I had a wonderful Birthday. It started with a friend calling and waking up my Hubby and me. He was calling to sing me Happy Birthday. Hubby was awake now so we had breakfast in bed, breakfast burritos. I love Mexican food so this was a nice start for the day.
After breakfast I got on my computer and checked my email. There was a sweet note from my middle son wishing me Happy Birthday. After reading that I logged in to Spark People like I do every day, but this was not like everyday. I had a ton of Spark goodies sent to me and many comments wishing me happy birthday. This made me feel so loved. I then started checking in with my many Spark Friends on my Spark teams. I got more wishes for a happy birthday.
Hubby was taking me out to chinese lunch so I got in the shower and then got dressed. I was wearing my new dress that I had just bought. It was a size 12, not bad for a gal who's last dress was a size 20. My dress was black, white and gray with a big silver jewel on the neck line. As it was only 52 outside I worn it with gray leggings and a gray jacket the same shade as the leggings. Hubby said I looked hot, and he was not talking about the temperature.
We walked to the restaurant and had a nice lunch. We ordered the same meal we always have so I knew what was coming. We started with Hot and Sour soup, I had only one small bowl even though it is my favorite soup. Next came one egg roll, one pot sticker and one cream cheese stuffed wonton. Hubby did not like the pot sticker or wonton so I hate the other half of his. Next we had chicken chow mein, general chicken and kung pow chicken. I only ate a little serving of every thing but took seconds on chow mein.
We had a nice walk home and hubby told me he had to go to the drug store when we got home. I took off to the supermarket, a nice 30 minute walk, to work off some of the calories from lunch. When I got home I got back on my computer and logged in to Spark People. There were more Spark goodies and birth day wishes.
Hubby came home soon bearing a gift for me. He had bought my favorite candy and said the whole box was for me. I set down and opened the box, there was all that sweet goodness just for me. You only have one birthday a year and I was going to enjoy myself. I paced myself so I would not get sick. Through out the evening I ate every piece I wanted. But I only ate half the box.
I want to thank everyone for helping to make my birthday wonderful. Thank you.
