Mind Right Monday & Birthday Weekend

Happy Monday Girls!! Hope you all had swell weekends. I did. But I have no proof 🙁

You know how good personal bloggers have wonderful stories about their day to day lives, and have all these photos to go along with them…so you start to feel like you know them… yeah… We’ll I’m a crap blogger cuz even though I had my camera, I was too busy enjoying myself to take pics for bloggification. ::shrug::

My bosses kicked me out early on Friday when I told them Saturday was my birthday, (SCORE!!), and on Saturday I was so lazy…but I did my nails!…and then went to dinner w/ my family at one of my fave restaurants….then headed out to dance the night away! I was a lil disappointed that ½ the people who said they were coming backed out, and gutted when my one cousin in Brooklyn bailed by simply saying “not leaving the house, have fun.” (while my other cousin came up all the way from South Florida to spend my dirty 30 with me.)

But I had an awesome time with my friends that came out and my one friend Judy, who turned 30 on 9/10 too…and HATES clubs/bars/noise in general…came out and danced. DANCED! That was one of the best presents I got! Sunday, in a hungover haze my Floridian cousin Arielle and I walked around downtown, got tattoos and ate, and ate and ate. Best day ever.

If you’re in NYC try Perilla, Harold something (winner of Season 1 of Top Chef) owns this place and the food, vibe and service are STELLAR. And if you’re into lobster, try Lukes Lobster….best lobster roll I’ve ever had in life. IN LIFE I SAY!! Then we went to my mom’s and ate more, I opened presents, and was too stuffed to eat my mom’s world famous birthday carrot cake. (guess what I’m having for dinner tonight)

SO yeah…it was a happy birthday weekend. ::sigh:: 30.
