In all seriousness, though, the celebrations this year were epic. Over the weekend, I ate at Benihana for the first time since high school. I had forgotten how fun it is to have food cooked fresh in front of me by an entertaining chef. Who loves me.
Another advantage to birthdays: cards and gifts!
After dinner we went to Sing Sing for private-room karaoke. Highlights of the evening include Jeff's rendition of "Poor Unfortunate Souls" from The Little Mermaid, Chris singing "Complicated" by Avril Lavigne, Ruby with SWV's "Weak," Burke hamming it up on "Dang Me," and my duet with Beth: "Steppin Out."

On Sunday, we went to Rockaway Beach to enjoy some sand and saltwater.
For my birthday dessert, my friend Kim (a talented baker) made me some delicious cake pops! Sooooo gooooood...
