Oh, Honey

Hello there! Yesterday afternoon Bob and I went out to an early dinner at an Irish pub about half an hour from us that we had never been to before. Irish pubs are a favorite of ours for eating out. We both liked our entrees (although the appetizer wasn't great), and then I got a chocolate lava cake for dessert. I never get dessert when we eat out, but I love lava cake, and hadn't had it in years. It was really good, but I was so full, I couldn't eat it all (came with ice cream, too). We're not going out to eat on Valentine's Day or anything, so this was our night out instead.
After we finished dinner, we headed over to a rockabilly show. We got there a few minutes after six (doors opened at six), and there were only a few people there then, so we grabbed seats at a table close to the dance floor. First a DJ played oldies for about an hour and a half, until the first band came on. The first band played mostly (maybe all?) covers, but they were quite good, and the second band was playing originals. 
There were a lot of people who danced, and they even did a dance lesson while the DJ was playing oldies. Bob and I danced to one song; a slow song. He doesn't like dancing at all, unfortunately. So, he surprised me by even doing that! Overall, we had a good time at the event, and I was glad to find one so close to us! Hopefully we'll be able to find some more soon.
Today I met my parents and grandmother for lunch at Panera, and ran an errand. The rest of the day I'll just be hanging out at the apartment.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my beloved Trashy Diva Geisha Fans Honey dress that I got three years ago. It's my favorite "fancy" dress that I own. I definitely don't get as much use out of it as shirt dresses, for instance, but I do pick this one often when I need something dressier. I love everything about this dress: the colors, the print, the combo of the bright blue background and bright red bust line, and the nice, full skirt and flattering shape. I got so many compliments on my outfit last night.

  1. Sounds like such a fun night! I wish I could go along with you - I'd dance with ya!!!! Cody is similar, however once he gets a few drinks in, he loves grooving on the dance floor! He's special, that one ;)
