Yesterday we had tickets to the Elite 8 game in St. Louis! J got them from one of his mutual fund wholesalers at work. The game was at 1pm so we had planned to drive up a little early and find a place to grab lunch. But, like any city that is hosting such a big event, there was no place to eat that wasn’t packed full of people.
So…we decided we would go to the bowling alley (which was right by the stadium) and have a little bowling competition.
Random I know.
Of course, I hold the Wii bowling record in our household so there was A LOT of pressure to show up my husband.
I talked quite a bit of smack.
For no good reason I assume. I scored an 85.
O-well. I still hold the Wii bowling record!
We only squeezed in one game before it was time to head to the stadium and watch Tennessee vs. Michigan State. Both hubby and I were pretty neutral as to who we were rooting for. I had decided that I was going to cheer for Tennessee because I had orange shoes. Fitting, right? And hubby had an orange and white polo…so he joined me on the Tennessee side.
I guess not everyone chooses who to cheer for based on their wardrobe selection. But when you don’t have a favorite pick…you gotta choose somehow.
Since we skipped out on lunch we made sure that we got some dinner before we left the city. I have been DYING to go to The Melting Pot forever! It definitely lived up to all of my expectations and then some.
I had to BEG hubby to go there…he didn’t know anything about it other than it was “fondue”.
He should know I am always right.
Even after skipping lunch, I am pretty confident that I gained a good 10 pounds at dinner. Well worth it!
