She was pretty miserable and cried a lot. Her sleep and naps were constantly interrupted by her coughing and nose congestion. We definitely know that my neighbor's 2 yr old got her sick and we will be more careful next time. DH said that she is not allowed to play with him while he is sick. The funny thing is that even when he is sick, he acts like he isn't. I walked by the other day and his mom told me that he was sick again because they took him off his medication too early and it came back. He was running a 105 degree fever all day and was playing basketball all day in the back and videos games when he was inside. Nothing can bring this kid down. He is only 2 yrs old, but he is the size of a 4 yr old.
Grandma (my mom) was in town for a few days watching Broadway Shows and enjoying NYC with her girlfriends. She had not intended to visit, but decided at the last minute to prolong her stay and stay with us for a few days. We took Melody to the park so that she could get some fresh air and thought it would cheer her up. Look at that face! She has some tears in her left eye.She didn't have much expression on her face and spent the rest of the time crying. I have never seen her like this at all. Normally, she loves to run freely at the park and always has a big smile. We spent only 10 minutes there and quickly rushed her home when we realized that it wasn't working out.
Yesterday was the first day that she was back to normal. It's good to have my smiling, happy, little girl back.
When I found out my mom was going to be staying with us for 2 days, my brain went into over drive. I asked if she would mind babysitting 1 night so that DH and I could go out and have dinner. Not just any dinner, a dinner to celebrate our 7th Wedding Anniversary. I figured that we wouldn't have a nice dinner out this year because my friends, Jen and Jason, who babysat last year when we went to Mesa Grill, moved to New Jersey.
It was short notice, but I got reservations at Morimoto and was so excited to eat there. Let me say that it did not disappoint.Here I am enjoying a White Lily, their signature drink.I ordered the Omakase (tasting menu) and above is the Sashimi Salad.
DH does not eat raw seafood, so he ordered separately. Above is the special of the day entree, Saga Bop. The meat, Saga, was seared right at the table inside the hot stone pot along with rice and a raw egg on top. Everything gets cooked inside that stone pot. The meat was melt in your mouth tender.This was my main entree, Surf and Turf. Lobster with lemon creme fraiche and Wagyu Beef with sweet potatoes. I had 5 courses before the main entree was presented.This was my dessert that came with the tasting menu. A Yuzu Financier with Peach Sorbet. DH was so stuffed and had to skip dessert. He did have a tiny bite of mine. It was delicious and refreshing.And the best part of the evening? Meeting the Iron chef, Chef Morimoto!!! He was the reason I ordered the tasting menu. The waitress had told me that he was working at the restaurant that night and he chose the menu that night for the Omakase. It was fantastic. I got to sample so many dishes, but in small portions. I did not leave there feeling stuffed, but completely full and satisfied.This wall was behind the toilet in the ladies room. Pretty cool!
And this was on the wall next to the toilet. I did not try any of the functions. Electronic toilets has always freaked me out. In fact, the lid started moving up and down when I was snapping this photo and it startled me.
Even though we celebrated last week, today is actual day of our anniversary. Happy Anniversary, Steve!
I will be back soon with some knitting content.
