So this is a Bloomin' Onion.

It's an appetizer at Outback Steakhouse, and it's pretty bangin'. Seriously, if you haven't experienced Outback's Bloomin' Onion, stop reading, find your way to your nearest Outback, eat a Bloomin' Onion, and then come back to this post so you can fully appreciate it.

Cate's social media presence revolves around Outback and messing with men on tinder tbh

I just right swiped a man on tinder because his bio said he worked at Outback. I'm just here to get a free Blooming Onion

@WhyS0Serio still trying to get that blooming onion

@WhyS0Serio Annnnnnndddd the blooming onion is secured

And then a fellow Outback fangirl chimed in on the whole affair

I know I don't know you but I'm OBSESSED WITH ALL OF THIS (and same)

Fast forward to this past Monday, January 2.

GAME TIME! Watch the @OutbackBowl in a game where #everyonewins. Free app on Jan 3rd.

We were rooting for Florida. That free Bloomin' Onion was within Cate's grasp.

And then, finally...

Congrats to @GatorsFB for winning the @outbackbowl! Join us tomorrow Jan 3rd for your FREE Bloomin' Onion with pu…

Bloomin' Onion secured.

And Cate realized that her previously-failed quest for a free Bloomin' Onion was due to 2016, because obviously.

I've been asking men on Tinder for months to buy me Bloomin Onions & now a whole college football team did. 2017 is…

So we made lunch plans.

Cate and I have lunch plans tomorrow now

And it really truly happened.

Thanks @Outback & @GatorsFB for the free Bloomin Onion. Dreams really do come true 😍😍😍

Even the Florida Gators were happy for Cate and the Bloomin' Onion.

But the story didn't end there.

@WhyS0Serio Delicious dreams always come true!

In fact, Cate and Outback were about to get serious. A tweet from Outback was all Cate could have hoped for and more. I mean, she literally cried.


@Outback @WhyS0Serio it's been a good day

And obviously I had to clue Outback in with how serious Cate's love was.

And Outback was ready to commit.

@linderlady @WhyS0Serio This is true love!😍

Heart-eyes emoji means business.

And then Cate almost got in an accident on our way home from the restaurant because she started crying again.

And I told Cate she needs to hold out for a man who makes her feel the way Outback does.

So Cate gave up her 102-day snap streak with a man later that day.

"It's so amazing. I just love Outback so much." -Cate, January 3, 2017
