Wedding Albums and Restaurants

Last night I was woken up by the sound of very loud thunder. It scared the bejesus out of me and my little dog. By the time morning came around I only had one thing on my mind … coffee!

I’m a classy girl so I chose to drink my iced coffee out of a ball jar:
The coffee was really good, just regular iced coffee with milk and some vanilla syrup:
To eat I had my favorite Lara Bar, Peanut Butter & Jelly:
I do admit it doesn’t look very appetizing but it really does taste like a PB&J sandwich!
My normal Wednesday lunch was consumed. Pasta with broccoli, carrots and peas with alfredo and pesto sauce:
After lunch I was craving chocolate like nobodies business. A Kit Kat was the only thing that would hit the spot:
After work we had to venture out to the burbs to pick up our wedding album. One thing everyone needs to know about my husband and I is that we are big jackasses! This is proven by the photo we chose for the cover of our album:
We were totally being jackasses when we were getting these pictures taken. But we also had a lot of fun!
We picked up our album and stopped into Cabana Charley’s to look it over as well as have a little dinner.
The place was filled with lots of island themed decorations:
This cocktail was very tasty:
and for a good cause. It was called the TA TA TINI!

Patrick and I shared these nachos. Homemade chips with seasoned meat, cheese, green onions and jalapenos:

The nachos were amazing! Wish I could say the same about my burger. I ordered a Cajun burger and was expecting a blackened spicy burger but what I got was a plain burger sprinkled with some spices:

I would not go back to this place. The service was slow, the place was way to loud with people talking on microphones and the food wasn’t that great. Oh well, at least our photo album turned out great!!!

Memorial Day
I just realized that I didn’t share anything about my memorial day weekend. Patrick and my friends invited us over to their beautiful house to celebrate the holiday weekend.
My cocktail of choice was raspberry vodka and lemonade with a strawberry, can you see the strawberry under all the ice?
There was tons of food but my favorite was the fruit platter. Pineapple, Strawberry, Watermelon and Cantaloupe!

The strawberries were huge and tasted amazing!
My contribution was Pepperoni Pizza Dip. This dish was pretty simple to make and got tons of compliments. I got the recipe from A Better Bag of Groceries blog.
The ingredients were sour cream, cream cheese, garlic powder, oregano, green peppers, red peppers, onion, pizza sauce and cheese!
Once the food was consumed we sat around the fire and made smores!

Patrick and I had a GREAT time with everyone at the party. We are incredibly lucky to have such great friends!


When and where was the last time you had a bad restaurant experience?


  • Anne Marie

    I had a band restaurant experience years ago for my cousin's party. Half the people got served while the other half waited almost 15 minutes for their food to come. It was ridiculous!!

  • Beth @ DiningAndDishing

    Sadly my latest bad experience was at one of my fave restaurants! The wait was 2 1/2 hours and for the first time ever the food was NOT worth the wait. I am hoping it was just a fluke!

    I love your morning coffee jar 😉 That is very ball-er of you!

    I haven't had a bad restaurant experience in a very long time! Hmmm good question….

    I would love to hang out with you and your husband one night, it sounds like you know how to have a good time! I love your cover photo, classic.

    We had loud thunder last night too, and tons of lightening. It was pretty bad, but neat to watch.
