Double Date & a Wedding!

Last night, Ian and I went on a little double date with our friends Jeffery and Laura.
We went to a really cool restaurant called Cock of the Walk. It's a seafood restaurant located on a lake...and they have a big cage outside with two peacocks in it...one male and one female.
Of course we had to stop and take a few pictures before we went inside for our "call ahead" reservation!
We don't eat there often...because it's about 45 minutes away from where we live, but we jump at any chance to go! The restaurant is really unique! You eat and drink out of metal dinnerware/drinkware...
They have uh-MAZ-ing sweet tea...
Their fried pickles are to DIE for...and their coleslaw will make you wanna slap YO mama!
Their corn bread is soOoOo good and they flip it in the pan before they put it on the table!
(if they drop it, then the turtles in the lake get it)
They have a really cool fish tank in the lobby...
Their prices are a little high...but that's okay because it was totally WORTH it!

After dinner...we made our way downtown to a little place called "Eighth & Rail," which is a really cool dessert bar venue with leather couches, candlelight, and music.
The band that played was called "Pasadena," (be sure to check out their MySpace) and Ian knows Mike, one of the band members...who TOTALLY looks like Will Ferrell. Seriously. He's the one on the left playing electric...
We brought our UNO cards to play before the band came out...and I totally won!
We had a great time...and can't wait to hang out with Jeffery and Laura again soon!

Today, Ian and I went to our friends Eric and Dara's wedding. It was gorgeous...and so sweet because the groom got emotional...and when he did, he laughed, looked out at the crowd and said, "I'm emotional people!" It was hilarious...and sweet at the same time. :)

It's so cool to go to weddings and sort of re-live the whole wedding experience, and think back about our wedding day...and be amazed how fast time has gone by since Ian and I said "I Do."
That would be us. :)

I hope you all are having a totally awesome weekend so far! :)
