thirty-five and still alive

I've been trying for a few days to put this post together about my birthday, but honestly, it was so low-key and tame, there's not much to write about.  :p

I started my new job that morning, just a short while for training.  While there, I found my van decorated as such:


Pretty impressive being that Dan didn't even have the address of where I work.  Fun surprise.  Then I met up with him at Kohl's (and he had accidentally met up with Chris) so we all shirt-shopped for an hour or so.  I got this for Dan, knowing that I'd mostly be the one to wear it.  Hee-hee.


We then headed out to the new Japanese Tempanyaki place in town (yum!); we were the only ones there, since it was the middle of the day, and our chef didn't do a ton of tricks, but he was very personable and chatty, friendly and nice.  And the food was terrific.

Later, Chris brought over some fun gifts for me, and I got lots of nice emails and calls from all of you.  Thanks!

We rented some movies for us to watch later on ("Killers", which was stupid and I don't recommend, "The Backup Plan" which was ok, but predictable, and "Furry Vengeance" which was pretty funny), and I made fry bread for dinner. 


A week or so ago, we bought a laptop that's gonna have to serve as both our birthday presents I think, so there was no big gift opening or birthday cake.  Ethan was shocked.  "What?  No cake??  You have to have birthday cake on your birthday!!"  So, during the movie, we made a donut run.  My day (as usual) was all about the pleasures of food.  *smile*

Thanks, everybody, for easing me into middle age gently, gracefully, and full of love.  :)

35? You are still a baby! Where do you work? I guess I need to catch up on the posts. I've missed a few days. I'm getting a few things on my list done though. Happy belated birthday!
