My dear, sweet husband gave me a full day of fun for my birthday! In the midst of summer school I know that was a challenge. We started out the day with breakfast at Chick-fil-A. (We had a coupon!) Then I got a pedicure and manicure... that lasted 3 hours! Which on a normal day I probably would have been absolutely tickled with... though that meant I got 1 1/2 hours less time with my hubby! = ( This was followed by a shared lunch at Tropical Smoothie Cafe completed with a Mango Moxie smoothie! (Another coupon, of course!) Then I got to do a little shopping with some "birthday money" he gave me. Which I used up mostly at Walmart and Target... I guess I even want my birthday money to stretch as far as possible! Plus that's where I normally shop and I'd already found a couple of things I was hoping to get! = ) Then off to get dressed up for a nice dinner! My husband loves food and I gladly join him in this passion. We usually eat at low budget places, but on birthdays and anniversaries we've decided to treat ourselves. Todd Jurich's Bistro, being the only 4 star restaurant in the Hampton Roads area, fit the bill. The food was terrific! Roderick, of course, got his favorite again, Rack of Lamb, and I got a New York Strip Steak. Delicious to say the least! Overall it was a wonderful day. Thanks Roderick for making my 27th birthday very memorable!
Unfortunately Roderick was the only "family" I was able to be with on my birthday. However, thanks to everyone else for the packages, gifts, cards, and most of all the SONGS! I sure got a lot of different versions of Happy Birthday this year and I loved everyone of them!!!
