Time is moving so quickly! It’s been over a month since I last blogged and almost a month since my birthday! While Mr. F was out of town the first two weeks of February, I celebrated my birthday early with my parents, grandparents and uncle at one of my favorite Italian restaurants, Agrodolce. I love all their pastas! The night before my birthday, Mr. F was back in town and we went to a champagne pairing dinner at the Whale Wins with our good friend, Mohit! One of the best dishes was the trout! On my actual birthday I had teleconferences that started at 6 am so by the time it was lunch, I thought a piña colada was in order at my favorite lunch place, La Isla! It was a perfect birthday treat. The day got even better as we celebrated my birthday dinner with our good friends, Kelly, Patrick and Mohit at Brimmer & Heeltap! February was so great because I didn’t have to travel much and we had so many great meals celebrating us! On Valentine’s Day, Mr. F made delectable egg pasta carbonara. The next night we celebrated again at How to Cook a Wolf with my parents, grandparents and uncle. Tootie and I love Italian food.
On Mr. F’s birthday, Mohit joined us again and we shared a fantastic bottle of Bionic Frog! We also went to a fun small plates restaurant, Manolin down the street from us.
We celebrated Mohit’s birthday with a ferry ride to Bainbridge Island! We had a great lunch near the ferry and walked to Bainbridge Organic Distillers two miles from the ferry docks. It was gorgeous weather and hard to believe it was 60 degrees on the last day of February. To top off our wonderfully indulgent month, we had dim sum before my trip to Los Angeles. While we were eating humbao and potstickers, a small dragon parade went by! As if my birthday month couldn’t get any better, I was upgraded to First Class to and from Los Angeles, saw a great friend for lunch and a yoga session, plus I got to relax in the Alaska Airlines Board Room in LAX AND I sat behind a celebrity on the way back!!
