My Valentine’s Day 2021

So my hubby and I don’t really make it a big deal to celebrate Valentine’s Day. But we figured that this is our first V Day living in a new city, new home, new everything pretty much lol. So we wanted to take advantage of this holiday and celebrate!

We decided last minute that we wanted to try and go bowling. Unfortunately every place was packed so we just decided to stay home lol. And yes we’re being safe out there for those who are wondering lol.

We ended up ordering dinner from a nice local restaurant and ate it at home while watching a movie. We loved all the food that we ordered so we are definitely ordering from them again!!! Here are a few pictures of what we ordered!

Crab stuffed shrimp, fried Brussels sprouts, bbq corn, and biscuits
Hubby had steak and scallops
This was one of our appetizers. It was pork belly with corn. OMG amazing!
All the other food we ordered!

I also told hubby that all he has to get me is a bouquet of flowers, I didn’t want roses because I wanted to be different lol. So check out what he got for me!

I loved it! And the strawberries were delicious too! Yum!

Funny story is that I planned to make my own chocolate covered strawberries so when I saw his strawberries I was surprised, but I definitely wasn’t complaining! Haha! Here are how my strawberries turned out!

I used Hershey’s chocolate to coat the strawberries. So delicious!

So I have to say that I enjoyed my V Day! Did you do anything for Valentine’s Day?!

My Eventful Weekend!

Saturday we hung out with my friend earlier in the day. We actually went to Dunwoodie Pizzeria in Yonkers. My husband got a recommendation for us to try this place out. I ordered the chicken bacon ranch pizza, our friend ordered the buffalo chicken pizza, and my husband ordered a chicken wrap. The food was so delicious!

And it’s funny because this pizzeria is close by and I never heard of or seen it before! I’m glad we went here! They also make homemade Italian ices and sell it all year round! Isn’t that awesome! So we bought a big container of cherry and lemon!

Sunday we went to dinner at this Peruvian Restaurant called Pio Pio in the Bronx for my mother n law’s birthday! I ordered Camarones Cuzco which was a shrimp dish in a citrus sauce with yellow rice.

My husband ordered the Lomo Saltado which was steak mixed in with rice and french fries.

I’ve never had Peruvian food before so the taste and food pairings were a little different for me but my family said they enjoyed everything!

Have you had Peruvian food before?! Comment below!

My 3 Year Wedding Anniversary!

So yesterday was my 3 year wedding anniversary on January 22! But my husband and I have been together for a total of 8 years! I can’t believe it’s been that long! Time is surely flying by!

We went to BH Kitchen and Bar in Manhattan. I ordered their BH Burger and my husband, Danny, had chicken and waffles. The food was so delicious!

We’re sort of an unconventional couple so instead of going on a vacation or to a fancy dinner, we went to Dave and Busters! We played a bunch of games and we had a good ol time! We practically had the place to ourselves so that was a plus!

We ordered the Carnivore Pizzadilla appetizer, I had their Fire Grilled Salmon with Spicy Rice Medley and Sautéed Spinach and my husband had Bistro Steak and Shrimp With Lobster Alfredo Linguine (substituted for marinara sauce)! And for a bar/game play facility, they have really tasty food! Everything was so delicious! If you’ve never ordered food from Dave and Busters then you’re missing out!

We actually have a dining room table that converts into a pool table/ping pong table so we played each other in pool and ping pong when we came home. We’re pretty competitive so it was definitely a good game!

We may not have the house of our dreams, we may not have a house full of kids yet, we may not be able to travel all over the world, and we may not be as wealthy as we’d like to be.

But we have built a great life together so far, and we are grateful and blessed with what we already have. We have such a good relationship that keeps growing stronger each day and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us! 😊
