lunch in the park (yes, the weather was really quite nice)
pitango gelato and brasserie beck.
my birth-day in chronological order:
(ben took the day off from work, which was really what i wanted for my birthday. thanks for giving me that, ben.)
woke up to the sound of rain. love the sound, but i was bummed it was raining.
it wasn't raining anymore! the rest of the day was SO nice!
waffles for breakfast.
grocery shopping (also a favorite thing of mine. is that strange?)
went to get a lobster roll to share from red hook lobster pound. ben told them it was my birthday, they gave me one for free!!!
lunch in dupont circle.
back home to chillax again
ate the rest of the leftover lemon bars i made.
movie at 5:15. the adjustment bureau. i thought it was great. it's good to think through things, use one's agency, figure out things for oneself. i'm a big advocate of this.
we went crazy and got kid's size popcorn. also brought some other snacks for the movie
pitango gelato (dessert first, one of my favorite things). being the gelato snob i am, i continually feel impressed with their product.
quick stop at zara and h&m
late dinner at brasserie beck. it's a belgian restaurant we've been to before. they are famous for their mussels and fries, which are so super good. we just took our time, ate, laughed and enjoyed looking at the eclectic clientele b.b. brings in.
back home again.
when we were about to go to sleep, ben said,
"and tomorrow i am just going to eat cookies and milk for breakfast"
"that makes me feel sick just thinking about it"
"it makes me feel sick too"
and then we just belly-laughed about it.
so basically, we ate the entire day. to me, it was perfect.
