Dinner at Il Vicino

Posted on March 20, 2011 by under Family, Things to Do.    

Brian took a picture of me while I was getting ready for dinner yesterday. There are several things wrong with this picture. For instance, my arm pits look extremely hairy. However, it’s been a really long time since I’ve been able to wear a cami so I’d say we’re making progress and just leave it at that.

Jen Tevs was a great sport. She decided to take one for the team and get there way early to make sure that we got a table. Brian and I didn’t want her to wait by herself so we decided to go early ourselves. Since we just live down the street from the restaurant, it wasn’t too much trouble.

We were just hanging out a home (Brian was playing a video game and I was drinking a Woodchuck), killing time. Brian was also starving so he wasn’t averse to the idea of getting there early.

I’m glad we got there early to secure a table because the Bradley Fair Il Vicino was busy that night. The line was out the door.

Jen and I took some photos while waiting for Jenni, Maryland and mom to show up.

I was amazed that everyone showed up on time!

The pumps I’d given to Jenni a long time looked great with her outfit. They were brand new when I gave them to her because I’d gotten them too small. I usually have to drop a half size when I wear heels that are 3 or more inches. I think these had 4″ heels, so I got them in 5.5 (instead of my usual size 6). Wore them around the house and decided they were too tight. I really didn’t want to part with them, but I don’t really like to hassle with returning stuff online. Besides, I knew they’d be perfect for Jenni. She says she still needs to break them in. She must not wear them that often. They looked fantastic on.

Incidentally, she was also wearing an old hounds tooth mini skirt that I’d given her. I can’t imagine that I was ever that tiny. Oh, how I long for those days to return.

When everyone got up to order food, I stayed behind to hold our table. Jen Tevs let me play with her color Nook. It’s really neat!

I love that you can browse the internet with it. I think it’s only a matter of time before these multifunction e-readers and tablets render netbooks completely obsolete.

Anyway, we had a good time at dinner. Thanks for the invite Jen Tevs! We’ll need to do this again soon. Or better yet, we could make it a regular monthly thing. Except, we’ll have to try a different place each time. What do you guys think?
