Friday night the husband surprised me by taking me out to dinner at one of my favorite places. Since we had the wedding on my actual birthday we had to celebrate a day early. The place we went to was the restaurant we had our first date at. They have amazing food and atmosphere. We had tuna tataki for an appetizer and I had the fire grilled scallops with sweet potato hash and a glass of wine for dinner. I took a quick picture but only after I ate most of it. It was soooo good. It is the type of place that is packed on the weekends and has an hour and a half wait without reservations.
For the first time ever I actually declined dessert. It was a good thing because when we got home Doug surprised me again……he had a whoopie pie with a birthday candle. As I have said before, I LOVE Whoopie Pies! I sure as hell made a wish on it too! Please ignore the dirty house in the background.
On my birthday, I woke early to get in a gym sess before we had to get ready for the wedding. To my surprise again, I found flowers and a card right as I was leaving.
Even my heart rate monitor wished me a happy birthday.
