Birthday Weekend 2016
My Birthday Weekend 2016
I celebrated my birthday with my family and friend. My friend, April, stopped by in the afternoon and surprised me with a homemade dessert and fabulous gift. I had shown her another interesting dessert that I had seen while scrolling through my Facebook feed a few days prior and she showed up with it in hand. We were all able to eat it together before heading out to take our children to school. Later that afternoon, my husband and our children treated me to a movie. We saw Zootopia which I’m surprised that I really liked since I am usually not a fan of those types of movies. We came home and as I was settling in for the evening, my husband had surprised me with a beautiful layered dark chocolate creme and raspberry filled cake that was glowing divinely from all 31 candles. They sang the birthday song to me as I was making a wish before blowing the candles out. I was unsuccessful in blowing them all out in one go. We had cancelled our Saturday plans to head into D.C. for a visit to the National Zoo because of the rainy weather. Sunday was absolutely beautiful out. April and I had a date for a matinee and lunch. We watched The Huntsman: Winter’s War and dined at Applebee’s later. Thirty one feels wonderful.
