Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today is my dad's birthday.... he is turning 35! hee hee hee... not really, but I don't think he would appreciate his age posted on my web site. He and my step-mom and brother Jon and Laura showed up at my new place to check it out and have some wine. I made this baked brie thing with cranberries and apricots... with crackers. YUM. And, also some homemade bruschetta. I munched on that so I wasn't even hungry for dinner! We went to a place called Bona Corso's here in Pasadena. The food there is amazing. Too bad I wasn't hungry for anything. I just had a bowl of soup.

It was nice to spend my dad's birthday with him. He is such a wonderful man.

Now, just chillin out.... relaxing. I spent the whole day running errands, putting together new stuff I got from IKEA, and cleaning the house. I was barely done by the time they showed up. Thank goodness the munchies I made didn't take too long to bake!

I am so pooped from the last few days. I ended up going straight to work when the conference was over Friday. My boss, Jim, took me and my co-worker Jennifer out to lunch around 1:00... so I got back to the office about 2:30. I worked until 6:00! What a long day. I fell asleep on the couch for an hour or so and then was online until midnight chatting with my friends Ryan and Danny. Man, I was peeing in my pants laughing so hard. We were reminiscing all about college. Ryan, Danny, and I were like the Three Muskateers for two years. We spent every moment together .... and there were some crazy moments! It was so fun to catch up with them like that.

I think I'm going to take a bath and then go to bed early! :o)
