VDay Recap- Part Two

We left off on our Valentines day story, with Ian and I getting back from hiking around 3:45.

We had a 5 oclock reservation.

Ladies, need I say more?

I took the quickest shower/shave, I think I have EVER taken, so that I could get out and let my hair air dry (I can't use a blow dryer on my hair, it would be a total afro!)

Luckily we were out the door by 5, and were only 10-15 minutes late for our reservation. Ian had called ahead and let them know, and it was no problem, because we were their first set of reservation, so it wasn't like the place was packed out yet.

Where did we go, you ask. We went to this cute little gourmet bistro/Italian place called Leonardo's 706. It has a really neat atmosphere and theme inside, and they placed really relaxing music (Jack Johnson anyone?) the entire time.

Since we had just finished our barbque lunch two hours earlier, we weren't exactly famished. So we split a Thai Chicken Pizza, Garden Salad, and a glass of wine.

I'm not really a wine connoisseur, mind you. At all. In fact, I pretty much hate it. That and beer. And that's the only two "alcoholic," drinks I have tried. It just does not taste good to me. I've talked to some other people, and they said the same thing! That they wanted to try it, but once they did, and they realized they did not like it, they see no reason for forcing themselves to drink. I guess that's where I'm at.

Then we headed to our mall, so I could pick out my present. And home to watch Return to Me. Anyone seen it? It was my all time favorite movie in middle school, for whatever reason, and sometime I forget how long ago that was! Ian loved it though, so that is always a plus when it comes to chick flicks. Return to Me has a great cast, and is very funny, on top of being a chick flick, that is. And I am not going to say anymore on the movie, because the plot is semi predictable, and I don't want to give it away to anyone who might want to rent it.

great movie!

I'm not much of one for the alcoholic drinks either. Every now and then I feel like a little champagne (ok, only at weddings and only if I'm not IN the wedding). Definitely don't force yourself to drink something you don't like... I always always prefer a Dr. Pepper or an Iced Tea to anything with alcohol in it.

Sounds like the two of you had a very sweet and enjoyable Valentines!

I just stumbled on your blog! I love your background, it is so cute! :)

I enjoy wine on occasion, but I have to admit that I have yet to find a red wine that I enjoy. I do like white wine or blush wine!

I'm going to have to give that movie a try! =)

Sounds like a sweet Valentine's dinner - despite the rush! I completely agree with your take on wine. I tried it for the first time on our honeymoon (I agreed not to taste alcohol until it was with Matthew and we were married). It took everything in my just to get it down - especially red wine! The cheaper, fruitier ones are somewhat better...but it sure doesn't compare to a sweet lemonade or coke with lime!
