Today was my birthday! And it didn’t suck! I was a little worried, what with the weather and H being super sick and all. (Seriously, y’all, last night was a little frightening.) But today dawned slushy and rainy instead of icy, and H was vastly improved, though certainly not well. Regardless, he was well enough to go to daycare, so I packed him and his sister off to their respective schools and took off on my own for the day!
I got coffee and knitted for a while. I had lunch with my dad & step-mom at The Blue Spoon, which was amazingly delicious. I got those brussels sprouts with bacon and a mustard cream sauce for an appetizer and they were the best darn thing I’ve put in my mouth for a good long time. Then I headed over to my mom’s and she brought me book shopping. After I dropped her off, I went to the mall (ugh) where I realized an old friend works at Sephora (yay!) and he hooked me up with tons of free stuff. I got ridiculously expensive (but wonderful) eye cream and a sample of this stuff, which is totally bizarre and creepy and yet now my skin feels like a baby’s bottom.
Ordered pizza for dinner. Talked to my sister for an hour. Going to bed early. All in all, an excellent day.
