Hi! How has everyone been holding up the past week? I’ve been great! I’ve been sitting here wondering where to start with this post, so I thought I’d go with my birthday! Yes, March 16 saw me one year older. And I love it! I truly wouldn’t want to be any other age than 37 right now. I look back to 17 and I was in a crap relationship and had zero self esteem, I look back to 27 and was Mom to a 3yr old and 2mth old, which was wonderful, but I love their ages now. Yes, 37 is GOOD! :) And I was SPOLIED!! My hubby bought me this beautiful necklace: And the fam took me out for dinner to Milestone’s and a movie; Mars Needs Moms (my choice) the weekend before. For dinner we started with balsamic bruschetta; then I had a chicken masala dish over jasmine rice: and my hubby had a seafood meal, also served over rice: . The food was just OK, but it was great to be out all together. Here’s me and my girl! The movie was really cute and projected an amazing message to kids. Lord knows I got an extra tight hug before the kids went to bed that night! On the actual day of my birthday DS had a soccer tournament, but I’ll get to that in another post. Between the 2 morning games a group of us went out for breakfast to a popular breakfast joint here in town. I was feeling a Belgian waffle so I went that route. This baby came with custard, whip cream and fruit (which I had on the side)
I got through a good three quarters of that beast before I waved my white flag! T’was delicious! My hubby’s plate was pretty impressive. Check it out… That evening my hubby made us a great Buffalo Chicken Salad from a recipe he found in my Clean Eating magazine:
I think he did a fabulous job! This is what our plates looked like: And of course there was cake! Last night was a b-day dinner at my parents house. Chuckle chuckle!! Mom made lasagna which I always pass on…too heavy…but I did enjoy the rest of the meal; asparagus, sweet potatoes, steak, pork tenderloin and lentil salad! And my sista made me a gigantic chocolate cake!!! Krista-fest ended at lunch today. My boss always takes us gals out for a birthday lunch and today was the day. We went to my newest favourite joint, a little cafe called The Red Brick Cafe. My hubby and I discovered this place a few weeks back and haven’t been able to get enough of the place since. We’ve only been there for coffee and dessert so I was excited to try lunch. I went with a 1/2 portabello/goat cheese panini and veggies’ with hummus:
Doesn’t that look like a picture from a magazine??? I’m so proud. HAHA It was a great lunch and I’m very lucky to have so many people to celebrate with. I’m such a spoiled brat! LOL
So thank you for reading all about my week long birthday celebration! :) I’m hoping to get a food recap posted tomorrow or Wednesday. Now that hockey is done I have some free time on my hands. Yipee!!!!
Bye for now!!
