Well, I don't even know what to title this post since I have so many things to say. I almost called it "Socializing" because that is what we have been doing tons of this week!
I told you about John's birthday dinner on Monday night. Then Wednesday, I went out with my fun second grade team for appetizers after school. It was my assistant's birthday and we went to Firebirds which is such a good restaurant. I love my team and we have so much fun together! I am thankful I get to work with people I like! :) Meanwhile, Steve hosted a Men's Bible Study at our house that night.
Thursday night was Steve's parents' 53rd anniversary! That is alot of happy years together!
To celebrate we went to The Melting Pot for dinner.
This is the card they had on our table when we got there, which I thought was really sweet.
This week in Charlotte we are having something called "The Queen's Feast" (named after Queen Charlotte...that's who our city is named after). Anyway...you can get an appetizer, entree, and dessert for $30. Restaurants all over Charlotte are doing this and I think it's a pretty good deal.
Have you ever been to The Melting Pot?? Oh...my...word. It's a fondue restaurant and we ate ourselves silly.
This is Steve's sister, Debbie and her husband Bob.
First we started off with three different kinds of cheeses to dip bread, veggies, and apples in. Then we had our entree...steak, fish, chicken, ravioli, vegetables, etc. Plus we had about 6-7 different kinds of sauces to dip them in. And for dessert, we got three different kinds of chocolate to dip fruit, pound cake, cheesecake, and marshmallows in.
I practically waddled out of there! haha
We actually had a birthday party to go to today for my niece Bailey's 3rd birthday. She was born on Steve's parents' 50th anniversary which is kind of cool! And tonight we were supposed to be going out with some friends for dinner. But we got snow and ice last night, so it turns out we are just staying home and relaxing this weekend. That is FINE with me! I love going out, but I am tired after staying out late and staying so busy and trying to work, too. I must be getting old!
Last night I made some Spicy Chicken Vegetable Soup and we just rented a movie. I think I fell asleep about 10 minutes after it started. I'm not even kidding! When I woke up, 20/20 was on. They were doing a special about John Edwards. Goodness...I am just totally shocked and disappointed in him. His behavior is disgusting to me.
We were hoping we would get lots of pretty snow overnight, but when we woke up we only had about and inch and a half. It is pretty, though.
And the kids up the street are so cute. They are all out on their sleds and their parents have the fire pit out and they are all hanging out together.
Steve keeps looking out the window wishing he had a kid to sled with! He's a big kid himself. :) All my kids got alot more snow where they are. Laura got about a foot up in Boone and Mark and Lindy both got about 4 inches!
I'm not sure what the roads are like today, but my plan is to just stay home and relax all day. I went to the store and got plenty of food so we should be fine for a while! Did you get any snow where you live this weekend??
