Roommate's 21st

My life is lacking right now because I have no photoshop. It went
with the death of my computer. Thus, all these pictures have no edits.
I must admit that it hurts a little not to at least enhance the contrast.
Despite that-
Behold, the Roommate's 21st Birthday:

Breakfast in bed.
(At the Hilton no less where they give you 6, yes SIX, feather pillows
to sleep with, or cuddle, or throw, or just hug out of sheer love.)
Sadly, I must admit this is the first time I've ever had breakfast in
bed. I think its about time that someone spoils me and I'm passionate
about that. It was the Birthday Girl's desire and because it was her
birthday, breakfast in bed for the house. Yes.
Olympic Park in Salt Lake City home of the 2002 Olympics.
Highlights: large zip lines, some fast tube thingy, being somewhere where
lots of famous people once were, and the watching the next Olympians practicing.
Oh, and we got to sit in the bobsled.
(Truthfully, the only sport I watch during the Olympics is ice skating and not
even much of that. It doesn't seem right to me to watch others have fun.)
And the best part of the whole trip: The Roof.
As in the roof of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building.
As in the best food I've ever eaten in my life.
As in I wish I was bigger the first time in my life in order to take more in.
And when it was all done I wanted to start over
Divine. Delicious. And so very expensive.
I documented the experience because let me tell you it was worth
documenting. I always thought it was a bit rude to post pictures of
food up that no one could actually eat, but let me tell you, I want to
remember this meal forever.
(Tried flan. I was really excited because they talk about it all the time
on food network. Food network makes me want to eat good, good food.
And the roof is good, good food. But not the flan. You can save room for the
mint chocolate cake, which is heavenly. Truly.)(Aren't chocolate covered strawberries just romantic?)
I was a very spoiled girl and it wasn't even my birthday.
But Roommate and I bonded and I think she kind of likes me.
I did wish her Happy Birthday!

Tara said... I'm hungry. And craving chocolate. And I don't have any in my house. Thanks.

Aw, it looks like it was such a great time! I'm glad you were finally able to eat breakfast in bed. :) I love lots of pillows!

And I'm hungry now! :)
