I finished my paperwork and computer work by about 11 o’clock, and by one Lisa and I were out of the house, her bags packed and ready. We ran by two banks, and then north to Grapevine, where I had decided Lisa was the excuse I’d been needing to check out the remaining Cozymel’s restaurant. The Arlington location of this chain saw much of our entertainment budget a number of years ago, but alas, they closed that store, and left us without a place to go for perfect tableside guacamole! I am happy to report, that at the Grapevine location, the atmosphere, the food, the ritas, and the guac, were all as wonderful as I’d hoped. Lisa seemed delighted—she got both a seafood fix and a quality Mexican food fix.
After Cozymel’s, we entertained ourselves at Grapevine Mills Mall—the Chico’s outlet store was calling our names! Lisa has now successfully been initiated into the Chico’s Passport Club. My photo today, is of the two of us in the dressing room at Chico’s, trying on the same outfit! I bought some stuff (we were lucky to be there on a good sale day!) but not these two pieces. Lisa did, however! Only four more purchases like today, and she’ll be a full-fledged, discount-earning member! And, I can say I’ve brought another friend into the fold! We left there, and managed to fit in an underwear purchase and . . . shoes! No surprise, there, I guess!
I got Lisa to the airport, perfectly on time (although her flight ended up being delayed three hours!) and headed down the freeway to meet Kyle for dinner. I’d received the promotional email for the Italianni’s Wine Dinner, and decided I was in the mood for a good Tempranillo! So, Kyle and I enjoyed a gourmet meal (although we’ve had better meals there!) and three tasty Spanish wines, and celebrated our most successful year to date with East Wind Games. Woo Hoo!
