The afternoon started with lunch at Gourmet Burger Co. -- Oh yes, I ate a burger AND a poutine! Good choice, right? I got the works, with everything on it... heaven.
|No photo of my food, because I devoured it as soon as I got it..|
|Say "Chuck E. Cheeeeeese"!|
For dinner, we stopped off at a restaurant called 'Nader's Middle Eastern Grill and Bakery' for some beef shawarma. Pretty damn delicious, gotta' say.
Couldn't leave without picking up a few items from their bakery: baklava galore!
And no birthday is complete without CAKE! Picked up some red velvet cake and was surprised (by my big sister) with sparklers, a candle and a mediocre rendition of 'Happy Birthday' (which I'm pretty sure, I sang entirely myself, to myself)
Ended the night by watching a super-amazing UFC card, which happened to be FREE! Could it get any better?
Oh, of course I was delighted by an email from Brian, outlining a birthday weekend he planned for us in Chicago -- complete with lunch, hotel, dinner, hotel, entertainment, breakfast and SHOPPING!
I'm such a lucky girl :)
