oh yeah, i was promoted



so i've been officially promoted and i am not moving to the uk at this time. this is the reason why my hours have been so incredibly nutty. i am certain we will just have to see how it works out. there seems to be a lot of that going on in my life these days.

last night, the best friend and i were going out to celebrate my recent promotion. originally, we thought we were going to stop into corso. yet, when we arrived the wait was a bit too long for our liking and headed over the cesar instead. absolutely not a tragedy. i love cesar. there was a wait at cesar as well. yet we were able to sip on drinks by the bar while we waited.


i think this is kind of key factor in the waiting process. the bartender (as usual of all of the bartenders i've interacted with over the years) was great. we also lucked out and had a top notch server last night as well. the food, as usual, was absolutely lovely.

we ordered a lot.






we ate a lot.



we talked and talked and talked a lot.

i actually finished an entire tequila love cocktail,


for the low alcohol tolerance foodie hunter, that was rather amazing.

it all reminds me that i am quite lucky. i love and am loved. i live in a wonderful foodie neighborhood. i am appreciated and recognized at work....and guess what? i am heading to rome for vacation in a few weeks. yes, i know it will be scorching hot and a lot of places will be closed.....but it is ROME! i've always wanted to go. i'll just stomp around during the mornings and early evenings. i have a feeling i'll be doing quite a bit of blogging during the hottest parts of the day...so you may be seeing quite a bit from me during my vacation.

well, i think it is time for me to get to bed and try for an early night. early nights a bit rare these days. until later dear hearts....

hugs and love-

me

Congratulations! Recognition is soooo important!

As for Rome, the heat will just be an excellent excuse to eat lots of gelato;)
