My Lunar New Years Birthday
Next stop on the February Awesomeness Train: My Birthday. This past weekend I celebrated my birthday threefold with a Lunar New Years celebration, game night, and Superbowl (which my team was playing in!).
For the Saturday birthday party, we catered from Silk, Annie made hến xúc (Vietnamese clam dish), and we even decorated! There was lots of game playing (hooray!) and, in the spirit of the New Years, gambling. They surprised me with a Steelers themed coffee & cookie dough ice cream cake. All the best things combined together!
The next day we had brunch at Cafe du Berry and I had a deelish Salmon Eggs Benedict along with their tasty French Toast. Later I watched the Superbowl… the Steelers didn’t win, but it was definitely a birthday treat to watch them play.
And, for my sanity and my energy level (getting old!), interspersed throughout the weekend was a lot of chill out time in front of the new wood stove.
Definitely a Good Birthday.
