The lover and I went out to the Blue Door for supper. We started with wine (duh) and I turned 12. I am clearly not emotionally ageing, just physically.
I wanted to go to the Blue Door specifically for their spicy peanut tofu dish. It was great, but they used angel hair pasta instead of soba noodles, which I didn't love.
Kaylee got the edamame risotto, which she highly recommends.
For dessert I demanded that we order the chocolate brownie. I'm glad we did, because I am unable to pleasure Kaylee the way that brownie did. It was phenomenal, stop whatever you're doing right now and go eat that brownie. While you're at it, order me two.
Once we recovered from the brownie, we headed to the Delta for drinks with friends, and then a sleepover. Kaylee has a horseshoe up her butt, because she won a free stay at the newly renovated Delta, and being the angel that she is, decided to spend it on my birthday.
While we were checking in, the consierge saw that I had a 1.5L bottle of champagne in my bag (classy) and called it my "fun bag." I told him it was my birthday, and that I'm not a raging alcoholic, and he upgraded our room! Such a sweetheart. Once we got to our room, we found a birthday cheesecake waiting for us. The Delta's the best!
After a late night of discussing feminist theory, we snuggled in our king size bed until the last possible minute, before waking up for presents and a balanced breakfast of cookies.
We had friends join us at the hotel in the morning, and enjoyed mimosas in bed. Which Kardashian do I have to marry so this can become a weekly occurrence?
After getting day drunk on an empty stomach, we headed to Cora's for breakfast. I had an overload of sugar, so I opted for fresh fruit on a crepe, no maple syrup or cream or chocolate.
After brunch, we headed back to our place with a few friends, ate cookies and played video games (again, how old am I?!).
My grandmother is moving out of the house my dad grew up in, and she's been going through all of her belongings. She found a few mismatched teacups and saucers that she received at her wedding shower in '51, and gave them to me for my birthday! I am seriously the luckiest girl in the world!
So of course we played fancy and had tea and cake. Well, I had three pieces of cake.
Thank you to everyone who made my birthday so special!
