I'm still getting used to writing this blog. Never know what format to write in... Ah well.
We got a nice new (okay... new to us) ride. It was time to trade Rachel's VW Bug in for a more "family" car. We got (more appropriately: Rachel got) a VW Jetta Wagon.
Since she loves to name her cars, here is Betty Blue:
I am now personally kicking myself in the butt for not buying a beautiful Passat from this place when I had the chance but ah well.... live and learn.
It's so nice to have a day off from work!
I took yesterday afternoon off to surprise my wonderful wife in the afternoon with flowers and chocolates. I took a nice outfit to work to get spiffy.
Funny how God has a sense of humour. Rachel was trying to get the house nice & tidy and had my Valentine on the bar. She was going to have a "spotlight" on it when I got home at 5.
She was happy to see me but bummed her surprise didn't turn out. I know she wanted to get ready: so I left for an hour before we left and got the car all nice & shiny.
Last thing of the night: the Valentine's Day meal. Off to our favorite restaurant hands down.
We always have fried calamari as an appetizer on Valentine's Day. We both got a chicken dish & it is the tenderest chicken ever.
For dessert? House special called Italian Twinkies. It is basically house Italian Bread deep fried, rolled into a log & filled with a buttercream frosting. Take that & roll it in sugar & cinnamon and sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
Sorry... no pictures. We should've taken the picture of this dessert. Phenomenal.
