Happy Birthday to Me!

So happy and relaxed!

Griffin also enjoyed Dada's raspberry pancakes!

My best friend


The Allen's on a walk

Yesterday was my 31st birthday! For those of you who don't know, I have a bit of a standard for my birthday. One day a year, I don't want to make any decisions. I don't want to do housework. I want to be indulged. I want to be taken care of. Well, Matt really outdid himself this year. I had the best day I've had in so very long. I was literally stress free and relaxed for 24 hours!
I haven't been able to say that in years!
My day started out with Matt getting up with Griffin so I could sleep in. My wake up call was Hot Chocolate with Whipped Cream! Yum! After SLOWLY getting up and out of bed (which was delicious, as every other day I have to rocket out of bed, shower, hair, makeup, clothes, work work work!) Matt made killer raspberry pancakes for breakfast! While eating breakfast, Matt took care of feeding and playing with Griffin. Soon after, Griffin went down for his morning nap and Matt and I lazed on the couch, watching one of my all time favorite movies "The Love Letter", with Kate Capshaw (not the one with Ryan Gossling). After Griffin was up from his nap and was fed (which Matt took care of everything in that department while I stayed on the couch!), we went for a walk! It was the most perfect, crisp Fall day. The sun was warm on our skin and the air was so crisp that when you breathed in, you could only smell air.
Matt and I then got gussied up for my surprise! I had an idea on where we were going and if I was right, it was going to be amazing! After dropping Griffin off at my mother's I found out....I was right! Wa hoo! Matt took me to The Melting Pot on Delmar! I've always wanted to go there and the atmosphere, music, service, and (most importantly) food was all better than either Matt or I could ever have dreamed of! We had good wine, great conversations, awesome belly laughs, and even a few "I'm so happy, I'm spilling over!" tears (by me).
So, thank you a million times, babe.
You made my birthday completely unforgettable and amazing.
I love you so much!

Awww, what a great day! Sounds like you got spoiled! Isn't it funny how when we get older, all we want are the most basic luxuries for our birthdays? Like time to ourselves, to watch a good movie or go for a walk? Ahhhh! The simple pleasures in life! Glad you had a great birthday!!
