Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes! I can’t express enough how much I loved getting all of those comments :).
Also, I LOVED the great things that all of you have learned about yourselves this past year. You all are awesome and inspiring!
Yesterday was a great day! I started it out with a sweaty workout at the gym. I completed a treadmill interval workout similar to this one and followed it up with 20 minutes on the AMT. When I arrived home, I had flowers delivered from my dad. They are so pretty!
After showering and getting ready, I met my dad for a quick lunch at Panera. My new favorite salad is their strawberry poppyseed one. It’s delicious!
After lunch, I decided to use some of my bday money from the papa to purchase a cookbook! Yes, I bought a cookbook. It’s time I finally learned my way around the kitchen :). I can’t wait to use it!!
The rest of the afternoon I just relaxed and enjoyed being lazy, which was exactly what I wanted to do. I opened presents from my mom and brother before getting ready for dinner and got some really awesome goodies- including a new iPod nano 🙂 :). Can’t wait to put that thing to use at the gym! I’m so sick of carrying around my huge video iPod that I’ve had since high school.
For my birthday dinner the plan was to head to Haiku – a sushi and pan asian noodles restaurant downtown – but we hit a little snafu on the way there…
Oh yea, gotta love the ghetto tire look. At least it got us to dinner safe and sound :).
Dinner was delicious! The service was a little slow, but it was still a great night with yummy food and good company!
And then of course, the unveiling of the awesome birthday cake. I think I died and went to heaven when I tasted the icing 🙂
Oh yea, check out that icing thickness :). All in all, I’d say I had a pretty sweet birthday- including the early b-day dinner I had on Saturday with my dad, his fiance, and Chris!
Thanks again guys for the birthday wishes! Hope you all have an awesome Thursday!
How do you like to spend your birthday?
