Birthdays are always a big deal for me. On my birthday, I celebrate the past year with my family and I look forward to another year with them.
This birthday my mom, my husband, and my hana’i sister and her husband planned a great day for me. It was probably one of the best birthdays I have had. They were all very secretive, and I didn’t know anything was going to happen until the day of when they whisked me away to an undisclosed location in Seattle.
The location ended up being SkyCity at the Space Needle for brunch, and it was delicious. I ordered the Kurubota Ham and Beecher’s Cheese omelette with potatoes and corn bisque. My mom and husband ordered the prime rib — everything was excellent and the service was amazing.
Here are a few photos from SkyCity:
After, my Hana’i sister and her husband met up with us at Chocolate Box. Chocolate Box re-did their whole space. The last time we visited they had ice cream, pastries, and coffee drinks. They don’t have any of that anymore. Instead, they just serve gourmet sipping chocolate, hot chocolate and wine. If you get the chance, I highly recommend the sipping chocolate with vanilla whipped cream and caramel swirl marshmallows.
As you can see, my daughter absolutely loved it and they stayed there for a while. The guys agreed to watch them while my sister, Mom, and I ran to the Fluevog sale. (My husband said since it was my birthday I could go with his blessing).
If you haven’t heard of Fluevog, you’ve been missing out. Fluevog is an amazing store where unicorns and rainbows abound. Okay, maybe not, but they have GORGEOUS footwear that is both comfortable and fanciful. Although I didn’t purchase a shoe from the store that day, I scored a few beautiful ones on eBay and from the Fluemarket in the evening.
It was the perfect day filled with love and celebration. I couldn’t ask for a better family or a better day (except if my brother and his girlfriend had able to come up from Los Angeles to spend it with me).
