The last day of me being 38 was well-spent!
Both boys have their school Halloween party today so I got busy in the morning trying to get them dressed up and faces painted. I, too, dressed up for PP’s party as a Japanese Female Warrior to go with his Karate Kid’s costume. It was fun to dress up and have my face paint, however, I was not skilled enough and my face ended up looking a bit funny.
After the party I picked up Peanut at his school, he did not even recognize me at first. At a red-light stop I looked over to the car next to me and an old lady was shocked upon looking at my face. I had to mouth to her that it was for Halloween party. Then at Wholefoods people were also smiling at me, saying that it was a nice costume. Some even said Hakuna Matata to Peanut as he is the war-hog, Pumbaa, from the movie Lion King. He was a bit shy when receiving attention.
Here was my attempt at being the Japanese Female Warrior, except I had no sword to carry. I borrowed the kimono from the Japanese restaurant that I once worked the summer after my first year of college.
Celebrating the 39th-birthday a day early!
O and the boys took me to a fancy Italian restaurant in town. It was our first time there and we had such a good experience.
I had freshly made squid-ink fettuccine with clams and white wine sauce. It was on the small portion side, but bursted with great flavor. The pasta was just al dente, with a good nice bite into it.
The manager even gave me a free birthday treat. 😀
Getting up there on the hill as 39 will come tomorrow. 😀
