Last night a group of us got together to celebrate my girl Bettina’s birthday. Brian blind-folded her and brought her into the Lotus Pond where we were all waiting to yell surprise. The funny thing is… Every year Brian has a surprise party for her *laugh* and every year she’s surprised!! 🙂
I like going out for dinner with my hubby… The gang was all there…
I had a custom comic made for Bettina’s birthday… she was very excited.
And then we ate… Mock Duck.
Oh dear lord… Veggie Chow Mein. Sweat and Sour Mock Chicken Balls. (Sweat… *laugh* Oops. Typo on the menu).
Pot Stickers. Won Ton Soup…
There was tons more food but that’s all I managed to get photos of before it was inhaled. *laugh*
Then we headed back to Bettina’s crash pad where we ate the GIANT double layer birthday cake I made from HIAV. Auntie’ Bonnie’s Wacky Cake for those of you who are curious.
That Bettina… never misses a photo-op. Put a fork in me…I’m stuffed.
and i left before the cake!.. how unlike me… it looked delicious. but you can tell gerry that since i left early, i was able to pick up WORLD OF WARCRAFT!… and he thought i wouldn’t.. hmph.
ooohhh lucky you i love the Lotus Pond, the sweet and sour mock chicken balls are so good. Last time i was there i took some for the plane ride back to the Peg but ate them before i left the airport.
It looks like the cake says “Claire” and you said her name is “Bettina”…
One of those is her stage name. 🙂
mmmmmmmmmmmmmh, lotus pond! love that place.
the b/day cake is beautiful!!!
i need to make one next week for someone and fly it out to cologne. need to practise my cake decoration skills, my writing on cake skills suck. badly.
oh, and happy belated birthday to bettina/claire!
wow the food looked delcious..I wish we had restaurants like that on P.E.I..*sigh*
I wish we had restaurants like that in Burlington. I used to love Won Ton soup. And those mock Sweat and Sour chicken balls look great. So does the Chow Mein. The topper is that cake! Mmmmm…chocolate.
