Hi guys!! If you didn’t already know, boyfriend and I celebrated our 4-year anniversary by spending Tuesday night at Mt. Charleston Lodge only about an hour away from our place.
Check-in time wasn’t until 2PM so, we didn’t have to wake up extra early but we did still get out and about on time to catch breakfast at this cute spot called, Lou’s Diner.
We just love the old-fashioned breakfast joints so much better than those new-school ones. They’re so homey and comfortable. One waitress had blue eyeshadow and the other had blue mascara lol. I felt like I was straight set up in a movie scene.
I had a hard time deciding if I wanted waffles, pancakes, or french toast. It’s a serious dilemma for me whenever I go out for breakfast. 😛
Boyfriend usually always chooses an omelette so it was no surprise when he ordered this one:
It looked scrum-diddly-umptious but, I’m not too big on the omelettes myself so I didn’t even have a bite. He did really enjoy it though and I totally ate half of his hashbrowns because my plate didn’t come with any LOL.
I eventually decided on the french toast which came with ham, 2 eggs, and wheat toast. I gave boyfriend the wheat toast and one triangle of my french toast and then, I devoured the rest. I was surprised because I never eat when I first wake up and wasn’t even feeling that hungry… but, I guess I was!
When we were done fueling up on food and coffee, I went to the bathroom for a quick wee before hitting the road. I saw the cutest little sign in the stall that said “If you sprinkle when you twinkle // Be a sweetie, wipe the seatie”, it definitely gave me a giggle so I was hoping it might give you one, too. 🙂
The drive to the cabin wasn’t really that bad at all! Our car was getting a little sad having to go up such high mountains but, she made it up alive and so did we!!
I was looking out for DONKEYS because boyfriend said there was a sign that said “watch out for donkeys crossing”… I screeched a little when he told me that and cried a lot when I never actually got to see one lol.
My tears were quickly forgotten about though when we turned into the lodge’s parking lot. I was already mesmerized and it wasn’t even time to check in yet.
We walked around a little bit but, there was really nothing to do. After taking boyfriend’s photo in front of the sign that everyone was waiting in line to photograph, we just headed back into the car to wait for 2PM to hit.
Okay, I’m sorry, but I gotta cut this post off here. 😛 I promise I will fill you in on the deets SOON but, right now it’s already 9PM, boyfriend just got home with my espresso, and I’ve gotta go get ready for work!! The SEMA convention is in town and it was busy, busy last night– I can only hope for the same tonight!!
