Wow, first off I want to thank everyone for their helpful comments about the makeup situation, I'll be sure to let you know what I come up with! Also, thanks for all the birthday wishes, yesterday was the actual day and I'll be sure to post what we had for dinner, but first I need to play some catch up!
Friday night, several of my girlfriends were kind enough to have a "hen" night aka bachelorette party for me (my mom refers to it as my hen night, since they just returned from living in the UK, plus I think it sounds more unique than bachelorette). My only request was that it be tame, just an evening of cooking dinner, having a few drinks, and maybe some dancing. Luckily my request was honored :-) We started off the evening by fixing a vegan meal together, how sweet of them! We enjoyed bruschetta as an appetizer, then moved on to the main course of mango-tofu springs rolls, tempeh with curry peanut sauce, and a simple green salad with plenty of veggies. Everything was delicious, thanks so much to my girlfriends for a great meal!
For dessert, we had chocolate fondue (dark chocolate mixed with chocolate soymilk), with long-stem strawberries and coconut covered vegan marshmallows as dippers. My friends were blown away by the vegan marshmallows!
And I couldn't help posting a photo of me opening some of the "fun" gifts that my friends got me, censored of course for the public eye :-)
My days as a bachelorette are numbered, in fact, two weeks from now exactly, I will be standing in my wedding dress and reciting my vows!!
