Birthday Cupcakes

Birthday Cupcakes

So I celebrated my birthday basically all of that week. We started with Brunch at the Ritz, family dinner on Wednesday, and a small celebration with my friends at my new apartment on Friday. I invited a ton of people, but somehow Fall and October in particular is crazy busy for people.

My friend Mick (hi Mick!) brought these amazing cupcakes from this great bakery in Los Gatos, my brother and his roomie came and made guacamole. I had a ton of cheese and snacks and totally forgot to take a group photo, or any photos outside of food (clearly my priorities were elsewhere!)

It was a great evening. How do you like to celebrate your birthday? Do you like to binge on sweets like me?

Love,

Fancy Friday, Gelato and a Sabertooth Tiger

This week for Fancy Friday we met at a fun Mexican restaurant in downtown Mountain View. I had yummy fish tacos.  It was a smaller group this week for dinner, but it was nice to be able to catch up with everyone. Apparently someone sent out a memo that purple is in, because everyone showed up wearing some form of purple.

We grabbed pearl tea and gelato after dinner.  I got lemon gelato and caramel pecan and it was delicious.

Yummy gelato.

Yummy gelato.

The best part of the evening occurred when we got in line for gelato. The young couple in front of us, well, one of them was dressed as a sabertooth tiger. People stopped and took pictures with the tiger, but it was pretty hilarious. It had a moving jaw, and eyes that lit up when they spoke.

What do you think of the costume? What is the most hilarious thing you have ever seen someone dressed up as? What did you do on Friday?
