We kept valentine's day pretty low key around here. The kids had their parties at school. Brooke was so excited for her first at school party with valentines. They had so much candy and they ate it all pretty much that afternoon. I figured it was out of the way that way and I won't have to keep telling them no for the rest of the week. They like being spoiled every once in a while. We took the kids out for a nice yummy Taco Bell dinner. They really enjoyed that too.
Mike and I went out to dinner and dancing for our big date for v-day. We had some of my favorite people go with us...Meg and Harvey Antczak, and my best friend Rachel. The Antczak's and Mike and I went to Yumbo's restaurant. The food was pretty good, the environment was interesting. You walk in and look at the big menu's on the wall, and then order and pay at the counter. After a little bit they bring your food out to you on a styrofoam plate and plastic forks. The food was really good. I had the beef brisket and pulled pork platter with awesome sweet potato mash and Mike had a "filly" sandwich. The atmosphere reminded me of an outdoor festival kind of place. It was great food and not very expensive...I'd go back. From there Mike and I headed out to Hilton to pick up Rachel to go dancing with us. The Antczak's went ahead of us downtown to High Fidelity to save us a spot so we could listen to my favorite band ever (besides NKOTB) Uncle Plum. I had not been to High Fidelity since they changed owners. It was nice in there, for a bar/night club. There were 4 or so leather couches, and Meg and Harvey were sitting on one of them. Uncle Plum was supposed to hop on stage at 10:30pm, but they ended up starting almost and hour late, but it was worth the wait. Rachel and I danced non-stop until 2am when they closed down. Mike shook it a little bit too. Meg and Harvey danced a little bit with us, but I think they were mostly laughing at Rachel and I for being goofy! All in all, I think everyone had a great time! I can't wait for the weather to warm up so Uncle Plum will have more show dates. I had the best workout in a while dancing all night!
