Oh, YEAH....

a 3 day weekend! Gotta love that! We ran back into Jackson's this morning (during all that rain) and bought some flowers for the front of the house. Still need to get some hostas and some more planters, but this will do for now. Hopefully I can get stuff in tomorrow. Also bought a gorgeous basket to hang outside the kitchen window, but need to get a picture of that yet.

Went here for my birthday dinner:
It's the first time we have been here (it's in Lexington) but it won't be the last. David got the prime rib "special" for only $17 and it was more than worth the money. He also had the twice-backed potato, carrots, salad and homemade bread with iced tea. I had the strip steak for $18, backed potato, carrots, creamy chicken vegetable soup and homemade bread with a strawberry daiquiri. We got the "sampler platter" appetizer with cheese sticks, onion rings, fried mushrooms, potato skins and jalapeno poppers. Our total bill was $53 (so without the appetizer and fancy drink we would have only spent $40, which was a great bargain for such wonderful food). And you don't have to deal with any stop lights or traffic to get there from our house. A definite hit on our list of restaurants. Great day off for me!
