"America. In the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timeless words. With hope and virtue, let us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come. Let it be said by our children's children that when we were tested, we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back, nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God's grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations."
Rosemary's. January 14, 2009. Nancy, Eric and Kelli at Ladies Night.
Eric and I have spent many a night at Rosemary's. It is, after all, where we went on our FIRST DATE together. Awww. But lastnight was different. Ladies Night is a pretty sweet deal: Ladies get 1/2 off food, and it's happy hour all night in the bar/lounge. Although, the three of us are not anywhere close to consuming the amount of alcohol we were accustomed to when we all first started Roy's, the Bilbo's days. But we were surrounded by good company, good food, and good drinks. This is just a sample of what we ordered…the Apps.
Beef & Maytag Blue Cheese Carpaccio
Arugula & Granny Smith Apple Salad, Candied Walnuts & Port Wine Drizzles,
Panko Crusted Crab Boulettes E
mulsified Ravigote Sauce & G-ma's Sweet & Sour Cucumbers
I can't wait to keep on coming back to Rosemary's everytime we visit Las Vegas. It's pretty pricey…but well worth it!
“Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality . Wake Up and Live!”
it's 2009...and we're ready!! just got back from a 2 week vacation to kauai...where we'll be moving within the next couple of weeks. it's been a loooong process due to hawaii's strict quarantine laws. but...with plenty of preparation and planning, foxxy and lennox are both booked on the same flight as us. january 29, 2009...we begin our lives on a little island in the pacific. never in a million years would i have predicted a move back to kauai...at least not before our 30's. i was anti-kauai...eric has always been pro-kauai. i didn't want to move there from california when i was 10...and as soon as i graduated high school i knew i was out of there! i see kauai differently now, after 10 years of "visiting", and a fabulous wedding with our family and friends present, i have learned to appreciate not only kauai and the family (blood or not) that we have there, but where i have been, who i have become, and what is important to us. as life started falling into place and we started to think about our future, we realized that being closer to family and living on kauai was the best decision.
sooo...there's no turning back now. new year. new life. kauai or bust 2009!
