I had the best birthday weekend. On Thursday I had a little party at the Redwood and so many people showed up and I was so touched! All my friends are too good to me. Curtis got me roses and made me a lemon birthday cake. He is the best.

Vegas was a blast but I am exhausted. The highlight reel:
-Dinner at Bouchon (Thomas Keller). I ate skate in a brown butter/veal stock sauce with fried squash blossoms and creme brulee for dessert.
-getting a 10% discount on our rental car as our "wedding gift" after we told the guy we were getting hitched to get out of paying the additional driver fee.
-Seeing old Vegas/Fremont Street for the first time and scoping out the neon sign graveyard (unfortunately we couldn't get in--appointment only--but Curtis took pictures over the fence).
-a bottle of Moet White Star and a beautiful bouquet of flowers waiting for me in our room courtesy of my dad and his girlfriend
-awesome pool and beautiful weather
-international soda tasting at the Coke store
-Winning $50 at Big Spin and the slots (and losing it all the next day)
-Seeing my sister and Steve!

I should used to it by now but I'm always amazed at how much fun Curtis and I have together. I just love being with him all the time and traveling with him is so super fun. As always, though, I feel kind of gross after a weekend in Vegas. All I want now are some fresh veggies, which don't seem to exist there, and a good sleep. It didn't help that our flight was delayed over two hours and I didn't get home until after 1am (and was at work at 8:40). The Vegas airport is the WORST.
