It seems like it has been a really long time since I posted! Things are crazy right now (16 more days of school until graduation!) and I’m trying to get through this last push until summer. Last week I turned 18 which was pretty exciting :) On my birthday, I came downstairs and saw a little box from my mom. In it was this adorable little bird necklace! I have been wanting this necklace for close to a year and was so suprised when I saw it because I didn’t know anyone knew I wanted it! But apparently I shared the necklace on this Christmas post with gift ideas (I’ve now gotten three things off of that list…I didn’t intend it as hints to my family but it certainly worked out!). My mom took me out to breakfast at Starbucks and then drove me to school.
When I got home from school, I saw these flowers from my Aunt. They were really pretty and the vase was super cute.
My youngest sister wanted us to take a picture together because the two of us were wearing matching dresses :)
For dinner, I requested that we go out to eat at the Cheesecake Factory. I’d never been before, but it sounded like it’d be really good and it totally was!
For dinner, my sister and I split a mac and cheese hamburger and ohmygosh it was good! It’s a hamburger topped with fried mac and cheese. I totally want to make them at home! Of course we had to order dessert and the cheesecake was the best I’ve ever had. We ordered three different kinds.
The Original: My sister and I teased our mom for wanting the original because it’s not as exciting as their other varieties, but it was seriously tasty. The filling was perfectly creamy and the “sour cream” top layer gave it a nice tang.
Tuxedo: This was a chocolate cheesecake layer topped by a vanilla layer topped by ganache. It was really good and looked super pretty!
Chocolate Raspberry Truffle: Wow. Smooth chocolate cheesecake with pieces of raspberry and raspberry flavoring mixed in. Absolutely incredible.
So which was my favorite? It’s hard to choose but I would have to say the Chocolate Raspberry followed by the Original and then the Tuxedo. I would have to say that the Cheesecake Factory is definitely my new favorite restaurant!
There’s all of us at dinner :)
