Celebrating Mom!!…

Hello there!  Happy Tuesday to you!  I hope your week is going well.  This week is going well for me so far.  I’m not liking that there is rain today but what can you do?  I’m almost glad that it’s not snow and that it’s just rain.  I need a bit of a break from snow for a while.  Unless we get a massive blizzard, then I’ll be happy.

So yesterday after work, Melissa and I were anxious to get things together to celebrate our mom’s birthday.  We picked up dinner from a local Mexican restaurant.  My mom is in love with Mexican food as much as I am.  I guess that is where I get it from.  We also picked up her birthday cake that we ordered.  We couldn’t wait to see how it turned out and it was exactly what we were thinking.  You will see the pictures shortly!

Mike had the table set and ready to go once Melissa and I arrived to our house.  That made things a lot easier to get ready before our mom arrived.  Before we knew it, it was time to celebrate with the birthday girl!  I ordered a chicken burrito and it was massive!  Luckily, I have the rest to enjoy at lunch today.

This was a different Mexican place than the one that we normally like to dine at.  I have to say I was pretty impressed by this place too!  It’s much closer to where we live and the food is just as good.  I’m glad.  We could use great Mexican restaurants in the Philly area that aren’t chains.  I am not a fan of any of the chain Mexican restaurants.  Their food is awful!  Do you like Mexican food?  What is your favorite Mexican dish?

After dinner, it was the moment we had all been waiting for!  We gave mom her birthday gifts and celebrated with birthday cake!  They did a phenomenal job!  Take a look.

Our mom loves chocolate chip cookies and they were able to coat the entire outside of the cake with freshly made chocolate chip cookies.

That was not it!  When you sliced into the cake there was a surprise waiting…

The inside of the cake was filled with fresh strawberries and whipped cream!  Our mom loved it!  Who am I kidding?  I loved it too!  The cake was so light and fluffy.  The strawberries were very fresh and made for a nice bite of the cake.  The cookies on the outside of the cake were delicious as well.  They were fresh and baked right in the bakery.  They really did a great job!

I think our mom had a great birthday!  I know all of us worked hard to make sure that she had a special 60th birthday and one to remember.  We love her very much and she deserves nothing but the best for her 60th year and always!

Have a great Tuesday!
