Sunday was my birthday, but we celebrated on Saturday night, enabling us to visit Gourmet and Company, our favorite restaurant in Johnson City. (They are closed on Sunday.)
The white pants are more than four years old. Most of my white pants are denim, but these are such great fitting and high-quality pants that I have kept them. They are by Fabrizio Gianni (similar style here and here). The jacket and tank combo are also a couple of years old. I purchased the set here.
I clasped two of the same pearl necklaces together to make a strand long enough to wrap several times. Similar pearls are here. The bracelet is here. (Use the code SAS10 For $10 off any item at Beauty in Stone Jewelry.)
The Marc Fisher pumps are from earlier this year. Limited inventory is still available here.
You may find it frustrating that most of my items are from previous years, but hopefully, you can find current classic items using the examples. I always try to find links to similar things to share with you, and I may earn a small commission from those shopping links.
Mr. Mickey is also a fan of classic, high-quality items, which he enjoys for many years.
We avoid crowds and enclosed spaces, so we have not visited a restaurant since the beginning of June. For this significant evening, Mr. Mickey arranged for a table with an umbrella away from the building in a small parklike area.
Earlier in the day, he delivered a gift and red roses to the manager, to be brought to the table after we were seated. We toasted with champagne, enjoyed a delightful meal and excellent service.
Mr. Mickey was thrilled to again have his favorite deviled eggs with smoked trout.
We also ordered the fabulous truffle fries to share. The hand-cut fried potatoes get tossed in a delightful array of fresh herbs and spices just before serving. Delicious!
We were so excited to enjoy a meal I didn’t prepare; we almost forgot to take pictures. I had the house-made pasta with fresh vegetables, and Mr. Mickey enjoyed the heirloom tomato salad with seared scallops.
Glasses of twenty-year-old Tawny Port and a Bananas Foster were the shared birthday dessert.
Mr. Mickey knows that mosquitoes consider me an all you can eat buffet. Earlier in the day, when he dropped off the gifts, he sprayed the area where we would be seated with repellent. It worked! I didn’t get even one bite. He will always be my hero.
