We celebrated my birthday last Sunday. It was unsure if Mark was going to be out of town this weekend so we celebrated early. (Turns out he is home) We stayed in and had a lovely steak dinner, sauteed mushrooms, mashed potatoes, corn and warm bread.
It was nice being waited on and I was also supposed to do nothing for a few days after my angiogram so it was perfect. I even had to have my steak cut up! We normally go out for our birthday celebrations but since I asked for the trip to Chicago as my gift I thought staying in would be fun.
Adam and Tristen brought me tulips and sunflowers along with Macaroons. It was my first time eating them. I don't know why I never tried them when I was in Paris 3 years ago. Mark bought me yellow roses and Amber had picked up the cute S&P shakers to add to my collection. I was also given a gift card for Hallmark from the kids.
This card from Amber was perfect!
And the card from Adam & Tristen was also too cute.
Has a little Eiffel tower hanging from the ribbon!
We had a delicious Pumpkin Streusel pound cake for dessert. I made some fresh whipped cream too!
We will probably go and get my free Red Robin burger tonight or over the weekend. I also have coupons for other free birthday things like a Baskin Robins 31 Flavors cone or a Blizzard from DQ!
I'm sorry I haven't been around much. Still not feeling well. Having good days and bad days. Had a follow up appointment with the cardiologist yesterday. He is sending me for a CT Scan today so I would appreciate your prayers.
Hope your weekend is perfect.......
