So Justin and I have a deal that on my birthday I plan the day and Justin does everything with me. May not be some people's idea of fun, but having the personality that I do, it works well. This is also a slam dunk for my husband since I am saved from disappointment. Here are a few thoughts/reflections on the perfect day.
8:00 Woke up. Late for me. I did try to sleep in but didn't want to miss any fun.
9:00 Breakfast at Panera w/ Justin. I am no longer Starbucks biggest fan. Gasp! I think Panera's carmel latte is perfection, followed closely by the coffee I make at home (it's more milk and sugar than coffee really).
10:00 Flea Market. Found the Christmas sweater vest for $3.98 for our office's dress up day on Wednesday. We asked, it is NOT tacky Christmas sweater day. But, isn't every Christmas sweater tacky? I appologize in advance for how I will look on Wednesday.
11:30 Pistal Pete store. I decided that since 32 and OSU rhyme, I needed to buy something OSU related. Turns out, it was not worth $60.
12:20 Scholozsky's ( I have no idea how to spell that). Fate stepped in. Our order no. was 32. It was a preordained lunch.
1:10 3 hour movie=2012. Is is bad that I cared more about the dog making it than anyone else? I also would like to take a moment to talk about toilet seat covers. I used quite a few public restrooms today and I am a fan in general of using the toilet seat covers (when available) as opposed to hovering. My only problem is that it is a race against time to get yourself 'seated' before the cover sinks into the toilet! It's the worst when you have on a belt!
5:00 Reservations at Flemmings. I have never had reservations before. It felt pretty darn special. My husband was so cute. Ordered for me and let me eat most of the desert. The best food I have ever had in my life. And! They gave me a box of truffles as a gift for spending my birthday there! Although, trust me. We paid for it in the end:)
6:30 Stroll around/window shopping in Utica Square. The trees are lit. There is Christmas music playing outside. Some of the stores were still open. Didn't buy anything (Justin's favorite part)
7:05 Drive to look at Christmas lights in Maple Ridge.
7:17 Drive home. I mean, how many Christmas lights can you look at?
Perfect day. Tomorrow (my real birthday) will be spent doing laundry and wrapping Christmas presents---totally worth it!
Thank you babe for the best birthday---love you!
