Double trouble

#LiqMyStick :lol:

My boyfriend (Josue) and his third older sister 1He has four older sisters. have their birthdays on April 30 and May 1 but they celebrated independently because his sister was busy. I think it’s cool their birthdays are one after the other, considering they are a few years apart.

We attended mass with his parents in the morning then went to lunch with his family, and this time his second older sister came along.

Afterwards, we went to The Lost Bread at Maginhawa (a popular part of our city known for quaint restos and cafes) and ordered these two sweet milkshakes–Bonfire (smores and graham bread) and Popshake (banana pistachio popsicle). Of course he had to choose the drink which had a sexual innuendo :lol:

The birthday boy with our drinks Bonfire and Popshake.

And of course, we ate dinner at Fat Cousins’ Diner in Maginhawa also 2It’s quickly becoming our go-to place. We also spent my birthday there.. I’m so sad I didn’t get to take many photos because I always seem to get lost in the moment and forget to document everything :(

For his sister’s celebration, we ate at Chili’s and had Chewie over to Josue’s house for a playdate with Sugar and Waffle.

And today was my first day of work, accidentally. I signed my contract and proceeded to start work immediately :lol: It was okay, though because it was pretty chill. I only wrote one story and finished completing my requirements–which included my tax returns 3But that’s for another blog post, if ever I have the time and energy to rant about my previous employer..

My shift is currently 4pm-1am because I’m the nearest one to the office so getting home won’t be a problem. I’ll use Uber anyway because there are no public vehicles available at that hour :(

I hope to bring dinner everyday so I won’t be tempted to dine out 4I’m saving for a new laptop. Another story for another post. but seeing as I have a few friends working there also, we’ll probably still eat outside.

My real first day starts tomorrow so we’ll see how that turns out. Hopefully, good :lol:

P.S. Changed the layout again lmao. I re-designed my previous fixed sidebar theme because I couldn’t sleep last weekend :lol: 5If someone knows how to link to the comment box directly from the index page, kindly let me know I’d appreciate it :heart:

  1. Whoa those milkshakes look AMAZING! Seriously, so delicious!

    Man, I am selfish, so I don’t think I would ever like to share my birthday with a sibling, haha! That’s a really late shift! I hope you enjoy work though!

  3. at first i was like “sexual innuendo? what sexual innuendo?” and then i went “oh. OH, RIGHT. i see.” :lol: speaking of sexual innuendo, it reminds me of how my bf and i make so many sexual jokes out of food, most notably when it comes to hot dogs / sausage :lol: oh gahd, so immature yet so fun hahaha

    but seriously though, those milkshakes look bomb!

    @Elisa L., you know it’s true love when you can be gross together and not judge each other :lol: (I still judge him jokingly, tho lmao)

  5. Happy belated birthday to your boyfriend and his sister! Having a close birthday is probably better for the parents because they can combine the celebration and save some money XD. The popshake looks delicious!

    Hope you’ll enjoy your new work! It’s always better to bring your own food so you can save money. (If only I can follow this advice XD).

    @Nancy, thank you!
    Omg yes, I wish I could too but of course I’m too lazy to prepare and cook my own food :lol:

  7. Belated happy birthday to your boyfriend and his sister! That would be pretty cool celebrating together; although if that were me, I’d want to celebrate separately because well… I want the attention xD Kidding! Sort of! My bf’s mom’s birthday is actually the day after mine, and while we don’t celebrate, Chris & I barely go out of town on my birthday because he’s always rushing home to take his mom out for dinner. I mean, I guess that’s nice of him & all hah!

    And damn dude. Those drinks though. THEY LOOK SO GOOD but I’d probably hate myself for drinking it because they look like they’re loaded with sugar (which I’m sure they are lol).

    Anyways, glad you guys got to celebrate together and have a good time.

  15. I think it’s pretty cool when people have their birthdays close to each other (or the next day in this case) especially when they’re years apart!

    Sounds like you had an awesome time celebrating their special days! That milkshake looks delicious but for some reason whenever I try and have a milkshake, it’s always too much for me and I can only have the top bit and thats about it xD

    Don’t feel bad about not being able to document everything, being in the moment is always great – it means you’re enjoying your life! I do love documenting everything though and I think it’s programmed into me to do so before I dig into food haha.

    Good luck with work! You’re going to do an awesome job. I can’t wait to hear about it :D

  17. That’s interesting how close your boyfriend and his sister’s birthday is! Mine and my brother’s are several months apart. Those milkshakes you guys got look sooo good. It sounds like you guys celebrated with a lot of good food, which is always awesome :)

    That’s good that your first day of work was pretty chill! I’m surprised at how late the shift is though. I’ve been bringing lunch lately to work, so I can eat healthier. Some days I get lazy and eat out though!

    I hope work goes well!

    Late shifts are the bane of my existence BUT GIRL, GOOD LUCK WITH YO NEW JOB. You got this!!! 💪🏽

    @Chynna, thank you! The Bonfire milkshake was bomb! (No pun intended) :lol:
