajitas.
I went for a ton of vegetables (my bowl was twice as large as his), Mahi mahi, and teriyaki sauce. Mine was good but the Tex Mex sauce that he had was better.
After dinner we sat by the fire pit for awhile which was super relaxing. I wanted to curl up and take a nap since it was nearly my bedtime, 8:30 and all…
Each dinner was $15.95 which isn’t bad for a fresh, all-you-can-eat dinner. Plus, it was fun to go all Emeril Lagassi and create your own concoctions.
The husband really put the moves on me by going to Fuzziwig’s Candy Factory for dessert; I love candy stores like this. And always end up spending way too much money…
But this time we actually came home with some candy, and it still hasn’t been eaten! Normally by the time we step out of the store, it’s gone.
And then we topped off the night by going to the haunted house The Empty Grave. Through Groupon I bought 2 tickets for $14, which was a good deal since tickets are normally $15 each.
But it was a pretty crappy haunted house. I don’t know if it was even worth $7. I mean, I didn’t even peepee my pants… at all. But date night was fun, clean chonies or not.
What did you do on your last date night? And please don’t tell me you made a baby.
