You want to know what’s really awkward? Walking in to an appliance store, having about 20 people staring at you, and finding out that they’re having some sort of “designers meeting.”
But you want to know what makes it equally as fun? Having one of the reps at the store understand the awkwardness and take you back to where they’re serving food and drinks for the party and offer you each a free beverage.
Shopping for washers and dryers with a free drink in hand? Don’t mind if we doooo!
The two of us went out last night to look at washers and dryers because we may end up getting new ones some time soon. We went more to check out pricing rather than purchase just yet, but it turned out to definitely be worth the trip.
That wasn’t our main reason for getting out last night though…we had some weeknight dinner reservations!
Those of you who have been long time readers may remember that we got married at The Century House and, most years since, we’ve gone back for an anniversary dinner there. Hey, we were only celebrating about two and a half months late…
And about a month ago, there was a Living Social deal for a three course, Pre-Fixe menu, and it was too good of a deal to pass up…except we almost missed out on it and wound up waiting until the day before it expired, hence the random Wednesday date night.
We started out with bread and dipping oil, which we devoured in no time because we were starving.
For our appetizer, we ordered the calamari since we already knew it was delicious.
For me entrée, I ordered the same thing I get every time – the filet mignon – but this time, it was served with a roasted garlic butter that was out of this world.
I loved the fact that our deal also included a dessert, because we quickly remembered their delicious Grande Finale offering. It looked a little different from the last time we ordered it, but it was still just as tasty.
The two of us, undoubtedly, left there stuffed, but we both had such a great night and agreed that it was awesome to have a little time alone. We’ve been so busy with this or that, and just have a lot of things happening, so it was nice to spend some time just the two of us for a few hours.
So hey, I guess for “wingin’ it” this week with meals, this one didn’t turn out half bad?
Do any of you guys have any anniversary “traditions?”
