Bday Recap

There were dinners and family gatherings earlier in the week. M came and took me out to lunch today. My mother-in-law bought me a fantastic 4 disc Johnny Cash compilation. And Travis did a bang-up job of surprising me again and again.
First it was flowers and French toast awaiting me once I woke up.

Then it was my daughter's new onesie that I didn't even notice until I had finished my breakfast (which I ate in bed with my family).
On the way from Mass to the gym Travis slyly switched the radio over to a CD - the new Coldplay album for little ole me. (I love it!)
Once I got out of the shower my birthday carrot cake was waiting for me. :)
Then, while I was washing up some dishes, Travis brought L to me. She was "holding" her present to me, wrapped in a receiving blanket. It was Stranger Than Fiction.
Mom showed up about 11 so Travis and I could go to lunch at Chili's.

That afternoon he made creme brulee. It was so good. :) I'm a very lucky woman.
