We happened to have a few birthdays to celebrate within the last month; mine, Debbie's and Jody's.  Of course this is a great excuse to go out for a girl's dinner.  We again chose Wild Fox because for one, it's centrally located to all of us, two, the food is good and three the atmosphere is great.  They have indoor seating and outdoor patio seating. It was too cold to eat outside last night so we stayed indoors.

Why not start by telling you about dessert.  This was just one of the desserts we shared.  A bundt, brown sugar mini cake.  It's my new favorite.  I took one bite and instantly fell in love with all it's gooey, buttery, brown sugary loveliness.  Everything in moderation, right?

It was also half price wine night!  We had no idea and definitely took advantage of this offer.  We ordered one bottle of  the Beringer cab to share, which was just perfect.

We decided not to order any appetizers and moved straight to the entrees.
I ordered the Thai Coconut Chicken Curry.  I think I had this last time, but wanted it again.

The curry sauce was quite spicy, just how I like it.  I ate most of the chicken and curry portion but only half of the rice.

Lately I've totally been into all these sweet tea flavored vodkas and noticed they had Peach Sweet Tea on their cocktail menu, so I had to try it out.  Really liked it.  Also love that it's served in a mason jar.

Deb and Kellie.

A couple of the girls had one of the specials for the night, the Petrale Sole served on a bed of wilted spinach and rice which was really tasty.

Our other dessert was the apple crisp topped with huckleberry ice cream.
I liked it but much preferred the bundt cake, probably because the bundt cake was a lot more sweet and I DO have a sweet tooth.

Kellie and Devi.

Present from Jody.  I love the hammered look in jewelry that I've been seeing a lot of lately.

Silpada earrings from Kellie.

Jody showed us her diamond encrusted hoops she got from her hubby as a B-day gift.  Loved them!

Another fun night at Wild Fox.  I don't think we'll ever get tired of that place.


I didn't drink very much last night but for some reason my stomach was turning a bit this morning and I felt like I needed to eat something right away.  Maybe it was all that sugar in the dessert.
A nice hot cup of coffee topped with milk and cinnamon sounded good to me.

And my favorite cereal.  Have you ever tried this?  It has no added sugar but it's sweet enough for me to like.  Plus it has a ton of fiber and protein and made with whole grains.

I usually eat it dry, accompanied with my coffee. 
It definitely hit the spot.

Happy Tuesday!

Wait a minute you have fresh milk at your finger tips and you eat your cereal dry- I kinda think this is funny.

All those meals look so good- but what I want is some of that vodka drink in the mason jar.

Katie, I try to avoid being photographed at all costs!

Miss 24 @ Heart, Silpada is the best and it's even better when your good friend sells it:)

Ren, that sweet tea was to die for! If you haven't tried one yet, I highly recommend it.
