This Thursday, I turned 32 - a number that doesn't really feel like my age, but that's ok because Meg pulled out all the stops for my birthday, making it feel like I was celebrating age 10 again.
Asian turkey meatballs, spicy chicken soup, and vinegar rice with peas and carrots. Yum!
Since we weren't left with much time on Thursday, Megan insisted on an extended Saturday celebration.
So after breakfast Saturday morning, she finally filled me in on our plans:
She had put together a James Bond-themed day!! - again, as if I was a 10 year old boy (which I undoubtedly am).
After playing a little of this...
"The Gadgets" box contained a new pair of tech-finger gloves and a cool collapsible water bottle.
"The Weapons" box contained an awesome pocket knife that my twin brother had suggested.
"The Attire" box contained a new bow tie.
"The Drink" box contained one of my favorite bourbons, bitters and a ginger liquor that all went together for a new take on an Old Fashioned.
I nixed some of the Bond-themed activities for some of my personal favorites, like watching our new favorite show, Archer, and eating an awesome Boar's Head sandwich, but we ended up finishing the day with a meal at our favorite restaurant, Doma, the sushi place that we rave about constantly.
To add to all of that, my sister got me a fantastic multi-tool and Meg's parents got me these great, retro patches, one of them being one of her dad's old ones! Can you tell which one?
In the end, I have to say, it feels pretty good to be 32.
