146.2…A Steak of Greatness

Thanks for all the well wishes for our anniversary!! I was so happy all day yesterday!

When I was getting ready for our night out, I enjoyed a glass of wine.

Then we were off to Ruths’ Chris Steakhouse. I swear my mouth was watering the entire drive over there.

We were seated right away and the hostess put rose petals all over our table. I thought the evening called for a glass of champagne!

I ordered the Wedge Salad for my appetizer. I LOVE this salad. It’s so simple but the lettuce is so fresh and I love their ranch dressing (which I substituted for the blue cheese).

My husband and I split the filet mignon. I like my steak medium rare  and he likes it medium so he cut all the ends off for himself. We ordered the creamed spinach and potatoes au gratin.

I think their creamed spinach is the best I’ve ever had. I’ve never tasted a better one. I took a couple bites of the potatoes but I’m not a big potato person (unless they’re French fries) so I let the hubby dominated that one.

I don’t eat a ton of steak so I really enjoyed every bite of this one.  I also had a side of shrimp which I had to send back because they were barely warm. Ick. They took the shrimp off the bill and hooked me up with a glass of wine. Thanks! That’s what I call awesome customer service!

We choose the cheesecake for our dessert and they brought it with a candle and on a plate that said “Happy Anniversary”.

Their cheesecake is spot on. I planned on only having a couple bites but I couldn’t help myself. :)

I was pretty darn full when I got home so I just rolled myself into bed. What a great night!!

Breakfast this morning was a waffle (that I toasted too long) with peanut butter and some watermelon. I’m finally making a dent in my watermelon collection!

After taking the kids to the bus for camp, I went to Zumba. The newer instructor teaches it on Wednesday and I’m not super excited about her class. We don’t move around enough for my liking so I don’t burn as many calories (according to my heart rate monitor) as I do with the other instructor. Good thing I’ll be at her class tomorrow!

Lunch was leftover Chicken Cashew Stir Fry with brown rice:

Then I started to clean out my closet. Another time consuming job. Like my bathroom, there’s a whole lot of stuff in there! I made a good dent in there today. I was able to free up a couple of shelves where I put my jeans (they were hanging before).

I picked up the kids and came home for a snack.

Tortilla with deli chicken slices and mustard. I’m going out to sushi (yes!!) with the girls tonight and I didn’t want to go starving. I can eat sushi like nobody’s business and do not need to go there famished. I’m sure I’ll do a lot of damage there as it is!

Do you fold your jeans or hang them?

Do you eat a snack before going out to dinner?


  1. Sounds like you had a great anniversary and a good day! Enjoy sushi! Sounds delicious! I fold my jeans, and sometimes I have a snack before going out to dinner! :D


  2. Glad you had a great anniversary dinner. And I hope you had fun with the sushi. I could go for some sushi. :)

    I don't usually eat before going out because I think I still tend to eat the same amount so then its just extra. LOL And I fold my jeans. I would hang them...but don't have the space!

  3. I fold my jeans, on a shelf in my closet. Like Tina said I don't have the room.

  4. yum, can't go wrong with steak and shrimp!! i keep my jeans folded - we have tiny closets!

  5. awww happy anniversary! Looks like you guys had a great one - love that you shared the fillet!
