Yowsahs! What a Saturday! It’s been full of driving, lounging, and eating fast food. Let’s just say it hasn’t been the healthiest day!
After grabbing a couple of iced coffees at Starbucks this morning, Mal and I headed to Murphy’s vet appointment. Murph weighed 9 pounds! Three pounds more than his first appointment, which was just 3 weeks earlier. I can’t believe how quickly he’s growing!
Muprhy also got a few more puppy shots, which he didn’t like at all, but some treats made it all better.
Kisses for a brave, little puppy! 😉
Look at that face!!! Too cute!
After the vet, we picked up our friends, Dave, Marie, and Josh, and it was time to visit Sonic! We had heard rumors about 3-hour waits, so we hit the road early.
And the rumors weren’t far off! We waited in traffic for well over an hour before even ordering our food!
I still can’t believe how many people were at Sonic this afternoon. It was nuts!
Luckily, we had each other (and the dogs) to entertain ourselves, so an hour in the car wasn’t that bad.
The line of traffic was endless! 😯
When we finally arrived at Sonic, we pulled into the carport and ordered our food, which then took another 30 minutes to arrive at our car. Not what I call “fast food!” 😐
And when the food finally arrived, our order was totally wrong. They had forgotten 3 items, didn’t bring straws or napkins, and didn’t give us the half off Happy Hour price for our drinks. It wasn’t a big deal– just sort of annoying, especially after waiting so long!
For lunch, I ended up ordering some Tots and a vanilla ice cream cone. Neither were anything special– pretty much standard fast food. Meh. 😕
I’m not much of a fast food fan, so it wasn’t surprising that Sonic was just okay in my book, but NO ONE in the car was impressed either. Mal and Josh basically equated their burgers to one from Burger King and Marie said that the French fries were soggy and nasty. Mal liked his Cherry-Limeade, but I thought it was absolutely disgusting! It was so syrupy and artificial tasting. Ick.
Bottomline: Sonic was a total waste of time and the food wasn’t anything special. I’m glad that I saw what all of the hype was about, but I definitely won’t go out of my way to go again.
We spent the rest of the afternoon at Mal’s parents’ house relaxing by the pool. Marie and I worked on our tans while the guys played Polish Horseshoes.
Marie and I enjoyed a fruity cocktail by the pool. 😎
Murphy loved the country living! 😀
We hung out by the pool for hours before packing up for dinner at Five Guys.
Five Guys was fast food heaven compared to Sonic!
And the place was bumpin’ on a Saturday night!
Everyone seemed to love Five Guys!
Five Guys was de-lic-ious!
I love a good burger, but I’d rather have one right off the grill than one from a fast food joint. Even though Five Guys is technically a fast food restaurant, it’s definitely in a league of it’s own. They use only fresh, never frozen, ground beef, peanut oil for their cooking, Idaho potatoes for their fries, and the menu is trans-fat free.
I loved that Five Guys make note of where their potatoes come from each day.
The best part about Five Guys is all of the toppings you can choose for your burger. I ordered my “Little Hamburger” with everything, except for BBQ Sauce and Mayo. It was packed with veggies and exciting flavors.
It was an AMAZING burger– one of the BEST I have ever eaten!
And it was easily the best burger I have ever eaten from a fast food place. Everything was sooooo fresh– unlike a typical fast food burger. To tell ya the truth, it actually didn’t seem like fast food at all.
The French fries at Five Guys were pretty awesome, too! I ate a bunch!
I still can’t believe that I ate fast food twice today, but whatever. It was a fun splurge day with friends, and I enjoyed myself a lot. I am, however, looking forward to some healthy living tomorrow! 😉
Good night, blog world!
