Birthday Recap

As I mentioned before, I wasn't able to get my actual birthday off of work, so I celebrated the day before, last Wednesday. It's really funny how things work out... the two ladies who requested vacation time for Thursday and Friday didn't end up taking the days off after all (read: I could've had them off!). The funny thing is that Wednesday was a beautiful day with gorgeous weather, but Thursday was rainy and cold! Just goes to show that everything happens for a reason!
Brandon and I had a great day at the LA Zoo!
We were fascinated by the awkward flamingos. We even picked one out that reminded us of Izzie, it was constantly and strangely scratching its' head.
We loved the gorilla exhibit
These two were posing so perfectly for the picture
The orangutans were really entertaining! They had just gotten fed and were full of energy. A few of them got right up to the glass, it felt like one was literally looking me in the eyes! This guy gave us a peep show during his after lunch siesta lol
Since it was the middle of the week, there were lots of school groups at the zoo. Check out the detail in this kids' hair! We were impressed...
On Thursday night we went for dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. mmm cheeeeseeeecake mmm I had the white chocolate, macadamia nut and caramel cheesecake. Pretty much an orgasm on a plate.
Izzie and I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! Here she is showing you her sleepy face after all our weekend festivities! =D
