My Birthday Weekend!

Friday I had some friends over for dinner. I’ve been trying to invite them over for dinner for the longest time and this day happened to be when we were all available.

I cooked shrimp and veggie pasta with garlic bread along with a herb infused oil dipping sauce! Everything turned out so delicious that everyone went back for seconds!

We also have a large dining room table that converts into a ping ping and pool table so we played a few games too!

They bought me beautiful flowers and a nice card! 😊

Saturday is my actual birthday so my husband took me to one of my favorite restaurants called Tomo! I actually wrote a post about the first time I went.

We ordered Seafood Bisque, Fried Calamari Rings, Beef Rolls, Dinosaur roll, Fantastic roll, Manhattan roll, and a Godzilla roll!

OMG the food was amazing! This definitely my favorite place to go for sushi!!!

My husband also surprised me with NFL tickets to my first ever Pittsburgh Steelers game! I’m a big Steelers fan and have been dying to go to one of their games for the longest time now! I was not expecting to receive this as a gift so I was super excited!

I have to say that I really had a great birthday weekend! I thank God for another year of life! I can’t wait to see what the future holds! 😁

Birthday Weekend in NYC!

My husband’s birthday was on June 30th and he finally hit the big 3-0! We had a fun filled weekend! 


We had breakfast at a local spot in the South Bronx. We were running a few errands in the area before heading to Mountain Creek Waterpark!

Left was my sandwich: Bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich with jelly…Right was hubby’s: Bacon,lettuce, and onion sandwich with BBQ sauce! 😋

We just finished at the Waterpark and are now enjoying our Strawberry lemonade and Rainbow Italian ices!

My cousins and friends had come into town and my mother n law was super nice to cook us all dinner that night. We had baked ziti, baked chicken, rice and beans, and garlic bread. It was so delicious! And we sung Happy Birthday to the birthday guy! 


Now we’re on our way to Bubba Gump Shrimp in Times Square! 

“Run Across America” Sampler Appetizer – grilled shrimp, mama blue’s fried shrimp, seafood hush puppies, spicy chicken strips and bubba’s far out dip and homemade tortilla chips! and a Frozen Coronita!
“I’m Stuffed!” Shrimp – Large Shrimp with Crab stuffing, baked in garlic butter and Monterey Jack cheese served with Jasmine rice!
My beautiful cousins to the left and my gorgeous childhood friend to my right (been friends since the 5th grade!)

Later that night, I threw a party for Danny and invited our friends and family over! 

Our guests were playing beer pong, King’s Cup which is a drinking card game, Head’s Up and other games as well! 

My husband wanted pernil (Spanish style pulled pork) so I cooked it for the first time! His mother makes really good pernil so she gave me instructions on how to make it and it turned out amazing! There was no more pernil left haha! 

I also made Buffalo Chicken dip for the first time and that was totally fine too so I’m guessing everyone like it! 

Sorry that the food pictures look so rough. I took a quick snap shot of everything but I wanted you guys to see all that we had at the party!
