Gia's Birthday Party

Today is my friend Gia's birthday. She turns 35 years old today and last night several of us got together and went to Sake Asian Fusion for her birthday dinner. It was a horrible night to be out - pouring down rain - but we just grabbed presents and umbrellas and made a run f or it. Those of us who went were Gia, Renee, Jessica, Amber, Michele, Stacey, Stephanie, Karen, Karen's Mom, Jennie and myself. Sake Asian Fusion is a tiny little restaurant so we took up a large portion of it and had a very FUN time! Gia opened all of her presents in between ordering and getting our food and she got some AWESOME gifts - a zebra print dress from me that she really wanted, GORGEOUS jewelry made by Karen Holliday herself (you can check out her website here), a fabulous vintage print made by Stephanie(You can check out her website here), a very cute wine stopper, Lemoncello, some HOT shoes and a fun game. Miriam made her a DELICIOUS Death by Chocolate cake before she moved away and it was absolutely scrumptious! We were afraid that we were going to set the sprinklers off from all the smoke from the 35 candles that we put on the cake. We sang Happy Birthday and even some of the other people in the restaurant joined in on the singing. It was a great night!

Happy Birthday Gia! You are a dear friend.
