Another Year Older
Yesterday I turned 29 and it was a wonderful day. Thanks Honey!! I got to open presents first thing in the morning (a great start), and I love all of them, especially my self cleaning fish bowl!!! Best thing EVER!! Can't wait for it to be ready to put the fish in. I also love my new books, vase, and thimble curio cabinet.
Paul took me out to breakfast & since it was my B-Day I was able to justify chicken fried steak & hash browns--sooooooo Good!! Bowling was next on the list. It was lots of fun. I wish we did that more often, I really need the practice and I love it. My best score was 77, so there's plenty of room for improvement. On our way home we went to Pet Smart to buy our new pets, we got two Calico Goldfish (I think), they had the most personality. Once we got home I set up the bowl thinking I could add the fish right away & we have to wait 24 hours for the filter to be ready--poor fishees!!
While I was taking care of my tank Paul was baking me a cake. He made a flourless chocolate cake that had pecans in it and topped it with homemade whipped cream made with Splenda. It was really, really GOOD!! You couldn't even tell he didn't use sugar in the whipped cream, or the cake. Paul was determined to make a healthy birthday cake & he did an awesome job, thanks Sweetie!! Pictures are below. Went to a new place for dinner (can't remember name), it was very nice, and the food was great. I have to admit I couldn't wait to get home and have some cake!
