My sister and mom traveled up the turnpike to visit for the day on Saturday. We had some lunch at one of my favorite local pizza joints, Danny Boys. After stuffing ourselves silly we braved the beach and spent some time at Huntington Beach on Lake Erie. It was SO HOT that day and very crowded, but still lots of fun.
I started off the day yesterday (my actual birthday) as I do every year- an 8:00 AM "Celebration of Me" dance party. This year's playlist featured "What Would You Say" by DMB, Captain Zoom's Birthday song, and "In Da Club." Go shorty, it's your birthday, we gon' party like it's your birthday... The dance party woke up my husband who was trying his hardest to sleep in (despite me jumping on the bed). He resisted for a little while, but I finally got up in time to treat me to breakfast at my favorite little creperie. We ran some boring adult-like errands, sat around for awhile, and later went to see "The Time Traveler's Wife." Figured I better get him to go on my b-day when he couldn't say no to me-ha! We finished off the day with dinner at Salmon Dave's and came home to relax. He also got me some great gifts- a new rug for the family room, some cute clothes that I picked out the day before, and a gorgeous new watch (I lost my old one). I felt spoiled- and I loved every bit of it. The celebration continues at dinner tonight with the in-laws. Then I will officially be eating salad for a month to recover from this weekend- ha!
I woke up today when the alarm sounded, and realized that I can no longer live in denial that I'm in my thirties. Really, it's not so bad. Here's to another year!
