I’m hoping that since our anniversary has been cold and rainy, our wedding day will be sunny and beautiful!
Despite the icky weather, Ryan and I had a wonderful time celebrating our six year anniversary.
After work we took Sadie on a 20 minute walk in the rain before piling into Ryan’s SUV to head to The Cheesecake Factory to relive our very first date.
We were seated quickly and took some time perusing the novel that is Cheesecake Factory’s menu. If there’s a restaurant with more menu items, I’d like to know about it because Cheesecake Factory’s menu is quite extensive.
After placing our orders we enjoyed the freshly baked bread from the bread basket. I had a piece of the wheat and a piece of the sour dough – both delish!
Ryan ordered the lentil soup as an appetizer and shared several yummy bites with me. It was hearty!
For dinner I dug into the French Country salad, full of candied pecans at goat cheese, while Ryan ordered the tomato basil penne pasta with chicken. Both were tasty!
I intentionally kept my dinner light to save room for this bad boy:
This cheesecake was so delicious. The whipped cream and red velvet cake parts were my favorite.
Every time we go to The Cheesecake Factory I always tell Ryan I want to pay to stick my head under the whipped cream machine. How delicious would that be!?
Opting Out of Gym Class
I read an article today in the Orlando Sentinel that was pretty disheartening. Apparently Florida legislature has added an opt-out clause to a previous physical education requirement that mandated students to have at least 150 minutes of exercise every week in school. The opt-out clause allows students to elect not to take gym class if a parent or guardian signs a waiver.
In a time where obesity is rising continually, how can this be an option? I understand some students cannot/should not take physical education due to various medical reasons, but when 15,000 Central Florida students elected to opt-out, something is not right. I don’t think 2.5 hours of exercise during school is a bad thing, especially when this is increasingly becoming the only exercise many students are getting every day. Just had to get that off my chest!
Did you like gym class?
I always liked gym class. I thought it was fun to learn new sports and have “play time” in the middle of the day.
