johnny's birthweek

The birthday celebration began last Sunday and ended yesterday. A whole week of celebrating my dear husband's birth.

On Sunday, after service, I took John to watch the movie Jiro Dreams of Sushi at a small theatre in Pasadena. Then we were off to his favorite sushi restaurant! The movie was great. The sushi restaurant, not so much. John was so disappointed with the food, he's now on a hunt for good sushi places! Any recommendations?


On Tuesday, his actual birthday, we went out for burgers at The Standing Room! This place is appropriately named The Standing Room, because it's a BYOC kind of place - bring your own chair! There isn't a seating area, just a counter to order gourmet burgers in the back of a liquor store! Grab and go! So awesome!



What a ham! A handsome ham!


What a creeper! A handsome creeper!


We had some truffle parmesan fries and John got the "dressed" burger with blue cheese, carmelized onions and a whole bunch of other stuff I can't remember. I, on the other hand, got the "naked" burger (pictured above). A good, plain ol' burger. YUM!

This past weekend, my sis and bro-in-law were nice enough to take us both out to celebrate AGAIN! We met up at Urbano Pizza Bar, in downtown LA.

The potato pizza with fingerling potatoes, brussels sprouts, roasted garlic, bacon (my fav), and a parmesan cream sauce.

The Easter pizza with rabbit and egg!

Then finished off the night at Seven Grand.

I think we're done celebrating his birth for this year... but now moving on to celebrating 2 years of marriage! YAY! April is jam packed with awesomeness!
