THANK YOU FOR ALL THE BDAY WISHES!!!!!!!!
I’m always such a bitch on my birthday. There’s really no other adjective that can describe the overall mood that comes over me on MY day 😉
I get such high expectations….and sometimes – they actually work out 😀
I’m not kidding. I literally had one of the best birthday’s ever. I didn’t want to go out and party. I told Colin weeks prior that I really just wanted to chill with Jamie & Mike, eat great food and talk about running – mission accomplished!
* normally I make sure my massive head it behind normal-sized heads…..so if you think my face grew, that’s why – oops 😉
We went to Syndicate in Niagara Falls and it had a fixed 3 course menu with some delicious meal options. At $20 a person I was extremely impressed!
The plating was fabulous and the food tasted incredible!
Here’s my meal:
Jamie had the same except she, and the other men opted for apple crisp instead of chocolate!!!! <—- what is wrong with them?!
Colin got the steak and Mike ate the lamb….
….like literally – to the bone!
* He also informed me that he had checked out my 5k race course and confirmed it was short and my current PR is a lie. What an thoughtful guy. Keeping me honest 😉
Locals – I give this restaurant 5 stars!!!!
After a bottle of wine and some good laughs we headed out to do the scenic winter lights drive down by the falls.
I felt like a little kid! There’s nothing I love more than lights at Christmas. There’s truly something magical about light arrangements – to be honest, this really inspired me to try harder on my own house ….next year 😉
….GO! <— inside joke – sorry guys, maybe this will encourage you to hangout with me more
* don’t let this picture deceive you – EVERYONE loved this trip!
I’m pretty sure Colin and Mike wouldn’t shut up about how amazing the Niagara light displays were. There may have even been sound effects – that we created all on our own, for some moving displays 😉
After we parted ways Colin and I drove back home and bought tickets for The Hobbit 3D – it was preferred seating so we actually landed ourselves sweet seats and I was OVER THE MOON with excitement!!
The first night since August that we went to bed after 2am – We’re the coolest!!!
Goal Updates – I will post a small blurb every day below my post so you guys can keep me honest for my 21 day challenges
Current 21 Goal: Wake up at 5:30am
Day 1: Mission accomplished. Survivor (FYI loved the outcome) did NOT make that easy…..because of course I had to watch the entire show and the reunion afterwards…..argh! I also fit yoga and a 7 mile cycle in
1. what does your ideal birthday include?
people getting me things I ask for 😉 good food is a MUST! cake is another MUST HAVE! good friends and fun times.
2. White or Coloured lights for Christmas??
coloured on our house and tree but one day if I ever get a pretty house worthy of white lights – I’ll get some
3. when’s the last time you went out for dinner at a restaurant??
other than Saturday – I can’t even remember. Maybe my last birthday?? Colin’s last birthday??
