So I had my birthday yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised when my gang of friends showed up at my front door caroling with "We Wish You a Merry Christmas." As great as their singing was, they had arrived to celebrate my birthday, having conspired with Jen to surprise me for dinner. And a great job they did. I had absolutely no clue what was going on and I was definitely surprised. It wasn't anything extravagant, but it was exactly how I would have wanted to celebrate - spending good times with my closest friends and enjoying good food. Shout out to Sara and Kelly for finding pecan tarts here!! And to Vanessa for bringing a freshly baked strawberry bread too!! Thanks guys, you're the best!
Last weekend, we also went to Lotte World (like Disney World) for a joint celebration for myself and Richard, who had his birthday on the Sunday. So here are a few pictures from the past few days.
Vanessa, Becky, Sara, and Laina outside Lotte World. How can you not be excited for Lotte World with expressions like these? Becky's enjoying her ice cream and Sara is showing off her ticket to fun!
Note the logo in the background. Does it look familiar at all? Hmmmm...
This picture pretty much speaks for itself. Yep, that's my wife...
Richard has a very concerned look on his face. We're next in line for the Gyro Drop. I think he's scared.
Looks a lot like Disney huh?
My peeps here in Seoul. Kelly, Richard, Jen, Sara, Vanessa, and Becky. We're enjoying a very yummy meal prepared by Kelly and Jen. We had bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, spinach, and feta in a pesto sauce over spaghetti, followed by homemade strawberry bread, pecan tarts, and vanilla ice cream. Awesome! I couldn't ask for better friends. These guys are the main reason that Jen and I are having such an amazing time here in Seoul.
