When Michael first saw my magazine cover he said, “Now Lisa, from now on I’ll start speaking very slowly and use small words so you can understand them. You know, since you’re a cover girl model now.” Hahaha very funny!
He then went on to say that when he bought two magazines at the store the checkout girl said, “You know you have two copies of the same magazine, right?” Michael got to brag a little and explained that it was his girlfriend was on the cover. I guess the checkout girl wasn’t impressed (or thought he was delusion) because she didn’t say anything. Too funny!
Monday night Michael and I got dressed up and went out to dinner to celebrate FIRST coming out. We had reservations at Mint/820.
Michael ordered the angus burger with green chili aioli, onion rings and sweet potato fries. The sweet potato fries were to die for and the onion rings arrived ON the burger. They were crispy and salty to perfection.
It had grilled tomato slices on it. At first I thought they were red peppers. My burger was perfectly prepared and what impressed me the most was how smokey everything tasted. It was fantastic! I wish I hadn’t been so full. I ate half the burger and part of my salad.
Dinner took a long time. We enjoyed every relaxing minute of it and then headed to the grocery store to see my magazine on the stand!
Thank you for all my readers that bought a copy of the magazine. It means a lot!
QUESTION: Do you have Groupon in your city? Have you used it much?
