Thank you all for making yesterday a wonderful birthday. I recieved so many unexpected birthday wishes. People that I didn't even realize that knew me were sending me well wishes. I sooo appreciate you take a couple minutes out of your day to say Happy B-day to me.

So, how did my night end? Hubby came home early & said put on some semi casual clothes & lets go to dinner. Of course I knew where we were going all morning cause he had asked me what would be a nice place for dinner & I said Olive Garden. =D We don't g o often cause it's so good it's always a good 15-30 minu. wait ... that's on the slow days. Hubby called & asked if we could get our name on the list & they told him they didn't take reservations but that we would be able to get right in cause they aren't busy until about 7 & it was a little before 5. So, we get there & there are people waiting outside for a table ... I knew it ... anyway, DH goes in for what I think to put our name on the list but he comes right back out & said lets go. He dropped the line about it being my birthday & not wanting me to have to wait so they said no problem & took us right in. I must admit ... I felt a little bad for the people we got to go in before but it did make me feel special!

OMG, dinner was so awesome! I had 1 bread stick, a small salad, a few pieces of bread chips with melted cheese on it, lasagna (didn't eat it all) and the best part ... they brought me a cake. We cut the thing in half so we could share then boxed the other half. That sucker was so rich ... I wish I would have had a glass of milk. Alas, I had to make due with my tea & water.

After dinner we headed to the mall to pick up my gift. =D Here's what they got me.

The rest I got to pick out myself!

 Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket <-- This is an awesome shampoo if you love scent shampoos like me. You can use it as bibble bath, body wash or shampoo. Now if I had long hair again I wouldn't use it for shampoo cause I would need cream rinse but since I have short hair it's great!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket <-- Some people are shoeoholics ... I'm a purseoholic. I can't help myself. I decided I wanted a new purse for the fall & I love animal print so this was perfect for me!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket <-- My fountain of youth! Since using this product you wouldn't believe how many people tell me that I still look like I'm in my late 20's. My brother who is 3 years young actually looks like my older brother. Pretty awesome feeling. Interested in this product? Patricia Wexler. I get the gift packs for anti-aging. It's about $40 but it's well worth the price & it goes a long ways. My favorite product is the skin regineration serum.  One box last 3-6 months ... depends on how religious you use the stuff!

Then we were homeward bound ... maybe boring to some but all I wanted to do by this time was snuggle in bed & watch my favorite shows. I actually got to be in control of the remote. How lucky is that?
