A week or so ago someone sent us a $50 gift card to the Outback Steakhouse.
That is a lot.of.money.
At least it is to us.
We used it this week for our monthly date night, and lemme just say the following things:
- Outback's battered mushrooms are killer.
- So is Alice Springs Chicken.
- I am so proud of Nate for ordering water.
- Eating out is waaaaay more fun when someone else is paying.
- If I gain fifty pounds this month, I plan to blame Outback.
Also, a friend of ours told me she had a dresser which she wanted to give to our girls. The kids didn't have a dresser for their clothes, just stacking organizing bins. Eventually I wanted to get them a cute little dresser, but it certainly wasn't a priority. I have to confess my first thought was, "O boy, I wonder if she found it on someone's curb or something. It's probably dinged up or peeling." You never know!
Silly me. I should've known better.
I don't know how she scored the free dresser, but I do know that she repainted it, and she also added some cute embellishments. It's perfect! She says there's a little door for the cubbyhole, which she offered to cover with some cute fabric if I want. I declined at first, but I think it'd be better with the door. What say you?
