Happy Birthday to ME!

As some of you might know, my birthday was on Monday the 17th. I had a pretty good day overall I would say. I did have to go to work (wish I could've just stayed in bed and then played all day) but I did get to leave work a little early, so that was nice.

I got phone calls and cards/presents from family and friends (they started coming on Sunday and they're still continuing even today) and lots of well wishes. It was nice to be thought of on my birthday (and afterwards, obviously).

On my birthday Jordan and I met Chase, Meghan and Kate at Red Robin for dinner (my choice... I love going there for my birthday...) Anyhoo, it was nice being able to have dinner (at an actual sit-down restaurant, which J and I hardly ever do) and be in such good company. Kate was really cute, and she kept offering her bear to Jordan to give "loves" to. She even tried handing her bear to the waitress as she walked by. (She's really into giving her stuffed animals "loves" lately. It's really sweet.) She also accomplished drinking out of a straw. She did end up wearing a lot of water too, but still. She was pretty enthralled too when the waitress and a couple waiters came over with a sundae and sang me a birthday song while clapping. It was cute.

Anyhoo, after that we all went back to Chase & Meghan's where we had carrot cake (I also LOVE carrot cake) and ice cream and just visited for a little while (in between my birthday phone calls that is). Here are a couple pics from Monday.

Here is a picture of the flowers that Jordan brought me. He arranged it himself and put in some really beautiful red & gold roses along with a really pretty pink in between my favorite flower... two calla lillies.

Here's a little closer up view of them.

My mom also sent me some flowers too.

And here's a close up view of them.

Here's my cheeseball self at Red Robin.

Here's me with my birthday cake!

I shared some frosting with Kate... She was a little wound-up at this point and was having trouble keeping her balance. (Especially with the bear.)

Here she is just cruisin around with her bear.
