Kim's Day

We celebrated Kim's birthday yesterday with lunch out at PF Chang's. We love their Lettuce Chicken Wraps, and have used this recipe at home to recreate when we feel like it. It's the only recipe I have tried and I think it is actually pretty close to the original if not better. Oh, and just so you know, PF Chang's at least over on this side of town is not real busy on a Saturday afternoon!!

We came back home and gave Kim presents.

Two skeins of Stitchjones Sock Yarn. One is the Glam kind with silver sparkles in it. And the other regular sock yarn. The Glam colorway is Garnet and the other is Twisted Sister.

The Twilight Series on audio. (It's for me too, since I've only read the first book. ;))

A ring that she has had her eye on since last year. It has crosses on the outside and on the inside it says, "Guide me waking, Guard me sleeping."

She made her own cake as she wanted to experiment with frosting and fillings. She made a plain vanilla cake and used a can and a half of chocolate cream cheese frosting. For a filling she melted chocolate chips and a chunk of other chocolate and spread it in between the two layers. It hardened up so it was like a chocolate candy bar in between. It was very yummy!!

Happy Birthday my young lady. One more year till your license.
