Easter Feaster

Tonight, I have the birthday sighs. It's been an eventful weekend, but now I'm alone and kind of sad. You know, it's kind of like when the circus leaves town.

Friday morning, Arica and I met Emily at a new French cafe in Brentwood, specializing in crepes. The Perch is a small, but equipped with two very large crepe griddles behind the counter. I think they've got a few kinks to work out with their crepe ingredients, but the buttered-cinnamon-sugar pastry I ate was oh-so-melty. I'm tickled to see a place like this in Nashville!

Friday night, Siebe and Aubree took me to dinner for my birthday at Ombi over on Elliston. We ordered an a pitcher of sangria, an assortment of tapas, and two desserts to top us off. After dinner, the three of us made our way over to the Ryman to see Bret and Jemaine of Flight of the Conchords live. The opening act was a surprise, as Kristen Schaal, otherwise known as "Mel" on FOTC, took the stage in gold-sequined shorts. I was hoping for a Murray appearance too, but Bret and Jemaine were hilarious enough to keep us happy.

Saturday, I spent a leisurely time shopping with mom and grilling with dad. Dad grills the best hamburgers. There's just something about being at home just being.

This morning, my trio of roommates greeted my bed head with the grandest birthday tradition of them all, chocolate chip pancakes. The parentals picked me up for Easter Sunday church service, and afterward, we took some pictures with the gorgeous tulips at Centennial Park. Mom made a delicious Easter brunch and then she and I watched Marley & Me while Dad watched the rest of the Masters. It was a lazy Sunday afternoon, otherwise known as the best kind.

I got home a little while ago from Siebe and Aubree's, where the three of us feasted on Easter dinner as "family." Siebe prepared a sugar-smoked ham and savory twice-baked potatoes, and Aubree a sweet and salty pretzel salad.

It strikes me how much my Easter weekend revolved around food. And after reading this again, I'm not so sad anymore. I'm so appreciative of the friends and family that made me feel special this weekend for my birthday. I'm full.
