Birthday Dinner ♥

We went to this Greek place for my birthday. (34!) It was good and I discovered I love mousaka. I loved the mural on the staircase wall so I had to snap a pic. E is so used to the requisite blog photo that he knows to wait a second before digging in so I can snap a pic. the appetizers were delicious. I didn't count points yesterday but I didn't even feel like eating rice, fries or bread. I had to LOL at the raw potato garnish animals on our plates. We'll definitely be eating here again.


  1. Happy Birthday, Mona.
    I cought this post 48 seconds after you post it...lol
    My hubby also learned the lesson. He'll ask me to take pictures for any event that we do as a family to make sure that I have enough to post on my FB or blog.
    Lovely family you got there, mashallah :)

  2. Happy birthday! The food looks so good, I love the giraffe and fish! So cute! :D
