Texas Roadhouse

This morning I had a dental seminar with my assistant coworkers and we decided to just go to the Roadhouse.
I took the headcount ( 10 people ) and did my call-ahead 1-1/2 hours prior to the time we agreed upon.   I then texted everyone what time the restaurant wanted us to be there so that they would hold our reservation. And then I had 3 people back out.  Two with legitimate reasons and one because of what I stated in the previous post.

So instead of needing two booths, which possibly could have been in separate areas of the restaurant, we were able to fit at the same table.  YEAH!

We ordered Cherry Limeades and Chicken Fritter and Deep Fried Pickle appetizers to go along with their fresh baked rolls and Cinnamon Honey Butter.  I had the 8 oz.  Sirloin and Half Rack of Ribs ( Note:  Will not order ribs again here.  Millers On Main has WAY better ribs! ) with a side of Mashed Potatoes and a Side Salad.  Too much food.  We were all too full by the time our entrees came.

Little did we know that a storm was a-brewing.  I noticed that the sky was a grey-blue when we were on our way there.  When it was time to leave, the sky was dark grey with a down pour.  We had to use our To-Go Boxes as umbrellas.  And even then, it was a wet t-shirt contest with wet skin-clingy jeans and soaked socks.  The Lowe's parking lot was a flowing river.  Was this the end of the world that was supposed to be today?

Afterwords, some of the girls and I were planning to go to Maxx's Tent Party, but with the tornado warnings we all went home.  I've driven in a tornado before and it was deju vu!  Today, I could at least still see where I was going.  It's 9 o'clock now and I still don't know if I'm going or not.  It's still raining with thunder and lightening and the band has been moved indoors.  That completely defeats the purpose of the "tent" party.  We'll just have to see how the night weather goes.

All in all, it was a pretty nice way to spend with friends.  Oh, and I got on the saddle.  Even though I swore I wasn't going to do that ever again.
