The other day, I went out for lunch with some of my favorite co-workers/friends. I LOVE these ladies. They are the chocolate chips to my cookie batter. They make my world sweet and I really adore each and every one of them.
We met at our usual place: Cheesecake Factory! It's our tradition to meet there for every birthday.... this time, we celebrated Jesus' birthday!
I ordered the Renee's special, half salad, half chicken salad sandwich, and I subbed the soup for fries.... don't judge.
I ate half of everything. AND.... get this... we didn't even order cheesecake. THAT was a struggle! I love their Red Velvet Cheesecake...man... it's like heaven on a plate. But, I was good.
I did get THESE sweets! I heart them so!
The pillow was HAND-made with the leftover fabric from a wedding project. Thanks Mary! And the apron and spatula are from Jen who always has thoughtful gifts for me! I wish I had a picture of these two because they are some of the bestest friends I have... but they are camera shy. I'll catch them one day....
That night, my Kuya wanted to hang, so we went shopping at Victoria Gardens. I bought a cute plate for my blogging adventures! Pics to come!
We ate at Joe's Crab Shack! YUM! I LOOOOVE me some crabs! We were seated under this guy...
That's the bottom side of a shark if you can't tell.... perfect place to sit no?
The table decor is uber-chic... you dump your scrappies in the bucket there and the roll of paper towels give it a nice touch!
They also give you some tools. A cracker, a slicer, and a wet nap. I keep forgetting to steal that slicer.
We started with the crab dip... I've had better, yet I stuffed my face with this.
Then came our steampot.... hold your seahorses my friends, this ain't no joke.
King crab legs, snow crab legs, a juicy sausage, two red potatoes, corn, shrimp, and a partridge in a pear tree. It was Crab-a-licious!
We ended our sea adventure with this bad boy.
Good thing I ran 3 miles that morning! I totally felt guilty at this point.
The next night, the hubster and I went to Yardhouse with these Incredible friends!
They look fun because they ARE fun!
I ordered these two winners! Spicy tuna roll and Lettuce wraps... healthy and happy hour prices cheap! Yahooo!
Our incredible night was ONLY Round 1.... New Year's Eve will be Round 2.... oooooo you wont wanna miss this... our New Year's parties are EPIC and they're hosted by yours truly... post in the New Year!
Happy New Year everyone!! Enjoy it!
Here are some fun Filipino Superstitious things to keep in mind for New Year's eve:
1. Wear polka dots... it's a sign of good luck
2. Have money in your wallet. Don't leave it empty or it'll be empty all year.
3. Throw coins in the air when midnight strikes. This money dance is like a rain dance... hope for money in the new year!
