I'm going to try for this, although I seem to be unlucky with your giveaways. ;) B and I didn't get to go out for our 5 year anniversary because we were all sick so this would be great.

Gina said...

Gina said...

I'd pick Outback, but I wouldn't tell B I had the choice of Red Lobster, ha!

I'd order a gluten-free meal to check it out for Lo. Who knew they had a gluten-free menu? Awesome!

Yea, I'm that competitive, mmk? So I better win. And no body better steal it from the mail when you send it to me!

Dur, I follow.

Me yuvs the stuffed peppers at Maggiano's & the margaritas at On the Border. Oh, crap, you said eat. Hmmm... Chips and Queso. Hello? What's better than melted, gooey, cheesy goodness on a fried chip? Nothin.
