We spent our entire month’s eating out budget in one fell swoop this week! We went out for restaurant week to a place that’s been on our minds but out of our price range since we moved here (The Melting Pot). Our meal took 2.5 hours and we had wonderful service. I even ate a bit of dessert! It was fun to have such an interactive meal.
We had another interesting end of the week here because Durham got a bit of snow and ice! Kyle and I took off from work a bit early on Friday because we didn’t want to slip on our long walk to our parking lot and found our car almost completely iced up. It took us about 20 minutes to get inside and chip away at it with our ice scraper. There was seriously an ice scraping party going on in our parking lot – everyone was helping each other out and such. We hardly ever get snow here so it was nice to break up the routine.
On Saturday we had our basketball group over to watch our team play – and thankfully it went much better than the game on Wednesday! It was our first gathering at our house of the season, because this game was broadcast on CBS instead of on ESPN. We hope to do this a few more times before the end of the regular season.
