Friday, Geof and I went to Spice (one of our favorite restaurants) and had dinner. They serve Indian and Thai food, but we always go for Indian when we dine there. We hadn’t been there in awhile and I forgot what I was missing. It was so good. Geof had Matar Paneer with Chicken and I had Chicken Tikka Masala with Paneer. We also split some Garlic Naan. Everything was delicious.
After dinner, we headed over to the movies to catch the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street. I went in with low expectations and because of that, I wasn’t completely disappointed. I’m a huge fan of the original and it used to terrify me as a kid. The remake might do the same for the younger audience and it made me jump a few times, but it didn’t even come close to being as good as the original. Overall, we had a really nice date night though.

Saturday, Geof and I took the dogs, picked up Subway and headed over to my mom’s house for lunch. The dogs loved running around the yard and playing with her dog, Happy. The weather was gorgeous and we made it a nice afternoon.

Saturday night, our friend Jess and her husband Jay came over and we headed to Dave & Buster’s for dinner and games. The night started out fine and then got worse with bad service and cold food during dinner. We were sitting there for over 2 hours. The four of us were in such a foul mood once dinner was done, that we didn’t feel like playing games, so we just headed home. What a disappointment.

Sunday was the day that we were looking forward to all weekend because our friends Jessica and Amanda from the cruise were in town for two different concerts and they brought their friend John. We were able to meet up with them before their flight back to Minnesota later that evening. They came to our house for a bit and then we headed to Barnaby’s for lunch and drinks. It was a blast and I love these guys. I don’t think we stopped laughing the entire afternoon and we were really sad to see them go. It was great to have them here and I really hope to make it out there to see them next time. Amy and Chad are also on that list too. It is awesome the friendships and bonds that can be formed just by being away on vacation together.
