Bday #45 – Restful and Appreciated

My 45th birthday was restful and sprinkled with special birthday moments throughout the day by Jackie, Atom, and Marie – thank you guys, you’re the best. 

My day started with a day off from work, a tradition of mine. I was surprisingly awakened with an early morning birthday song and gifts. I opened my new all black Nike Roche shoes and nice looking black shirt. After a short lived rounds of groggy birthday hugs we quickly had to jump into “get ready for school mode”.  

To make a long story short, the hours during the morning and late afternoon was a big blurr but i know I watched TV, read a book, and some social media surfing and eventually got ready. 

The family birthday festivities reconvened after Jackie and the kids got out of school. I decided on  Cheesecake Factory for my birthday dinner. We all ordered our favorite, steak Diane. Marie and I add shrimp scampi. After a satisfying dinner we went to the mall for a while and headed home. We stopped by Baskin Robbins for a final celebratory ice cream cake just in time for Modern Family and Blackish. Unfortunately Modern Family was not showing so we ended up watching the highly anticipated Genius series about Albert Einstein on the Histoty Channel. I was not expecting and disappointed on the racy scene at the beginning, not kid friendly. 

Anyhow, my birth day was restful, enjoyable, and appreciated. Thank you Jackie, Marie, and Atom for another awesome celebration!!
