Had A Great Birthday!



First Thank You, to Alison, Kathleen, Debi, Lori, Carola, Michelle, Colleen, and Nancy for your e-cards and/or notes to wish me a Happy Birthday!

I had a wonderful weekend. Saturday Alan and I dropped the children off at my Mom and Dad's house. Alan took me to dinner at Milleridge Inn, my favorite restaurant. It's very colonial. Their food is wonderful. I ordered a chocolate martini ...gosh that was so good. Dinner was wonderful as well. We were going to go to the movies afterwards but for some reason I was just so tired. So instead of going to the movies we decided to just go home and relax in our quiet home by ourselves!! We decided to just change and make some popcorn and watch the movie Alan had picked up "Last Holiday" I thought it was a cute movie.

Sunday Morning, we slept in a little bit and then got up and went to IHOP for a nice breakfast. We had a couple of hours so we decided to go to the Broadway Mall to look around for a bit. I went to Apricot Lane and found a Yankee Candle that I like at 50% off and I also found some cute Valentine's Day stuff for the girls. It was very nice just having the chance to be with Alan. We get so little alone time together especially with him working so much.

We then got to my Mom and Dad's house. I enjoyed the quiet time at home but I did miss the kids. They were happy to see me. They had hung a Happy Birthday sign for me and made a card for me. My Mom made an amazing dinner chicken parm or chicken without the parm and all the sides. Then we had cake. My Mom made a devils food cake with a very good marshmallow frosting ... it was so good!! The girls decorated it and did a great job.

I got alot of wonderful presents. Alan got me the new 30gb video IPod. I love it! My son got me the Issey Miyake shower gel to go with the perfume I already have. It smells so good!! My sister Lisa and her boyfriend Darren got me a beautiful heart with diamonds and garnets (my birthstone). My sister Michelle got me the attachment to my IPod so I can play songs through the radio in the car or at home. My friend/like a sister Leanne got me a gift card so that I could upload lots of songs to my new IPod. My Mom and Dad bought me a beautiful pink sweater set a beautiful Irish necklace and lots of Bath and Bodyworks shower gels and stuff. Over all I really couldn't ask for more. I got too much!! Thank you to all of them for making my day so special. I am truly blessed!! Here is a picture of the cake the kids made me.

Today I mainly just stayed in and relaxed on this rainy day. It was nice a quiet. I also had a doctor's appointment. I had to have my blood drawn and get a B-12 shot. The doctor thinks the reason I feel so sluggish and tired is because those levels were so low. Hopefully my energy levels feel better.

Tonight we went out to dinner to the Spare Rib. It was good. I like the BBQ chicken alot and they have the best tasting cornbread. I am just sitting now and watching Medium and then I will call it a night.
