This past weekend was my birthday. I was woken up to breakfast in bed and singing from Imants and Livija. I got an Abby Cadabby birthday card, and a rice cooker/poultry and fish steamer. Time to start cooking up some Korean dishes. We went to a Korean market today to get all the necessary ingredients, and then had an authentic Korean dinner at the restaurant next door to the market. It was my first experience with Korean food, and I loved it. Livija was even loving it, much to the surprise of the waitress, who warned us that some might be too spicy for our 3 year old. She tried a little bit of everything, and even leaned over her papa to scoop some up from his plate.
I ordered the bim bim bop, because I had heard of it before (and, I'll admit it, because it's so fun to say). I'll be sure to post an update on how our first "Korean Night" goes. Maybe if it resembles an authentic meal, I'll even include some pictures.
It was a great birthday weekend. Next year's birthday, I may not have both my babies with me, but I should have a picture of the one on the way. This thought gives me some hope.

Happy belated birthday! It sounds like it was fun one. I love when little kids will try anything when it comes to food! That's great that she liked it. The name alone is enough reason for me to have tried the bim bim bop too! Sounds like a Hanson song haha

It's a nice thought that this time next year, you'll be very close to bringing your little one home;)

Happy Be-lated Birthday! It sounds like you had a lot of fun. It's great that you can got out to get Korean and then you know how it is supposed to taste for when you make it at home.
I am so happy for you and your family. I can't wait to meet the new one!
