I'm not going to lie, being back in NYC with lab and deadlines isn't so fun, but the transition was made easier since I'm celebrating my birthday this week!
Monday I woke up to this lovely little chocolate cake from my roommate, it was amazing, chocolate mousse with carmel and nuts on the bottom, I think...in any case it was delicious!!
That evening I had a small/intimate celebration and was told not to do anything, which is a hard task for me. I survived by sipping on wine and eating aged gouda cheese (my favorite) and watching the dinner preparation.
On the menu, calamari and swiss chard:
In other news, after writing the post about best dance videos I've become somewhat obsessed with Ciara, particularly her dancing.
But there could be worse obsessions...
Happy Hump Day!!
