Having the past five days off form work has been less than relaxing to say the least. I started off with some Thanksgiving Eve drinks in my BF’s hometown. Our friend came back to visit from AZ, so it was nice to see him. I had fun except at the last bar we went to. It was too crowded and I got crammed into a corner right next to the entrance. This annoyed me to the point where I actually left the bar alone, and walked down the street to a less crowded Mexican place. I enjoyed a water and a margarita in that sparsely populated bar. It was so nice and relaxing! Then I psyched myself up to return to the bar I dubbed the “7th circle,” as we all thought it was like hell (or Burma). I had to go back before my boyfriend noticed I had been gone wandering alone, for close to an hour. Ooops!
I had a great Thanksgiving with my family. Thankfully, my nephews didn’t return festering with ticks this year. When I got home, I wasted no time putting up my Christmas decorations. We don’t have many ornaments, but were going next week for some.
Our “freeunion” HS reunion went very well. So well in fact, some have requested another meet up! It was great to catch up with people at a hometown bar without having to buy $75 tickets!
Last night, Andy and I celebrated our nine year (NINE) anniversary. We tried this new Brazilian style steakhouse in Boston called, Fogo de Chao. I think the nine year anniversary should be the steak anniversary. It was delicious! You start at the unlimited salad bar. Then you get double-sided steak cards for when you’re ready for steak. When you flip them to green, waiters each toting different steaks, begin to appear at your table. They will slice you cuts of what you want. It was nuts! I tried about seven different kinds of steak. I finally had to flip my card to red so I could start trying some. My favorite was probably the bacon-wrapped filet mignon. It was a great night, it’s always fun to get dressed up!
