On June 30th of this year, I turned 32.
I am almost in my mid-thirties.
How is that possible?!
It was a really good day.
I woke up to a wonderful green smoothie made by Jeff.
I hadn't requested a big "breakfast in bed" this year because I wanted to try out Joe's Farm Grill breakfast menu since we have only ever had their lunch/dinner selections.
(You get ten dollars worth of food on your birthday)
I ordered some kind of Mexican spiced meat and egg mixture that was served with mini tostada disks.
It was delicious!
When I returned from Joe's Farm Grill (yes, I went by myself), Jeff had a huge surprise for me:
This was my "Wall Of Love"
He had emailed and asked friends and family to write just a small note to me for my birthday.
It was probably one of my very favorite gifts ever.
I have such amazing people in my life and felt honored they would take the time to be part of my birthday.
Thank you Jeff for putting it all together!
Next activity was a movie with the family. I had been wanting to take the boys to see Brave and movies are one of my all-time favorite things to do.
On the way home we picked up my free donut from Krispy Kreme.
Next up -- Shopping!
You can't really see in the photo but on Jeff's note, in the center of the mirror, he had put an image of a $100 dollar bill. He let me know that he had wanted to get real money for me to spend but was confident that I knew how to use a debit card just as well as cash.
On my way out shopping (by myself of course :-) -- I picked up a free sub from Firehouse Subs.
Now I'm not EXACTLY sure on the time, but for some reason 4 hours sounds about right.
I took four hours to wander, try on, window shop, spend and just "relax" in a woman's sense of the word.
Later that night, we met up with some family for dinner at Cheesecake Factory.
Like I said, it was a fantastic birthday and I felt very special.
