Yesterday was my 37th (what? really? how did that happen?) birthday. I booked the day off work and spent the day filled with everything I love. Want to see how it went?
5:30am - alarm went off. Went to my regular 6am Greco class. Yes, on my day off. Yes, on my birthday. Afterwards I was a sweaty smiling girl. Oh, and whoops... apparently I walked out with their towel.
Next up, home to see my boys. Here's one of them.
My mom always used to tell me that homemade cards were the best, I thought she was just saying that (she was a single mom for a long time so we didn't really have anyone we could get to buy us birthday cards so we always made them - right up until... well, we still do!). And now I fully understand how wonderful and special a homemade card is. Keep 'em coming boys - forever!
The boys went to school/daycare, the husband went to work. I drank a cup of green tea and I put my feet up (literally) and started to watch the series finale of House.
Moshka yoga down the street inviting me to a free yoga class on my birthday. Heck ya!
Then - showered and dressed to go to lunch with my husband. My hair is frizzy, I know. It was raining but humid - the worst combination for my hair!
The Village Cafe and it was oh so good.
First stop, my first lululemon purchase! Jeff had bought me a sweater two years ago for Christmas that I returned and still hadn't spent it!
face wash and serum. I stopped for my favourite drink of all time (non-fat chai latte)
To David's Tea where I bought Forever Nuts. And then - the one place I had to go, despite no gift certificates....
Where I bought Nars Orgasm blush (it's the best blush ever).
Then off to pick up the boys and head home.
I didn't feel like cooking, so we ordered a grilled vegetable pizza from this little restaurant, and it was just what I was craving.
And for dessert? 1 piece of new york style cheesecake, with caramel sauce. Does my husband know me or what? I shared 1/2 with my boys, and then enjoyed the last half all to myself. In order to do this, I bribed them with popsicles :)
After the boys went to bed, I gave myself a pedicure, got a cup of my new tea and sat down and finished watching the series finale of House (loved it)
And that my friends - was how I started off my 37th year. It was perfect.
