Happy Birthday Mom!

Yesterday was my mom Marinette’s birthday.  We decided to have dinner the night before so Justin and I were able to celebrate with her since we headed to the bay area the morning of her birthday.  We had dinner at Fogo de Chao in downtown.  The restaurant is a traditional Brazilian steakhouse, which is basically an all-you-can-eat meat fest!

The food was delicious!  My favorite meats were the filet mignon and picanha (top sirloin), their house speciality.  And I LOVED the pão de queijo (cheese bread), which is my sister’s favorite in any Brazilian steakhouse.  They even brought out a complimentary cake for my mom.  There are lots of tables in close proximity so it can feel a bit tight.  Overall, it was a great dining experience.  A day later, I was still full!

I was born two days later from my mom’s 26th birthday so I consider myself her best birthday gift.  Here’s the message I sent her after midnight on her actual birthday this year:

I know, I’m such a sweet daughter.  Haha!

Enjoy Ginet
