Harry Potter and the Abysmal Dinner at Texas Roadhouse

Good morning! It's 9am on a chilly Sunday morning, and I could not be happier. I will go in to detail in the next paragraphs, but I want to extend a warm welcome to any newcomers to my blog who may have stumbled upon it by way of ICLW. Welcome!

Last night, Buster (I have decided to name my DH, simply because "DH" is just too plain!) and I went to dinner at Texas Roadhouse then went to see the new Harry Potter. Dinner was sub-par, unfortunately. We don't go out to eat too often, so a disappointing meal is quite a letdown. Buster seemed to like his ok, but mine was bleh. Harry Potter, on the other hand, was great! However, because I'm such a nerd, during the whole movie I kept comparing it to the book. When Buster and I got to the car and were discussing our feelings on the movie, I noticed that the only things I said were negative. "That part wasn't in the book," or "They left out this whole story line!"

Overall, I really enjoyed our date night, regardless of the less-than-stellar dinner. Before we left, we took Kelsey over to my in-law's house. Because we were going to be gone from 7pm until 1am, we knew she'd much rather be playing with Buttercup (the in-law's Golden Retriever), and MIL loves dogsitting for us (she has stated several time she actually prefers granddogs to grandchildren. You can read about that here). I went and picked her up at about 8am, and I'm so happy to have her back! Here is a fresh, new photo of Kelsey, taken just for you! :)

Reasons I am happy this morning:
  • My online-friend Nicole had her baby girl last night, after a long 2 day labor. I am beyond happy for her, and can't wait to see photos of the little one!
  • I got my little pup back this morning!
  • I have ZERO plans today. I am so looking forward to being lazy and staying warm and cozy inside with Buster and Kelsey.
  • Coffee
  • Eragon. I'm reading the first book, and with less than 70 pages to go, I'm really enjoying it.
  • Fragments and scenes from Harry Potter that are still floating around my head
  • Oh. Big one here! I haven't been obsessing over this TWW. I don't even know what DPO I am. Can you believe that?! I really can't. With Buster starting a new job, Kelsey and her mild UTI+crystals in her pee, I've just been really distracted. But, per usual, I am not having any symptoms. I'm sure that means this cycle will end the way they always do, but I'm not even stressed or upset about it. Surprisingly.


  1. LOL on Buster! Did he okay that nickname??? :)

  2. Surprisingly, yes! We actually call each other Buster. It's our pet name (no pun intended!) for one another, and for some reason has been since we started dating. :) We are weird, I know!

  3. Hooray for zero plans! (Thanks for the comment on my post yesterday. And, no, my sister has not commented...hmmm.) I'm glad you've avoided stressing over the TWW. It's the worst. Have a great Sunday!

  4. Good for you on losing track of the cycle! That's my plan for next month! I loved HP too, I had to tell DH some of the details that were left out, since he doesn't read it.

  5. Hi there - this is my first time to your blog. I have a 6 year old Golden who, like Kelsey, is the sweetest dog ever. I swear they know when you need a hug. Enjoy your pup!

  6. YAY for a great day! I hope it ends even better :)

  7. Going to see Harry Potter tonight! We have been watching all of the other movies this weekend to "catch up," lol. Its been so long since I read the last book that I'm hoping I won't notice too many of the discrepancies.

  8. I just love your positives :)
    Isn't it just crazy how much we miss our dogs when they are away? I wonder how I'll ever be able to leave a baby at daycare one day considering my feelings might be a bit stronger.
    Eragon is a cute book. I enjoyed the second one as well but had to listen to it on audio because it was very wordy. Hope your enjoy the ending.
    Best of luck this cycle!

  9. I love your blog, Kara :)
    Happy ICLW!

  10. Sounds like a relaxing Sunday! Nicknames are always fun to hear!

  11. Love the picture of your dog!! Soo cute! I too felt similarly regarding deathly hallows part 1.. love it but it was so different from the book in several ways. Too bad dinner was such a bust! Yay for no plans and a relaxing day!

  12. Had a similar experience last week--we never eat out and finally did...but it was a big ole bummer of a meal! I really like the idea of keeping track of things you are happy about--I might have to try that! Hope you have a great ICLW week!
