Celebrating Forty!

As you know I turned 40 in January, what I didn’t share was how we celebrated. Of course, we did it in style and it was a lot of fun.

The day started off with a family outing to Breakfast Republic and it was outstanding! The food, the service and the company made it a very special meal. First the waiter overheard we were celebrating a birthday, so he brought us a warm coffee cake on a plate of “Happy Birthday” in raspberry and maple syrup. Everyone at the table loved that it saved us from squirmy Cecito complaining about having to sit still for the food to arrive. When our food arrived it only got better, it was exactly what I wanted. Flight of pancakes, unique eggs benedict and a skillet of eggs crammed with everything yummy.

We came home and Daddy made me a delicious chocolate cake! That was pretty darn special, too.

Then, we had a fun night out with friends at Draft Republic. Old roommates, single life friends, before kids friends, mom friends, neighbors and an old co-worker were in the mix. I felt very loved and special, which is exactly what I am looking for on my birthday. Just take a look at the pictures, can’t you feel the fun!?

Can’t forget Ashley, our extra special babysitter for the evening. LL made her read about 8 books and for sure thought she was the one in charge. Thank you Ashley, you made the night happen for both of us. Plus, a special thank you to the hubs, he was our chauffeur for the evening. All of us from the North Park area and our overnight LA guests are ever-so-grateful. Muah!
