Another Happy Birthday to Me!

I turned 35 today and it has been a great day so far. If you want to see some nostalgic photos of me, check out my post from last year on my birthday. I can't believe another year has gone by. It was interesting to go back and read my post from last year.

This morning started off great with me getting to sleep in until 9:45 a.m. I probably would have slept later, but Jon Paul's phone woke me up. I was still in bed, being lazy when Jon Paul and Rachel came in and brought me breakfast in bed. It was so yummy and sweet of them.

So far I have received some wonderful gifts. With some of our Christmas money and for my birthday, I got this. I love it and it will make it so much easier to transfer video from the camera to the computer. I'm sure this means there will be many more videos to post on here! My three wonderful sisters bought me the first three seasons of LOST on DVD. I also got this - on sale with an additional 20% off coupon. It is really warm - Jon Paul says it is too warm on his feet! Rachel surprised me last night with a scrapbook that she made with Granna. It was really precious. This morning I opened up this gift. I love it and can't wait to really look/read it. Jon Paul also gave me a Mom's Coupon book. Can't wait to start redeeming those! Betty gave me money and I'm sure I'll have something to open tonight from my parents.

Speaking of tonight...my aunt and uncle are in town. My uncle and I have the same birthday. So, my parents are treating us to dinner at Benihana's! My sister, Michelle and her husband Stacy are going to join us too. It should be a fun night filled with GREAT food! I can already smell the fried rice!

One of the things I wanted to do today was get some photos organized and ready to blog about. I have already done that and I have about ten different things I want to post about. So, much more to come in the days ahead. I hope to see you back here soon!

Glad you're having an awesome day!

I've wanted to try Benihana's since I saw the episode on the Office where everyone went there. I just searched and found out there is one near Downtown Disney. How in the WORLD have I missed that???

It sounds like you had a great birthday! I have several friends' blogs in my faves and keep forgetting to check them more than once a week-sorry for the belated comment! Hubby and I LOVE LOST and can't wait for it to come back on. Enjoy your gifts! :)
