Yup, I had another birthday!
I kicked off the day with a batch of pancakes using CarrotsNCake Really Good Pancake Recipe.
Wow, they were delicious! I haven't had pancakes in a while, and these did not disappoint! I think the secret ingredient is the yogurt, which makes them kind of light in fluffy. I inhaled them!
Since I haven't had a weekend home in almost a month, I actually had kind of a lazy morning at home. I watched some Tivo'd shows and I may or may not have watched the Royal Wedding again...
I took Clyde on a long walk. Oh my it was a gorgeous day! Deep blue skies and fresh air. It felt so nice outside!
I made a lovely sandwich for lunch: turkey, havarti cheese, avocado, tomato, and spinach on grilled rye. With a side of carrots.
After lunch I ran some errands, then got ready for a night out with my friends.
I started with a Sweetwater IPA that Cindi recommended as my birthday beer.
Jen, Cindi, and I arrived early to get a table and ordered some hummus while we waiting for our friends to arrive.
The pita was warm and delicous, as was the hummus. I need to add paprika to my homemade hummus sometime, I love the added spice it provides :)
For dinner, Cindi and I started plotting to split a pizza and salad. We went with a Greek salad, which was hard to photograph
And a pizza with artichoke hearts, roasted red pepper, and mushrooms.
I had some serious point-and-shoot lighting issues (decided not to bring the DSLR tonight), but here's my girls :)
After we carbloaded, we went next door to Yoforia for a treat.
This was pomegranete, pineapple, banana, strawberry, and taro with fresh pineapple, mochi, and strawberries.
Bloggers in action!
Then I did this...

That's my best I'm-a-white-girl-and-party-like-a-white-girl move.
I had a blast last night. Low key pizza and fro-yo with my buddies was just want I needed to ring in a new year!
