Another Birthday Celebration and a Weekly Recap!

After my half marathon on Sunday, I rushed home to get some rest because we had a 6:00pm dinner date with my daughter to celebrate her birthday. She loves steak and we headed over to one of her favorite restaurants, North Woods Inn, to have dinner.  The restaurant is really dark inside so it's kind of different to me plus it's also hard to take good pictures of your food for your blog due to poor lighting!
Other than their great steaks, they are known for their great cabbage salad, green salad and cheese bread. I always get suckered into eating all of the salads and bread because not only are they delicious but they are unlimited!! 
The food was delicious and we had a great time. My husband and I split the 16oz rib eye steak and they were nice enough to split everything onto two plates for us for a $6.95 fee.  The steak plate was a little pricey ($32.95) but we don't do it often ...only for her birthday. Most of our favorite restaurants are little hole in wall places that have the best food for great prices. 
 She loved all of her presents and I think she had a pretty fabulous birthday according to Instagram and her Facebook!
 I think her favorite gift was her new Juicy Couture handbag. She was definitely surprised!

Here is a Recap of My Week:
TuesdayRan 8.5 on the Treadmill
Wednesday: REST 
ThursdayRan 10.0 on the Treadmill
SundayOC Half Marathon (13.31 Miles according to my Garmin)
This past week was my highest mileage week of 2012 (so far) and hopefully my monthly mileage will top April which was 74 miles.  I am excited and nervous all at the same time. I am taking it easy for the next few days and Thursday is supposed to be my last day of physical therapy. I am a little sore from my half marathon but it's a good sore.  It's the kind of sore that I am used to after a good run. I think I kind of like this pain! I have missed it!

This weekend is Mother's Day!  What are your plans? I know that I will be spending time with my mom and my grandma but I haven't made any official plans yet!
