Birthday recap

The weekend has officially come to an end and what a wonderful weekend it was. Len threw me a 30th birthday party at West End Johnnies, here in Boston. I felt so lucky to be surrounded by my sweet boyfriend, good friends, new and old, great food (I ate the whole cheese platter), bountiful wine and a kick-ass location.

Len rented the place from 7-10 but we ended up sharing space with the Boston Bruins. I couldn’t pick a Bruin out of a lineup but it was still kind of cool. One of the best parts of my party was having people show up just for me. I felt very, very special. Another cool part was finally getting a hair cut. Can you believe it hadn’t been cut by a professional (meaning anyone  other than me) since November 2008??!! Nutzoid.

Here’s a recap of my peeps. Thanks to everyone who came. I love you all.

My best friend since 2nd grade. We had a moment in the mens bathroom.

Even preg, they showed up.

And a big, huge, giant thank you to the man in charge. Thank you for making my birthday celebration one that I will remember and cherish forever.

Unfortunately I didn’t capture (nor taste) all the food but here’s some of it.

Honest to god, those cheese wedges were 2 inches thick. No wonder I haven't pooped in days.

These anti-pasti spears were insanity. Criminal, really.

Other bites included vegetarian spring rolls, quesadillas,  beef & chicken skewers, and wings. And of course, the cake.  I felt embarrassed while everyone sang Happy Birthday to me. I wanted to climb the pillar and hide behind the ceiling panel. Clearly I don’t have the arm strength for that.

Chocolate on chocolate baby!

Who’s the psycho with the knife?

I was home and in bed by 12:30. I’m wild and crazy like that.
