My Birthday Unwrapped

15th April 2009


My birthday last week was awesome.  Turning 33 isn’t bad at all.  In fact, I would hardly notice I’m any older if it weren’t for my “young” husband reminding me that I’m older… at least until August when he joins me at 33!

It was quite the technological birthday… I got tons and tons of greetings on Facebook (gotta love the birthday reminders they give you!), a couple birthday texts, and a techy gift I’ll tell more about later.  I got some gorgeous flowers (bottom photo) from my Mom, Dad and Kat.


Brian and I went out to Up The Creek for a yummy fish dinner, and we came back to my long-anticipated birthday cake (recipe here) with the kids and his parents.  Wednesday evening, Lindsay brought me a piece of tiramisu cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory.  YUM!  The best gift, though, was the necklace I’ve REALLY wanted from The Vintage Pearl.  It is just as gorgeous as I’d hoped it would be!  Thank you, Brian!! (And I took this picture with the manual setting on my camera… pretty impressed with myself!)
