After we were through shopping, we were going to eat lunch at Outback Steakhouse, since a friend had given us a gift card. Little did we know that Outback doesn't open till 4pm ~ we found that out when we pulled into the empty parking lot and read the HOURS sign on the door!!! How embarrassing! I felt so dumb.... it seems we've spent too many years going to McDonald's, Hardee's, Taco Bell, etc. with kids in tow. We drove around to all the other nice restaurants, but all the parking lots were full, and I mean FULL! We finally settled on Shoney's, only because the parking lot was 1/2 full. We went in, thinking we'd order the buffet and pick and choose all we wanted for lunch, only to be told "today is a holiday so we have breakfast on our buffet all day long" ~ my husband and I looked at each other and laughed. I asked our server if we could still order a steak dinner off the menu... "oh sure!" she said "but it will take a little longer than usual ~ my boss is cooking today and he doesn't usually cook" ~ we laughed even more then! Can you believe the luck we were having??? We ordered the ribeye dinner and it was good, but I told my husband that they were not as good as the steaks he grills at home. He has spoiled me with his grilling. We did order dessert, even though I was stuffed and shouldn't have. I got strawberry pie and he got apple crisp a la mode so we could share our desserts with each other. Yum!
I'll share a few Signs of Spring photos with you. I am still holding out hope for a big snow, but can't ignore the little crocuses and snowdrops that have popped in the last few days. Do you see the little honeybees in the crocuses and snowdrops?
