Weekend Update

I had an interesting weekend and thought I would share a few details with you. And I'm going to use pictures to illustrate my points and fun headings. Hooray!!

"They're NAKED Mom!"
No. We were not in a museum looking at David. (I used this picture because I didn't think it appropriate to post pictures of what we actually saw.) We were at a restaurant. A restaurant that had been highly recommended to us as a place to take our family. A restaurant that my hubby had been to previously. (BTW, I have mentioned how unobservant my hubby is...Right??)

Looking back the fact that "Casino" was part of the restaurant's name should have been a clue. But this Gambling Momma did not know when to walk away nor when to run. Anyhoo, what with four kids to get situated and settled into seats, it wasn't until after we ordered our food that the hubby and I finally looked around. And BOY! Were our eyes opened!! There were pictures of naked ladies everywhere! And also a picture of naked men riding the Tour de France. That's the one my kids noticed. Fortunately, all the men were sitting on their bikes so we didn't see all their private parts. Needless to say, we skedaddled out of there as quick as possible. Which was quite a while. Remember we had four starving kids with us!

"Well...Nobody's Perfect."

Line uttered at the end of Some Like It Hot. When my boy, Little Joe, is absolutely happy and proud of some accomplishment, he smiles just like Osgood Fielding the Third (played by Joe E. Brown) does at the end of this hilarious movie!! Do you remember that scene? If not, you TOTALLY need to rent this movie and watch it. So funny! Whenever my boy smiles that smile, I think of that line and Jack Lemmon being drug off into the sunset. Ah-hahahahaha!!!

Valentine's Day Menu

The hubby took me out for a date on Valentine's. WOW!!! I haven't been on a date in a long time. And the hubby kicked it up a notch. I think he's trying to impress me or something. He must have forgot that I already married him. ;)

We went to a fancy little restaurant with no naked pictures. The hubby made the reservations a few weeks in advance. Wow! He's never done that before. It was a cozy place, with fountains, outside verandas and gardens, and a Peacock strutting around the place.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am all about the food and I love to try new things. But, I get nervous trying new meats. Yeah, I'm weird. Anyhoo, I had the Rosemary and Garlic Roasted Leg of Lamb--served with mint jelly sauce, garlic mashed potatoes, and baby carrots. And the hubby had Veal Oscar--sauteed veal mounted with crab, grilled asparagus and hollandaise sauce over ravioli. I felt kind of bad ordering lamb and veal. "Baby Killer!" is what I was thinking. I reassured myself by thinking of all the Old Testament Prophets. They ate lamb and fatted calves All the Time! Honest. They did! You can check if you don't believe me!

The hubby knocked it out of the park with this date. Not only did he plan the entire date, he also found the babysitter and got the kids ready for the babysitter. What a dear old man I married. ;)
