My birthday dinner was way over the top - deliciousness abounded. No, I did not stick to my Paleo diet, it was my birthday - and apparently everyone else's birthday at Flagstaff House as well. My bf and I had a good laugh when we realized there was someone at each of the four tables surrounding us celebrating a birthday dinner. It's apparently "the place" to go on your birthday. Although I didn't restrict myself in terms of food, I did enter everything into the food tracker - holy cow! Almost 1400 calories for drinks, appetizers, the main course, and dessert!
I dressed up and curled my hair and wore a blue velvet sheath dress I haven't worn since I was 23 - and I looked pretty darn fabulous, although I must say, it's hard to keep up with a younger, hotter bf ;) He looked ridiculously gorgeous in a suit and tie. In all honesty, I thought there was a possibility he would propose (which is why I went to all the effort of actually putting on jewelry and taking two hours to do my hair and make-up), but alas! He did not. I think that he will, eventually, but he's obviously not on my timeline, which is ok. I think turning 38 has somehow made me feel a lot of pressure - getting married and having a family, things I haven't really wanted or paid attention to are now kind of looming, all the time, in the back of my mind. I need to just cool it and enjoy what I have, which is an awesome relationship with an awesome guy, and just let the rest work itself out.
Anyway, it's Friday, and I am SO looking forward to this weekend! First, bf's family is in town, so we get to spend some time with them tomorrow, AND, there's a CrossFit competition in Louisville that we are going to go watch - should be very fun! Then, Sunday we are going to Glenwood Springs, where bf rented a suite at the lodge and got us a spa-package for my birthday! Love it! Love him!
This is NOT going to be a week where I reach my weight loss goals, but hey, life happens, sometimes. And I'm ok with that.
