My dessert: I wanted something CHOCOLATE! So, I had this...

Rich chocolate cake with warm center topped with
Vanilla Bean Gelato and chocolate syrup
Russell's dessert: He tried a variety of crème brûlées...CREME BRULEE DOLCHINO TRIO
A sampling of three different flavored housemade crème brûlées –

With the fun news of expecting a BOY and all the pampering from my sweet hubby, I'd say I experienced a perfect day!
"Thank you, Russell!!! Happy Anniversary, and it's been a WONDERFUL first year of marriage! We've got another eventful year ahead of us, and I absolulutely look forward to spending the rest of my life with you!"
I love you, girls!!
"Thank you, honey!!" (Although the real reason he probably tossed it is because it was dying. I mean, what do you feed a scorpion?!?! Never mind, I don't want him to know! :))
Nathan's features are perfect! I especially love his little mouth! I think he gets it from Mama! :)
I'm still in such awe of my best friend having her baby! "Way to go, Ashley! As you well know ;), I am so proud of you! I love you guys!!"
"Happy Birthday, Mama! I love you!"
P.S. Thank you, Soraya, for the pics!
