Check out that spread!!Oh, see that thing in the middle? The white thing with the black seaweed band? That's octopus. Yep, sure it. And not your little fried squid appy either. No sir-the real deal. Jeff ordered it and said, "oh, you'll like it, its kind of seared on both sides...not raw like the tuna." Let me tell you what. That thing was jiggly as the day is long. But like a good girl, I tried it, see.
Tenticles and all.
And you'll never guess....but I liked it!!After devouring all my sea creatures, I thought my birthday week had finally come to a funfilled end...until I hear the clinking sounds of little Japanese servers and their instruments entering my view. (I am praying in this moment there is no candle in a Kani roll, with a shot of Saki on the side....) But Jeff strikes again. Either I am completely oblivious, or I ignore the obvious on purpose because I love surprises....but he (with the help of Haley I'm sure!) snuck a cake in behind my back from my favorite bakery, Columbus Corner Bakery! The funny servers did sing an interesting (and interactive!) song, and we then dive into my delicious...or should I say FABULOUS cake! Best part about this cake is when Jeff went to the bakery and they asked him how he wanted it decorated, he told them I was turned 30 (obviously) and said I love the word "Fabulous!" and apparently they asked what else?? So he told them "Well, she's really turned into a real Betty Crocker lately...." Hilarious! So check out the cake!! Priceless!
This guy is the best!
And I had the best birthday week ever! Thank you to all my friends and family for making it so special, with birthday wishes, cards, texts, calls, lunches, dinners, emails, EVERYTHING! I love yall! Bring on 30!
