BIRTHDAY to D!
Today Ashlyn and I went out with Sis, Chris, Amanda, and Marisa. We had lunch in Cupertino, then shopped at Valley Fair since I needed to pick up a few birthday gifts. My nieces and I spent quite a while in the Build-A-Bear Workshop. I got each twin a bear as a belated birthday gift and we went through the whole cool process of picking out the animal "skin", stuffing it, inserting a heart, and registering your bear (complete with a birth certificate and everything). I got a kick out of the cute lil' outfits and costumes you can buy your stuffed animal...including Sketcher shoes!!! =)
shopping, I dropped Ashlyn off with my parents and headed up to the
City with Wil and Tony for D's surprise birthday party. D and Lyle are
visiting from Hawaii, so it was a special treat being able to celebrate
D's birthday with her. A huge group of us met at Wall Street Restaurant
& Bar, dined in a private room, and had a great time. The restaurant
was nicely decorated with vaulted ceilings and comfy booths. The service
was great and the prime rib was amazing! The fare was impressive, too!
Lyle generously picked up the whole tab...making all of us pretty darn
huffy. After dinner, we moved the afterparty to Larry Flynt's Hustler
Bar (thanks to Angel and her VIP passes).

Pictures from tonight:
D and Lyle are flying back to the Island tomorrow, so we didn't hang out at the club for long. Out of sheer coincidence, D and Lyle gave me a bear from Build-A-Bear Workshop that they lovingly stuffed for Ashlyn. They bought it while we were in Vegas, and named it Elvis in honor of Ashlyn's first trip to Sin City. I'll be sure to take it back and put it among all the other cool loot they got Ashlyn. Thanks, you guys!
Once again, the City took my breath away. I loved being in all the different parts of SF. I really missed it.
Have a great weekend!
