Happy Birthday to me!

Today is my birthday. I'm 31. EEK! i suppose i should be all grown up now........

Chris took me out on a date for my birthday on Sat. night. I got to choose what we did...I thought of paintball, lastertag, shooting, skating, a comedy club, or a dinner theater, but none of them worked out. So we went to a nice dinner in a nearby city. They have THE BEST chocolate cake at this restaurant. i savored every bite! & then i saved a chunk to take home, so the enjoyment could last longer. The next morning, Evy got into it & ate it all. *sigh*

After dinner, we went to a nearby mall & walked around. While we were there, Chris bought me some new jeans, since the only pair that fit me had huge holes in each knee. YAY! And then we went to get the chain on my necklace resized. (the place we buy my jewelry is in this other city). While we were there, we looked at some other jewelry, just for fun. I fell in love with a $4,000 bracelet. it was SO CUTE!!! I never thought i could like fancy, expensive jewelry, but i liked that! :) And I talked chris out of buying a hideous gold pendant for chloe that says "daddy's girl" (whew!) THEN, as we were about to leave, chris bought me a necklace that i had been looking at!!!! so fun!!! i think chris is a sucker for jewelry. --which is fun for me! :)

So... we had a lovely evening together, & i got a very fun birthday present. :)

Today, the boys greeted me with hugs & kisses & "happy birthdays". Gideon asked me to give him a quarter for "a friend" who has a birthday today, but then decided he wanted to keep it for himself. Chloe made me a beautiful picture of me & her standing on a hill & it was raining gumdrops. She also gave me a gift certificate for a manicure & pedicure that she will give me herself (eek!). :)

Tonight, we'll go out to dinner with the family. Should be fun! :)
