My Mom was out of town on Saturday, so I ended up celebrating my birthday with both of my parents on Sunday. Pictured above is some of the gifts that I got for my birthday (panda tea for two set, Tim Gunn’s new book, and a stained glass cupcake nightlight). For dinner, I went to Hula’s in Santa Cruz with my Mom and Dad. We made sure to order a huge basket of their sweet potato fries (they’re the best). For dinner I ordered the macadamia encrusted tofu with mango/papaya sauce, yum! After dinner we picked up some vegan cupcakes from New Leaf and then headed home. Also for my birthday, my parents got me a heated mattress pad. It makes me feel old and curmudgeonly that I wanted this for my birthday but it makes my bed so cozy and warm. Above I posted a picture of Keiko (my cat) enjoying the newly heated bed (he’s in kitty heaven!).
