Happy Birthday to me.. (chuckle) Yup. I just turned another year older. The last year seemed to move a bit slower, which is fine with me. Anyway, I had a really great birthday yesterday and celebrated most of the weekend, amazingly.
Friday evening, my daughter and I got a late start after she got out of school and we headed out to do some shopping at Target. We selected a couple of sets of some really nice, oversized bath towels. We were overdue for some nice new towels, and it was fun picking them out. We got some clothes and other assorted stuff that I had put off picking up for a while. When we finished it was pretty late so we headed to a well-known after hours coffee shop that has the best hamburgers and specials all hours of the day and night. After munching out, we came home and grabbed some sleep.
Saturday morning, we woke up a bit late after sleeping in, and went and got new haircuts/styles as we tried out a new place that is really close to my home. It was a lot less expensive than what I’m used to paying, which is always a great thing, but I think I like my usual place and hairdresser better. I kind of like the new look though; it’s a nice change and my child loved her new “side bangs..”
We came back home, took some naps later that day, and dressed for dinner and the movies. We had Chinese food at my fave chinese restaurant last night. Too delicious! Here’s what we selected from the menu:
Shrimp with Bacon
Combination Fried Rice
Hot chinese tea with sugar
Mmmmm… it was just the best, all of it! Anyway, so then we’re off to the late movies. We saw a double feature!
First we saw “The Vow,” and then went into the midnight movie and saw Tyler Perry’s “Good Deeds.” I loved both movies but “Good Deeds” was the best. It was a wonderful movie with a great message. It was definitely worth a look-see if you’re wanting to see something that makes you feel good. We got home super late.
Today has been a really quiet day that was capped off by another great dinner out with a best friend and my daughter. We had some awesome seafood, King crab legs, lobster tail, fried shrimp, shrimp scampi, baked potato, and Ceasar salad. Am I making you hungry yet? 🙂
My best friends gave me some sweet, thoughtful gifts and I had a wonderful weekend running all around. We really enjoyed getting out to the movies and the many dinners as we don’t go out too often these days since we’re watching our pennies.
I’m really tired now, though, and am just gonna lay back for a few days and recover. I’m normally kind of a homebody, but my daughter’s birthday is coming up next and she’s going to be celebrating with various friends and me as her chauffeur. Gotta rest up. She’s turning thirteen.
I hope everyone’s weekend was as nice as mine was. Birthdays are fun!
