Happy Birthday Chelsea! (Part 1)

Chelsea’s 25th birthday is close to Thanksgiving, so we decided to celebrate it early! Amy, Chelsea and I dressed up and ate at Vintana Wine and Dine in Escondido. It’s a pretty fancy shmancy formal restaurant located on the second level of a Lexus dealership. Though it’s only on the second floor, there’s a great view of the city lights at night within the restaurant and outside in the patio. The whole design and layout of the restaurant is so elegant at night with the contemporary chandeliers lit up and hanging so gracefully from the ceiling.

For dinner, I had the Lemon Linguine with Fennel and Chile Chicken Breast. It had sun dried tomatoes, roasted pear onions, slab pepper bacon, basil, mozzarella, arugula, and pecorino. I enjoyed every color and flavor I took a bite of. The ingredients were all well evened out that no one ingredient was too strong or overpowering than the other.

Of course, we had dessert to celebrate Chelsea’s 25th birthday.

We shared a plate of cookies a la mode style. There was a chocolate chip cookie with chocolate chip ice cream, topped with melted white chocolate and pieces of orange peels. It sounded good from the menu and looked good in person but it didn’t taste as delicate as we wanted it to. The cookies were too hard as if it wasn’t fresh at all.

Afterwards, I gave Chelsea her birthday gift. I have to say that I really liked what I got her that I got some of the same stuff for myself…Heh. But! Because we are best friends and people get confused who is who since we look alike so much, it gives us more reasons to have the same things. Sarcasm, my friends. Sarcasm. I got her a pair maroon colored tights to go with her holiday outfits and a pair of Kate Spade earrings shaped in a black bow with gold outlining. 
Gift time!

We ate a lot and talked a lot at dinner so it was time for us to head home to get some rest for the next day’s adventure in Temecula.
