On Saturday night we had a fancy dinner and some of the girls got all dolled up. I just wore a nice black sweater and boots, too cold for a dress. 

For dinner we had a delicious arugula salad with bits of onion and bacon.

Dinner was AMAZING! Chicken Suprema: A Chicken Breast topped with Aged cheddar and pancetta.

Along with some grilled zucchini and squash.

To make the night even sweeter, the Dad’s gave all the daughters a rose.

For Dessert we enjoyed a small piece of pound cake with blackberry sauce and a dab of whip cream!

I didn’t enjoy the cake too much so I stole a cookie for later and enjoyed a small cup of decaf.

While we enjoyed our late night cookie we worked on some crafts. This was a lot of fun to do with my Dad, we laughed the whole time!

What a wonderful weekend together, I feel blessed to have had this opportunity to spend with my Daddy and I know that I am super lucky to have a Dad that loves me more then I will ever understand.

Quality time with parents is the best. You appreciate it so much more once you don't see them as much.
