Fish! I love fish. For my birthday, Ron organized a suprise dinner at a local seafood restaurant. Amazing. The food was great and the company was great. It was perfect and I have leftovers!
Happy birthday to me! Twenty-eight on the 28th. Freaky. And I had a massive ice cream cake to celebrate, thanks to Groupon. Ron made me dinner, and picked out my cake, along with some surprise sunflowers, but other than that, I didn’t really do anything for my birthday. I had to work today, but I’m off Friday and since Monday’s a holiday, I’ll have a nice long weekend to celebrate. Really I’m just excited to have a little break from work. Everyone loves a mini-vacation.
My cousin got married this afternoon ina gorgeous wedding. The food was good, the drinks were good and the music was good. I’d call that a win-win. And his new bride was absolutely gorgeous and is such a wonderful, fun addition to the family. Congratulations Anthony and Laura. May you have many, many years of happiness.
I’m obsessed with this candle. I received a free sample of a Colonial Candle last year and I was hooked. They have a flagship store in Charleston near the market so I picked up a few when we visited in December. Then I ordered a couple online earlier this spring. I absolutely love them. They last a long time and smell great. I think the strawberry rhubarb is my favorite. I always like the fruity scents.
For dinner, Ron made a new recipe–chicken broccoli quinoa casserole. I love chicken and broccoli, but I can’t seem to embrace quinoa. I’ve tried it two different ways and there’s just something I don’t like about it. I think it tastes too earthy if that make sense. The dish wasn’t bad, but it was a little too much quinoa and sour cream. I’m definitely going to give it another try though. And I’m going to try to find a new quinoa use because I feel like if I could find a good recipe for it then I might like it.
