Happy 28th Birthday to me! 


Today is my official birthday, but we decided to celebrate over the weekend since my actually birthday fell on a Monday this year. On Saturday I met my mom and dad at the outlet mall in Anthem and they bought me a Coach purse for my birthday present.

Afterwards we stopped for lunch at Chino Bandido. It’s a Mexican-Chinese restaurant, which may sound strange, but I promise you it’s delicious. It’s been featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and was listed as #41 on Travel Channel’s 101 Tastiest Places to Chowdown. The jade red chicken and jerk fried rice are my favorites (my dad really liked the chile relleno and egg foo young that he ordered too).

Later that night my boyfriend and I went to Midwestern Meats for dinner. It’s kind of an old people restaurant, but their steaks are amazing. The 6 oz filet mignon was only $14.99 and that includes salad/soup, a choice of potato, a side of veggies, and a small dessert. Seriously, it’s the best deal.

As for today, I have to work, but my friends, boyfriend and I are going out for lunch to Firehouse Subs (free sandwich on your birthday) and  tonight my boyfriend and I will probably go to Liberty Market (free meal on your birthday). Maybe afterwards we’ll stop at Baskin-Robbins and I’ll get my free scoop of ice cream! I love birthday freebies!

It’s been a fun birthday, but I still can’t believe I’m already 28…30 is inching closer and closer…
