Happy New Year!!


Clint and I finished out 2010 by going on a date. The first in..... many, many months. This was the first New Year's Eve that we left the house for in years. The kids went to a friend's house to play, and we had an early dinner and saw a movie.

We had dinner at El Paso. Yum! We've been there twice and it's my new favorite Mexican restaurant. The best Mexican food ever. Although both times we have had the same server and he is horrible! The first time we thought maybe it was just a fluke, but last night was even worse. Very inattentive. From when I started timing it, it took thirty minutes for him to take care of our bill. We sat and sat and sat. He brought the bill. We sat and sat and sat. He was no where to be found. We were in the middle of digging for exact change so we could just leave it on the table and walk out when he showed up. So, we gave him $100 bill since we needed change to pay my friend for babysitting. When he brought our change, it was $20 short! Sad to say, but I do have to wonder if it was intentional or not. Clint tracked down the manager, which took even more time, and we got the correct change. The food is awesome and we will go back, but we will make sure we have a different server next time!!!

We saw "Tron" in 3D at the theater to the tune of $26 for two tickets. (When did that happen?! I am spoiled for $5 10am movies.) This was the first 3D movie I have seen and while it's neat, I don't think it was worth the extra $6. (And they want their glasses back?!) It was a pretty good movie over all, even though I'm not familiar with the original "Tron" movie or the game.

We picked up the kids, came home, watched fireworks, and then put the kids to bed. Clint and I rang in the New Year sitting on the couch on our computers!

Happy New Year, Y'all!
