Saturday was the fifth anniversary of my 29th birthday. My family really went out of their way to make this birthday very special for me. The entire weekend was a big birthday extravaganza!
On Friday, I went over to Anna's and we ate my favorite salad from California Pizza Kitchen and watched "Big Daddy". We had a super fun great wonderful time. I love my sister!
On Saturday, I woke up to breakfast in bed complete with a candle for me to blow out. The kids decorated the house with streamers and posters. They used a lot of yellow which is my favorite color.
Saturday night Chris took me out to dinner to BW3 and we ate my favorite chicken wings and I got to play their trivia game. I love that trivia game. It was so fun! We went home that night and had fabulous lemon pie for dessert. Thank you, Stacie!
On Sunday, Anna, Tony and Lucy came over for dinner. She made a super baked potato bar. It was fun! I even had birthday paper plates. I got several bags of dollar store gifts from the kids. They all know my favorite things to get me like refrigerator magnets and anything yellow. Anna and Tony got me a set of "Little Miss" books and an awesome appetizer cookbook. I can't wait to try it out! Chris got me an entire box of Reece's Peanut Butter Cups. That's 72 cups. I laughed when I saw his gift! He is sweet. And must not care how fat I get.
My cake was so awesome! Chris likes to get me a cake with a picture of something from TV that I am really into. Some previous cakes have been, "The O'Reilly Factor" when I was obsessed with the 2000 Presidential Election and "Law and Order." This year my cake was Simon Baker from "The Mentalist." Almost too pretty to eat!
This truly was one of the best birthdays I have ever had! Thank you, Family, for making it so great!
