GIRLS NIGHT OUT

My mom wanted to take my my girls and I out to dinner on Friday so we could have a "girls night out." This was the night before Veronica's birthday, so it was a great way to start her weekend! She got to choose where she wanted to eat, and ONCE AGAIN, we ended up at Macaroni Grill.

We had great food, a relaxing dinner, and spent almost an hour at Wal-Mart afterward. Perfect way to walk off our meal!

My mom and the girls. Everyone says that Veronica looks just like her.

Miranda & Veronica enjoying their strawberry Italian soda. Cheers!

Miranda also enjoyed her mozzarella cheese appetizer.

We also enjoyed our fried calamari. Seasoned just right!

I always order the same thing, but this time I ordered the lobster ravioli. It had a nutty, buttery flavor. The asparagus was cooked just right. Perfect crunch, combined with the soft ravioli and shrimp.

My mom ordered the salmon. I had it there years ago and it is really good.

And, just like Mac Grill style, the waiters sang Happy Birthday to her in Italian. Here she is, saying she's 6 years old now! Don't you love her fashion sense? She wrapped her play necklaces around her wrists for bracelets.

I am now determined to find a Macaroni Grill locally because the pictures of your food looked so delicious! Especially the cheese appetizer and I'm a sucker for an Italian Cherry soda....it looked quite refreshing!

What an awesome treat from your mom and an enjoyable night!
