Trying to kill time

Until my boo gets here. He's landing at

Phoenix-Sky Harbor Int'l, AZ ( PHX )

Gate: 25
Scheduled: 10:57PM
Estimated: 10:49PM
Aircraft: 757-200R

Yeppers!! This time he gets to come visit me. He's braving the heat. As you can see conveniently outlined below is the forecast for when said boo will be in town. At least it's supposed to be a little cooler while he's here. It's barely breaking 3 digits! That will be a relief. Hopefully it will rain and cool it down even more. If we could get the high 90s that would be awesome. This sounds crazy, but when it cools down to the 90s it's so nice!

Tonight - Jun 30 Isolated T-Storms Currently Cloudy 89° feels like 88° Winds From the South 30mph

Sat - Jul 1 Isolated T-Storms 103°/85° Precip.Chance 30% Winds From the Southwest 9mph

Sun - Jul 2 Partly Cloudy 102°/86° Precip.Chance 20% Winds From the Southwest 9mph

Mon - Jul 3 Isolated T-Storms 102°/83° Precip.Chance 30% Winds From the West 7mph

Tue - Jul 4 Isolated T-Storms 100°/83° Precip.Chance 30% Winds From the West Southwest 6mph

Guess we'll just have to sleep during the day and go out at night.
So it's currently 9:35 and he gets here in a little over an hour. I can't wait. It's been a month since we've been able to see each other, and even longer since he's been in Phoenix. It's kind of nice not being the one traveling.

We don't have much of an itinerary planned. There's going to be a fireworks show Sat night at Lake Pleasant Regional Park, the fireworks are being launched from the Waddell Dam. I think that will be pretty cool to see. I'm glad we found that fireworks show since he will be traveling back in the late afternoon on the 4th and so won't really get to see any fireworks. So that's one thing that is fairly set. We're also going to get 1 hour massages at Massage Envy. I have 2 gift certificates (thank you Marcia and Jaime) for free massages, so we're going to do that. We also plan on having dinner one night at the White Chocolate Grill. That place is awesome! I've been there about 4 times and every time it's off the chain. My favorite items are the:

WCG Bacon Blue Cheese Salad
Mixed greens, Maytag blue cheese, Apple-Wood Smoked Bacon, candied nuts and red onion

Classic Club (big surprise there!)
Cooked in house rotisserie turkey, with smoked applewood bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce and tomato

and last but not least the

Barbecued Baby Back Ribs
Tender-Smoked and Grilled
*** These might just be the best ribs I've ever had. They're tender and the meat comes right off. I'm conoussier, but I know these are off the chain.

So that's somewhere we'd like to go. Another place we'd like to check out is Bobby C's. Neither of us have ever been there, but it's a jazz lounge with live entertainment and some good home cookin' :)

here is a taste of the menu:
Buffalo Wings / Fried Wings / Veggie Basket / Catfish Nuggets / Buffalo Shrimp

Southern Fried Chicken / Catfish Dinner / Chicken Fried Steak / Chicken Fried Chicken / Hot Links Dinner / Fried Shrimp / Grilled Shrimp / Grilled Pork Chops / Smothered Pork Chops / Meat Loaf / Baked Chicken / Vegetarian Platter

Fresh Collard Greens / Mashed Potatoes / Candied Yams / Macaroni and Cheese / Dirty Rice / Black Eye Peas / Potatoe Salad / Fries / White Rice / Fresh Green Beans

Now if that just doesn't sound like smack your mama good, I don't know what is. Ok, I can think of a few things - lasagna, spaghetti, my own pot roast (that's slap your mama two times good!) and some of the cookies that my co-workers keep making that are freaking awesome (insert shout out to Michele and Sheila).

Anyway, the point of this blog was to kill time. I think I've done a pretty good job of that. It's now 10:03 and it's getting closer to time to go get him!!!!

I'm so excited!!
