B-Day Celebration Continues

According to Cheryl, one is supposed to celebrate their birthday month, not just their birth-day. I love that idea. It hasn't been a month yet, but I have been celebrating. On my actual birthday, I received several phone calls from friends, wishing me a happy birthday. Then Esther (who has a blog, but I can't get her to post on it anymore - hee hee) took me to lunch at a local restaurant that has THE BEST!!!! coconut cake! We went there specifically for the cake, but after Esther told the server it was my birthday, she brought out a brownie sundae with a candle on top. Then the coconut cake came out, and I was so full from my lunch and the brownie sundae that I could only eat a couple of bites of the cake. We shared one piece, but between the two of us, we couldn't finish it all. Esther also gave me this card,
with a check inside that cute little pocket on the left side.
On my birthday, Hubs was doing a side job in another city and didn't make it home until almost 7 p.m. Then on Friday morning he had to be at the hospital with a member of our congregation for a surgery, and left the house around 5:30 a.m. I was having myself a nice little pity party 'cause Hubs wasn't acknowledging my b-day, but when he arrived home from the hosptial around noon-ish on Friday, he brought me these
beautiful flowers and, I think the sweetest card he's ever given in 28 years of marriage. It made me cry. That night we went out for dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. Oh. My. Gosh! I ate SOOO much I thought I was gonig to be sick afterward. But I couldn't help myself, because the food is so incredibly good there. I ate SO much, that the when I woke up the next morning, I was still FULL!! O man, between the browine sundae and the fabulous coconut cake on Thursday, then the Lemoncello Creme Torte on Friday, it's a wonder by Saturday that I could even get out of bed!
Then came Sunday. Every year at church on my birthday, the congreation receives an offering for me. Plus in our Sunday School class, we always celebrate each other's birthdays. So I received several more beautiful cards filled with LOTS of cash and checks, a Micheal's giftcard (one of my fave places to shop!), and this
gorgeous hand-painted birdhouse. Oh, yeah, and another cake! This time chocolate, just one of my many favorite flavors of cake. In fact, the lady that brought the cake asked me if I liked chocolate cake. I told her I've never met a cake that I didn't like and wouldn't eat! lol Can you guess what I had for breakfast this morning? And can you guess where I've been this morning?
So the celebrating continues!
Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me-for-a-whole-month-(cause-Cheryl-said-so), {take a big breath here) happy birthday to me! TTFN
