Now What?

Hey all, how’s it going? Happy Saturday to you. I just got home from dropping the bf off at the train station and cried like a loser. Over lunch we got into a discussion about him and law school, 3 more years of long distance, and being 8 hours away by car instead of an hour and ten minute train ride, and I got a tad overwhelmed. Now I am sitting on my couch watching The Blind Side again.

Last night Alex and I had our date night at The Salt Creek Grille in Princeton, and it was amazing. I took pictures of the food, but the restaurant was very dimly lit and I only had my little Cannon Powershot, but we’ll see how they look.

First up was this fantastic bread, it was soft and warm, and had Asiago cheese on it, thankfully they only brought out one piece for both of us or I would have devoured a whole loaf.

For my pre-dinner cocktail I had this Princeton Flirtini, it was Ketel One Citron, Chambord, and Champagne with a splash of Pineapple.  It was very good.

As my starter I ordered a cup of the Lobster Bisque, it is one of my favorite soups and I order it whenever I see it on a menu.  It was so good, I almost wish I had ordered a whole bowl of it.

To go with our meals, the bf and I both ordered the customizable wine flight.  They give you the option to choose any three of the wines on the wine list and you get a 2.5 oz serving of them.  These are the three I went with.

The Pinot Noir was my favorite.  I love having a chance to try different wines!

For my main course I decided to be adventurous and went with the Stuffed Bell.  It was a red bell pepper stuffed with quinoa, black beans, and mango with Monterey Jack Cheese melted on top.  It was really good, and definitely something different for me.  It was supposed to come with a side of rice, but apparently they were out?  So I ordered the garlic fries instead, which both the bf and I enjoyed immensely.

Horrible, horrible picture, but at this point my camera battery was dying also and I think it got darker.  I really need to remember to bring my SLR when I know I’m going out to eat.  Overall it was a very enjoyable meal, and Alex and I had a great time.

This morning I broke out an ancient box of Pancake mix from the pantry and made a yummy breakfast of pancakes and bacon for the bf and I.  I cannot remember the last time I ate pancakes, and these were delicious.

I was originally planning to meet my sister for dinner tonight, but neither one of us were really feeling up for it anymore, and she’ll be home for her Easter break on Wednesday so we decided against it.  I really have no idea what I’m going to do for the rest of my day, probably just relax on the couch which can be nice.  I hope everyone else is having a nice weekend!

  1. Just a word of encouragement (in case you need it…feel free to ignore, if not :)) on the long distance stuff. My husband and I dated for 5 years long distance and the last 2 and half of it was with him in the Carribean and me in Texas. It was tough but now that we are married and it’s been almost two years I can say it was totally worth it.

    And yay for date night!

    • Thank you, words of encouragement are always accepted. Wow the Caribbean and Texas huh? Well at least that was a sweet place to visit?

  2. Looks like a great dinner! I love the idea of wine flights. My husband can’t drink wine (acid reflux) so we never order bottles (although I could finish one myself, probs!) and I hate spending $8 on one glass. Have a great Saturday! 🙂

  3. Sucks about the long distance thing. If he’s worth it he’s worth it though right? Granted I don’t know him, but I like him anyway!! Lol

    Hope you’re feeling a little better.
    If it helps, it took all the strength I had not to pour myself a glass of wine at 1:00 this afternoon.
    Maybe tomorrow will be better?

    • Yes, I suppose I’ll just have to suck it up for now huh? And he’s worth it. I made it till about 6 before I caved and poured a glass of wine. Cheers to a better day tomorrow.

  4. Hey lady, I know how very hard it is, just having him an hour away. As you know I am in Texas and Craig is in NYC so I understand very well how you are feeling. There are days that it feels so overwhelming and miserable I think it will never end. Just keep in mind that situations are ever changing, take it week by week, not three years at a time, that is too much for anyone! I am here anytime and remember every day spent apart makes every day spent together that much sweeter!

    • Hey girl, yeah I don’t know how you do it! I know things could change and that looking at the whole three years at once is not the best way to go about things, it just realllllly sucks. I do feel I appreciate the time together more though, so that’s true. And 6 weeks, ugh! Have so much fun when you finally see him!

  5. P.S. Craig and I are on week 6 of being apart, I will finally see him on Thursday and I am literally counting the minutes at the point…

  6. I cancelled my saturday night plans and am in the same boat at you- probably a night in again. Oh well. I saw on Leah’s post that you mentioned cyber drinking. I suggested we webcast it. ha ha

    Until then, I’ll be sitting with my laptop and vodka club. Cheers! 🙂

    Oh and last night’s date night looked fun- love that you got to try several wines!

  7. Looks like a really nice dinner. I love getting wine flights. Such a good way to figure out some bottles that you like. Of course, I never remember what I like and what I don’t.

    • Haha nope me either, and best of all I moved all the cards around before they brought the wine and couldn’t remember what order they went in. SO I really had no idea what I was drinking haha.

  8. aw, what a nice date night!

    also, i think if i lived near you i’d be inviting myself over for breakfast a lot, b/c your meal looks awesome!

  9. Oh that must be so hard. The long distance thing feels really draining but it sounds like you two are really in love and worth it to each other to maintain it. I’m so glad that you ended up having a great few days with him! The meals look soooooo good. Love the stuffed bell and of course the pancakes!! Delicious
    Have a fabulous Sunday love!

  10. oh im sorry, i can’t imagine how difficult that must be. damn law school. hang in there chica.

  11. Sooo cool about trying different kinds of wine, very cool!!!

    So sorry about you and the bf 😦 I know it’s hard. I’ve been there buuut it didn’t work out (not because of the long-distance part) but I DO know that if you truly love each other, you will make it work. It might suck at times but the end will be very worth it 🙂
    Much love!

  12. I’m so sorry about you and your boyfriend. But, if it’s meant to be and something you can stick with and stick it out—itll be SO worth it in the end. I’m sure your love will be so much stronger bc of this ya know?
