33 years

On September 1st, I turned 33 years old. I had a wonderful day! We woke up and had strawberry crêpes for breakfast (I made them the night before). Then I went back to sleep - it's my day, right?! I met some friends at my favorite Mexican Restaurant for lunch - so much fun and delicious food. Yum. After the kids came home, we did some cooking for dinner. I made my recipe for chicken parmigiana alfredo. The kids wanted to help me pound the chicken, so that was fun.

After our scrumptious dinner, we had dessert. My "cake" this year was those mini chocolate eclairs + some chocolate covered strawberries from Edible Arrangements. Yum. Then it was present time! I requested four things this year: another pothos plant to match the one that I already have on the entertainment center, a clock to replace the one that died in our kitchen (I still look to see what time it is and that wall has been bare for 3 weeks now...), a mortar and pestle for cooking, and a pair of scissors for cutting hair. I got 3 out of the four (Tyler couldn't find a mortar and pestle) and I was a happy birthday girl!

After the kids went to bed, Tyler & I watched some HOUSE. Then I had made a romantic music playlist (I've been into Chicago/Peter Cetera lately) and I lit some candles and Tyler & I danced. It's been so long since we've done anything like was nice. I had a great birthday!
