Well it has been a hot minute since I have checked in my friends! I realized I haven't said nairy a word since BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY (which was September 8th if you want to put it in your calendar for next year). I turned 20-12. It was very low key. Last year we went out and got drunk and ended up having a little tift if you will, a little alcohol induced argument, so this year I wanted a nice romantic dinner with my girlfriend, starring me. We went to one of my favorite restaurants on the beach, where my only stipulation was that I could order whatever I wanted to eat and she couldn't give me ANY "oh I can't believe you are about it eat that" glances. I had an appetizer of onion straws, a main course of steak marsala (about 10 ounces which I ate all of it) and a brownie and ice cream for dessert. I will tell you my restriction is pretty loose (see the 10 ounce steak statement) and I was actually FULL. Like, real human being without a band, food in my lower stomach full. I havent felt that way really, since getting banded. I remember now how horrible that feeling is. But it was GOOD.
Heather bought me a new camera for my birthday, which meant we had to have a self-timer photoshoot on the beach after dinner. If you are on my facebook, you have seen some of these already...
The Poky Little Cupcake. Our hotel has a little pond by it. Hence the pond shot below. I am excited to meet Nat, however, I am concerned that I will be drunk by the time we meet at 8:30. Free drinks at the conference start in 15 minutes. Good lord.
But I must go. There is free wine to be had. And mama likes free wine. And nooners. Did I mention Heather is here with me? Vacationing whilst I work?
Toodles my friends!
