Today has been a great day. I've been looking forward to this day for months now. Particularly the past week because we have been eating well now that Steve is home. So, today was splurge on bad food day.
Last night, Steve told me what the plan was. We would be going out to lunch any where I wanted to go. I chose to go to Olive Garden where we both had soup, salad, and breadsticks (and a shirley temple). The next part of the plan was to go play some minature golf, so we headed over to the Grand Sierra. When we got there, I decided to hit golf balls into the aqua range they have there... that was a lot of fun.
Then we drove up to Virginia City. We've been up there together before, but there were a few things we had not done. We had a pretty good time touring the mine and going in and out of a few of the stores. I love Virginia City because I can get chocolate covered strawberries there (I got 2). We also enjoyed some other snacks; ice cream, chocolate walnut fudge, salt water taffy, rock candy & razzles.
We hung out in VA for a few hours before heading back down to the valley to get ready for dinner. Steve made reservations at Bricks, a place I've been wanting to try since we moved here 3 years ago. It was great! Steve ordered one of the specials; Elk. It's yummy.
Today has been a good celebration day!
