We were invited to an inpromptu dinner tonight to celebrate a cousin’s birthday. Luckily it was at our FAVORITE Mexican place so I was SO THERE!! The food, as usual, was Great!! Although the Chili Rellenos were way El Scorcho!! Their refried beans are to kill for but I’m kinda bummed that I wasn’t able to bring any leftovers home for breakfast. I’m sad to say that I broke my ‘no-alcohol’ pledge tonight and drank a margarita, but after 42 days I think I had one coming!! I’ll be back on the wagon tomorrow.
But the funny thing was that on the way home, I zipped into ‘Big Lots’ (Mrs Serious’ Favorite place to shop! Although I’m sure that she will be posting a disclaimer here tomorrow!) and we went crazy!! Well, sorta!! She was shocked!! Not that I took her shopping but that I took her THERE!!! Our big purchases were a measuring cup, Poinsettia plant, dog treats and a cheap bottle of wine. Not much, but we had a blast running around and laughing at all of the crap that they had on sale! Big Lots even sells furniture now and it was pretty darned comfy!!
But the bestest part was that it made Mrs Serious happy that I thought of it and we really did have a great time! Especially scaring all of the other customers out of the store!! Picture me weilding a shopping cart around in a giddy mood!! Oh! And we also bought a box of chocolate covered cherries that were ‘on sale’ and they were AWFUL!! We think they forgot the cherry part! My wife disputes this and swears that there was something crunchy and cherry-like inside but she is soo spoiled by Sees!!
All in all it was a fun night with tons of laughs, great food and the woman I love by my side sharing it all! Who could ask for more?
