Birthday-Palooza: Friday

These are just some random highlights of my weekend's beginning. I started it off right with a solid bowl of hot cereal (oat bran, wheat bran, avocado, applesauce, egg whites, coconut milk and spices; topped with my other sample of Barney Butter and a dried apple slice).

The weather in NYC was nothing short of perfect today, so I made sure to get outside for a walk, and I had to pause for a picture of this church at Broadway and 10th Street in all its blooming springtime glory.

I knew exactly what I wanted for the first of several pre-birthday meals tonight: zucchini parm and garlic bread from La Traviata. Random craving, but it was a decisive moment so I went with it, and I have no regrets but for the indelible taste of garlic in my mouth. Pet peeve!

Tonight was another game night hosted by a Brooklyn friend, so the roomie and I headed over there later this evening. Said friend is also a talented baker, so we enjoyed a delicious batch of cheese straws over a rousing game of Cranium. Being the selfless soul that I am, I also managed to put on my big girl panties and share VeggieGirl's blondies with the crowd (huge hit, of course!). I am turning 26 on Monday, after all. I should probably know how to share by now. Maybe I'm allowed to remain a work in progress for just the next two days, though...

Have a fun birthday weekend! Making the celebration last longer than one day is always fine in my book :)
