It was lovely.
We started out by having lunch at the Olive Garden.
Scarlet was snuggled up by the fireplace while Shannon and I
We started our lunch with some of Olive Garden's famous salad.
It was So wonderful.
We ate all of it.
For the main course I chose Linguine with Marinara Sauce.....
And Shannon chose a dish (which I, of course, cannot remember the name of) that was really delish. It was chicken and steak kabobs, with fried potatoes, and vegetables covered in a basil type paste.
Oh. My. Word.
It was SOOOOOOOOO delish, that I was forced to eat most of Shannon's order.
I couldn't help myself.
Of course, no date with me is complete until I have spilled something, or until I have gotten food on my clothes.
This date was no exception.
There was marinara sauce all over my top.
And as if wearing my marinara sauce wasn't embarrassing enough, the waitress walked up right as I was taking the picture of the sauce on my shirt.
She looked at me as if I were nuts, and then she asked me, "Did you just take a picture of your shirt?"
To which I replied, "Well, of course. Doesn't everybody?"
(She was obviously not a blogger. I'm just saying.)
Luckily for me, Shannon still loves me even though I tend to be quite clumsy and messy.

Shannon chose the new Brad Pitt movie called The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
It was a lovely movie. We heard many people after the movie saying that they thought it was "weird," but we really loved it. It was full of so much wisdom.
Here is the movie trailer.
The character of Benjamin's mother really touched me so much personally. She was so wise. I loved her outlook and attitude towards life. She was just very accepting of all the events in her life. Good or bad. She always told Benjamin, "You never know what's coming for you."
There was one scene in particular that really moved me. Benjamin was very upset about his "condition," and he was crying as he asked her, "What's wrong with me, Momma?" To which she simply replied, "God hasn't told us that yet." She didn't worry about what was wrong with Benjamin, she just trusted that with God, he would be all right.
I told Shannon that I want that to be my attitude. When difficulties come my way, I fuss, fret, complain, cry, get over myself, then I finally accept God's Will. I want to skip all of those steps and just simply trust God. I am a work in progress. Slow, slow progress...but progress all the same, amen?;)
Anyway, we loved the movie. I realize not every one will love it, but I highly recommend that you see the movie and decide for yourself.
Now, as you know, no trip to the movies would be complete without me visiting the ladies room and finding something interesting.
Here is what I found during my time in the loo.......
Me too, sister! Me too! LOL!:)
