Anniversary weekend

This weekend Wah-Wah and I celebrated our 6th anniversary. We decided not buy each other anything since we had our kitchen floor replaced this weekend. I've been wanting to replace the tile that I installed in our kitchen four years ago (Not because I did a bad job, but it was cheap tile and was showing scratches and water marks). Wah-Wah knew some guys from her work that said they would be willing to put some ceramic tile for a good price (I sure wasn't going to try to put in ceramic tile). I thought it might increase the value of my house by a couple bucks.
The original estimate was going to be $1000 bucks and half a day labor. I thought that was fair. Unfortunately the job ended up taking 2 full days and about $1500. Some estimate. These guys did a good job but I prefer a more accurate estimate. I think what really irritated me was these guys kept leaving the back door wide open when I had the air going. I can't wait to see my electric bill.
Anyway, Wah-Wah and I celebrated on anniversary by dropping the kids off at the sitters and headed to the Capital Grille down at the plaza. This was the nicest meal Wah-Wah and I ate since on dinners on our honeymoon cruise. I have to say that the service was excellent well. They decorated our table with rose pedals and gave us complimentary champagne and a appetizer. Wah Wah and I both order steaks and we got complimentary dessert. Despite all the complimentary stuff we got, we still went over $100. It was a very romantic dinner

We will have to try the Capital Grill sometime. Sounds like a nice anniversary.

Usually a romantic dinner out is all we do. Sounds like we need to put Capital Grill on the list - sounds wonderful.

So, how did the mini-vacation at the city with no lights go?
