Yes, I share a birthday with Patriot Day! 9/11…..but being that I was born in 1970 I do believe it was MY birthday first. Before this horrible tragedy happened on our soil. I still have my remembrances during the week, but I have learned to reclaim MY day as my birthday again. 😉
I hope everyone is looking forward to a good weekend! I am so glad it’s Friday. I was actually born on a Friday. Another strange thing, last night I got to bed super late as I worked a bit later than normal and had a couple errands on the way home. So I actually laid down in bed 5 minutes before the time I was born 39 years ago. I was born at 1:25am.
So I don’t feel any older or different. Probably because I’ve been anticipating this birthday for about 6 months now. I cannot believe how close to 40 I am getting!! I mean….wow!! I still feel like my same self and if anything life just keeps getting better and better!!
I’m looking forward to a date night “out” with my hubby tonight. Most of our dates are at home…so I am super excited! We are actually going to dinner where I work. Serving all this good Italian food, and I haven’t been able to sample any of it yet. I can’t wait to show Ken where I work, and everyone will have a chance to meet my handsome husband.
And I’ll finally get a chance to try that “to die for” dark chocolate cake that I serve so often. Two more bonuses of the meal: a good friend of mine will be serving us and I get a 30% discount! Can’t beat that!!
They have a sunset menu that runs until 7:30 right now since we are out of season here in South Florida. It is such a great deal! $18.95 includes your glass of wine and salad! They also bring out freshly made bruschetta and bread with the different olive oils.
In some ways I feel like I’m actually doing research for my new job 😉 Can’t wait!
Then we are off to finally see Time Traveler’s Wife!! We are both very excited about that.
So as a new food blogger….I guess I’m supposed to bring my camera tonight so I can snap pictures of all the delicious food we eat. I’m sure I’ll feel rather odd whipping out the camera, but I’m so inspired by everyone’s blogs I want to join in too!
As far as cooking this week, not a whole lot has gone on here. Tuesday and Thursday nights I worked so everyone had pasta here. My oldest daughter Sarah (10) made it both nights…one night with penne noodles and one night with spaghetti. Wednesday night we had AWANA so we just ate something quick that night.
Hopefully I’ll get some inspiration soon and have some new things to share. Just haven’t had the time this week. Next week it will be time to get to Costco and Whole Foods again. 😉
