For my birthday party this past weekend, my friend Rebecca suggested the girls get together a couple of hours early so we could do our hair and make up together, have snacks and drink champagne. Best idea ever! Jeanne brought over the crazy hats while my collection consists of more sedate straw hats. We ate Rebecca's chicken laab, Debbie's chocolate cake from scratch and my "famous" instant noodle stir-fry. We were having so much fun it was hard to leave for the actual party!
