Birthday celebration

I just loved all the birthday notes, calls and e-mails. It warms a girl's heart to know she's being thought of by so many! Thanks to each of you who blessed me with a comment or e-mail. (My favorite bloggy greeting came from Frances: "May your heart be full of joy as you look back with gratitude and forward with hope.")

I had some casual gatherings with friends, and then on Saturday night, my husband took me out to this yummy place. After dinner, we went to a hockey game! Eric made me our traditional birthday breakfast in bed (Betty Crocker cinnamon streusel muffins--they are awesome! Please e-mail if you know a homemade version that's as good or better . . . ) and he also surprised me by hiding 29 notes around the house of things he appreciates about me, which was so encouraging!

Here's us at the hockey game in our 4th row seats. Wahoo!

Glad your birthday was so nice. I love the 29 notes left for you, so sweet!

I am with you on the BC cinnamon streusel muffins. I have made some good homemade versions, but nothing as good as the BC version. Sigh.

Thanks for the birthday update! How fun! I also think the 29 notes are so thoughtful...better than any gift that could be purchased! :-)

I have never had the Betty Crocker streusel muffins....I must be missing out! I really love "Cinnabon" cinnamon rolls...have you ever had those?? Too good. I can't wait to try the Betty Crocker ones!

Glad you had a wonderful weekend.

Sounds like a GREAT birthday! I might need to send my own DH over to your blog to read because I think 34 (GASP!) notes would be wonderful to hunt for in a few weeks. . . . : )

Sounds like a wonderful birthday! A hockey game sounds fun... I haven't been to one since college.
