Take My Breath Away

I had a really wonderful weekend(except for the Skins, ahem). I went to 1789 on Friday for dinner and it was fabulous. Malibu Ken arrived at my door looking GOOD in a suit and brought me roses! I was sooo surprised. I think it's always fun to get dressed up and do a nice dinner every once in awhile. I put on my little black dress and we were out the door.

We arrived 20 min early but the hostesses were very nice and prepared a table for us right away. We sat in the John Carroll room right in front of the fireplace. Tres romantic! It took a little while for our server to present the menu and wine list which left us wondering if we would ever get a waiter. For my first course I had the scallop margarita - scallops in a lime sauce with avocado and tequila ice ball. Very very full of interesting flavors. MK had the oyster soup and it contained very large, done to perfection oysters. For the second course I had the rack of lamb with feta potatoes and garlic spinach. I've since heard that this dish is a DC classic, and while eating it I could taste why. The lamb was tender and the potatoes were out of this world. He had the grilled monkfish served over scallops and garlic spinach. I'd never had monkfish before and it was very good and meatier than I expected. Our third course was dessert and I got the lemon marscapone cheesecake and he got the chocolate cake. Both were very rich and left us VERY full. Overall, the service was great (our glasses were never empty) and the food was delicious. It was the perfect night out and I'm so glad I finally got a chance to go there.

After dinner we walked along the Gtown waterfront and took a few moments to enjoy the nice view. MK whispered something very sweet in my ear, and as we were holding each other I realized it was the most romantic moment I've ever had. He is so good to me and everyday I learn something new or discover a deeper connection; and realizing that I deserve all of this has also been a surprise. He is caring, strong, honest, and has great teeth! Haha. But seriously a friend made a comment regarding us that is so true: we are always laughing. We are on the same wavelength and usually find ourselves happy, full, and laughing. And that's a magnificent place to be.

Neat. The pink rangers real name was Amy Jo Johnson, she's been topless in a few flicks. If you go to and look up her name, you can find them :) So, I've seen the pink rangers hoo-hoo's.

I am so glad for you. You do deserve to be happy, and to be in that place is so nice.

Just go with the flow girl and take it as it comes. Enjoy the moments (like these) and everything will fall into place!

sharky - thanks for the advice :)

I-66 and Smash - the first comment goes back to a conversation on nik's blog about power rangers and horrible japenese TV-style special effects. and really, who didn't enjoy the pink power ranger?
