I don't have a ton of photos but Darryl and I have had a lot of fun! On Friday, once parents left with the boys and the parents of the extra kids pick them up, Darryl and I headed for town. We had reservations at PF Changs - a resturant we had never eaten at but had heard so much about that we finally decided to try. First I'll say, it was good food . . kind of unique but good. We got egg rolls which were not the best I've had but weren't awful either. I also ordered some Crab Rangoons which were actually the best part of my entire meal. Dinner was good but not nearly as good as the hype. How's that for a middle of the road review? After dinner we went to see a movie - We saw Book Thief which was a really, really good movie. Yes, we also enjoyed popcorn and lemonade :-)
Saturday morning we slept in (such a rarity!) and hung at home. I had to run to the grocery store and then we got ready for this . . ..
Sunday was a totally 100% "veg" day. Sleeping in; hanging out in PJ's all day; Watching football without interruption. We did receive news part way through the day that a Pastor friend of ours had passed away from a massive stroke suffered just that morning. He was 46 and leaves behind his wife and 6 kids. Not what we were expecting at all. It is still a little surreal.
Monday morning I took Darryl to work so I could have the truck. After coming back home (he goes to work at 3:30 AM) I will admit that I got a Sausage Biscuit from McDonald's on the way in because my stomach was growling and I was so glad I did. Why? Because when I got home, I crawled into bed, snuggled under the covers and went to sleep without being hungry. It was such a relaxing sleep . . .something I seldom get it seems! I got up and got ready to head out for a day on my own! My first stop was lunch at Grand Traverse Pie Company - my all time favorite lunch place. From there I started shopping :-)
For the record, my Christmas decor is still outside. Maybe it will come down today ;-)
