In my family, birthday's are a multiple day celebration. My mom and I usually send some time together and then we have a small party. This year I was not really up for a party...I am a bit traumatized by turning 36...so the birthday festivities were toned down a bit this year...but still fun nonetheless...
Such an incredible dinner at Quartino...Italian tapas...caprese platter, pizza with baby spinach, eggplant parmigiana and broccoli rabe with garlic...yum!!
Birthday dessert...so freakin delicious...freshly made profiteroles with chocolate dipping...we finished them off in about 5 seconds...
We stayed downtown at the Allegro for the evening. It was so nice to be able to sleep soundly...not worrying about which little boy is going to wander into my room and join me in bed...I could get up when I wanted too, not when someone started screaming "mom"!!
After a leisurely and delicious brunch at Eleven Diner with mom and dad...spinach and onion fritatta...I headed home to enjoy thew afternoon with my boys!
Monday was my actual birthday, so there was more fun! After a great birthday burrito for lunch with my dad, the rest of the workday and Jack's t-ball game, I came home to a cookie cake celebration with the boys!
Even though I am terrified about being 36...it is just too close to 40...I have a feeling this is going to be a great year!!
