Brian's Special Day

Today is Brian's birthday! Hurray! He's an "old" 26 now, or so he tells me, anyway! Today was a great day for birthday celebrations!

We started off by getting paid for a commission, then using that money to celebrate! We went to Game Stop and he bought Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker for the Gamecube. Then we went to King Gyros downtown. I actually had a chicken gyro (minus the raw onion and tomato) we split an order of onion rings and a Dr Pepper. Brian had a 1/4 lb cheeseburger with grilled onion and pickles.

Then we came home and got ready to go to a reception. I put on that great dress I bought not too long ago. I did my nails in a funky manicure.  The tips were teal and the base was purple, to match the dress. Also went with teal/purple eyeshadow, fake lashes, and liquid mascara. Stick straight hair, which turned out to be really nice. Brian went in a red dress shirt and black pinstripe suit pants. He looked hot :)

 Our friend got married today and invited us out to the reception and he had commissioned Brian for a drawing, which we printed off and framed for them, He's going to pay us for it tomorrow, since we thought it would be tacky of him to open a wedding gift card and hand us cash out of it!

There was an open bar and a buffet! But, we stuck to chocolate milk (what? haha) and the buffet was amazing! They had lots of fruits and veggies, cheeses and crackers, shredded chicken and pork for BBQ sandwiches, roasted chicken, baked macaroni and cheese, BBQ baked beans. This reception hall was HUGE and fully staffed, and there were probably 150-200 people there, easily. And we only knew the groom!

I got crab macaroni salad, macaroni & cheese, two pieces of roasted chicken (so so good), a few slices of cheese and crackers, and some strawberries. I. was. STUFFED.

We came home and relaxed a little and now I want cake and am depressed that we did not get cake, either at the reception or for his birthday, so I sent him out to buy his own cake and ice cream. This may seem a little heartless, but Brian is the type who doesn't have favorite cake. Forcing him to pick his own means that he really has to think about what kind of cake he wants, and therefore he will choose a good one. The ice cream will probably be straight up vanilla. He loves vanilla. He said it's a very simple, classic, clean flavor. But he might also turn up with some rocky road. I was half right... He picked vanilla bean and chocolate.. like a Neapolitan but with out the strawberry. Also he got an Oreo cookies and creme cake...I gotta .... uh... go... I'll see you guys later.
