B-Day Report

My birthday was very nice -- thanks for all the well wishes -- and I enjoyed the weekend.

On Saturday, my husband and I went to dinner at The Melting Pot and we had a fondue-tastic time (I wanted to drink that bowl of chocolate at the end even though I was so full), and then we relaxed and watched a movie at home ("Casino Royale" which I thought was so-so).

Then yesterday, my actual b-day (and soon-to-be national holiday -- I'm checking into the details), we spent most of the day painting. I know, I know, I shouldn't do work on my b-day, but our condo remodeling is getting really close to being finished, and every day spent on it, brings us one day closer, so we painted one wall in the living room (red!) and we primed the kitchen (what a bitch! I hate kitchens and bathrooms). But in the afternoon, we got burritos from Chipolte and we met up with some friends to see "Hot Fuzz" in the theater.

This. Was. Awesome. I laughed harder than I have laughed in a long time. I am a big fan of "Shaun of the Dead" but I think this was almost better than that. It was hil-ar-i-ous! (I think those Brits are just plain funny anyway.) So, that was excellent.

As for b-day loot, my husband got me some great stuff including a gift card for the local running store (sweet!) -- I think I might get new shoes with it, and he got me a balance ball (so my abs of steel workout can continue). I got many other treats as well, but none else are running related (and it was mostly money and gift cards from my family). Scooter got me a gift card for Starbucks, which was very thoughtful of him, considering he has no allowance.

All in all, it was an excellent b-day, and I'm looking forward to the year of 29! I think it will be awesome.
