A bit late, but I feel I must mention what an absolutely fabulous job TH did celebrating my birthday this year.
A few weeks before baby came we ate at my absolute favorite restaurant in Dallas, Aurora. How can I properly convey the magnificence that is this dinging experience? We had a coupon and we decided not to use it, simply because we felt bad depriving the business of a few extra dollars and we hoped that our small contribution might help them stay in business long enough for us to come back again when business school is finished (that is assuming business ever declines for them, but how could such a thing occur for what I consider to be the best restaurant in Dallas?).
This is complimentary with your meal. Some kind of fishy custardy delight stuffed into an egg shell.
My favorite part of the Aurora dining experience is the dessert sampler. I talk about this dish all the time.
Oh so puffy and swollen but I still managed to polish off everything I was served. Plus some really delicious bread.
On my actual birthday, a few days after the birth of T1, That Husband treated me to a sushi spread in the comfort of our dining room. The water bottle you see on the table was one of my birthday gifts. It hasn’t left my side since he gave it to me.
Even better than Aurora and the sushi (if that’s even possible) were the cupcakes from our favorite bakery in Dallas, Society Bakery.
Everything you see on this table is a gift. Flowers from my mom, a cake stand that I plan to use for taking pictures, and some gifts from my mom as well.
Love that That Husband is willing to wear T1 in the pink carrier we have.
I am rather untalented in the candle extinguishing department. I think it took me 5 tries.
My mom wrapped up the shoes you see below and a necklace/earring set and told me to choose between them. I passed up the shoes, if you can believe it, but only because TH gifted me the pair I included on my wish list a few weeks ago.
Birthday #25 is going to be a hard one to top!
