Happy Birthday to me!!!

Is it vain to post about yourself on your birthday? I don't know! But I am going to...

I have had a wonderful day, and it's not even over yet!

It really started yesterday, when Steve and the kids got me an amazing cake, and gave me some gifts.

Cupcake tea towels:

A bright pink hoodie: (love this, by the way!! Steve is so happy to see me in something other than black!)



Today, I woke up to breakfast in bed, thanks to my son Scott. Elise had supplied a bouquet of dandelions for the tray. Todd said that he didn't do anything, but he did give me about a thousand hugs today, so I would say he did plenty! I am blessed.

Steve was spending the day helping his brother, so I took the boys to school, and then headed to the polls to cast my vote. (And in the most recent news about today's election, it looks like my birthday wish has come true!!!)

After voting, I went out for coffee with my "Birthday Twin." Leanne was born on this day, exactly one year ahead of me. Happy Birthday, my friend!


Steve arrived home in time to pick up the boys from school.... which was wonderful because it was pouring rain. Raining cats and dogs.... Raining to beat the band! However you want to put it, it was sure coming down! On their way home they stopped to get me a coffee and some gorgeous roses! Can you see a colour theme for this year's birthday?!!! Stampin' Up! calls this colour, "Melon Mambo."


After school, we took the kids to Steve's parents' to spend the night, and we headed out to White Rock to the Boathouse for dinner. We were there exactly a decade ago, at the same restaurant... possibly the same table, for my 25th birthday, and he didn't even think of that when he was planning tonight's birthday date. But I thought it was pretty cool. 10 years ago, we were just dating, but I already knew he was "the one" by then :)


Yam fries...

Salmon, scallops and prawns, oh yum!!

The manager came out to wish me a Happy Birthday and deliver a special birthday treat!


The scene as we were leaving White Rock. It turned into a gorgeous day - it was very nice of Steve to take me away from the rain for a couple hours!!

On our way home this evening, we stopped and got a movie... so, we're heading downstairs to watch it now.

sounds like a fantastic birthday. I love your cupcake tea towel and the hoodie, share where Steve found that? lol.

Rhonda, he got them in Burlington at the outlet mall... the hoodie is from Bass and the towels from the kitchen store there.
