Another year older!
I am quite happy about it. I feel so blessed in my life thus far, I look forward to the years to come. I am so so blessed for my wonderful family (I miss you!), my dear friends, my life in Korea, and to good health (despite my lingering cold, which is pretty minor).
Life is such an adventure and I look forward to what this year bring.
I had a fabulous birthday weekend. I will share some pics that will hopefully sum it up. Saturday night we ventured out to a delicious seafood buffet. Endless sushi, salads, fruit etc. I was so excited by it all I forgot to take a picture of my meal…oops! But I did remember in time for my dessert 😉
After dinner we headed downtown to a swanky cocktail bar. The atmosphere and servers were great. They gave us tons of free food (not that any of us were hungry after the buffet) and two free birthday drinks for me. So nice! Who wouldn’t like a place where you get to relax on a ginormous couch? Mojito on the house…even better!
We have amazing friends here in Korea. We had a lovely night.
Adrian made me this cute card and some delicious french toast. One slice regular and one eggnog. Now, as I made myself clear in my last post, I really don’t like drinking eggnog, but eating it in the form of french toast, now that’s a different story. It was delicious!
I have been on the hunt for a winter jacket for a couple of weeks and am still unsuccessful. But while we were downtown shopping we did warm up with a big bowl of Japanese Ramen. We have not had ramen since we were in Japan this past summer, so it was a nice treat.
For my birthday dinner a whipped up a big pot of winter vegetable minestrone. I guess I am on a soup kick, which probably has something to do with my cold. Nothing beats a good bowl of soup when you are sick.
One big pot = lots of yummy leftovers!
One more birthday cake, don’t mind if I do!
Vanilla cheesecake with chocolate drizzle.
I used to always request that my Mom make me a chocolate marble cheesecake on my birthday. This was nowhere near as good as hers, but it did the trick.
Don’t worry, I only devoured one piece. Lots leftover. It will be the birthday cake that just keeps on giving 🙂
Hope you all had as fun a weekend as I did.
Take good care and have a wonderful start to your week.
p.s. Do you have a special cake that you always request on your birthday?
