A night out with my cowboy
Last night we got all spiffy, put on our Sunday best to attend a Christmas party. A couple that wears cowboy boots together….uh well, I guess has a great time. Or however that goes.
I kind of love this cowboy. <3
It was buffet style so we grabbed a plate and loaded up. Those green beans & potatoes were by far my favorite dish of the evening. The green beans were crisp & crunchy and had an ever so slight vinegar & crushed red pepper bite. Perfection!
Dessert was a full on ice cream bar complete with hot fudge, caramel, crushed Oreo’s and a bunch of other toppings.
It was Mike’s first time at Spanish Bay so we wandered around admiring the beauty of the property.
That boy’s eyes lit up when he saw the Rolex clock wall with times from all over the world. It’s quite a sight.
We were greeted with Christmas carolers in the lobby, then enjoyed sitting by the gigantic fireplace, staring at the real Christmas tree while soaking in the season. Is this real life??
Oh we can’t forget the giant gingerbread village!!
Excuse me while I go all Templeton style here. I’m a sucker for the tiny details so this did not disappoint. There was even a pool on the top of one of these buildings. So cool!
After the party, we drove down Candy Cane Lane Cali style-top down. It was 44, not windy and clear plus we had the heater on our feet. Perfection!
Here are a few of my favorite’s:
I had a fantastic evening with my man. We really need to get dressed up and go out more often.
How often do you get dressed up for a date night? What do you do?
Clearly not often enough. That needs to change.
Did you attend a Christmas party? Tell me all about it!
Do you build gingerbread houses?
No, but I would LOVE to. It’s one of those things you build with others and Bam doesn’t have thumbs.
