Last night's dinner almost did us in.
I've been trying to redeem myself and wipe away the memories of a really yucky dish I made, one which shall remain nameless and I should just shred it and burn the pieces and toss them over the ocean.

Alright, I'm off to put some lentils, veggies and veggie broth in the crock pot for dinner, clean the kitchen, and get dressed for a birthday party. And then later this evening, DATE NIGHT!!! *excitedexcitedexcited*
Hopefully we'll be able to do our shakes this time, albeit late tonight!
See y'all tomorrow! Thanks for sticking with me through this. Your supportive and encouraging comments are so appreciated =)
