Since it was my birthday, I got to choose the restaurant to go to. Unlike most families, we don't usually go out to eat, so going out on our birthday is super special! The restaurant I chose was Applebee's! (I chose it since I had not been there in so long!) I loved my new wallet so much that I brought it with me to dinner! It didn't quite match my outfit, but ohh well. It's too cute not to bring!
It was an simple yet amazing night! It was nice just to be able to go out and enjoy a dinner with my family to celebrate my birthday! The thing about my local applebees that I like is how friendly all the waitresses are! They are always upbeat and helpful! They even since happy birthday to you on your birthday! The food at the restaurant was pretty tasty as well! There isn't a wide selection, but whatever you choose is delicious!
For my meal, I hate a three cheese penne without the chicken. The penne came with a seasoned breadstick for dipping into the cheese. (Which I didn't do haha) The pasta itself was really good! I am a huge fan of cheese (yeah, I know some people have sweet or salty tooths, but for me, I just love anything dairy!), so the penne was perfect for me. The penne was covered with cheese and had a cheese sauce on the bottom. What made the meal so unique were the bits of tomato on top. They were the juiciest tomatoes I had ever had! I think I need to get my hands on some of those tomatoes!
There was quite a bit of pasta that was given to me, so I shared some with my mom in return for some of her meal. I am a vegetarian so the steak was obviously out of the question for me, but I did try some of her mashed potatoes and broccoli! The mash potatoes were tasty, but what I really loved was the broccoli! They were seasoned to just the right amount. I loved them some much that I actually ate all of them from my mom's plate! That was okay with her though because my mom said she loved the penne I ordered. I call it sharing haha!
My sister order a salad with chicken. I didn't get to try some of her salad due to the fact that there was chicken tossed everywhere. It looked pretty good, but for me, I am not a huge fan of salads. I hate raw vegetables and I can only eat them cooked.
Before leaving, we snapped some photos of all of us. I originally wanted to wear a skirt to dinner, but it was way to cold and I couldn't find a pair of leggings to match it. I just ended up with my cute puffed shoulder bow patterned shirt from forever 21 and a pair of jeggings! I finished the look off with some boots and an adorable bracelet!
And here is a picture of my mom and I together and one of me with my mom and sister. I had to block my sister's face out since she didn't want to be seen...
Overall it was just a super sweet night! I loved being able to relax and enjoy my birthday! By far it was one of my favorite birthdays! I enjoyed every moment of it and I still can't believe I'm 17!!!
