Well, my golden birthday was pretty sunny. I decided that despite the fact that Tyler was gone at a conference all weekend, and that I'd be stuck w/the kids, including cooking all the meals myself, that I would have a good attitude. And it must have rubbed off bcse the kids were great all day! They both took long naps so I could get some work done (yes, I wanted to...I needed to solve a puzzle w/some dead people :) ) And I received IM's and phone calls all day and didn't care if they weren't w/Verizon and went over on our minutes (hope we don't too bad :) ) bcse it was my B-day!
These photos are what I ate/got that day. I made some coffee cake muffins for b-fast, then a yummy bagel sandwich. Let me tell you about this sandwich that I created. It is broiled chicken breast flavored w/herbs de Provence and fresh basil, broiled bacon, avocado, tomato, melted provolone cheese on a toasted Costco Parmesan cheese bagel smeared w/Boursin! Oh, yummy! With an Izze drink (all natural sparkling juice). And then Melanie (my new favorite downstairs neighbor who replaced Melissa--physically but not emotionally--smile--
Then on Saturday I had an audition in the morning (Thanks Leanna for watching my kids and letting me borrow your car!!!) which I wasn't called back for...."you're a good actress but..." you didn't portray the character right. Then Melanie offered to straighten my hair!! And then we (local family) went to Red Robin and then Tyler, Rose and her italian boyfriend and I went shopping. I bought a pair of jeans from the GAP!! My splurge (only bcse I had great % off ) and they didn't have my size not online or in the entire state) and that made me bummed so I bought the smaller size that fit like a glove about to pop, so I have that to work toward! To fit into my first pair of sexy expensive jeans! But I did wear my new favorite shirt that I think is flattering to my body shape and coloring (a first)! And then I was bummed again bcse "I am Legend" was out of 5 Redboxes!!!! But it all worked out bcse the night was bit quieter w/just me and Tyler!
Thank you all who called me over the weekend! It was fantastic! And thanks for the flowers Troy and Jana and the gifts (rest of family :) )And Samuel even told his primary teacher on Sunday that it was my birthday (he thinks it lasted 3 days bcse of all the events)....that made me smile inside.
And last night Tyler made me a cake we saw on Food network! Yay for chocolate! And I frosted it! Yay for pretty frosting!
So, Happy Day to myself!
