{full as a tick & 40}


Dinner at Maggiano's Little Italy





that is something that my husband says whenever he is full, stuffed, eaten WAY too much. Well, this weekend, as we celebrated his 40th birthday, I think that we were all full as ticks!! My in-laws flew in from Frankfort, Kentucky on Friday evening (this was supposed to be a surprise, but didn't quite work out that way....no thanks to the guy at the car rental place) Any-who, they arrived and we had a wonderful evening enjoying the family style meal at Maggiano's in Jax. If you have never been to a Maggiano's and have one in your near vacinity and like Italian......get in your cars right now, do not pass GO, do not collect 200 dollars, you cannot go wrong!). Today, was "do whatever Mark wanted to do day" because it WAS HIS birthday. He wasn't getting an Over the Hill party, no big "to do", its just not his style. So, taking a day to do what he wanted because he so often does a lot of things that WE want to do just seemed to be the most fitting way to celebrate his big day. He has been wanting to go to this place near St. Augustine called the PGA World Golf Village and it was beautiful. We got there really late because we took our time this morning, eating a big breakfast and just visiting, while taking a tour of the downtown area.After arriving, Mark shopped and we all had lunch/dinner at the Caddy Shack and then Mark shopped some more. They actually have a really fun "hands on" World Golf Hall of Fame that is gigantic there too. We didn't make it there, that is saved for another day, because we didn't have time. Then home for some "oh my goodness" chocolate on chocolate cake from a local bakery. I feel like I have not stopped eating today. I hope that Mark had a good 40th, it was without a lot of pomp and circumstance, but he's not really a party kind of guy. FYI, I AM a party kind of girl. I've already started planning........................

Oh my gosh - I am a party kind of girl too and Kev, well when he gets into it he is, but otherwise not. I think it is a great idea to plan a "Whatever you want to do day" . I am so going to do that for Kev's B/day. Keep us posted on your plans for your B/day ;)

Too funny, that's what Wade always says when he's full. "Full as a tick". I always add, "on a deer neck". The first time I said that we were out to dinner with the lady that set us up and she said, "OMG ya'll are made for each other!!".

"Full as a tick" has me LOL! I knew a guy from TN who taught me a lot of great sayings like "More nervous than a long tail cat in a room full a rockers . . ."
