Dinner at Caps with the Bachelorette
Last night Dave & I headed to St. Augustine to meet up with 3 other couples for a group dinner date. My best friend and old roommate, Stacie, was in town from South Florida so I was crazy excited to see her face along with some other friends that I don’t get to see too often.
We met at Caps, a restaurant featuring delicious southern and seafood dishes, and hung out on the outdoor patio sipping our drinks and catching up for over an hour before we got around to ordering food. We started with appetizers, which featured calamari in a sweet thai chili sauce and fish dip and crackers. I wasn’t feeling super great, so I didn’t indulge in too many appetizers and stuck to a bowl of soup instead.
Last night wasn’t just exciting because I got to see my awesome gal pals. I also got to meet Stacie’s boyfriend, Nathan. They started dating a few months after she moved to South Florida and until last night, I had yet to meet him. I’ve heard so many great things about him over the last several weeks and he lived up to all the praises Stacie has been singing. He was wonderful and I couldn’t be happier for my friend. We actually had a little rose ceremony for him, bachelorette style…
Of course, with so many women at the table the conversation was bound to turn to the Bachelor eventually. And when it did, Stacie picked up the rose from the centerpiece on the table and gave Nathan the cheesiest speech I’ve ever heard before asking him to ‘please accept this rose.’ I couldn’t stop laughing. He was a great sport and took it, while saying he ‘didn’t expect to find love during this dinner, but his fairytale was finally coming true.’ Seriously – laughing out loud right now thinking about those 2 exchanging that rose. Hilarious.
I couldn’t have asked for a better dinner or better company. Lots of laughs were shared by all!
I hope you are enjoying your weekend!
