Happy Birthday Mom!

Hey everyone; I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend! Even though I’m off for summer break, I still look forward to the weekend because I typically have more things to do & people to spend time with as opposed to the work week. And weekends still seem to fly by all too quickly!

Today, my family & I had yet another birthday to celebrate (Chris’s & my dad’s were last weekend), but first, let’s back track to last night!

For a while, Chris & I had been in the habit of having pizza night at least once a week. Lately, though, we hadn’t been getting it (not since we moved into the house, actually). I was really craving it, so I declared last night pizza night!

We went with extra cheese, & I had 3, yes 3, slices!

The rest of our evening was very low-key, & we actually ended up splitting a few desserts that I had picked up at a local place, Skyline Drive Orchard.

We shared a mini peach pie, & banana cake. The banana cake was probably my favorite; this icing was amazing!

Unfortunately, after 3 slices of pizza & double desserts, I wasn’t feeling that great. I guess that was to be expected!


This morning, I headed off to the gym & completed a 45-minute resistance interval workout on the elliptical. Afterwards, I headed home to prep some baked oatmeal for Chris & I. This morning, I went with blueberry baked oatmeal instead of the chocolate chip we had been enjoying this past week!

My mom’s birthday is actually tomorrow, but since it falls on a Monday, we decided to celebrate today. For lunch, my mom, dad, sister, Chris, & I went to Bonefish Grill. I had heard a lot about the restaurant, but never been before, so I was excited to try it out!

We started with some warm bread & olive oil, which was delicious!

For my entree, I ordered the imperial longfinroyal delicacy pan-seared, baked & stuffed with shrimp, scallops, & crab meat.

My sides were garlic-whipped mashed potatoes (I can never pass up mashed potatoes!) & succotash, which I had never had before (I’m a fan!).

For dessert, my mom & I split their peanut butter & jelly special, which was bread pudding topped with chocolate-peanut butter ice cream & raspberry sauce. It was great!

I also had a few bites of my sister’s brownie sundae, which was fantastic but also super rich!

The rest of my day was spent nursing a bad headache, which feels like it might finally be starting to relent. I’m about to do some meal planning & coupon clipping before settling in for tonight’s episode of Big Brother.

Have you ever been to Bonefish Grill? What’s your favorite seafood dish? I love lobster, but don’t usually get it just because of the price tag. My second favorite would be scallops!

      Even though it’s a chain, the closest one to us was still about 40 minutes away! It was worth the drive though!

    I love Bonefish! My favorite is the Bang Bang Shrimp – not the most healthy thing but it’s nice to indulge. The couple restaurants near us have $5 Bang Bang on Wednesdays :)
