Since you guys got to meet Dara the other week on one of our live chats for the book club, I thought you might like to know that we had so much fun celebrating her 31st birthday yesterday.
It all started with a 6:15am run around the neighborhood with Kristin and I. (Jenny was in the kitchen making delicious chocolate chip banana pancakes) Jenny, by the way, is the best cook/baker in the world. She made an amazing “barbie” cake for a 5yr olds birthday this past weekend and I’m not kidding when I say that it was the most unreal thing I have ever seen. AND it tastes delicious! Moms, if you need someone to make a cake for you, you just let me know and I can see if we can convince her to do one for you =) Check this out…….
I know, right? Ridiculous!
ANYWAY, we sent Dara off to work for the day, and reconvened back at our house at 6:45pm for dinner. We ate the most delicious meal at a restaurant here called Tolouse. It’s this little french place that we had never been to before and it was fantastic! They even gave us a free dessert that was a little piece of heaven in the mouth: warm, chocolate nutella cake! yummmmm
Of course we sat there and talked for quite some time. We have a tendency to eat for hours when we are together.
Let me just tell you how much I love me some Dara. She is one of my favorite things about living in Dallas. Really, I think I have the most amazing friends – I’m a lucky gal. Here are a few pictures from our night . . .
