At Justin Timberlake's restaurant on my birthday

My birthday

I was working at ITMG the day of my birthday, and because we are located on Madison Avenue (famous for high fashion and shopping), my boss allowed me to shop for a birthday outfit on my lunch break. Yes, I know I'm lucky, and yes, I love my life here. Once I found a dress for my birthday, I came back to the office, where I was presented with a chocolate cake while my coworkers sang happy birthday to me in Italian, French and English.

For my actual birthday I went to eat at Justin Timberlake's restaurant, Southern Hospitality, with about 20 friends. There my friend Molly, who happens to waitress there, brought me free appetizers and dessert. We sat at a table next to Diem and Joanna from the "Real World/Road Rules" show on MTV.
