Happy birthday to me and a happy Friday to you!
That would be my dessert from last night. Of course my son and I ended up at The Cheesecake Factory and of course I had Linda’s Fudge Cake.
In fact, looking back on my last two year’s worth of birthday blog posts, it seems I had Linda’s Fudge Cake now three years in a row the night before my birthday. I guess I have a June 4th tradition going that I didn’t even realize.
If you recall from last year’s birthday post, I have another birthday tradition that I treat myself to every year.
I love getting a pedicure any time of the year but for my birthday, I treat myself to one of the “special” pedicures which usually involves fancier foot scrubs and a longer leg massage.
I ended up getting my birthday manicure and pedicure yesterday because I wasn’t sure I would have time today and there was no way I was missing out on one of my favorite birthday indulgences.
I know I can spend a little more money any time of the year for one of these pedicures but I save it for my birthday just to make something ordinary a little more special, like a treat.
Speaking of treats and feeling special…
Seriously, the people at Love Grown Foods are the best. Not only do I LOVE their oatmeal, they kept my favorites in mind in order to send me a special birthday package which arrived on my doorstep yesterday afternoon.
Oh and look what else arrived on my doorstep yesterday…
I always wanted arm sleeves for when I run races and now I have them! Someone very thoughtful came up with this idea for me, not even realizing I needed them.
How cute are they?
So what’s on tap for me today, on this fine Friday, June 5th you wonder?
A 10 mile run after I eat some breakfast. I got in the habit of running 10 miles on my birthday because I am way too old and have better things to do than try to run 37 miles in honor of my age.
However, if we take the age of 37 and convert it to 3 +7 = 10, we have 10 miles so for this year, 10 miles makes some sense.
Next on my list is picking my son up from school early, around lunch time, so he can have Red Mango with me followed by an afternoon trip to the movies to see Spy which opens today.
We love Melissa McCarthy!
I know, I know, I am the best for taking him out of school early to play today but see, he is with his dad this weekend and we really wanted to see this movie and it’s my birthday and school is almost over anyway and it’s Friday so why not?!
As for my birthday dinner and special dessert, it’s still up in the air. I haven’t decided but I promise, you will be the first people I report to after it happens 🙂
