Hershey PA

This weekend was absolutely amazing. After rehearsal on Saturday, I heard a knock at my door and it was my boyfriend ANTHONY :)!!!! It was so wonderful to see him... I sometimes forget what its like to have someone that I love around.. its so refreshing.

We headed into the city to go out to dinner. OH MY GOODNESS I MISS THE CITY! Not only is it incredibly  beautiful (IM SORRY I THINK IT IS) but it is so much fun! We walked around, went out to get dinner, and just enjoyed each others company. 
After our city fun, we went back to my house (WHERE I SAW MY PUPPY CODY!!! god i missed him) 
Next day we got CHIPOTLE (I love their vegetarian salad... no cheese) and then headed back to CT. Although We didn't get much time together, it was amazing and I love spending time with Anthony. I am really lucky to have someone who cares so much about me, and would go out of his way to see me... even hen I happen to be far away. 

Well today we left early from CT to head to PA. We stopped about 4 hours into our trip for lunch. I was hoping they would stop at a service area where there are lots of options, but they just pulled off of the pkwy into a random area. There was nothing but fast food, and a Bob Evans. Ive never been there but some of the girls assured me it was decent. Well I ordered a vegetable stir fry. I was excited that I had found something I could eat even under those circumstances. It came out and was pretty much a huge plate of rice and a MINIMAL amount of vegetables. I was mad. I hate when restaurants advertise one thing and then present you with another!!! ROARRRRR

Then once we got here there wasnt much but a TGI FRIDAYS, so we went there. I asked if there were any vegetarian options and the jerky waiter replied "We dont really cater to vegetarians." That made me even more annoyed. I ended up getting a "Santa Fay Chicken salad" minus the chicken and cheese, vinaigrette on the side. Of course when it came it was doused in gross ranch dressing. I just couldn't win! They were so slow and rude... I HATE RESTAURANTS SOMETIMES!!!

What a FABULOUS weekend, indeed!! Glad you had so much fun :0)

Okay, that waiter at TGI Friday's needs to be fired - I can't believe he said that! Blah.

I sympathize with you so much! When I was in Washington last week, every restaurant seemed 100% anti-vegetable! I ordered a salad at one place and it came with pepperoni. What kind of freak eats a salad with pepperoni???

Ugh, that stinks. We went to TGI Friday's a couple weeks ago, and I had a hard time finding anything good to eat, too. I wasn't in the mood for a salad, so that didn't leave much. I had sweet potato fries. Real healthy!

TGI Fridays is the worst! They used to have a great portabello pasta dish, but they took it off the menu for some reason. I do like their big-ass cocktails though.

How sweet of Anthony to show up at your door!

Restaurant waiters are the WORST @ places like TGIF!! You just have to keep reminiding yourself that it's probably someone who hates his/her job, and they make WAY less than minimum wage! After that, all you can do is "grab a bottle, hunker down, and pray for daylight," as Karen from Will & Grace once said!! :)

I'm glad you had a good time with Anthony, but those food options leave a lot to be desired! TGIF is the worst, another restaurant where there is nothing to eat except iceberg lettuce and french fries, you'd think they'd get with the times already!
