Happy Birthday Karen!
Tonight, we celebrated Karen's birthday, a week early cos Jess won't be here next week to celebrate it with us. Karen made dinner reservations at La Terrazza for 7.30pm in Yaletown and clubbing afterwards. Rhoda and I weren't going clubbing cos we are too old for that and it's Friday night! After a long work week, we are way too tired to club. It was a small group of us as she had more birthday plans next week so tonight for dinner, it was just me, Rhoda, Jess, Karen, Miwa (co-worker of theirs), Jeff (another co-worker) and Tony (one of her closest friends). It was a nice meal and she was really happy to have us celebrate it with her. She ordered shots for the table and her friend, Tony picked out a bottle of red wine but I didn't like the wine too much nor the shots. I was a bit surprised that she wanted to order shots at dinner since she was heading out clubbing afterwards but hey, it's Karen's birthday, she can have whatever she wants! After dinner, we opened presents and she loved all her gifts even the toothpicks, plastic forks and spoons that we picked up for her cos she is always stealing plastic forks and spoons at fast food restaurants! Rhoda and I picked out a pretty pink blinging ring for her and she loved it! Jess and Miwa picked out a pair of flip flops and a dress from Sky Clothing - really hot and sexy! Jeff gave her a pair of shiny black pumps (with the help of Jess) and Tony gave her a bottle of liquor (strong liquor, I can't remember what it's called). It was a fun night and it looks like she had a great time! (More photos on flickr and facebook!)
