Yesterday, Scott and I celebrated our 8th Valentine’s Day. EIGHTH! So crazy. ♥
We went out to dinner on Saturday night because we’re old and didn’t want to on a Tuesday night at Red Drum in Mount Pleasant. My parents have been raving about Red Drum for a while (for both their happy hour specials and their food, in general) so it was time for us to check it out. We luckily had a restaurant.com gift certificate in the vault – spend $50 and get $25 off (SCORE!) – so it was a done deal.
I didn’t take any pictures, because we were too busy being romantical and enjoying the wood-burning fireplace BUT believe you me – it was awesome! The ambience was nice (although loud), the seating was super comfy, our server was fantastic, and I haven’t stopped talking about the food. I’ve been craving a nice big steak so this was the perfect opportunity! I had the Steak Frites and Scott had the Quail, Venison Sausage, and Cheese Grits. No…we are not vegetarians and NO I do not care that I had french fries as part of my Valentine’s Day dinner! Listen – girlfriend’s pregnant. With Scott’s one beer (p.s. they had 17ish beers on tap – Scooter was happy!) and my tall Sprite, our whole dinner set us back about $50 (with tip, tax, and free yummy bread!). It was perfect. ♥
I’ve heard that Red Drum’s brunch is pretty awesome, so we’ll definitely have to check that out at some point!
On actual V-Day – we had lobster tails, baked potatoes, and broccoli at home. We exchanged cards, Scott got me beautiful flowers, and we took our 15 week pregnancy photos.
It wouldn’t be a celebration without watching a movie (Take Shelter) and me falling asleep halfway through. I didn’t even make it to special popcorn!!!
