May 23rd marked my 26th birthday. It worked out that it was also the date of Chris’s swearing in. Double celebrations! I wish I had pictures to share, but my camera is still out of order. I hope to get that fixed this weekend. Pictures aside, let’s just say that there was specialty cannoli (chocolate chip cookie dough for me and pistachio for Chris), a big celebratory Italian dinner, red wine for all, and a mint chocolate chip Cold Stone ice cream cake. Huzzah!
Tonight, my parents are coming to take Chris and I out for dinner. More cake!!! It’s also nearing 80 degrees (finally!), so we are planning to eat outside tonight. I cannot wait. Also, because I am 26 going on 5, I’m celebrating my birthday (again) with friends on Saturday. I’m currently looking for restaurant suggestions on the Upper East Side – cheap and fun, please! – for us to check out before heading to the bar that’s hosting my party. My party, where my friend has informed me there will be more cake. Oh my. But yum!
I promised to stop rambling and eating cake after this week and go back to having a normal healthy eating blog. I mean, now that it’s nice out, I can get serious about training for a Rugged Maniac (and losing the extra frosting weight)!
Can you tell I just love birthdays? Happy birthday to me!
