Yep! Today is my birthday and I am really happy with my life. So, I would consider this a good birthday already even though it's only 9 am.
Chris and I met yesterday to discuss our catering expansion and retail venture. It went really well...he and I really seem to mesh and have extremely similar viewpoints. So, on Wednesday we are going to get together and work out our catering menus, price structures, set up a program to teach cooking classes and nail down a commercial kitchen that we can utilize when business starts to take off. And most likely we will be planning a reception for our target business people and the movers and shakers in the community to announce that The Bicycle Chef, has branched out. We anticipate that we will have the whole catering aspect up in running in 6-8 weeks. I can't wait.
Yesterday, I headed up to Newcastle to spend time with my FAVORITE cousin Tina. We did some shopping...of course. Then she took me to dinner at Tres Agaves...I splurged a bit. We had the most delicious carnitas, a pitcher of their awesome margaritas (rocks not blended) and I was given a birthday shot of tequila that was as smooth as silk. Oh yeah!! Afterwards, we headed to the mall to do....more shopping. Since it was my birthday, I went to Sephora to cash in on my loyal customer status and was rewarded with some very nice makeup and a bottle of Givenchy perfume on the house. Happy Birthday to me! We also headed over to Lush which is store that specializes in bath bombs, soaps and lotions. My wonderful cousin got me the honey massage bar...it smelled so good that I wanted to eat it. Then it was off to Susie and Larry's where I indulged in a glass of wine and a few laughs with some awesome people.
Tonight, the girls and I are headed to The Torch Club to listen to The Nibblers play; they are one of my favorite bands. It looks to be a fun night with some of the best women I know! My 41st year is looking to be a very good one...
