|Noelle, Me, Laura, Linds and Alex|
We shared stories, old & new, talked about kids & life, laughed...a lot - and pretty much closed the place down! I didn't want it to end. I noticed after the cleared all our plates, that they brought out these smaller plates, and wondered what we were eating next...we were all so full, and I didn't hear anyone order anything... so I thought maybe there was some thai dessert served with each meal, regardless.
Then, mid-convo, I noticed one of the waiters walking towards our table, with a large plate and shielding the front with his hand...there was a candle.
Then...on the speakers (one was right in the upper corner behind me), came the "happy birthday" song...
I thought to myself, "oh my god...whose birthday did I forget!??" But all eyes were on me.
Holy crap...this is for meeee!!!
My birthday is not until Nov. 30, but these wonderful ladies surprised me with a little early celebration dessert. This dessert was a generous scoop of smooth, creamy coconut ice cream, surrounded by tasty little fried banana bites. Heaven. As my face reflects below:
Oh, and speaking of banana...here's a pic that Alex's husband Mitch insisted I take before we cut into it. I made this for us while visiting...it was scrumptious and SO easy...love this Banana Banana Bread!!!
