My Birthday

On the 21st of October it was my birthday and I had a great day, all thanks to my wonderful husband who spoiled me rotten. This year I didn’t just get one day of birthday fun, I got TWO! Friday night Mike and I had a fantastic evening together. We went out for a delight meal and then we watched a movie which was 100% my choice! This was very exciting for me, you have to realize that normally when Mike and I are going to watch a movie there is an endless back and forth discussion on what movie we should watch or Mike will give me two choices that I can pick from. One time my two choices were Scream 4 or Fast Five. Geez thanks Mike; I was dying to see both. Anyway so the fact that I got to pick with no say from Mike was outstanding! Taking full advantage of my choice I picked Gnomeo and Juliet. The cutest little movie ever, I just loved it. I think what made it even more hilarious was seeing Mike roll his eyes at all the cute little cheesy parts. I loved it!

On Saturday Mike took me to the zoo to test out my birthday present, a new 35mm lens! I had tons of fun taking a million pictures. Patiently Mike sat around and waited as I took way too many pictures of a flower, an animal or anything else take caught my eye.

Afterwards we went out to dinner with the In-Laws; it was my Mother-in-law’s birthday as well. We went to Namskar, a wonderful East Indian place. They have the most delicious butter chicken. I ate way too much; I swear I almost burst a button! 

Then to top it all off my fantastic husband took to a play, “To Kill a Mocking Bird” I can’t say enough about the play, the acting was wonderful and I just loved how they interrupted the book and yet stayed really true to the novel. It was the most wonderful two days. I wish everyday could be like that!
