As some of you lovely readers of either my blog or my
blogger bestie’s blog (Ask Away) know, that Ellen and I met this past weekend
for a Christmas gift and cookie exchange. 
I’m so excited because we’ve already started talking about our next
meetup and this time we are planning on having a sleepover so stay tuned on
where we are going for that!
Back to this past weekend’s meetup.  We decided to go to Florence Italian Grille
in Breinigsville, PA.  Not only were the
food and drinks delicious, the waitresses were amazing.  We actually had two waitresses and both were
great.  Sophia and Tammy were their names
so if you ever go to this particular restaurant ask for either of them.  Sophia is extremely knowledgeable on everything
the restaurant has to offer and she was such a breath of fresh air from the
usual type of waitress you get a restaurant. 
She actually seemed to be enjoying her job which in the food business is
tough.  Tammy was great too because she
was great at balancing when to come and ask us how we were doing and when to
get our checks.  You know how some
waiters/waitresses are overbearing and they seem to be rushing you to
leave?  That was definitely not the case.

Ok, so now that I told you about the great service both of
us received let’s talk about the food and drinks!  I decided to start out with the Jamaican
Cowboy which was extremely sweet but still delicious, tasted just like fruit
punch.  I also decided on the Midnight
Espresso Margarita which was really good if you’re a coffee and Kahlua person.  Now if there are certain fruits that aren’t
in season they won’t be able to make that drink which may be a bummer for some
people but I think it’s actually pretty awesome because it means they’re fresh
and not frozen fruits.  Also, their wild
salmon is actually caught and brought to the restaurant which is pretty
awesome.  As an appetizer I got mozzarella
sticks which were good, they were ginormous. 
As for our entrees, Ellen and I actually said it must be made in house
because it wasn’t brought to us right away. 
Usually when food is brought to you within a few minutes it means that
they use frozen food and we actually had to wait for ours.  It tasted so delicious!  I got Fettucine Alfredo with Shrimp instead
of Chicken.  It was one of the best
Fettucine Alfredo’s I’ve tasted.  All in
all it was a great experience and no I was not asked to write this review nor
did I get compensated this was all on my own.

Let’s talk about what Ellen got me for Christmas.  I was so excited because we did a cookie
exchange and she made Grinch Cookies which were uploaded onto her blog a few
days before our meetup.  I made her my
peppermint brownies (recipe will be up on Friday).  She also got me this book that she has been
telling me to read for quite some time “The Single Girl’s Manifesta.”  I’ve already read a little bit of it and I
must say it has some valid points.  A lot
of people are so scared to be alone but we are born alone and die alone, what
are we so afraid of?  Moving on to my
favorite part of this present, she got me a camera lens travel mug.  How adorable is it?!  At first when I opened it I wanted to yell at
her because I actually thought she got me a lens since I’ve been wanting a new
one but then I saw the picture with the froth coming out of the top and was
amazed.  Seriously this is the greatest
Christmas present I’ve gotten!  I think
people think I’m weird carrying around a lens but then when they see me open it
and drink it, either I get the face of “Aha, it’s for coffee” or I get the face
of “oh my gosh she ruined the lens to drink out of it?!”  It’s funny and I can’t wait to see more
people make faces at me.

I had so much fun as usual and I can’t wait to see Ellen
again in February if we aren’t snowed in, so everyone keep your fingers crossed
for us!  Do any of you fellow bloggers
have blogger besties that became real life besties?  I always love hearing stories of how y’all
met since my blogger bestie and I are officially soul mates!
Also, stay tuned for my OOTD post for this meetup as well, I’ll give y’all the details of my outfit.
