Today was darling D’s birthday! To celebrate the official day, we scampered from work a few minutes early to hit up happy hour at a new(ish) New Orleans restaurant, Toulouse Petit. It was DELISH. Dungeness crab atop Fried Green Tomatoes is all I have to say. We have some photos of our meal that we’ll share in a few days time. Then, we made a brief stop at her office’s champagne and dessert party, then home to get cozy and continue the celebration.
If you know D, though, you know the celebration of a birthday during the Christmas season can’t just be limited to a couple festive cocktails. Oh no. So, two weekends ago we took a trip on the Northwest Railway Museum’s SANTA TRAIN. The deal is that you depart North Bend, take a 20 min ride up to their restored vintage train depot in Snoqualmie, hang out with Santa and some cocoa, then trek back to Snoqualmie. The train is all dolled up, and Mr. Bells the festive 90 year old caroller keeps you jingling all the way!
It was very fun, and our “Christmas Captain” enjoyed it very much.
Happiest of happy birthdays to my Lemon House roomie. Here’s to a great next year!!
