Today we went out in the snow and had our Valentine's Day lunch at Logan's Steakhouse. We have only been there one other time and that was the day they opened. That outing was terrible; which we should have known not to go somewhere on opening day.
Anyway, we decided to try it again. Because of all the snow the restaurant was not very busy at lunch. Our waitress was very attentive.

Of course we did have to drink an adult beverage; actually none of us our "drinkers" but we did share a prickly pear cactus margarita. And since this was our Valentine's Day lunch, the drink had to be pink.
Of course these type of places give you way too much food. I told our waitress just to box up my potato because I figured with 6 oz of filet and grilled veggie kabob, I would save the potato for my dinner.
We had a great time. Alex talked about how much he is enjoying his new job... which is always a plus. I have a great family; and I love these two guys so very much. :)
We are now getting another four inches of snow. I truly believe it will still be snowing in April. This Winter has brought so much snow. Although it can be quite beautiful, with such frigid temperatures, you can't really go out and enjoy it.
This is in my backyard. The one inch we were suppose to get quickly turned into two inches... and now they said it will be snowing for the next five hours.
So I love Tyler Oakley and subscribe to his youtube feed. I've been following him for at least a year. His laugh is infectious and he always makes me smile. You need to go check out his videos found at Tyler Oakley on YouTube.
his birthday is coming up on March 22nd so for his birthday he would like to raise $150,000 for The Trevor Project. Not familiar with The Trevor Project? Well it was founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award-winning short film "Trevor", The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people ages 13-24.
Last year he raised $29,000 and this year he's raising the stakes and aiming for $150,000 (I just check the donation site and he has raised $101,000). It's important for him to help The Trevor Project every year for his birthday in hope that we can help others live to celebrate more of their birthdays.
So I clicked the link and made a donation... and now I'm asking you to check out his video below and if you are compelled to give, please do so.
And he's even giving away prizes with the top prize of a trip to Los Angeles (with a guest) to meet up with him and have dinner. And since I'm free after April 30th... I want to hook up, chew on a bloody steak and laugh until I puke. Anyone want to join me? :)
February - the smallest month of the year. In this part of the world it can also mean colder weather and more snow as it begins to battle it out with an approaching Spring. Forecasts (although they are still tracking the latest storm) state we could receive 18 to 30 inches of snow on Tuesday. Since my inseam is only about 26 inches ---I'm not sure I'll be able to walk in this wintery mix without having a cold crotch, a very cold one.
But at least we only need to worry about the next 28 days. March never usually brings much snow. However, this hasn't been an "normal" Winter.
Still excited and nervous about my department at work closing shop in Dayton and what the future will hold for me this year. The thought of 52 weeks of severance pay is quite appealing and what a gift that would be. Also the time to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. So I'm leaning to more excitement as April 30th begins to creep towards me.
I hope February is filled with lots of love, warmer weather and precious memories. And I would welcome a winning Power Ball ticket :).
I love Sundays. The mornings are so quiet. Normally I stop at Target to pick up the sales flyer for Gary (yes he's addicted to Target). Then sometimes I take myself to lunch and I usually spend several hours at the bookstore, sipping Hot Cinnamon Spice tea and looking at magazines and books.
Today I discovered this book:
I enjoyed Robin on The Howard Stern show. I didn't realize she had been sick and I didn't know anything about this book. So I spent at least an hour skimming each chapter. I think the subtitle "How Real Foods Saved My Life" pretty much summed up what I gleaned. Actually I'm going to see if this book is available on Kindle... it was that good.
And then I ran my baby V through the carwash. Problem encountered when the first wash bay took my money and the door never went up. I then backed her up and went to the 3rd bay and had to pay again. But at least she's mostly salt-free and I've left a voicemail at the carwash place requesting my money to be refunded. As I was pulling into the 3rd bay; another vehicle paid at the first bay and again the doors did not opened. I didn't have a piece of paper or a post-it to write "out-of-order" on the money thingy.
And my street, I swear a snow plow hasn't been down the street for days. This is what it looks like today.
Now I'm preparing an Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin for supper. A new recipe I found online. Hopefully it will be tasty. I'm making a peach preserve reduction as a sauce to top the tenderloin with when it's finished roasting.
