Today is my day, my birthday! I'm 43 years old. It's been a great day for me. For once my brain doesn't have a dark cloud hanging over my head.
My computer died a few weeks ago & my husband went out and got me an awesome new computer earlier this week, for my birthday present. The screen is huge & I think is HD because it's so crisp & clear! The tower part of the computer is tiny, about 1/3 the size of a regular tower. I'm in love with it.
This morning I got up & went in search of my birthday cake & a cake for my youngest son Jack, who will be 15 on Sunday. I hit Sam's club & this is what I found.
It's a luscious vanilla cake (the good, homemade tasting kind) with pink strawberry flavored icing and strawberries on top. That was my breakfast.
Then since Jack was at his dad's house & Chris was working I took my 18 year old, John David out to eat for my lunch. I got a plate full of carbo-goodness in the form of a hot roast beef sandwich and french fries all covered in gravy! Superb! Of course I couldn't eat all of it because of my gastroparesis, but I loved what I did have.
JD had an appetizer plate. This is him not wanting to have his picture taken, but humoring me because it's my birthday, lol!
Then JD & I went to Kroger for a few things & I found these.
Called Whimsical Whoopies, it's like a Nilla Wafer flavored muffin top with buttercream frosting & sprinkles! Half of one of these was my lunch dessert.
After a while hanging out John David came home with his girlfriend LeighAnne and my birthday present. It was honestly something that I really never expected!
As I posted on my FaceBook, I now the proud owner of the hugest giant monkey in the history of giant monkeys!
(Terrible picture of me, but who cares, right?)
Here's Jack with my giant monkey.
Just for perspective, Jack is about 5 ft. 7 inches!
On my birthday's I try to do whatever I want for that day and reflect on my life as it stands. I am so thankful for my beautiful sons, my amazing husband, who really is my best friend, my parents & in-laws and my blogging friends. I have made some really great friends, most whom I've never met, but bloggers who I consider every bit as much my friends as any person I know in real life, so thank you to all of you!
Now Chris is here & we're catching up on the last season of Psych & doing nothing much. Perfect!
