Special Times

A birthday celebration was on the horizon. Once three friends were able to coordinate calendars (a major accomplishment), a plan evolved. The recipe for a birthday celebration begins by meeting at a lounge for martinis and munchies.

Toss in a trip across town to a food truck for a “twisted” taco. As we pulled up to the truck, our hopes were dashed. They were closed! It had been a cool and rainy day, so the truck decided to shut down early. Were we out of luck? Goodness no! (Do you know Pete the Cat? If not, you need to head out to the bookstore and check him out.) We hopped into the car and headed out for another food truck, The Traveling Taco. The specialty of this truck is a fried taco. It did not disappoint.

The final ingredient for the night was the laugh out loud movie Bridesmaids. Of course no birthday celebration would be complete without dessert. Mini-cupcakes and cake pops (balls of cake on a sucker stick) were smuggled into the theater. The only thing missing was the candle.

Great food & beverages + Funny movie = One delightful birthday celebration with girlfriends

The evening still puts a smile on my face when I think back on those few hours.

    What a post! Thanks for this! We are a week away from that celebration and I am still laughing. How it was pulled of is beyond me! I am ready to go again!

  3. If you all get together to celebrate each others’ birthdays, you end up a whole lot closer to the number of celebrations you each deserve in a year! Sounds like fun. I need a girls night out! I love the reference to the Pete the Cat tucked in there–like the teacher you just couldn’t resist piping up.
