thanks rose!

i posted not too long ago about using starched fabric to create non permanent wallpaper, but my friend rosemary has taken it to a new level! Super cute idea. Here are her instructions 

1) cut shapes out of fabric
2) soak the fabric in a bowl of liquid starch
3) place fabric on wall
4) let dry

tillman's roadhouse

valentine's day was amazing! we went to tillman's roadhouse and it was hands down the best restaurant i have ever eaten at. first we started with a bib lettuce, orchid petal, blood orange salad with warm crab dressing. then kevin had the ribeye with garlic mashed potatoes, and i had chicken fried lobster with a nice poblano country gravy and some asparagus. ( i know...believe me i never thought i would eat lobster with anything other than butter sauce either) to finish it off we had table side smores. they hand make their graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows. 

it was soooooo amazing! the atmosphere, the food, the design...everything down to the smallest detail was planned out. a fun experience well worth the price tag.
