Birthday Celebrations Continued

The best thing about birthdays is that the celebrations get extended over a few days! On Saturday morning, 2 of my great friends Kim and Lisa took me for breakfast! Little Sloane, Sox’s Goddaughter enjoyed her breakfast and babyccino’s and we enjoyed our own breakfasts. We ordered the Going Greek – poached eggs with spinach and mushrooms – it was quite dry, so ask for sauce!

It was just such a lovely, relaxing morning spending time with some of my favourite girls!Going Greek BreakfastCoffeeSloane and her BabyccinoKim and Sloane DelaporteThe best nights are those that are spontaneous! That evening, my awesome friend Laura, picked me up and we headed out. We didn’t know what we felt like doing, so we decided in the car. We headed to the Ambassador for a sundowners. They were having a private function in the restaurant area, but we were told we could go down to the pool area for drinks. We happened to discover Silent Sunsets. We both looked at each other, shrugged and decided to give it a bash.

Silent Sunsets doesn’t mean you sit in silence watching the sun go to bed. You get a pair of wireless headphones that is connected to a live DJ. You get to listen to the music and still chat to your mates. It’s bloody clever for areas who might have noise restrictions.

We grabbed drinks, a deck chair and chatted/listened to music and watched the sunset.

I have absolutely NO idea what I was doing. I really hope that wasn’t a dance move. Awkward.

Laura told me about a new restaurant she had heard about, but hadn’t tried yet! It’s an Argentinian Restaurant called Don Armando.IMG_5755It was one of the best meals I’ve had in a long while! We ordered a delicious table salad, steaks cooked to perfection and sweet potato fries (a bit of a cheat.)SaladDon Armando steakIt was such a fun night and I absolutely loved all the laughter!
