Guess what? I turned 26 yesterday lol.
My thoughts about turning 26?
don't feel any older. I never FEEL any older on a birthday, but this
was the first year that I actually felt that my age denoted getting
older. I mean, 26, that's on the way to 30. Unmistakeably an adult, no
longer "early 20s."
What did I do?
The special highlight of my birthday was a
trip to The Melting Pot, a fondue restaurant. I know, how fancy? lol
I'll admit, in the beginning the hubby and I were a little skeptical.
The prices were a little high, we'd never eaten fondue out, and... we
were going to have to make our food OURSELVES. Our initial fears were
unwarranted and we had a GREAT time. The food was delicious, and the
cooking mechanism was really simple... throw your meat on a fondue
scure, let it sit in the broth for 2 minutes, and wala... wonderfully
cooked, shrimp, sausage and steak, with delicious dipping sauces. And of
course the desert course was even better. Flambeed chocolate with
marshmallow and oreo cookies on top. For dipping? Strawberries,
cheesecake, rice krispy treats, pound cake, red velvet cake,
marshmallows AND bananas! I wanted to do something that was more of an
experience this year, not just your average trip to dinner, and I was
very satisfied. Thanks to my wonderful hubby for the treat!
