What a fun belated Valentine’s celebration we had last night!
Ben made me a drink around 5:30, while I was getting ready ~
^ Haha ~ Vodka drink, in a wine glass, with a straw = Fav
^ It was Pomegranate Vodka with Sprite Zero
Happy (belated) Valentine’s Day!
We headed downtown and our first stop was St. Elmo’s 1933 Lounge –>
Ben ordered shrimp cocktail & a martini ~
I ordered a vodka with Diet Coke. I do not like shrimp, but I ate the two packages of crackers that came on the side.
We stayed at 1933 Lounge for an hour or so and then headed to our 8:00p dinner reservations at Palomino ~
Ben started with wine, I had another vodka & Diet…
And then they brought our salads & bread ~
Ben ordered a prime rib –>
I ordered something called “Chicken Under a Brick” and still have no clue why it was called that, but it tasted amazing.
It is hard to see in my picture – The chicken came with broccolini, which is a hybrid of broccoli and asparagus, and red potatoes. Yum!
I think I ate about four pieces of the bread, it was so good! Therefore, we brought home over half of my chicken and three of my potatoes.
As I finished my drink, I made sure to drink water. I hardly ever drink anymore, so I was afraid that just my three drinks might make me feel badly today. I drank water with my drinks and when I got home I made sure to take a multi-vitamin…
^ My sister taught me this recently ~ After drinking, take a multi-vitamin to assure you feel great the next day. So far this morning, I do not even feel like I had any drinks last night! Thanks KT!! KT never drinks either, so I am not sure how she learned this, but it works.
A wonderful night with a wonderful Guy!!! ~
Happy (belated) Valentine’s Day!!
Now, so much to accomplish today (including a workout) before we meet my family in Bloomington for dinner ~ Cannot wait to see them!!!
