My salad was a Caprese Salad and Mike ordered a Caesar Salad not pictured
Mike ordered Lobster Ravioli for his main dish.
I ordered crab cakes.
The food was absolutely incredible!! The portions were huge! I couldn’t even finish my entire dinner. We really enjoyed our meals so much! Everything was cooked perfectly. It was a great birthday dinner for Mike. We finished up our meal with a dessert.
Overall, our experience was a great one! The Group deal gave us SO much food! We would totally buy the Groupon again and do this deal. It was too great to pass up. I’m really glad we enjoyed ourselves.
On Saturday, Mike and I ran errands the entire afternoon and then relaxed at home. I wasn’t feeling that great so I wanted to just spend time at home. We decided to meet up with Courtney and Ian though for dinner in Peddler’s Village. We decided to try the Buttonwood Grill .
Mike and I shared an appetizer.
Butternut Squash Hummus
The hummus was incredible! We both really liked it. My dinner on the other hand was awful. I left the majority of it on the plate. Ick.
Black Bean, Feta, and Quinoa Burger
The burger completely fell apart and had a flavor that I really didn’t like it. I would never order it again. I’d be willing to go back and try something else though. The appetizer and the fries were good. Everyone else enjoyed their meal except for me. That’s okay though.
On Sunday, it was Mike’s birthday! He is obsessed with Oreo cookies so I decided to make it an Oreo themed birthday! We started off the morning with this coffee that I found at HomeGoods.
Cookies & Cream Coffee!
Birthday Cake Pancake Mix
Birthday cake pancakes with scrambled eggs
I spent the afternoon making Oreo Cookie Truffles for the Birthday boy!

Then Mike’s family came over and we watched our wedding video together and then went out to dinner. When we came home, we had the Oreo cake that I designed with a local bakery for Mike. It even had the oreo filling flavoring baked into the frosting and cake! They did a good job.
Mike’s Oreo Birthday Cake!
I think Mike had a great birthday and I really enjoyed celebrating our first married birthday together! Woo hoo! What is your favorite type of cookie?
Alright, I’m off to get some work done. Have a great Tuesday!
