My friend Rachel's birthday is exactly two weeks before mine (well, and several years later, hah!), and so we decided to have a joint birthday celebration the weekend between our birthdays. And a fun-filled day it was! We had lunch at the Japanese Steakhouse - yum! Then we headed to Arlington to go ice skating, and we followed it up with dessert at The Cheesecake Factory! What a day!
The Japanese lunch was fabulous - delicious rice, veggies, and meat. But then again, Japanese is my favorite, and it's been a good 5 months since I've had it! We were all stuffed, but it was worth it. And of course, we worked a lot of it off on the ice.
None of us have been ice skating in quite some time, so we were all a little nervous and shaky to start out with. We took it slow, hung to the wall until we got our feet steady, and then started being silly, posing and taking pics. Thankfully, we had no falls, only a few close calls, and we all survived in one piece (though I bet we'll all be quite sore tomorrow!).
the best dessert :)
