I got off after 6 hours of work since I had to go ask someone to be my officiant in person. However, I played with our little "therapy dog" Hugo for a bit. He is the cutest thing ever! He truly has puppy eyes! Afterwards, I went to go ask my lucky person if he wanted to be my officiant & he said he'd be honored to (after looking completely shocked for a minute), yay! Vinh & Annie officially have their officiant for the wedding. It's a secret until the day of the wedding :)
Our little therapy dog, Hugo!
On my actual birthday on Saturday, Vinh took me to Monterey for part of the day. We had lunch at Domenico's on the Fisherman's Wharf. I got the shrimp & crab mango tower salad *drool* We had an awesome window view of the wharf including the seals, pelicans & boats :)

Vinh: It's a pelipper (Pokemon version)!
Vinh: Oh! What are those things called again?
Seals lazying about
Look at the happily swimming seal
The restaurant gave me a complimentary scoop of vanilla ice cream in honor of my birthday! The waiter was trying to sing "happy birthday" but gave up, haha. I give him an A for effort though :P

Boats in the harbor
Vinh & I decided to go to Carmel to lay on the beach for a bit before walking around in the town. Lots of cute little mom & pop shops in town, but quite pricey. Vinh was getting tired from all the walking so we headed home so he could take a nap before dinner at Chevy's :)

Today (Sunday), I wanted to partake in the annual Art & Wine Festival in Sunnyvale. Steve joined my sisters & I for the 1.5 hours we were there. I ended up buying a strapless brown dress, four flexi8 barettes (2 for my sisters' early birthday presents) & a crystal glass nail file :)

Before leaving the festival, we got in line to spin the wheel for prizes from Macy's. Steve got a free facial & a 10-day free supply of foundation. Helen got a free facial as well. Lonnie got a free makeover & I got a free granola bar. I am the lame-o, bahahaa! However, Lonnie gave me her makeover coupon since she didn't want it. I gave her the granola bar that she traded for candy, haha.
Overall, I think I had a fairly relaxing 25th birthday & I wouldn't have it any other way :)
