June the month of Birthdays!

So i decided to celebrate my 28th birthday in style... vincent says that 28 is the new posh. so i'm trying to live up to that. we had some drinks on the terrace at the Grand Hotel de La Minerve on friday for aperitivo. It was very elegant and had a rocking view. Everyone came to see me. i felt like a real princess. When was the last time i had to reserve for 17?!?after drinks we headed to Miraggio in Trastevere. The place was empty because people had planned around the walking tour that Bush had planned and then pulled out of last minute due to safety concerns and protesters. After dinner I managed to pull some friends into Freni e Frizioni for a Mojito and then was bid goodnight by all my well wishers. It really was a rockstar birthday. and now i'm looking forward to Peppe's (tomorrow!).
So saturday was time for another celebration... we celebrated Seb's birthday at Cortney's apartment. There was a lot of Guacamole and Tiramissu and loads of drinks and dancing. it was a pretty rad time. Cort has the best place for parties as the terrace is huge, but on the flip side the neighbors suck. and always threaten to call the cops just as we're getting warmed up... i will never be a bad neighbor. (i don't think.) Dervla, Cortney and OscarArnaud looking pretty...

Sunday we caught up with Mike and Ewa who were in town for a "lab weekend". All the kids in the high-tech molecular lab in basel went to rome together for the weekend to "get to know eachother" and play trust games... (no i'm just kidding...) we went for a walk through the castel sant'angelo and had cold beverages at the top. it was a really sunny, hot day in rome - but very lovely as well.
So the birthday weekend really was quite a weekend. now we're prepping for the next birthday... tomorrow.........
