Happy Birthday to Me!

On Friday, I stopped at the APO to check the mail and was told we had a package. I was expecting it to be a birthday gift from my parents. When the box said Mrs. Field's cookies, I was a bit confused. When I opened the box I was so surprised to see this beautiful cookie cake sent from Sofia, Rob and Brandon:
On Saturday, we had a relaxing day. Ronnie wanted to buy me some new shows for my birthday so we started the day at the mall on a hunt for new shoes, but we didn't have any luck. We went to TGI Friday's for lunch then off to the spa for a couples massage. This was my first professional massage and it was fabulous!! We'll definitely be doing that again. Luckily, the spa often offers 2-for-1 specials to the Embassy so the both of us got a 45 minute massage for $55! After our massage we decided to head to another mall, but again, we had no luck with the shoes so we called it a day and headed home. Later on in the evening we met Denise for sushi then came back to the apartment until Denise's ride came. It was a great day. Since a lot of my friends here were just getting back from traveling we postponed the big night out for next weekend. We're having friends over for drinks then we're going to a bar called FlashBack. They play only 80's music and is supposed to be lots of fun! Wish you could all be here to celebrate with me.

It's so exciting for us to read about what you are experiencing in Quito. The local traditions are interesting to say the least. :-)

Keep the blog going!

I Love and Miss You Both! xoxoxo
