Weekend recap (date night)

Happy Monday!

Friday was MT’s birthday, so we celebrated by having a date night…without kids!

We went to a local restaurant called Portofino’s for dinner.  It has quickly become a favorite of ours.

portofino's salmon salad

MT loves the pizza, and I always order the salmon salad.  Truth be told, I really order it for the house salad dressing.  It is so good that I could probably drink it.  Apparently, the recipe is a well-guarded secret that only family members are allowed to know.  I’ve tried to replicate it at home several times, but I’ve never had any success.  Maybe I need to start sucking up to the restaurant owners?

It was a really beautiful breezy evening, so we got to comfortably sit outside and enjoy it (with some wine of course).

We also did some shopping, and my sister and I met up with an old friend/neighbor on Sunday morning.  It was so much fun to catch up with her (hi, Jenna!), but we completely forgot to take any pictures.  What kind of blogger am I?


I also got to eat salmon a record three times in a row over the weekend- which, as you know, is pretty major in my world.  It’s the little things…

I hope that you had a great weekend!
