"It's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."

Today is my 24th birthday...Really?! It's so hard to believe. Celebrations began Tuesday when my best friend Lindsay took me out to eat at Marketplace. She is simply amazing. We had a great 2 hour dinner and talked about everything under the sun. Then shared a sinful Chocolate Mess Sundae with Peanut Butter Sauce. Jealous?
Friday after work we headed back home to Marion and went downtown for a small birthday celebration. I felt no different then, but the way I felt Saturday morning told me that I am indeed, getting older! :)
Some of the most special people came out to Alfred's and we had a blast!

Sean and I at Alfred's...Due to my outfit choice, I was referred to as Betty Boop for the night. Which is fine. Betty Boop was sexy.

The night was perfect...I will never forget the parts I remember. :)

Saturday night combined two of my favorite things: exotic food and historic homes. That's because we ate at Bhan Thai (Bhan meaning 'house') in Memphis, which is located in an old Midtown home, circa 1915.

The best historic elements have been retained: The dark wood trim and thick molding, stained glass window, original built in bookcases and hardwood floors. With the chandeliers and rich, curry-yellow walls, the atmosphere is both elegant and funky.

On this night, we ate in the central living space, where the fireplace is located. Several cozy rooms surround it. For warmer months, there's a back patio with outdoor fireplace, bar, and live music on weekends. I found myself just staring around me while we sat inside! And the food...need I go there? You can't go wrong.
