Downtown Dinner Date

Shane (my better half) and I went out to dinner tonight at Tug's downtown.  I love that place, and am a little embarassed to say that I eat there at least twice a week.  It's in my neighborhood, so sometimes we even drive the golf cart there!  It doesn't get any better than that (in Shane's opinion.)  = )  We shared a steak, and I have to say it was one of the most tender steaks I've had in a long time, and not to mention it is so much cheaper than going to the store and buying and cooking our own.  I was a little bored with my pencil skirts and dress shirts all week, so I just had to switch it up a little tonight for a date.  (Is it considered a date after you've been together for over 8 years?)  We had 75 degree weather a few days ago, but now it's in the 40's this week!  Brrrrr.  Since it was just a tad too cold for shorts, I had to at least break out a short skirt.  If you know me, you know that if it's at least 50 degrees outside I will most likely be rocking a pair of shorts.  Recently inspired by Megan (check out her incredible blog!), I've been looking for some nice cozy sweaters, and was so excited when I found this oversized poncho one.  I'm debating on purchasing it in the beautiful pomegranate color too.  On another note, I have got to say that I am so excited that Christmas is almost here!  I really miss my family (even though we only live an hour apart), and especially my nephews!  They are just the sweetest and most fun little boys ever (though I am probably biased.)  You can visit their lovely mom Lindsey's blog here.  My yorkie Spike is an attention hog and wanted to meet everyone out in blogland, so you'll see him below.  Have a great weekend!!!

  1. Awwww! Thanks for the "shout-out"! Lol! We ate at Tug's for dinner when we stayed down there. I had a steak too. I really like that outfit and Spike is too cute!

  2. I'm dying to stay at the hotel now! Is that weird since I live in the neighborhood, ha!

  3. I've never heard of Tugs, but I just checked out the menu! I need to go there soon! Sounds delish!

    1. It's across from Paulette's. They're both really good depending on whether you're in the mood for something nicer or something more casual.

  4. Ohh, the heels on your shoes are so interesting! They remind me of the MMM for H&M :)
