Jer got home and he took me out for a date night (he actually told me on Tuesday to not make any plans for Friday night so he could take me out on a date since he knows I'm notorious for making plans for us). He had made reservations at a fancy restaurant here in Roanoke called The Classic Cafe (doesn't sound like it would be a fancy restaurant, it sounds more like a home-cooking restaurant). It was delish but too pricey for my budget. It was definitely a "been there done that" kinda experience.
Before we head out pictures.
Yes....we are those people.....but luckily we were in a room by ourselves. And yes....these are yucky iPhone pictures. Blah.
They have AWE-some ice cream. It's so creamy and tasteful. My favorite is mint chocolate chip on top and birthday cake (with real chunks of cake in it) on top. Fan-freaking-tastic!
Once we got our sugar induced a coma we headed here:
Since my mom stayed the night and was going to spend the day at our house, we decided that would be a perfect time for Jer and I to go Christmas shopping alone so we could get more done without a baby in tow. So mom stayed home with the B-Man. We were gone for a good 5 hours and it was so nice to be able to hop in and out of the car without having to put a baby in and out of his car seat and stroller. I am officially done with Christmas shopping except for stocking stuffers which are easy peasy. By the time we got home, mom left to a family party and Jer and I went to Schlotzsky's for dinner then to the grocery store.
We got up watched church on the laptop through our church's live webcast. Once it was over we headed out to meet my cousins, aunt, mom and grandma at a little Mexican restaurant called Dos Molina's in Fort Worth. Best mexican breakfast, ev-ah!!! Seriously, I have the most awesome cousins. Each of them are so stinkin' sweet and fun!
For our first year, we went with the Mitchell's! oh M Gee (yes I just spelt it that way) they are THE sweetest people! We love them so much. Mer is a sorority sister and I'm so lucky to have her as a sista-fo-life. :) Fingers crossed that they agree to go with us every year as "our little tradition."
We were heading through the maze of lights/trees and "snow" (really soap suds) to get on the train.
The Mitchell's. Aren't they just adorable. Their son, Cash, is only 2 months younger than B-man. We hope to have them grow up together since they are already Best Buds. They told us they were. We totally didn't make them become best buds.....it was totally their choice. Yep.
P.S. If you are a Facebook friend, there will be tons more pictures on my page. :)
