Hot Coffee and A Roaring Fire

Last night we went to dinner at PF Changs (Thanks Mom and Dad for the gift card!) and had a wonderful meal.  The kids finally like Chinese Chicken Nuggets (Sweet and Sour Chicken) so after a 5 year break....we are eating Chinese food again.

It was a very warm night, so we walked around Belmar and found ourselves at the outdoor ice skating rink.

We also found a roaring fire on the patio of Baker Street Pub and decided this would be the perfect end to our evening.

I enjoyed a coffee with Bailey's after ordering an Irish Coffee that was disgusting! BLAH!  I'll never order one of those again.  NOTE: It is rarely a good idea to drink TWO coffee drinks at 6pm.  It makes it very hard to fall asleep.

There was a Mom sitting a table away that was drinking wine and watching someone ice skate.  Soon that someone came over and it was a 5 year old boy!  I admit, I judged her a little bit because I would never let my 5 year old ice skate without me AND without a helmet. 

He was cold so he came over to the fireplace.  

She asked us to please keep an eye on her WINE while she went to the bathroom and then left her boy with us.  I was in shock!   

We ended the evening at my favorite store....Sur La Table and I bought a cute little salt container.

Today we're going to see The Muppet Movie!  YAY!  Who is your favorite Muppet?


Mah Na Mah Na


  1. What a fun night and a weird mom.

    I have to admit that we took the kids ice skating and I forgot their helmets. I was a nervous wreck the whole time. Total mom fail!

  2. That salt container is adorable! What was up with that woman? omg!

  3. You might judge me - I never make my daughter wear a helmet. There I said it. I DO, however, make her wear her seatbelt. :o)

  4. What a wonderful night!!! Love the lights :)

  5. I love the Muppet movie! and PG CHANGS :) I think I'm going to make a coffee with Bailey's right now!

  6. OK, hello randomness!

    This lady asked you to watch her wine but not her son? WOW I guess that just shows which thing is more important to her. Poor little guy!

    We don't do PF's very often, its hit or miss there and lately its been more of a miss so it's not on the top of my dining out list.

    I'm glad you enjoyed your evening and that you found such a cute salt container. If I were to come to your house I would think that was sugar, it's a good thing you educated me!

  7. What the!! Watch her wine but not even mention her kid that she left. Wow.

    Glad your family as a great, safe night

  8. Animal, Gonzo, and of course, Miss Piggy.

  9. I like Kermit.

    Can't believe that lady asked you to watch her wine..but not her kid (which would have been weird of her to ask you too). That is crazy!


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
