I woke up wondering what I wanted for my birthday lunch to be and landed on Kim’s Teahouse. We ate at home in our pjs and played with Emmy.
Soon after Scruffy showed up with his lunch and my second present … scratch offs and blueberry beer. Yum! He ate his lunch while staring at Emmy because she is so adorable.
Then he went with me to return things at postmark and DSW. We stopped by Starbucks since I get a free drink on my birthday and they were having half off fraps. We went back home and lounged around before heading over to Gordon’s. This was also the time Scruffy held Emmy for the first time ever. I loved seeing him interact with her.
Gordon decided to throw Mother’s day at his house – potluck style. Even after stuffing our faces we ended up with a lot of leftovers.
Mabel works at Tea Bar and knew it was my birthday and made me a milk tea with tapioca. It was extremely sweet but delicious. I tend to dislike big tapioca balls in my drink but these were the perfect consistency.
Red envelopes are a usual present in our family. #rich #justkidding
June had just flown back from China and so I got a mix of birthday present and souviner. If you’ve never tried the Calbee Jagabee Sweet Potato Sticks … go getcha some. Sadly I’ve only been able to find it in Hong Kong. Anyone live in Hong Kong that wants to send some my way? I’ll be your best friend.
The next morning, Mother’s Day, the siblings and I made breakfast for the family. June helped since we video chatted PoPo and Kathy overseas to see the baby. Afterward, I took a long nap.
Then woke up in time to relax with some telly, shower, and get ready to meet Scruffy and Jamie at Bombay Grill. I cannot get enough.
I am extremely proud of myself for this meal prep because it was so gorgeously plated and because I’m using the glassware Scruffy got me for my birthday. Guys, this is such a simple meal to make but so freaking good.
Today at work Erin hands me a bag. A birthday gift! No one at work really knows my birthday so it was sweet that she remembered and got me something!
I’ve received so many masks this birthday that I’ll be maskin’ all day erry’day. I cannot wait to try them all out!
