Score: February +4

February point #1:  I told you about how we finally closed on our house!

February point #2:  We enjoyed a lazy Sunday complete with grilled steaks (goodbye no-meat January), mashed taters, and wine.

[I wish my food photos could look as good as some of yours...just trust that the steak was AMAZING and cooked perfectly]

February point #3:  Valentine's!  I mentioned the Stout Fest at one of our fav bars. was wonderful.  Wonderful beer, wonderful food, wonderful guy.  Oh and since we like to be non-traditional, I did receive 3 hilarious e-cards for V-day which may or may not have involved our pasted faces on characters and animated dancing strip teases.  Seriously...had me laughing to tears .  That's love folks :)

 [Seriously...simple but one of my fav meals ever. HUGE side salad with the best balsamic vinegar dressing, grilled cheddar, avocado, and tomato sandwich, and homemade pickles that are to die for.  Oh and that's a little stout in the back!]
 [Oh you know he liked it.  He got the 3 course Prix fixe menu which included some kick ass steak carpaccio]

[I know this doesn't look appealing but picture a banana split with Terrapin Moo Hoo (Chocolate Milk Stout) ice cream, tempura fried bananas, a raspberry sauce, and chocolate shavings...obviously that's why the bowl is almost clean!]

February point #4:  Remember that teaching test I've been anxiously talking about?  Well I found out Tuesday that I passed!!   Talk about ecstatic!  Scores are posted online, and I thought I was going to have a panic attack when opening the site.  Then when I saw the passing score, I couldn't stop shaking.  Needless to say, a very thrilling event!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this leads to new teaching opportunities in the future :)

Here's to hoping February keeps racking up the life points!
