I have had a wonderful birthday today! I had lunch at a local seafood place with Hubby, his mom and Samantha. I ate the most delicious fried shrimp! Yummy! The waiter came out with a deadly dessert and wished me a happy birthday. No one told him....I guess he notice me opening my gifts. The dessert was made with chocolate cake, chocolate mousse, cheesecake chunks and chocolate chunks. OMG....it was amazing!
I got some lovely gifts. Sammy gave me a Christmas ornament that says "our nest" and is a nest of golden wire with 3 eggs in it. I said they represented my babies and everyone said, "Awwww." I am so sappy. She also gave me a lovely music box with a "Mom" sentiment on it. Not stepmom, but mom. I was really touched.
Hubby's mom gave me a really pretty vintage bracelet that, though it is not my style, was a wonderful, wonderful gift. It belonged to Hubby's great-aunt, who died long ago, but I have heard about her since I met Hubby. She was quite excentric and quite adventurous. I was so touched that my MIL gave me a family heirloom. I will cherish it.
After lunch, and a long visit, Hubby and I went grocery shopping and to the meat market. Quite the birthday adventure, right?
I received a ton of birthday greetings on my facebook page, and have felt loved all day.
Happy birthday to me!
