Birthday Recap & 2 Product Reviews

So I am want some wine...badly! We went to Maggiano's last night for Jessica's birthday.  The food was fabulous -- the, not so much. Actually it was borderline terrible.  I was horribly disappointed.  I feel like when you have that kind of dining experience, you are going there for more than the food.  We aren't talking about some secret hole-in-the-wall restaurant that you heard about from your friend's brother's ex! This is Maggiano's!! The food was phenomenal though =)

They mix red wine with the oil to dip your bread
J had the Rustic Chicken & Shrimp -- SO YUMMY!
I had the Crab & Shrimp Cannelloni
Birthday Girl!

Oh and I ordered a GLASS of was like a shot of wine =( I was SO sad! AND it was $8! LAME! I was told that it was so small because it was a dessert wine.  I don't care what kind of wine it was I wanted a GLASS! =/ Oh well it was very tasty.

Alright so I tried 2 other types of dry shampoo.  I tried Big Sexy Hair:
This was the result of using it...

I had to wear my hair up because it looked heavy and a little dirty =/ I tried messing with it 3 different times and didn't really like the results any of the times =/

I also tried this one based on a recommendation from a co-worker. It's called Pssst!  I could only find it at Walgreen's but it's $6!!!! and a big can too!
This was the result of that use:

I am MUCH happier with this product AND it's inexpensive! =)

Tomorrow night I plan on being on my couch with The Husband, watching movies and drinking REAL glasses of wine =)

We had horrible service at the Maggiano's here in Orlando as well... and haven't been back since. But the first time we dined there was in California and had a wonderful experience. It's always disappointing when the food is great but the service is horrendous! On a side note... did you make Jessica that wallet?

I've never been to Maggiano's...where is it?

Nice that the dry shampoo is working! I might have to try some so my hair doesn't look so yuck after I run at lunch. I usually just throw it back and look like a mess :)

We LOVE some Maggiano's!! Family Style is the best! I use that Big Sexy Hair dry shampoo and I'm not really that crazy about it either. It feels dirty to me, but my sister gives it to me because she owns a "Sexy Hair" salon, so I take it :) Have a blessed weekend! xoxo
