Reaching a Milestone

Last week was my birthday. My 20's are now officially over. I am not sure where the time has gone, but it has been fun.

I had a 3 day celebration full of eating. On Thursday, I went to Lure for a girl's night out, where I met some new people that I think will become good friends.

On Friday, my actual birthday, DH took me to Babbo. It was a fantastic meal! We ordered the Pasta Tasting Menu that consists of 5 pasta dishes and 3 desserts. I can't even describe the taste of fresh pasta. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. We were both so full, we almost couldn't finish the last dessert. Then they gave us complimentary mini cookies. I managed a bite of each.

Saturday, last night, my friends took me out to Blue Water Grill in Union Square. Delicious seafood! Then we tried to go bowling at Bowlmor Lanes, but it was a 2 hour wait since DH forgot to make reservations. So, we decided to try something we all had never done before. Karaoke! We had a fabulous time singing the night away. Even the non singers participated in a few songs. I was quite surprised.

The roses above was a gift from my friend, Karen. And now for pictures of my birthday haul.DH bought me knitting fiction books! I was so surprised. I don't even know how he found out about these books. It was so thoughtful of him. I have always wanted to read knitting fiction books, but never got around to it or bought any, but I know that I have never told DH about it. He even got me the companion knitting pattern books to go with the Debbie Macomber books, so I can knit the patterns from the stories. Also, hidden between the pages of the Knit Picks catalog was a gift certificate for me to buy yarn! Woohoo!
The Malabrigo (color is StoneChat) and Noro Blossom is from a friend that also knits. She also bought me Knitting Over the Edge. I own Knitting On the Edge and really wanted to the new ones.
A jewelry box from a friend that I have known since middle school.
Neuhaus Praline Chocolates and a Banana Republic Gift Card from my friend and her husband. The Belgium chocolate is delicious. And a Ann Taylor Gift Card from a friend that is also short and Ann Taylor Loft makes clothes for us short people.
