A Partridge in a Pear Tree

Saturday night E spent the night with my parents.  She loves going there.  She would carry her bag to the car is she could and she cries if my parents visit here and leave without her.  These are they kind of grandparents I had.  My grandparents could have given lessons on how to be a grandparent.  My parents must have been taking notes.  Anyway, M and I went to dinner at Houlihan's that night since it had recently opened in the area.  I had heard good things, and the food was good, but the service was TERRIBLE!  It was worse than terrible.  We arrived at 5:20 and didn't leave until after 7 and only waited briefly to be seated!  We didn't have any drinks, so I would think they would be trying to get us to leave faster since our bill wouldn't be much.  M texted for a free dessert, we ordered apple pie with ice cream.  When it arrived, 20 mins later, the ice cream was melted, so it had sat out, waiting to be delivered that long.  Wow.  Won't go back there.  

After we finally got out of there, I wanted to walk around the corner to Pottery Barn.  Last year I had tried to order this:  

Partridge in a Pear Tree Salt & Pepper Shakers

The Partridge in a Pear Tree Salt and Pepper Shakers.  Last year they sold out.  M ordered them for me for my birthday last month, they were backordered until Dec. 8th.  Dec. 8th comes and goes and no shipment.  They actually had these in our store last weekend!  M called from the store and canceled the online order, plus he had a 20% off coupon for the day so we ended up saving $17!  Kinda makes up for the crappy service at Houlihan's.
