I am so mad that I didn't get ONE STINKIN' PICTURE of Amanda and I! Grrr! But here is a run-down of our little "momcation"......
When we got to Hot Springs, we at lunch at Brickhouse Grill, then walked around for a bit and looked in some eclectic little shops- something that is a HUGE treat since we never could do that with two big strollers in tow. :) We had spa appointments at 3, so we soon headed to the Arlington Hotel for our hot baths and spa treatments:
This is the Arlington at night. I have stayed there a couple of times, and honestly I like hotels to be a little newer. :) But they have a nice spa and I love the history of the place. As I was soaking I was thinking about all of the generations that had been there before. Al Capone could very well have taken a bath in the same room I did! How cool! I got a bath, facial, and massage. And honestly felt like a new woman afterwards!!!
We had decided to go to PorterHouse for dinner, but our shuttle driver suggested the Fusion Cuisine place a few blocks away, so we decided to give it a shot. And OH MY GOSH we were so glad we did!!!! It was beyond ridiculously delicious!!! I mean really!!!! SO GOOD!!!! Amanda had fried Bree with Pesto on Bruschetta for an appetizer, and I ordered the beef lettuce wraps for my appetizer. We shared together and OH MY! I tried hard to save room for the main course, but it was HARD! For dinner, Amanda had the scallops (aka the BEST scallops ever!) and I had the fillet mignon. It was heavenly! Both were served on a corn pilaf type bed. I have no idea. But it was SO good!!! And they could actually cook a steak the proper way! Finally a good, really medium rare steak!!! Oh, how I want to go back! I ordered the suggested wine, a cab, to go with my steak, and Amanda treated herself to a glass of champagne. We were too stuffed for dessert, but I am sad about that because the other food was so good that I really wanted to try their dessert!!! Next time, for sure, no matter HOW full I am! ;) Of course, it was pretty pricey. But worth every cent. I promised Cole we could go soon for him. I think he was a bit jealous! ;)
My mostly finished meal. I snapped this with my phone and texted it to Cole. I just had to share with him too! HA!
