My Birthday Weekend

My 27th birthday was on Friday, March 15, 2013.  I worked an entire day.  And during that day, I kept writing 03/15/86 on everything.  Yes, I'm serious.  I almost gave something to a client with that date written on it.  Thankfully, I caught it as I was giving it to them. 
Following the 9 to 5, I went to a wonderful dinner with my family.  Side note: during the last half of my pregnancy, I could not stand the sight of chicken or eggs.  Until this day, I am very picky about how chicken and eggs are prepared.  Fast forward to this weekend, I wanted to go to an old fashion steakhouse.  So since my regular spot had no reservations open until 8:30 p.m. (Which when you have a 4 month old baby, might as well be 2:00 a.m.), we decided to go to The Elephant Bar for the first time.  We had the quick seared ahi and fried green beans appetizers.  They were so amazing that I forgot to take photos.  So this is what was left...

I had the rib eye cooked medium rare, with grilled prawns and mashed potatoes.  It was pretty dark in the restaurant so it was difficult to photograph, but it was delicious!  The steak was cooked perfectly and the potatoes were actually really light and not loaded with butter and cream.

On Saturday, I spent the day with my family again.  If you don't already know, we are moving into our condo in the next week or so!  Trust me, it could not come soon enough!  So we went appliance shopping, had some lunch and looked for some nursery furniture.

My dad steamed some crab for dinner - poor little guy!

And what would dinner be without a glass of wine :)

HoneyB asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday.  I said my perfect birthday would consist of staying in with take-out, pajamas and our little baby.  I proceeded to frown, since I knew there was no way this could happen.  So since we don't have our own place right now, he took me to a hotel in downtown San Diego for the night!  It was the most thoughtful present I could have received.  So he took work off on Sunday and we spent the day walking around Seaport Village, checked into the hotel and had my perfect night :)  I'm new to this blogging thing and I was having such a surreal experience that I forgot to take a lot of photos!  I'm totally kicking myself right now.

This was definitely one of the best birthday's I've had and I feel so blessed!  So cheers to 27 :)
