AWESOME VALENTINE DAY & NIGHT!

We had such an awesome day/night! It couldn't have been better! We had an early reservation at 3:30, so that gave us all plenty of time to do something afterward. We ate at The House Of Prime Rib and I can't emphasize enough on how delicious their prime rib is. In fact, this is all they serve because it is their specialty! Our first time there was about 10 years ago, and we love introducing this place to our friends. The dinner was excellent, and we were all FULL and done around 6'ish. We already had plans to hook up with our other friends who were already in San Francisco, so we got in touch with them and decided to meet at Ghiradelli Square for some dessert! Oh, it was yummy!! The line was out the door, but surprisingly all eleven of us were able to get seated right away! When we were done there, we all drove to Union Square to walk around. The weather was perfect! Too bad we got there too late because all the stores just closed! But, that was okay because it felt good just to walk after we stuffed our faces! We ended up getting home around eleven, and we were blessed because my mom was here to watch the kids for us! We missed the kids too!

Hubby & me cheesin' it for the camera!

You know the expression, "There's always room for dessert!" You know that's right!
