go shorty it's your birthday...

Yesterday was my good friend Michelles' birthday so of course I had to help her celebrate. Last year we were in disneyland during this time of year, and since there was no way to compete with that I decided to keep it simple. I took her on a progressive dinner to some of Moses Lake's hot spots.
Our first stop was Denny's for appetizers and drinks.

Every birthday girl should have a crown and boa.

even Qiana joined in the fun, although she wasn't feeling as perky as usual.


Our next stop was Inca for our main dish of Nachos. There nachos are sto delicious there. Piled high was ground beef, shredded beef, chicken, beans, and lots of cheese!


wow....that was A LOT of nachos.

Even Qiana got tuckered out.


little sidenote: funny story, so last night while we were dining at Inca we saw the skinny homeless walking guy (a moses lake icon) eating at a table near by. Emily wanted to get a picture of him for a future blog so we tried a covert op to get a picture....well apparently skinny homeless walking guy has special powers and totally caught us trying to take a picture and yells out "no". seriously the most awkward moment ever. I tried to quickly recover and took the camera from michelle and pointed it at them, like we were taking pictures of everyone at the table, and quickly erased his picture just in case he confronted us. it was so awful.
anyway, as is tradition at Inca I got the staff to sing happy birthday to Michelle...really anything for free food right?


After Inca we headed to Shari's for dessert. Then home to watch American idol (go danny!)


What fun night! Now for a quick list...


TOP 5 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT MICHELLE:

5. She is a Westlife super fan. Seriously if they have a version of a song she has it. She also is the queen of random rap remix's and always knows the lyrics. One of the best people to have in the car with you on trips.


4.She has the best smile. It's so contagious, but in a good way.


3. She is down for anything. Roadtrips. acting silly. Taking random pictures.




2. She is always willing to help. She has an amazing work ethic and if she signs up to do something she pulls through.


1. If she's not funny then why does my face hurt...

Like kids, Michelle says the darndest things that then become part of our vernacular.
"just do what feels good"
"you're silly"
"everything's better in three's"
"....(question mark)"
"it must be my portuganity"

Nice job photographing the food. Those nachos look like a dish for "serious inquiries only". Still, they would be no match for me.
