I have officially left behind the teenage years. 20 years old and still feeling pretty much the same.
I was up early because I was excited for my birthday! I asked for bagels for breakfast and my dad was back at 7:30 with them, so I got up.
Coffee to drink. I had two cups because I was a little sleepy from my not-so-great night’s sleep.
I opened my birthday present in the morning, and got some fun stuff, including this awesome bean cookbook:
We headed to the movies for an early showing of Oz: The Great and Powerful. I liked the movie (I am a HUGE Wizard of Oz fan) but I wish they had marketed it differently! I expected a sort of mystical, creepy, dark film and it was actually quite comedic and goofy. A different kind of movie, but still good.
After the movie we headed to Whole Foods for lunch! I got a nice box from the hot bar:
We walked around the lake to the other side where there are some open fields and played frisbee for a little while. I am very bad at frisbee, but I am good at running, so I’d have Allen throw the frisbee really far and I’d run after it. Then I would throw the frisbee back and Allen would walk the twenty feet to where it landed…
Such a good sport:
Another photo shoot after I was all cleaned up:
For dinner, we went to my favorite restaurant, La Bonne Bouchée. They have great food, and even better dessert.
Both of my grandmothers met us over there and we dined on yummy French foods, including some of the best rolls ever:
My meal came with a cup of soup so I ordered the soup of the day, which was a black bean soup:
Although the food was delicious as always, our service was not that great tonight! Our waitress didn’t seems to know much about the specials or what they had left. Four of us ordered the same cake and they only had one slice left, but she didn’t tell us until after she took our order and brought the desserts. That part was disappointing.
I got some gifts from my grandmothers, including a bunch of cookbooks! My cookbook collection grows with ever holiday. Here’s the new entries:
Tonight we are watching basketball and relaxing. I may dig into these macaroons we picked up at La Bonne Bouchée…
