I’ve never really had much of a true-to-form Valentine’s Day, so this year I’m excited to do it right. Alicia and I became more “official” shortly after Valentines 2010, so this is our first one together as a couple.
For quite awhile Alicia has mentioned she’s been wanting to try out The Melting Pot in downtown Salt Lake, but it seems that every time we head that way to work we always end up at Charlie Chows (it’s really, really tough to resist Charlie). Well, Charlie’s may be a favorite, but it’s not a nice, romantic setting for our first Valentine’s together so I decided to make a call and set my first real dinner reservation at the Melting Pot. It’s gonna cost a lot more than Charlie’s ($65/person! Ouch!) but I think it’ll be worth it.
To help supplement this dinner outing I’ve commandeered our change jar in the bedroom to to help cover that cost. I don’t really know how much is in there at the moment but hopefully it helps knock that final tally down! I think this will become our expensive dinner fund, maybe get to use it once or twice a year?
UPDATE: Just found Alicia counting what we had in there as of today. $50! Not too shabby of a start right? Well, we’ve got another month to beef that up with some more change. Looks like it’s time to start using cash more!
