Meal Plan Monday - Birthday Week - Week 13

We had an okay weekend. Good and bad. Friday sister J came over for dinner and drinks. She had been out of town all week like I was, so it was nice to just kick back and catch up with her. We had some appetizers from Trader Joe's and then I made a mac and cheese with some leftover cheese as well as salmon and asparagus.

Saturday I had Summit duty, ran some errands with the boy and then we met sister J and our friend T out for dinner. It was a beautiful night, and we were looking forward to a nice dinner along the water. We had a nice leisurely meal, some great wine and then when we went out to my car after lingering over dinner, my truck which was parked in a public ramp for all of the restaurants in the area, the passengers window had been smashed and glass was everywhere. I had brought my regular pocket book as well as an evening bag which went with my dress. Most of the important stuff wasn't in it anymore, but my passport and the boys keys were in my regular pocketbook. UGH! What a mess! At least it was nice out so the ride home wasn't that bad. But I hate criminals.

Sunday my parents came over and we went to brunch with them. Thank goodness they came over though, we had to wait until today to get the glass replaced and the boy is still looking for the title of his car to get a key made, since the only key he had was in my pocketbook, ugh.

This week is my birthday week. We have a lot of fun things planned, I am looking forward to it.

Plans - Home, laundry
Dinner - Bacon Chicken Alfredo (it was cold out today, after having weeks of beautiful weather, I was in the mood for some comfort food)

Plans - Movie Screening The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Dinner - We are going with friends C & S so we are grabbing a bite to eat at Coopers before

Plans - We have screening tickets to both Mirror, Mirror and The Cabin in the Woods, not sure which one we will see
Dinner - We have all kinds of free birthday meals, so we will probably use one of those

Plans - JLM shift
Dinner - Probably out somewhere

Plans - Celebrating with friends.
Dinner - We have reservations for 18 in a private room at one of my favorite restaurants. The boy and I are doing wine, appetizers and desserts. Fire Lake is the name the restaurant. I am really looking forward to it, we are going to do fresh flowers on the table and goodie bags for our guests.

Plans - My actual birthday
Dinner - The boy and I are going to dinner at Osteria Il Nonni for their tasting menu. I can't wait. We had an incredible meal there last fall, and I have been telling the boy since then that I want to go back for my birthday. Can't wait!

Plans - Brunch at my parents with my sister and her family, meeting with the kitchen designer to start working on plans for the kitchen remodel, can't wait!
Dinner - No idea, but maybe something low key.

Should be a busy but fun week!
