Yesterday was my beautiful husbands birthday! He wanted me to take the day off, and since that was impossible, I made it up to him by taking him out to a local restaurant on the beach. It's a casual place with an island atmosphere and live music. Despite it being a laid back atmosphere, I decided to step out my comfort zone and where something "sexy". I pulled out this dress that I had once worn once, a couple years ago and some heels that had been collecting dust in my closet since last summer. I was totally overdressed at the restaurant, but hey - I wasn't dressing for them, I was dressing for my husband.

I'm not gonna lie, I was feeling like a stuffed turkey in that dress but my legs looked amazing, lol!
This was his first time at this restaurant. For the entire day he would ask me where we were going and I wouldn't tell him. Thankfully he was pleased with my choice, I'm sure we'll visit together again.
These wings were good but they need to drop the "Jamaican" off the title - they were not Jamaican jerk at all. Very misleading for two Jamaican's who thought they were going to get an authentic dish... but they were yummy though!
My husband surprised me with his meal selection. I guess he decided to go out of the box for his birthday, lol. Normally he gets seafood when we dine out - so this was very much to the left for him. He thoroughly enjoy his meal, that's all that matters.
My order was out the box for me as well since I'm not a big fish person. I actually didn't start eating seafood until the hubby got me into it a few years ago. But since we ordered chicken for appetizer, I didn't want to get a chicken entree. I ordered salmon, and it was seriously the best salmon I've ever had in my entire life. It was Teriakki style - incredible! I didn't finish the whole thing (since I'm watching my portions), so I will have the other half for lunch or dinner today. I've never tasted anything like this in my life, I can't get over it.
...and of course, my drink of choice.
My husband is not a big fan of cake (unless I bake it) so I wasn't even able to have a little cake brought out for him. He's such a party pooper. Who doesn't have cake on their birthday? We did have a great time, and it was fun to actually go out after work. Hopefully I can get the family together this weekend to celebrate some more. I'm hoping to bake some red velvet cupcakes this weekend (that's his favorite) and spend some time with him before we spend some time apart in the upcoming weeks (more on that later).
Have a beautiful + safe weekend everyone!
What are your plans?
