Another great week/weekend with family and Friends! Thursday night I met great friends and women from the Williamson County Republican party for dinner at Sperry's. Friday night, Josh and I ate dinner with his parents at Sperry's. Saturday night, we had a wedding and the reception was at the Hermitage like ours. It was so much less stressful not being the bride this time! Then on Sunday, we had a Girl's Night Out to the movies, then dinner at yes, Sperry's. We went and saw He's Just Not that Into You and I thought it was HILARIOUS!! We've all been "that girl" before and it was just funny to see it played out on screen. And I am soooo thankful I don't have to date anymore!
I also found the neatest new product at the spa (I go to Serendipity in downtown Franklin). They have these 3 in 1 candles that are perfect for the winter months (Amy, if you read this, Surprise! - you've got one for your birthday!) They are called Suntouched 3-1 candles and are candles, massage oil and body moisturizers all in one. So you light them while you are in the bath, then when you get out, you have the warm liquid at the bottom of the wick that you use as lotion. It smells terrific and feels so good on cold nights! I highly recommend!
And finally, to explain the title of this posting...
As you can probably tell, Josh and I eat out quite a bit. And not sure why, but Sperry's in Cool Springs receives the majority of our business. So Sunday night, I'm there with my girlfriends and the manager comes up to chat and check on us and mentions Valentine's Day and how busy it will be for them that night. I told him I wasn't even sure what Josh and I were going to do for Valentine's but since we were already at Sperry's so often, I doubted we'd have our Valentine's dinner there. To which he replied, "I don't blame you. You should do something different you've never done before...like maybe cook."
Ah yes...cook. Talk about making a new wife feel guilty. But I am taking him up on his challenge! I think it will be fun to stay in and eat at home for once. I have cooked a bit for Josh but mostly just spaghetti, chili and even Hamburger Helper. :) But I want to do something special for Valentine's and so now I need something new to make. So if anyone has any good recipes or ideas, send them my way!
