I definitely had a HAPPY birthday this 2011.
It doesn’t take much to make me happy.
Simple things make me smile.
This year, it was as simple as having dinner with friends at home, having lunch out with friends, take-out food with family, an afternoon with the kids, a meal with siblings, and a dinner date with my husband. Of course, it all din’t happen on my birthday, these were spread out throughout the week.
First off, we had an intimate dinner at home with friends for the September celebrants. I cooked Baked Garlic Chicken and Artichoke Dip served with multigrain chips. Had california maki from Cold Storage. Friends cooked baked spaghetti and bought DQ Oreo ice cream cake!
Then early lunch with friends…
Then late lunch at home with family…but of course, I didn’t eat anymore…well, I ate dessert. I never skip dessert! 🙂 I’ve been wanting to try Amber food since I’ve heard good things about it, so we had that for lunch. (Tasted their food, wasn’t that great for me.)
The entire afternoon was spent with the kids. Just playing and having fun. Oh, let’s not forget, the eating part too! We had an afternoon snack…cake, pancit, and pichi-pichi! I know you’re thinking, “eat again!?!”. I’ll use my birthday pass here 🙂
Then off to dinner at Gaudi with Rick as I’ve been craving for their steak for quite some time. Just haven’t had the chance to go, so now, we made time.
After dinner, we had a short trip to Fully Booked to walk off our heavy stomachs. We also got some coffee to help.
But then, the night wasn’t over…or shall I say, the eating wasn’t over! As we were parking our car at home, my cousin-in-law arrived with some goodies! yehay!!!
After a couple of days, my siblings wanted to celebrate too…so we decided to try out Bonchon Chicken. Too bad I wasn’t able to take pictures of that.
Overall, this birthday celebration of mine was major eating! Let me rephrase that….major eating and NO exercising for an entire week! 😛 But I’m not complaining…I thank God for all the blessings 🙂
Now it’s double time for me to lose all those extra calories I took in for an entire week.
Wish me luck 🙂
Happy Birthday to all the September celebrants 🙂
