Lifehouse Concert Rocks!!!

Last night, Ray took me to a Lifehouse concert in San Antonio for my birthday. On the way there, we stopped by Cracker Barrel. I must say that I like that place less and less everytime we go. We got lost on the way there but somehow made it on time.

The concert was at a small bar, Scout Bar, which was in the middle of no where. Of course, we found out soon enough that it was standing room only. So, we were standing for about 3+ hours. Was it worth it? Heck yeah!! Lifehouse was in one word...AWESOME!! They definitely rocked out and did stuff that was not on their cd. For a minute there, we thought we were at a Seether concert. Excuse the blurry pics...my iphone camera sucks in the dark.

On the way home, the GPS took us on a rural road back and straight face to face with a deer in the middle of the road. Luckily Ray's swerving helped us avoid hitting the dumb deer. The deer didn't even care that he was going to die. Of course from then on, the ride home had us on edge. Tryng not to fall asleep in the middle of the night...that was the longest 1 1/2 hour drive ever.

Happy Birthday to ME!!!!!!!

For my birthday on Wednesday June 4th, Ray took me to dinner at Truluck's...a local seafood restaurant well known here in Austin.

We knew going in that it was going to be pricey. No dungeness crab in these here parts. Truluck's serves stone crab fished from their very own fisheries. I ordered the North Atlantic Jonah Crab Claw Platter and as you can see, there were 9 claws on my platter. Ray had the Alaskan King Crab which came with one ginormous crab leg. He wanted to support the fishermen from his favorite show "Deadliest Catch". From the price we paid for that one claw, we understand why those fishermen make so much money.
The meal ended with a chocolate lava cake...on the house. So, overall, we were happy with the meal. It was very good, however, definitely a bit pricey for our taste. Being Chinese, we would still be happier going to a good Chinese restaurant and ordering the typical crab cooked with green onion and ginger.
