the big two-eight.  whew, that means in less than five short months, i will be right there with her in twenty-eightville.

to celebrate, we all got together for dinner at canella’s. it is on 500 south and 200 east in salt lake city.

they put us in the basement next to the wine cellar. by ourselves, so it was like a private party. fabulous!

for my entree, i ordered the spaghetti pomodoro with chicken.

it came with a side salad. i love their side salads because they aren’t wimpy. this was loaded with cheese, beets, garbanzo and kidney beans, cucumbers and pepperocinis.

the spaghetti was whole wheat and the basil, garlic, parmesan and tomatoes were amazing.

marshall had to order tiramisu for dessert (it is his favorite!) he always orders it if it is on the menu wherever we are. i stole a few bites. naturally.

we left the restaurant with full bellies and happy spirits. canella’s is awesome, if you live in the SLC or close to it.. i highly recommend the restaurant.

marshall and i went back to kristen’s house to give her a gift and sing happy birthday. she doesn’t like cake, but i bought a little one for her to put candles on and make a wish. it’s mandatory!!

love you, kristen! here’s to a great year 28!

Qs~

1. do you what time you were born? i was born at 9:11 PM—during the big flood of 1983!! the rest of my family was evacuated from their house. they call me the flood baby.

2. is there a dessert that you HAVE to order if it is on the menu? marshall is a tiramisu connoisseur, but as for me.. i am just happy with ice cream. any kind will do, thanks.
