Santana Row. Best outdoor mall in the world.
After walking around the mall for a while Billy, Brooke and I went over to my friend’s house because they invited us over for dinner. I walked in and next thing I knew all of my friends were there yelling surprise. I was literally shocked. They are all such good secret keepers.
Don’t know how I ever lived without these girls.
Over the last 6 months as a joke I would always tell Katie (Bangs Friend) things that I wanted for my birthday meal. Each time she made me something amazing I would say… I HAVE to have that for my birthday because I loved it so much. Little did I know she kept a list of them all and made sure that they were at the party and so everybody brought different things.
(She is a little stinker… even though it was her birthday on Friday and my birthday isn’t until Wednesday she refused to let this be a double birthday party….I will get her back).
CAFE RIO PORK SALAD BAR!!!!
My favorite chicken nuggets, caramel corn, lasagna cups.
The best darn homemade crescent rolls you have ever eaten in your life (Billy actually said that was the best thing he has ever eaten… EVER!) Brooke could even tell that they were amazing.
Potato soup with all of the toppings. This is in fact my idea of heaven.
And then the desserts. I don’t even know where to begin with the desserts.
Death by Chocolate
Chocolate cream pie. And since it was for my birthday I was forced to eat both of them and take the leftovers home with me.
The icing on the cake was that they all agreed to play Monopoly with me. Monopoly is my favorite game in the world and the only people I can ever get to play with me are my nieces (my nephew won’t even play with me anymore) so they all spent three hours of their life playing my favorite game with me. It was the perfect night. I was actually feeling really homesick on Friday (I know, really tough life…) and so last night meant the world to me. Love my California family.
Brooke and i totally won. Happy Sunday! I will see you in a few hours for a giveaway that you won’t want to miss.
