My first birthday! Man I was excited. I was pretty much this excited when I woke up this morning too. That was until both of the animals pounced on me and I had to quick duck for cover to avoid being wiggled and boxed to death. You have to love my ginormous bald baby head in this picture.
Second birthday! Now those are some healthy tree trunks, er, legs! ( still have not had my 1st hair cut yet) (oh and I still have those healthy legs! yes Pup healthy!)
Third birthday at McDs! I look so innocent! (Note: Mom claims that I still had not had my 1st hair cut yet. )
Last night we went out to dinner at Bistro Bella Vita. Wonderful restaurant in downtown Grand Rapids that specializes in all local food. I will, however, be paying for my indulgences today. I choose to order whatever I wanted last night. So what if I knew it would make the j-pouch scream out in pain or react in protest? I didn't care if I had to pay the price today or not! It was my 3oth damn-it!
Since the food was so good I'll let you know, First up, cocktails! I had a pomegranate martini! For an appetizer we ordered the wild mushroom and goat cheese on flatbread. (Honestly, probably my favorite dish from the evening! And probably what I'll be paying the most for! Darn flat bread.) Main course I had the Paella. So, good! (Oh wait I just remembered I brought home leftovers, oh and now I just remembered I already ate all the good stuff out of the left overs!) With the paella my waitress paired me a nice glass of white wine. I have no idea what kind. I'm not a big fan of white, so she did the pairing. I wish all restaurants could do that for you. And the dessert! Lemon cheesecake on a pine nut crust. Yeah I am happily paying the price today. Completely and utterly worth it.
*WTF is up with the title right? Well when I was about 6 maybe, my Aunt Nancy bought my brother and I these tapes with this birthday song on it. Every single year since then, ANdy and I have sang this song for each other. Sorry, Scott says it is one of our odd sibling quirks.
