Happy Birthday to me! How cute is this Olivia necklace that Truman got for me.
As a bit of a birthday present (and also to go to a family reunion) we went to California for the weekend.
We went on an awesome food tour in Hollywood, we decided not to eat the stir fried baby. I'm going to assume there was a translation issue.
These may have been the biggest hit, walnut red bean donut things from Cocohodo . We bought three dozen. There was also amazing Northern Thai food, Armenian food, and Korean BBQ. God, I miss LA.
Also got a change to see some friends from college. Great late night feminist theory conversation with Shannon after Rapture, Blister, Burn is just plain good for the soul. The midnight In-N-Out choice may have been a more debatable health choice.
Kate just moved back to California. Pretty stoked that I'll get to see her more often than every four years.
Finally, there was a family reunion that involved a belated birthday celebration, toddlers doing their best flying bird impressions, and giant jenga.
