Nothing feels better than laughing until your abs are sore!
During last night’s performance by Sinbad, my family and I did just that.
Since Emeril’s is a pretty pricey restaurant, my family and I ate dinner before meeting there and just ordered dessert (which is the best part of the meal anyway, right?).
The entire evening was organized by my mom, sister and I as a birthday present for my dad, so of course we had to have the restaurant staff sing happy birthday to the big guy!
He was more than a little surprised.
Ryan and my dad both ordered appetizers, and my mom, sister and I had a few bites and also enjoyed some freshly baked corn and French bread before ordering our desserts.
For dessert we selected the strawberry shortcake and two slices of the banana cream pie, since Ryan and I loved it so much the last time we visited Emeril’s back in May.
Check out those chocolate shavings!
I think it’s safe to say that between the five of us, we demolished these desserts!
Though I loved the banana cream pie in the past, strawberry shortcake took the cake (pun! ) for me. I’m a sucker for cold, creamy strawberry gelato, fluffy puff pastry and a plethora of whipped cream. Sign me up!
Once dessert was devoured, we walked to Hard Rock Live to head inside and laugh our little booties off all evening.
We were really lucky to have amazing seats in the second row, so we actually made eye contact with Sinbad and were able to see his expressions and mannerisms.
He had the whole crowd cracking up as he talked about the insanity of amusement parks, the differences between men and women and his upbringing.
Stand up comedy is a wonderful way to sit back, relax and laugh until you cry! What an awesome night!
My sister spent the night with us last night, so once she wakes up this morning we have plans to head to church after breakfast.
Also on the agenda:
- Dog park
- Outlet mall (?)
- Selecting the tuxes or suits Ryan and his groomsman will wear for our wedding
- Registering at Bed Bath and Beyond (?)
Time to get crackin’ in the kitchen! Lata!
