So…it’s not my birthday until the end of the month, but since we’ll all be on Christmas break, my lovely friends decided to plan a little surprise night for me while we’re all still together. We had originally planned to do a carriage ride downtown and then grab dessert on the top of the Hancock building (check out those desserts!), but the Chicago weather was much too brutal for us. After locking myself in the library for over 6 hours studying these bad boys (aka, my nutrition – eek!)…
Just look at those yummy slices of heaven (Of course I wouldn’t eat this ever day, but c’mon, THIS was a celebration of my birth! 🙂 )
And for dessert?
Now I’m not usually a fan of chocolate cake/cookies/ice cream, but these chocolate cupcakes were divine. Just the right amount of moistness, and the mint-flavored frosting on the top (I had part of the green, mint cupcake) may have thrown me into a sugar-rush (but in a good way :))
I opened my gifts (thanks, girls!) and am soooo looking forward to drinking warm tea out of my new “A” mug from Anthropologie, coffee from the apple-green traveling thermos, and diving into The Company They Kept: Writers on Unforgettable Friendships. I mean, do these girls know me or what?!
On to more birthday celebrations and more fun!! (Oh wait, I have 3 more finals…?)
And I ask you: A convo with my sis the other day sparks the idea for this question…Do you prefer pizza cut into triangles, or into squares? Or some other way? Preferences, please!
