Happy Birthday to me!

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Hi Everyone!

I have a few pictures to share from my recent bday (I turned 30!)

My friend Julie planned a lunch for me at one of my favorite restaurants, Settebello, and invited several of my ward friends to join us. She went all out - including a crown and scepter for me (the queen: ), my favorite candy - Reese's PB cups - and 30th bday balloons, napkins, and cards all over the table, and she even asked Bryce a bunch of questions about me and gave my friends a little 'How well do you know Erika' quiz.

It was a lot of fun - 30 isn't so bad after all!

For my bday, Bryce took me to an unbelievably fabulous restaurant. He always makes me feel loved and special - not just with big things like this but small, everyday things too. I love that about him.

The restaurant itself's not that important, but I'd love to share a couple pics to give you a flavor of the evening. Fyi, the shots below are a little blurry cause 1)I took them with my phone and 2)I was trying to take the pictures quickly so people wouldn't notice the crazy person who taking pictures of her food : )!

Beautiful interior -

Lobster beignets, pillow-y (sp??) gnocchi, best steak I've ever had - here are some shots of the food -

Canapes - the little lobster beignet is on the far right.

Seared scallops w/homemade pasta and a shaved truffle on top.

Steak w/delicious spinach (I know, crazy!) and the gnocchi

And...the birthday cake from them that arrived at the end of the meal -



  1. Happy Birthday! For some reason I am really depressed about turning 30!! I am glad yours went well. All my friends will be in PA and I will be all alone this August in Oregon! BOO!! Good you had some great friends to "soften the blow" and the food looked wonderful!


  2. Well happy happy birthday!! You always look so fabulous, glad you were treated like a queen, you deserve it. :) BTW- That is the most charming cake I have ever seen!

  3. Well if my 30th is anything like that, then bring it on!!!

  4. You deserved eveything that day. You are just wonderful Erika and I love you to pieces. But I'm pretty sure you know that already. Happy Birthday again!!! :)

  5. Always a day brightener to click on and find new postings from you. Love the story about the birthday party. Gma

  6. Happy birthday! I will be hitting 30 in a month.
