Our final weeks are turning into quite the social whirlwind. I'm trying to see people before I go, and Dave is caught up in a whole slew of end-of-school activities and parties. We literally have something happening almost every day until we leave.
Last night some of Dave's coworkers and former coworkers came over for dinner. It was our final opportunity to play host, given that all our dishes and pots and kitchen utensils are going to be carted away on Thursday. Dave made shrimp in a beurre-blanc sauce, braised beef short ribs with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli, and lemon creme brulee for dessert. Fab!
Also, Dave's birthday falls right smack in the middle of all this activity. (It's tomorrow.) He's pestering me to buy him an Aston Martin. Dave, if you're reading this, take note: NOT going to happen. I do have a birthday plan, though!
