Happy Birthday to Me!
Well, I turned 35 this year! Freak! I'm OLD - but most everything is in tip top shape these days thanks to starving and working out like a fiend, so what the heck. Anyway, I woke up ALONE on my special day, as my darling was out of town on business. Boo hoo - yes, but what a genius I married (I love you, honey!) - he had the insight a week earlier to have bought, wrapped and shown Tiffany where the gifts were stored, so she could retireve them for me on my birthday morning. Amazing - where did I get him from? I suck at that kind of thing. I'm still promsing to make up Father's Day for him and that was three weeks ago. I have the gifts, just need to wrap them and...............I digress. Okay, so spoiled with a brand new phone and a new Zune for me to go running with. I'm a cheese and sing while I run - everyone stares and I don't care - I'm so happy I can even run! At 9:00AM Grandma came over to watch Natalie while I headed to my special birthday massage appointment. On the way home, I picked up Tiffany after school, where I was presented with chocolates and flowers from my dear friend, Cathie! After that, it was time for Tiffany and Natalie to take me out to our favorite teahouse, Taste The Moment, in Redmond, where we played tea party. We love the owners, Toni and Dick! The food is amazing and they take such good care of us. You MUST visit them. They had even anticipated my arrival (I told them I was coming a week before) and gave me a balloon and card and made my day even that more special. While driving up to the house, speaking to a friend who had just called to wish me happy birthday, I spied balloons and MORE chocolates and flowers on my doorstep from my friend, Monique, and squealed with delight. I have incredible friends~! After that, it was time to drop the girls off at Gpa' and Gma's house for a sleepover (their gift to me - thanks guys!) and run to play with friends at my favorite hang out - Pegasus Pizza and belt out some tunes with my brother and his girlfriend, Maria. It was a great day! Thank you to everyone who made it special and memorable!
