9 months

Yesterday, Quinn and I went out to celebrate our 9 month dateiversary. It'll probably be our last big dateiversary celebration as this summer will be busy, we'll be broke and our wedding is near.

We wanted to go to this little restaurant I know called Star Grill. It's quaint, interesting inside (stars everywhere), and really good food. BTW, it's plus 30 in Winnipeg, plus humidity. We get in there, no A/C, small, stuffy, it's loud, it just wasn't working for us. :( I was sad, because I really like their food, Quinn said let's try Osbourne or Corydon. We went down to Corydon and went to another place I really liked, Quinn hadn't been to before. Guess what? We ended up on the patio on Corydon, sipping cool drinks with good food! We'll go back to Star Grill in the winter, when we need it to be warm inside!

That was part 1, then we took a little stroll on Corydon, then off to mini golf. Guess who joined us mini-golfing??? 5 billion of our close friends :)

Yes, us and all our friends went mini-golfing, these friends decided to sit on us, have us for dinner and made us score badly on our golf game. I can't remember all their names, but I think it started with M and ended with O. We left them quickly, only to be joined by their co-horts at the ice cream stand. When we left mini-golf, they put in a quick call to their stand-bys, down on Jubilee, by the river. Needless to say, we had to escape, made off with our ice cream to the security of the car. We weren't the only ones - so many were confined to their vehicles with ice cream in 'enjoying the view' for so many.

I guess this is their 'season'...we need the 'cone' (I'm so HAPPY, this is the BEST day of my liiiifffeee)(so funny!)...if any of you have watched Get Smart, you'll know what I'm talking for silence, for bug protection...I guess bug spray works too.

All in all, we had a great night out, just great, we're thankful. We have a good reason to celebrate early, we have a wedding to attend on the 27th. We're excited for Friday, for Jeff & Andrea, to be able to celebrate with them on their special day.

3 months and 3 days...

I was wondering when you said you ended up on the patio outside just where the mosquitoes were! They are atrocious! I have spent the last month sitting in my yard watching the kids, and the last 4 days or so we've been hiding indoors. I am so not impressed!

Congrats on your celebration!

Oh yeah, and at first when you said that all your close friends were there I was thinking "excuse me?"
Then I caught on! lol.
