HaPpY bIrThDaY tO mE
A big THANK YOU to my family and friends for making my birthday so special. I was totally pampered and spoiled:
Friday: Jay had flowers delivered to me at work. Thanks babe! Went to Purple Cafe with Danny, Erica and Jay. And since I am a Piper-girl I have to tell you about the food ate (we ALL LOVE talking about food). We each started with a flight of wine. Yummy! We ordered a Baked Brie appetizer that was served with crackers, walnuts and grapes. I ordered a Blackened Prawn salad that had HUGE chunks of avocado in it. Enough said. Too full for dessert (amazingly true!).
Saturday: Woke up early to a sunshiny morning with the birds chirping! Yeah, it's my birthday! Melaine, Jay and I washed our cars. Jay weed-whacked my entire backyard. For those of you who have seen my backyard, you know that this is truly an amazing feat. For those of you who haven't seen my backyard, allow yourself this visualization: grass up to your knees. Gross. My mom and dad came over and we all drove down to Maggie Bluff's for lunch (under Palisade Restaurant in Magnolia). I decided since it's my birthday, I'd drink a few mojitos during lunch. Why not?!? After said mojitos, I went home and took a nap (guess you can't drink like that when you're 32 years old!). After refreshing nap, we all went to La Palmera to watch my brother's video premiere. Very fun.
Sunday: Woke up early again, did quite a few hours of yard work, ran errands, did more yard work, took a nap, went to mom and dad's house to have cake and ice cream. Fun.
So ... I pretty much ate, napped and yard worked during my birthday weekend. My three favorite things.
Life is good!
