I'm 35 today!!!!

Today was a big birthday. 35. It's a weird number. It's half way to 70. I was fine with 30, but I just feel different. Maybe cause I'm on my way to 40. "How did I get here?" I am looking forward to the next 35 years, though. So, don't count me out yet!

On Friday eve, my mom, sister and I went for a little adventure. With NO kids in tow we headed to Berkely to 4th street and made it just in time to quickly browse through the Crate and Barrel outlet. I love that place. I can't wait to have my own big beautiful house to fill with that stuff. Mom bought me a cute new rug for my kitchen - a a few things for an upcoming wedding - and then we were off to the next mission.

We were looking for a little shop called - Love at First Bite. It is a bakery/cupcakery. We are doing a wedding in August where the bride is doing cupcakes on tables for centerpieces. So we just HAD to find the store and sample them. We found it in a small little shopping place, and there weren't many left, but enough for a dozen. The Lemon Kisses were my favorite.

Next mission was to find a place to eat... lots to choose from, but couldn't decide - we finally stopped at a little Italian cafe/bistro place. Had some yummy, different pizza and grilled asparagus. I think it was all pretty healthy, we could've had everything vegan, but we decided against it :)

Now to my birthday -

My sweet Rebecca made me breakfast in bed - cereal, toast w/butter and chocolate milk. Even some roses from outside. She is a caretaker.

Later I rewoke up to hot waffles, made by my sweet husband.

Off we went about 1pm to the temple pageatn at the Oakland Temple. There is a matinee so families can come with their children - never will we go to a matinee again - lots of loud, talking, crying babies, children and parents. I felt the spirit, somewhat.

Then off to Fentons!!!

We had a GOOOOOD time. Katelynn found a hair in her icecream sundae, so we got that for free. Nice, huh.
By the way, when we pulled up to Fentons, someone was pulling out and we got a primo spot - Happy Birthday to me from the Universe!!!

Dinner made by dad was bbq burgers, corn on cob and tater tots. Next was a surpise cake ~ made out of DINGDONGS~ my favorite.

I have a wonderful family and I am happy to be 35 yrs old today!!!

Happy Birthday!!!

I'm a little jealous of the Fenton's experience. How sad that whenever one of us is in town, we can never get to seeing all of the people we want to see, but we can always make it to Fenton's? Priorities! It sounds like a lovely birthday!
