Birthday Festivities, Part 2

Yesterday was the second of a three to four day birthday celebration for Maren! It will (most likely) be concluded on Friday after her party. It really should be called your “birthday week”. Or month. Anyway. We went out for sushi at Utage, one of our favorite places in Athens.
You can’t have a birthday dinner without a saki bomb! The waitresses even made us do the chant.
Am I the only one who thinks sushi is automatically more fun when it comes in a boat??
Me and Andy went with a more boring option and shared four rolls. But it was still delicious, and you never leave Utage without being uncomfortably full! I swear they were extra good this time.

Weekend Trip To Charleston SC

Yesterday me and Andy booked an impromptu weekend trip to Charleston to celebrate me birthday (which isn’t actually until next Friday). We’re leaving tomorrow morning and we’ll be there around 3 o’clock and the first place we’re going is the city market. I’ve already made a list of places to see and restaurants to eat at, but I’m also planning on asking the locals since I’ve never been there before. Ah, I’m so excited!

I had forgotten about all the vegetables I had just filled my fridge with, though, so today will be a vegetarian kind of day. I made a vegetable salad and fried up some mushrooms as a side for dinner. And for a snack later tonight I’ll be having broccoli and ranch dip.
