This past Monday Ismail and I had a picnic by the lake to take advantage of the awesome weather we've been having. It was in the mid 80's and beautiful that day so everyone was lake-side. We brought my vintage picnic basket (I jump at every opportunity to use it!), some good food from a local Italian sandwich shop (Moroccan owned though! hah!) , cupcakes my sister had made, and Farkle - my favorite dice game.
Since Ismail's schedule is so different than mine we don't get to spend as much time together as we'd like so we have to plan our weekly dates in advance. I guess I didn't realize a chef's schedule is so hectic. I also took this opportunity to give him his birthday gift even though it's two weeks away. I just couldn't help myself! I'm terrible at keeping secrets and surprises. I get too excited to see their reaction so I always spoil the surprise early! hah! I had known what I wanted to get him for his birthday for a few months now, I just had to save up for it. I was lucky enough to score a Focus Group last week and the money from that was just enough (with some savings) to buy him an iPad! Yay! His computer crashed a few months ago and he's been using his iPhone for everything so this was really the perfect gift for him!
Hope you guys are having a great week :)
