Dinner and a Movie

You feel it coming... another blog about someone other than Jumpin' J.... this one is about my loving and soooo-wonderful-I-can't-even-believe-it husband! He is so great I can't help but write about it for all the world to read!!!!!

He is the biggest lover of surprises that you could possibly imagine. Admittedly I hate them so it makes him all the more determined to make them wonderful! And I have to say that he's had some really great ones over the years, from the surprise cruise, to getting engaged on the cruise, to my baby shower, to my 30th birthday. But for how great all of them were this one was by far the best.

He took me into Boston for the evening and we went to a fantastic 5 course meal at The Melting Pot where we started with spinach and artichoke cheese fondue, continued with cesear salads, mixed in a little lemon sorbet with strawberry sauce, dined on spicey "Moho" fondue with lobster, shrimp, and filet mignon among other appetizing choices, and then topped it off with their signature yin yang chocolate fondue for dessert where we both agreed that the oreo covered marshmallows were to die for! It was almost two hours of pure pleasure for my stomach.

Then to top off the evening we headed back towards the Loews movie theater. We used to be very big movie goers but now that we have Jumpin' J we just don't get out that much so I was excited to just hold his hand in the dark theater and maybe smooch a little. But.....

Turns out we were off to see the new production of one of my all time favorite movies, Dirty Dancing. We had some of the best seats in the house, third row of the balcony center stage!!!! And the show was awesome! It stayed pretty true to the movie and my heart pounded at all the right places while watching the drama of Baby and Johnny on stage. It was great to sit there with Sean and squeeze his hand at all the good parts!!!

And just to really prove what a wonderful fabulous and understanding husband I have let me tell you that he even bought me a ridiculous $10 magnet in the shape of a watermelon that says "I carried a watermelon" on it! I am one lucky lady to have such a great hubby and I didn't even have to carry a watermelon to get him to notice me! Biology notes on the other hand are another story all together...... Happy Valentine's Day!
