Tuesday I woke up bright & early at 4:45.
Dean & I went out for birthday dinner #2. We went to Roberto's. You know, home of the best shrimp poboy. They don't serve poboys at dinner so I went with sauteed red fish with shrimp, almonds & a burre blanc sauce with asparagus & mashed potatoes. It was delicious.
Friday night we had dinner at Caliente with friends. Just our normal Friday night.
Saturday morning I was running in a 5K at St. Joseph's Academy.
Saturday evening Scott & Lydia were running a 5K at Mockler Beverage. They also had a 1/2 mi. Fun Run that Logan was running in. He was so excited!
Once the race was over it was off to Birthday Dinner #3! Allison picked me up & we met Vicki & Wendy at Mansur's. I was suprised. They hadn't told me where they were taking me. I love Mansur's! We shared the char grilled oysters & had wedge salads. Why is it a wedge salad is soooo good? I'm pretty sure if I chopped a head of iceburg lettuce in half & put blue cheese on it, it wouldn't taste nearly as good. For my entree I had shrimp, crawfish & crab alfredo. It was delicious. I couldn't finish it so I'll be having it tonight.Then they surprised me with a piece of blueberry bread pudding with a candle in it. It was delicious too! It was so fun being able to have a girls night with my friends.
Halloween was a very exciting day for Baton Rouge. It was the day Trader Joe's opened! This is the first Trader Joe's to open in Louisiana! Dean & I went this morning. It's a great store & I'm so happy to have one in town.
My mom came over today & we went to brunch for my birthday at Frankie Marcello's. We had the Eggs Sardou. Soooo good!! I think that was the last birthday meal I'm getting this year which is probably a good thing. I need to be running more & eating less. I'm only 5 weeks away from my Half Marathon!
How was y'alls weekend?
