I just had such a wonderful time with my friends celebrating my 27th birthday!
Everything just fell into place. I didn't have a babysitter until Saturday morning.
My friend Marisol's mom watched my kids. I had dinner reservations at
Harney Sushi in Old Town at 10pm and then we headed over to Bar Dynamite.
Our table was reserved for 8 people but 11 of us showed up at the restaurant. What can I say, we're Mexican.We are used to being cramped into small places. Dinner and drinks were delicious! I had the usual, Flaming Lip Roll and Sonomono salad. Usually, I drink a sweet cocktail called pink pussy cat but this time I went with everybody else's drink and had a cucumber martini.
I absolutely loved it! Of course Deedee had to spike my drink with some tequila too :)
After dinner we had a table reserved at Bar Dynamite and we danced to the best music EVER! The dj played a bunch of Motown classics, newer music like Diplo and Pharrell and then back some hip hop classics like Biggie. We got a call that Luna wouldn't stop crying so we went and picked her up. Friends came over to Mari's house and I just went to bed around 3:30 after I went to put Luna down to sleep, I fell asleep with her. Sunday morning we went to get the kids, Niko and Sammy were playing having fun. Sammy is Niko's little girlfriend. She's 3 years old with a whole lot of attitude and Niko seems to dig it because yesterday morning he told my mom, "Sammy is hot". I know this because I heard him say it while I was in the other room. I still don't know why he said that or how he meant it. It just seems too much for a 2 year old to say that. I don't think he meant it like that, but he sure did say it! Sunday was my actual birthday and I went to Red Lobster with my mom. I chose Red Lobster because I always crave their coconut shrimp and biscuits! Yum! My mom slept over so I got to go out with my friends again, we were supposed to go see Simian Mobile Disco but ended up at El Dorado. As soon as we walked in I ran into my old bud Nick and he pointed out the nail art going on. I walked straight to her and this girl had samples of her work. AMAZING stuff! I have always wanted to get my nails done in a really cool way like this. While I was getting my nails done, there was a girl playing the best music. Funk, soul and hip hop classics! I had met the girl who did my nails about 5 years ago on my birthday too! We have a lot friends in common and she's the coolest chick! It was the perfect evening. I wish I had more pictures to share.. Maybe I will get some from friends later.. here are a few of my fab weekend! xo
