Happy Birthday to Me

Last night was so great! Me and my man had a date! You know these are few and far between nowadays, I think this was our 4th date since Isabella was born. Yikes! Sadly I forgot to take a picture to commemorate like I usually do; but trust me, it happened! I don't realize how much we need time to ourselves until we have it - it was just like we were dating again! I sure do love that man. I think it was really nice of God to choose him for me :)
We went to see a movie for the first time in a long time. We saw The Blind Side, it was really good, plus hardly anyone was there so there was no one to be grossed out by us. Muwahaha.
Then we went to Barnes and Noble for old times sake, haha. We used to go there all the time when we were dating. It's just fun to find crazy books and laugh together!
Then we went out for sushi!!! Yum!
Then he took me out for dessert before we headed back to get the munchkin. It was so nice to have some alone time with my guy.
Oh, and this is what he got me for my birthday

Just what I wanted. And in my favorite color!!!

Today will be more mellow - maybe I'll try out my new mixer!
Happy birthday to me!


Oh, and those of you who commented on my Something New post will be very happy. I shaved my head and listed my curly locks on etsy!! Now you can have them too! (just kidding, of course. You guys crack me up!)

Pin It!

YAY for the kitchen aid!!! It will be your best friend for life!

I've been craving sushi for weeks now. Whatever the fried soft-shell crab one is, with seaweed salad on the side. There's a place in Maryland that has the best sushi - I'm going there for either lunch or dinner on Thursday - I've been planning this for 2 weeks!!!

Happy Birthday! I'm glad God hooked you guys up, too :)
