Birthday Pancakes a day late...

What's better than birthday pancakes on your birthday? Birthday pancakes the day after your birthday; it's like celebrating your birthday two days in a row! Well, that's how I justified the fact that I was a day late surprising Michael with his birthday pancakes.We'll also forget the fact that some of them were a little burnt. In the past 3 years, I've always made Michael a birthday cake on his birthday, but this year, thanks to Pinterest, I decided to switch things up and make him birthday pancakes. :) 

Maybe it's the little girl in me, but I never want birthdays to become "another day" as you get older. Because of this, I love making my friends and families birthdays a special day. I mean, a person's birthday only happens once a year! I was so excited to celebrate Michael's birthday in Chicago. We went out to the most amazing, romantic place for dinner, called Geja's Cafe in Lincoln Park. It's a fondue place, with not only an amazing menu but a great atmosphere. It was a little pricey, but if you have a special occasion, I highly recommend this place! 

Until next year :) Happy Birthday Michael!

I'm a sucker for flowers, so we made a pit stop at the Lincoln Park Conservatory before dinner :)

The most amazing food!
Isn't this the cutest place ever?
