Birthday Celebration!

I intended to make a recipe last night!  However, it was my friend Talia’s birthday today so a few of us went out celebrate her birthday along with my friend Jessica’s whose birthday was the 24th!

We went to a cute Mexican/Salvadorean restaurant called Gloria’s where I had a delicious pupusa with beans and plantains (as if I haven’t had enough fiber today…more beans… lord help me!).  It was delicious!

I also got them a cake (because what good foodie friend wouldn’t!?).  Sadly the bakery section of the grocery store was closed at 9:00pm so I had to write Happy Birthday on the cake myself.  I got creative using a zip lock bag instead of a piping bag and some strawberry jam instead of icing (hard to do since jam is chunky!)…It kind of worked…

The cake was completed with a Bratz candle…

Happy Birthday Talia and Jessica!!

In other news…

Anna, Suzanne and Gina passed on the beautiful blogger award to me!  I’m so excited!  Thanks ladies I think you’re all fabulous too (am I allowed to nominate you too!?!?  Probably not right?  I would though!!)

So I am to post 7 random things about me and nominate 7 other lovely bloggers.

Here it goes….

1. I’m 5’3″ (or maybe 5’2.5″… I think the nurse lied at my last doctor visit…) but I wear a size 9 shoe!  Makes no sense!

2. I love red wine!  I learned to love it in Argentina, where I volunteered at a school for a few months.  I’m by no means a connoisseur.  I just love it all!

3.  I’m not a huge music fan (go ahead… gasp away…).  I like rap/hip hop music, but I really only listen to music while I exercise and occasionally while I cook so I like it to be upbeat.  The exception to this rule is Cat Stevens, whom I love with all my heart.

4. I’ve wanted a pet pig for as long as I can remember.  One day I will have one!

5.  Beyonce is my idol.  I wish I could shake it like her!  Also, I want her butt!

6.  I would love to be a cardio kickboxing instructor but not sure how to go about doing so.  I think I would teach a great class!

7.  Taylor Lautner (aka Jacob from Twilight/New Moon) went to my rival high school… many years after I graduated… but may or may not still live in my hometown… who knows?

My beautiful blogger nominees are:

Betsy, Erin, VeggieGirl, Betty, Coco, Lauren and Karin

Have a fantastic day!
