Back as promised

I am stuffed. Dinner was SO good! We went to the Senora Grill. It is a new restaurant that is part of The Junction development in Ogden. The menu is authentic Mexican food with a lot of yummy, and surprisingly healthy choices. The guacamole was excellent, and they prepare it for you right at the table. The literal icing on the cake was when they gave me a free dessert for my birthday. I have no idea what this delicious concoction was called, but it involved fresh mangoes, vanilla whip cream, and tiny fried tortillas dipped in cinnamon sugar. YUM! I guess there are perks to turning 30 (well, I think I would have gotten the dessert anyway, but I need to work THIRTY in there some how...) So go to Senora Grill. Good stuff. I hadn't planned on the free dessert, so there was pie waiting for us after dinner, and who turns down pie?? If there was ever an occasion for 2 desserts, I think it is your 30th birthday. :) We ate up the fresh strawberry, but there is still some razzleberry left. Breakfast perhaps??

Now to the pictures. I didn't really open any gifts today. I did open a few cards, including a few really great home made pop up ones from the girls. Janelle gave me my gift while I was in Canada. Her family had a little birthday celebration for me, and they wanted to see me open the gift. Janelle told me she would not make me a quilt this year for my birthday (she did last year), but she lied....and what is even better is that in honor of our 2 year BFFiversary she made herself a matching one. So my quilt has a twin in Canada. Isn't it amazing?? I love it. It is on my lap right now. Yes, I know it is 100 degrees outside (about 38 for you celsius folks), but air conditioning can feel a bit chilly.....plus it is very cute and I like to look at it. :) It is made out of fabric that she bought on her trip out last year, and some I sent to her a few months ago. I love it. Plus it has a neato label. Thank you Janelle. You are the best BFF a girl could ask for. As an added bonus your family is pretty cool too. I should have taken a picture of the Coffee Crisps your mom bought me. They are yummy and I love them too!

Jeremy's birthday was while we were back east. We actually had a really great day at the Statue of Liberty, but since we were across the country we didn't do gifts. He decided it would be fun for us to have his and hers bikes, so when I got back from Canada I saw this. Yes, it is a pink cruiser and I love it. I even got a pink helmet to go with it. YAY!! Do I look a bit ridiculous on it?? Probably. Do I love riding it?? Absolutely. Thanks baby! You do know me. I should also mention the 2 dozen roses he brought home today. Yeah, he's a pretty nice guy.

Don't you love that crazy Canadian candy? It's like stumbling into a whole new world of deliciousness whenever I go there!

And I LOVE your new bike. Honestly, I want one very badly.

Happy 30th--my thirties (I'm three years in) have been wonderful, and I know you'll feel the same.

wow - I am so wishing that Janelle was my bff. That quilt is incredibly beautiful. I'd use it in 90 degree heat too. Jealous!

I was looking at crusier bikes online last night and found the perfect one that I want. It's white with pink rimed tires. And the best part They have a matching one for Lucy! We would be so cute. Someday......

I'm glad you celebrated and had a fun birthday.

You are so spoiled....but you deserve it. What fun!!!!! It looks like you had a great day and I really wish that I could have been there with you. Too bad when I do get to come out it will be cold and icy and not bike riding weather at all...I would love to try your bike out.
