YAY for three day weekends!! They’re the best.
We will do it a little backwards this time, because I don’t have many pictures, except for Frday evening, so we will save them for last.
Because Monday was President’s Day (thanks Uncle Abe and Pres Washington), we had a paid vacation day from work. (YAY). Monday morning Ric and I went to the gym. Monday afternoon Leah (Sis), Christi and I went to The Lincoln Theatre (Yes, I said HI to Uncle Abe) to see He’s Just Not That Into You. It was a matinee, plus at the super cheap theatre, so it only cost $4.00 for my ticket. (As opposed to the $9.00 I paid on Sunday.)
It was good, but my antsy self was getting a little antsy towards the end – it was LONG!!!
On Sunday, it was a pretty lazy day. Later that evening I decided that I really wanted to go see Confessions of a Shopaholic. So I called up my awesome friend Melissa and met her at the O’Fallon 15.
I LOVED the movie. It was one of my favorites. Of course, I have a thing for chick flicks, so I knew I was going to love it, plus it was the ONLY movie that I really wanted to see in the theatre. DEFINITELY going to have to buy that one when it comes out on DVD.
Saturday was Valentine’s Day. The morning of Valentine’s Day we spent with my family helping Grandma move into her apartment. It wasn’t too bad, as most of it was done, thanks to Aunt Karen. We had to leave Highland by 3:30, as Ric had made reservations for dinner in Chesterfield for 7:00, and we still had to make it home to shower and change. I had NO idea where we were going, so I was just along for the ride on the way there. We ended up at Wild Horse Grill in Chesterfield. It was pretty good. . .though I don’t think I picked out the best meal for a restaurant like this. I should have tried something different, NOT thinking we were at Red Lobster. (ha)
For dinner Ric had the Cowboy Porter House.
24 oz. cut topped with a smoked Cheddar, shiitake mushroom, spinach, and port wine veal glaze potato hash.
He LOVED it. Said it was tasty. I didn’t have a bite of the actual steak, though I did have a bite of the smoked cheddar with some of the glaze, and that WAS yummy!!!
The potatos and veggies were scrumptious though! 🙂
Afterwards we used Ric’s handy dandy TomTom (which he named DinkDink) and typed in Cold Stone, to find one that wasn’t TOO close (since we were pretty full), but not too far away either. We ended up at the Cold Stone in Kirkwood. If you know me, you know I’m a Cold Stone FREAK!!! 😉
Ric got the “Coffee Lovers Only”. I think he picked this one because he KNEW I wouldn’t want to taste it! 😛
Friday was Ric’s 33rd birthday. I left work around 3:00.
That evening we met some friends at Applebees for dinner. Then we headed to Jerzey’s. (We rarely go there anymore, just usually for special occasions (St. Pat’s day and b-days).
As you will see, the pictures get crazier by the end of the night.
Friends Melissa and Chris
Leah (Sis) and I with our Martinis.
I wasn’t going to drink, I rarely do ever anyway. Christi made me. The first was a mistake that the waitress just left at our table for anyone to drink. Then Christi ordered me another. I figured I may as well drink during dinner, since I was NOT going to drink at night, since I opted to be Ric’s DD. (Though, he actually didn’t need one – he rarely drinks anymore either) 🙂
I think I was drinking a kiwi one at this time.
Ric’s b-day ice cream, that he only
wanted got one or two bites of – because then I stole it. It’s okay, he loves his wife, and he isn’t much of an ice cream eater anyway. Though SOMEONE else is and was excited for FREE ice cream!!!
Then it was time to head to Jerzey’s.
When we got there, Christi was obviously really excited that her vodka gimlet came in a glass this time (instead of in a plastic cup). She said, “Take a picture of this!!”
The Three Stooges, once again. (There was something we were trying to accomplish here. We were trying to get a vertical picture of the three of us for some frame that Christi has and wanted a picture of us going this way. I think this is the winner.)
It was a pretty good weekend. THANKFULLY it is already Friday and the new weekend is almost already here!! 😀 😀 YAY
