Welcome to 28
There's nothing quite like celebrating your birthday in China, a full 15 hours ahead of home time...two birthdays! HA! My day was fabulous: hung out with new friends, grabbed a Starbucks, took a nap with Goober, played with Goober, took a walk with Goober strapped to my chest as usual, went ellipticalling (yeah, it's a word in my book), then went to a yummy Italian restaurant for dinner. Wait, what? You read that right...Italian in China. Hee hee. It was delish! This restaurant is fairly well-known around here for being a legit place to get your spaghetti on, it's called Da Marco. The chef/owner is from Italy and of course, knows his stuff. Even bringing Goober with us to dinner was no problem. While we waited for a table, a waitress brought over two glasses of champagne. Yay!
I ordered spaghetti with homemade noodles and it was divine. So good! Plus, a glass of Chianti and gelato to top things off really made the dinner a success. 28 doesn't feel that bad.
So now I'm relaxing in my awesome Tommie Copper calf sleeves on our 20th floor apartment balcony...bring it, year!
