Birthday Fun

Friday evening we went to our local Mexican joint (“the chips and dip store”) to eat an early dinner because we were all starving and I didn’t want to cook.  After dinner, I ordered the brownie supreme thing because it was my birthday and everyone needs some form of chocolate brownies on their birthday.  When it gets to the table there are two cherries on top that are quickly grabbed by the children to get shoved into tiny mouths.  At my feigned insult at not getting a cherry, “Hey!  Don’t I get one, it’s MY birthday!”, I get this response from Colin, “NOPE, that’s not ’til tomorrow!!” and then he quickly shoves it in his mouth and chews as fast as he can.  I would love to say that is so Alan’s child, but alas, that’s definitely a trait from me.  Not going to lie, it did make me a little proud.  

The older I get, my birthdays seem to get less…important?  No, that’s just silly.  Less….I don’t know.  There’s a word I’m looking for but I’m only half way through my second cup of coffee so my brain isn’t quite working yet.  My birthday was low key and awesome.  Probably helps that I started the day with alcohol.  That always helps.  

Alan made me pumpkin pancakes and they brought me breakfast in bed.


While I was waiting on breakfast, I got this in my email.  So.funny!

Next stop was Oliver’s soccer game.  They didn’t win and Oliver got a kicked ball to the chest, but Gramme was there to watch it and he had fun.

Mom took the kids from soccer so Alan and I got to go on a sushi date.  We don’t get kid-less dates or sushi near enough.


After sushi, we got cake balls.  I was sadly disappointed that the red velvet one didn’t taste anything like red velvet.  Maybe it was because the cream cheese icing was missing.  Maybe they just don’t know how to make red velvet cake.  I got more bubbly wine, though, so in the scheme of things the cake ball wasn’t really that important. 


For dinner, Phillip and Hillary came out with us to our local wing place.  Don’t worry, I don’t have any more pictures of food.  They gave me a sifter since I didn’t have one.  Not quite sure how that’s worked, but I have one now and I’m probably way more excited to use it than I should be. 

And now I’m boring myself with my uninteresting birthday day, but I had fun.

    So sorry we couldn’t make it. I was so in the mood for wings and Stacey abuse (both giving and receiving)! Glad you had a good time anyway.
