28 things I loved about my 35th b-day

1] having Dave all to myself
2] eating at carrabba's- it has been too long.
3] eating chicken gratella at carrabba's! Best chicken ever.
4] the garlic mashed potatoes
5] the warm crusty bread dipped in olive oil & herbs

6] Dessert Rosa...moist yellow cake with pineapple and strawberries, fresh whipped cream....mmmmmm- the perfect birthday cake
7] the free ice cream with homemade thick & rich chocolate sauce that they brought me since it was my birthday.

8] the warm and easy conversation with my husband of almost 11 years (on July 3rd)
9] having the house all to our selves for a whole night
10] our sweet friends who took the kids for the night!
11] waking up whenever we felt like it with no responsibilities
12] both movies that we saw this weekend were good (we are notorious for picking bad movies); Leap Year and Prince of Persia.

13] I had Dave all to myself
14] Barnes & Noble for breakfast (does a vanilla bean cupcake count as breakfast?)
15] a big pile of magazines to browse while eating the cupcake
16] a side trip into Old Navy
17] Old Navy's 30% off every single thing in the whole store
18] having birthday money to spend
19] the kids' cards and gifts (beaded necklaces & hand drawn rainbows and hearts)
20] having Dave all to myself (did I mention that part?)

21] that ring that Dave got for me- love it :)
22] my nice nap (the kids all slept, after being at the friends' house- and kept their mom up late, but by the time we picked them up, they were ready for a nap!)
23] the red watch with white polka dots from my parents
24] The Carol Burnett book from Gigi and Pops- she is just as funny in her writing.
25] the nice picnic we had at the park with our small group class from church - beautiful weather, good food, great fellowship (the squash casserole, banana pudding, & caramel brownies could each get a paragraph on their own)

26] Tim and Jen for all of their work on the picnic- you guys are the best activities directors ever :) :)
27] sweet cards and facebook messages and comments for a happy birthday [thank you, everyone! I now know who cares :) :)]

28] This cute apron- can't decide if I will wear it every day or hang it on the wall to look at!

Can you believe I could only think of 28 things that I loved about my Birthday? See what I mean?!?! I am only 28 in my mind!!!!

**A few more days to enter my ferm dishtowel giveaway- that bird in the bird cage towel is begging for a good home :)

Happy Birthday Sara! I had to chuckle at roommate and I have been having bad luck with movies lately too...but we really liked Leap Year. :)

Megan Walker said...

Wow, what an *AWESOME* birthday post! Happy Birthday Sara! I'm delighted it was so wonderful - you most certainly deserved it :) I loved your list - what a great list overflowing with blessings! :)

And by the way, I have a similar apron - I leave it on a special hanger (a vintage Pillsbury Dough Boy) on my pantry door because I just love admiring it way too much to wear it - LOL :D
