Brrr! It got cold here.
I sent my engagement ring off today to get fixed. I was surprised at how sad I was to see it go. I won't be able to get it back for (possibly) 12 days, so maybe it'll be done when I get back from my West Coast jaunt.
Today is also my birthday. It hasn't been the greatest day so far, but I'm sure it'll get better. I hope so, anyway! I get presents tonight from Trip!
I saw some super cute shoes at Target like this but in brown. I could probably use a cute pair of brown shoes to wear with skirts or pants, but I just wasn't sure if I should buy them. Maybe after I come back.
Trip took me out to dinner last night to Vin, this fancy restaraunt not too far away. We had fried oysters as an appetizer and then I had a delicious steak with asparagus and cheesy mashed potatoes. Trip got a boullabaise that included crayfish, fish, enormous scallops, and shrimp in a lobster bisque. Yum! We both had enough left over for dinner tonight! Plus they do a tiny dessert menu, so we got a really rich chocolate ganache cake and a tempura-fried banana split with triple chocolate ice cream. The banana split was a little disappointing -- the ice cream had a weird aftertaste, but the cake was SOOOO delicious. An excellent birthday dinner! And I get to have some more steak tonight! Yum!
Since I am leaving tomorrow for the West Coast, updates may be sporadic. I am hoping to have some Internet access while I'm gone, but otherwise, I'll send along some updates when I get back. I need to get packing now!
