Sometimes it’s easier when your birthday falls on a silly day, like a Tuesday, because when it hits on a Friday, especially in June, you enjoy yourself way too much all weekend and are just not ready for Monday to come.
So let’s see. We sort of left off that I ran ten miles Friday morning and then got back into bed with my favorite mug to work for a bit before doing some birthday things…
I picked my son up early from school on Friday in time for lunch at Red Mango.
Cherry on top to make things extra special.
The only way to see a movie these days is at a theatre with big reclining leather chairs.
My birthday dinner was at my favorite sushi spot, Kashi.
Peanut Avocado and Spicy Tuna roll plus one of the special rolls which had lots of fun stuff inside but of course I can’t remember what exactly. I just know that I loved it.
It was a beautiful night so we walked to XO for chocolate fondue.
Chocolate makes me happy.
Still gazing at my rainbow roses.
I couldn’t wait to tell you about one of my most favorite birthday gifts — you are talking to the newest member of the Dessert Of The Month Club!
Such a great gift for someone like me, right?! I am so excited to receive my first delivery. I wonder what type of dessert it will be?!
Birthday gift cards to Lululemon meant an emergency trip to cash in on the good stuff.
I picked up a bright pink short sleeve Run Swiftly and fresh pair of Run Inspire Cops <- my favorites.
Saturday by the pool felt more like Saturday on vacation. Seriously, it did.
Sunday was another beautiful day…
My friend Lisa had a party at her house and she makes the best parties ever.
You can always count on good food, good company and a candy table when Lisa is running the show.
I guess we can call Sunday night dinner at Cirella’s with my parents, which featured the Cirella’s Sundae, my birthday weekend finale.
Warm fudge brownies and fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies surrounded by vanilla, chocolate and cookies and cream ice cream topped with hot fudge and whipped cream.
Oh and a strawberry on top to keep things healthy and balanced.
Do you remember my son and I shared this sundae last year on my birthday?
The sundae technically serves six but my son and I order it for ourselves and simply alert the other members of our party in advance that they are to go their own way come dessert time.
My mother, you should know, had the audacity to take the last brownie from our sundae. My son and I are still talking about it. Chutzpah, as is said in Yiddish, real chutzpah.
So now it’s Monday and it’s time to focus on the week ahead. Really? I am so not in the mood but maybe my morning run will make me feel better.
That’s the thing about routine; it helps to keep you organized and on schedule while snapping you back to reality should you start to deviate off track from too much fun.

What’s your lululemon must-have item?
Are you a sugar candy eater (think sour patch kids and gummies) or chocolate candy eater (m&m’s, Hershey bars…)?
