Cuong's Birthday

Yesterday was Cuong's Birthday. Since this month was so hectic, we didn't really do anything too big. After work I ran over to Hallmark to pick out the perfect card. That took a little longer than expected, but it was perfect. Next I made a stop a Dairy Queen to pick up an ice cream cake. The girl working there was nice enough to write Happy Birthday on the top. I decided not to have her write his name on there for fear of her inevitably misspelling it! Then I had to make a quick stop by home to pop the cake in the freezer.
Out again to Party City to pick up some balloons! I figured I could probably only fit about 8 balloons in my car and still be able to see okay out my back window!

I was able to get home in just enough time to write my sweet nothings (hehe) in the card, spread the balloons out in our bedroom and tidy up a bit. When he got home, he was a little surprised to see that I had decorated the room, but he was also excited to change and leave to go to dinner. We made reservations (through Dinner Broker ) at Rockin Baja Lobster in Newport Beach. We had been there once before, but in the Gaslamp District of San Diego. Cuong had loved that place, so he was excited to go back! It took us about 20 minutes to get there, and about another 20 minutes to find parking. We ended up parking about 3-4 blocks away!

They take your drink order and then come out with freshly made flour tortillas, their chile butter and two different kinds of salsa. Yum!

I got the same thing I did last time, Carne Asada and Shrimp. Shucks, it was better in SD! Cuong went for the king of buckets....the Bahia Del Mar bucket! It had slipper lobster tails, shrimp, snow crab legs, king crab legs, etc. Phew!

We ate out on the patio of the restaurant. It was nice at the beginning, but it got increasingly colder as the night went on. After we finished up our yummy dinner, we made our long walk back to the car and were on our way home!

Once we got home, we had some ice cream cake. Very tasty! Fudge and crushed oreo in the middle. Darn, should have gotten a picture of that! Now there's only about half of it left!

Hey, I didn't know you guys like Rockin Baja Lobster that much?!? I thought it was touristy seafood, now I feel like I want to try it. Next time you are down in SD, let's go . . .
