365 Restaurants, 2 Kids, 1 Giant Fiasco
The experience Ogre wanted to try Carolina’s, the restaurant that has taken the place of Mario’s Chiquita on 75 over by Chuy’s. Sounded like a great plan to me. We all loaded up and headed over. The kids were excited about it as we drove up to the restaurant until they realized we were NOT [...]
The experience Ogre was finishing up lawn work (we have an acre) and as he was finishing up, I found out that I had an admission to see at the hospital. We decided it would be the best plan to eat in Rowlett so I could head over to the hospital right after dinner and [...]
The experience Today when Ogre asked me about dinner, I remembered that on Tuesday it’s Kids Eat Free. It was Tuesday, so we set out to find the nearest Applebee’s. After getting a little lost, we finally happened upon it. We were seated right away and noticed a lot of tables with kids.
The experience I was Mina’s chauffeur again this evening driving a ways to her hula class. Ogre and I decided we’d meet after her class and thought that our plan a couple weeks ago to meet halfway would work again, so we decided on the El Chico right by the Bone Daddy’s we went to [...]
The experience My partner texted me about seeing the fireworks in Rowlett and after I discussed with Ogre, we decided it could work. I had a birthday party to take the kids to in the afternoon, but we decided we go after and meet my partner and her sweet baby girl for dinner after. Turned [...]
The experience Mina started hula lessons today, so it was just me and her. We ended up having to stop off at the hospital for an admission after her dance lesson, so I decided we’d eat in Rowlett so it wouldn’t be too late when we were eating dinner. Just a few weeks ago, I [...]
The experience You may have noticed on my two previous posts, that I’ve been suggesting Steak ‘n Shake for days now. I’ve been craving a Root Beer Float (pregnancy perk!) and every time I do, Ogre responds, “yeah, well….” and then we go somewhere else. I recommended it again today and lo and behold, we [...]
The experience Today I had a day off with no commitments, appointments or anything else that I had to do, so I thought we should go out to breakfast. Unfortunately, pickings are getting VERY slim for breakfast choices that we haven’t eaten at already this year! The only restaurant that I could think of that [...]
The experience Ogre and I decided to go out to lunch with Benji today. My parents were unavailable to babysit him today and I returned from rounding in time to grab lunch with the boys. I can’t go too far, and the pickings are getting slim in the Plano area, but we recalled that we [...]
The experience Today, the plan was for Ogre and I to drive separately to dinner as Grandpoo and Oma would be joining us to celebrate Grandpoo’s birthday and then everyone except Benji and me were going to see the new Star Trek movie at the IMAX theater in Mesquite. Well, Benji was out as he [...]
