"i want to see lebron"
ask and you shall receive yiayia.
conveniently there was a home cavs game wednesday night on the exact day of her birthday. do you know who else's birthday was on wednesday? my sissy's, and being the wonderful granddaughter that she is decided to fly in from nyc for a mere 20 hours to surprise my yiayia for all the festivities.
my family normally always does something special to celebrate my yiayia and my sissy's birthdays (nyc, vegas, etc) - and the birthday meal always involves lobster. and just because we were having dinner at my little apartment downtown didn't mean that we couldn't still have our traditional meal.
enter my mother, super woman in the kitchen and helper of well, me. we served two trays of gigantic lobster tails, macaroni supreme (four cheeses and heavy whipping cream noodle deliciousness), fresh green beans, and caeser salad courtesy of my thea eros made the right way.
for dessert we had cupcakes from a cookie and a cupcake in tremont and they are now hands down my favorite cupcakes EVER. my sissy who's a nyc cupcake connoisseur said that they are the best she has ever had, and i'll agree. trust me, if you live in cleveland you must check this place out.
after all was said and done i couldn't get over how weirdly nervous i was about ten members of my immediate family coming over for dinner. thankfully everything was delicious and hella fun.
the fam in my living room. my cousin anthony, uncle nick, thea eros, yiayia, sissy, c-rossi, mommy, and my cousins jason, dina, and mara.after dinner we all hopped in a cab and watched the cavs (in really good seats) beat the nets in a franchise record breaking win at the Q.
so when we asked my yiayia what she wants to do next year for her 85th birthday?
"we're going to see oprah"
oprah it is yiayia, oprah it is.
