Ahhh, dinner out.........

Today was my last Friday at Medtronic it was a pretty good day especially since my lunch was bought for me....gotta love a little Taco Time......Thanks Marcia!!! ....So I have only 2 more wake ups and then my days at Medtronic are over.....Still can not believe how fast it all has gone by....I will have worked there 6 years on Monday......

After work I ran to Target to find a new top to wear out tonight, basically I was just wanting another tank top....and I found two....can't beat 2 tops for under $20!!!......Love it!.....Then it was home to nurse Lila and get ready for dinner.....We had plans tonight to meet Kari and John for dinner and drinks at Spazzo......Ahhh, it was so much fun.....talk about good food.....I think we could have ordered every antipasti on the menu.....oh and my meal, The Pollo....So good.....and I almost forgot we started out with a pitcher of Sangria.....tasted the same as the previous Spazzo in Bellevue and exactly like the recipe I have posted on the Breezy Cook....I love Sangria!....We really enjoyed getting out tonight! We were talking about how is sucks that it takes us moving away to get us out more with our friends......It definitely makes me realize what really good friends I have....and how much I will miss them!

So after dinner Shawn and I were heading home and we decided that we really did want something for dessert and then I thought it would be great to bring some dessert home for Grandma Paula as a thank you....Shawn had the brilliant idea of hitting the Whole Foods on our way home.....As most of you know I love this store......its expensive but so good and they have a huge selection of baked goods, fancy desserts, cookies, cakes, gourmet desserts (such as chocolate mousse served in a chocolate bowl), I could go on but I don't want to make you hungry for something sweet..........So $40 dollars or so later....a bottle of wine, Elmo juice for the girls, gourmet dessert for Grandma Paula, dessert for Shawn and I to split and my $11 dollar Dark Chocolate Dipped Madeleine Marquise Tea Cakes....we were on our way....and yes you heard me right 12 tea cakes for $10.99....I must say I would normally not spend so much on such a dessert but these are the best....they are like mini dense yellow cakes partly dipped in dark chocolate....I could totally eat all of them....but so far I have been good and only had one.....I suppose they would be good with Tea considering they are tea cakes....I should probably try that sometime I do like a good cup of tea in the afternoon....Anyway we were home by 8.45ish......I know early but we met around 5:45ish...it was just nice to get out.....We did get to say good night to the girls.....they were in bed waiting for us to come up and put their blankets, so cute.....Kiara told me "Mommy you look good!" and "Hey your wearing a blue shirt." (She just loves blue).....and MJ added "Mommy you look cute!"....I love getting compliments from the girls....they just sound so grown up....makes my heart melt!!!.....

Well its almost 11pm....So I better wrap it up....just want to thank Grandma Paula again for helping Shawn with the girls today and watching all them tonight so we could enjoy dinner and drinks with good friends.........
