Last night, Mr. Wonderful and I celebrated two births, one being one of my best girlfriends, Meagan’s birth(day), and the birth of her latest #3 bouncing baby boy, Ardon.
She just gave birth to Ardon less than a week ago, seriously, 6 days prior, and already, she was game to meet up with us! We decided TGIFriday’s unique Front Row location in downtown Phoenix (attached to the Diamondbacks Ballpark) would be middle point of where we both live, PLUS, they just introduced their new menu – handcrafted from the kitchen and clean food labels! This means, fresh, guilt-free food, things you would cook in your kitchen, only you don’t have to clean up the mess.
Phoenicians, Front Row is every day from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. if you were wondering, not just during Diamondbacks ball games.
I had been going on and on about TGIFriday’s new menu I had tasted in Dallas for the blogging kick off event and Meagan was dying to give it a try. Appetizers have clean labels, main plates feature handcrafted items like steak and lobster, really my mouth has been watering since I left Texas.
Really, their new menu is quite impressive.
Yes, bring your friends. Especially your cute ones who just had a third baby a week ago.
Time to open prezzies, bestie.
The pillow was a nursery Ardon gift/relax your back while nursing at 3 a.m. pillow I made. She was doing a Hungry Caterpillar theme and when I found this fabric at SAS Fabrics, I had to buy it and make something for little Ardon’s nursery. The case is also removable, and I made the pillow including stuffing it, OK that’s enough bragging.
Meagan loves butterflies, kinda like how I love bunnies. She’s so cute I can hardly stand it.
She’s my kindred spirit and has been for so many, many years.
Time to order. Strawberry Passion Tea for me.
Appetizers! Everyone went nuts over the fried green beans, yummm! Potato skins of course, hot wings, meatballs,…
Bacon mac and cheese ball bites. Ah-maze-ing. And the Thai Pork Soft Tacos I couldn’t wait to put in my mouth again. GET IN MY BELLY!
We asked for the windows to go up. We also enjoyed the ballpark view.
Onto dinner. Salmon and lobster for Mr. Wonderful.
Steak for me – of course, Nor Cal girls eat steak! And we like ’em medium rare! I ordered extra lobster on the side too!
New York Cheddar & Bacon Burger for the birth (literally) day girl. See what I did there?
Sirloin for Andrew. He was checking that his steak was perfect. Andrew also said he was very impressed and even tried to be critical of the new menu only to find he absolutely loved everything he tried (and we ordered a TON of food). He was a huge fan!
For those of you who are obsessed with the Jack Daniel’s meat, here you go. It’s still there!
You gotta have dessert, the Oreo Madness is just the perfect birthday cake, isn’t it?
It was getting late. The sun said goodnight and lights were pointed on the grass to make it grow, even during the day time! Crazy right?
Happy birthday MK and Ardon! Ardon, your first outing was with Auntie Di! And thanks Aunt Julie for watching the two other little ones so we could do another DD.
Food, friends, and fellowship at Front Row – just how I like it. Have a sweet weekend everyone, TGIF!
Diana Elizabeth had only coffee that morning and a small cherry scone – she was waiting for later that night to eat everything in sight!
