This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.
Yesterday was such a great day! It started with a nice workout at the gym with Vasoula and then some time in the jacuzzi! After that I was preparing myself for the girls night in San Diego. I picked up Vasoula at 4pm and we drove to Fashion Valley. We went straight ahead to The Cheesecake Factory. We weren’t gonna eat until 7pm but I wanted to try if I could ask for a table for 8 at 7. No problem, good to know! So we went for a little shopping. First Forever 21 which is a store where Vasoula never been to. She went crazy inside, haha! After that we went to Abercrombie so I could try out a pair of shorts that I would order online later with my 40% off Birthday code. Then to Victoria’s Secret where I bought a new strapless bra. I only have a white so I kinda needed a black one too. I had a $10 gift card and you got a pair of panties of your choice when you bought a strapless bra. A good deal :).
Then we didn’t have more time for shopping and went to the restaurant to wait for our table. We didn’t get it right away though, we had to wait almost an hour!
When we sat down Anna took out a ”Happy Birthday” tiara for me, a cupcake candle and a happy birthday table decoration. Even though it technically wasn’t my birthday yesterday I got a lot of attention with that tiara. I tried the soft tacos from the Skinnylicious menu and it was really good. For dessert I had Craig’s Crazy Carrit Cake Cheesecake. It was okay, but all the other I’ve had tasted better. When it was served the waiters sang Happy Birthday for me. I also got presents from all my wonderful friends! A pretty bracelet from Vasoula, candy from Anna and Laura, and body products from Victoria and Karin. Super sweet of all of them!!
Something funny happened during the dinner too. A guy came up to me and thanked me for the drink I bought him. The waiter told him that one of us bought him a drink and he wanted to return the favor by paying my cheesecake. No one bought him that drink. Later he came back and appologized. His friend had tricked him that one of us bought him the drink when it was him who actually did it but he never thought he would walk up to us and thank us. Haha! He said it was his 25th birthday dinner.
After the dinner me and Vasoula had to change dresses. I had my black long dress at the dinner and wanted to have the short party dress from Diesel at the nightclub. So we went to my car, I locked myself in the trunk while I changed and Vasoula was in the backseat. Thank god for shaded windows! Haha! Even though we changed clothes we got to the nightclub first and had to wait outside for the others for about 40 min. We got in and danced until they closed at 2am. My feet hurt like they’ve never done before. Dancing in 12cm high heels without alcohol does that apperantly. But I had a lot of fun anyway. Much attention from strangers wishing me a happy birthday.
Stingaree was a nice nightclub, but I thought they were playing a little too much hip hop. Much more fun to dance to music you can sing a long to.
All in all, last night was awesome and I had a really great time! I didn’t get home until almost 4am so I was kinda tired today, but totally worth it! Thanks girls! :).
Today was my third LCC meeting (I’ve missed one). Once a year all the au pair groups in San Diego County have a picnic meeting together at a park somewhere. We were at a really nice park right by the sea in Del Mar. Unfortunately the weather today was cold and rainy. But it was nice anyway. I met all my friends and finally met the new Swedish au pair who lives in Ramona. There were cookies and cake which ended my unhealthy half-week. If it’s your birthday it’s okay!
We were there for two hours and then drove back home. I didn’t do much, watched Two and a Half Men more or less.
Time for my date with Mr. Pillow and GoT ep3 now!
