Yesterday was my birthday and I had a lovely day. I started the day with sleeping in and being cozy and reading birthday cards and birthday wishes online. My sister sent me this picture in a birthday email and it cracks me up! The hamster on the left looks so peeved!
Then we went to brunch at Pho Van and had tasty rice Vermicelli with pork or beef slices, and veggies and egg rolls mixed in. We've been here before and it is one of the best meals you can get in Austin I think. After enjoying our noodle bowls, we went next door to CoCo's Cafe to get almond milk bubble tea :)
It is probably no surprise to anyone that knows me, that I then went to a few pet stores to look at cute things. I had to work at 4 so I decided going to visit fuzzy creatures would be fun. We picked up some timothy hay and a new hut for the hammies and some wet food for the cats. And we picked up the softest tiny bunnies to pet.
And we visited Sophia the Two-Toed sloth at Zookeepers and got to watch her eat grapes as she wandered around her enclosure. I like her little face. And I had a little caique parrot on my head styling my hair.
Then Josh nicely took me to work so I could have an air conditioned ride. I chugged along on the train for a few hours and amused myself making balloon hats and flowers for people riding the train.
Josh picked me up around 8:30 and then we went and had late dinner of corn dogs at Der Wienerschtizel and some Tastee Freeze chocolate dipped cones.
We made to southern Austin to see a special showing of "The Dark Crystal" at the Alamo Drafthouse! I was excited the night before when I figured out they were showing it as part of their "Summer of 1982" movie event. I ended my birthday sitting in the theater watching Fizzgig and Jen and Kira run about.
Thank you for birthday wishes friends and family :)
