I just love the holiday season!! We decorated our Christmas tree this weekend and listened to lots of Christmas music, it definitely got us in the holiday spirit.
We now have a couple of Birthdays associated with the holiday season. Both Ava’s and Marc’s birthdays fall right around Christmas so there’s lots to celebrate and I am all for it. The more celebrations the better
Saturday night Marc and I headed to Morton’s Steakhouse in White Plains, NY for a dinner date night.
The food was so good
and the service there was unreal.
At the top of the menu, they wished Marc a Happy Birthday. Even if his name was spelt wrong it was a lovely touch! His birthday did fall on a special day 12/13/14
Check out Marc’s dinner plate…. YUM! We clearly LOVE steak.
With our steak we got a side dish of Spinach & button mushrooms and a side of horseradish mashed potatoes. I LOVED the mushrooms. There was something about the crispy outside and the sauce they were served with, I couldn’t help but pop them into my mouth! The potatoes had horseradish in them, I am not a huge horseradish fan so Marc ate a majority of the potatoes but i still enjoyed a couple of bites.
Our night together was a lot of fun and knowing that Ava was with my parents made the evening more enjoyable and relaxing.
Morton’s treated Marc to a Chocolate Molten Lava cake with some vanilla ice cream for his birthday dessert. It is a good thing this dessert wasn’t any bigger because it was incredibly hard to keep my spoon away.
(sorry the lighting isn’t good, but I’m pretty sure everyone would get upset if there was a flash going off every 5 minutes!!)
After dessert, we headed home where we had a birthday cake for Marc with my parents.
Guys, CAKE ON CAKE. It just doesn’t work, we had to pretend to eat the cake with my parents because we were so stuffed.
So all in all it seemed like all we did was eat and eat more this weekend. We definitely treated ourselves but I did keep my portions in check.
I am ready for some clean and healthy eating this week. Who is with me?
This picture of Ava makes me smile…she was so excited the Patriots won yesterday!!
