Happy Birthday to Me!

What a wonderful birthday I had yesterday! My family and friends love me!!! First off, Dan, my Mom, my mother-in-law, and my aunt-in-law all pitched in to get me the iPod Touch (16G version). Can you believe that? I was soooo taken aback when Dan gave it to me. I never in a million years thought I would get it. Especially, not the Touch. It's totally awesome how I could store my entire photo library (about 1600 pictures), go online, play games, and oh yeah listen to music. I love it, love it, love it!! Thank you so much for doing this for me. You all have outdone yourselves. I'm very touched.

My birthday gets even better than that. Dan told me to be ready by 11:30am. I had no idea why or where we were going. So, I did as I was told. He then gets a phone call from my bff, Sal, saying that she wants to give me my gift and to make a pit stop at her place. I found it fishy, but I wasn't going to think about it too much. We reach her place and she asks me to take a quick drive to Blockbuster with her. Well, as you can guess, we didn't go to Blockbuster. She took me to get my hair done! Fast forward a few hours later and my hair looks awesome! I no longer look like a beat-up mom. I look like a hot mama!!

But wait, the day got even better than that. After I was all coiffed, I found out that Guy (bff's hubby) was going to grill for me. Sal and I picked up some food and off to the bbq we went! Aren't they the best? I really have such beautiful people in my life. I love them! Thank you so much for all you did for me. I really appreciate it.

We all had a wonderful time and ate plenty of yummy food. Even Will got in on the grill action. He ate salmon. Yes, SALMON! Can you believe that? He was loving it. I kept on breaking off little flakes and giving it to him and he kept on opening his mouth for more. Now that I know this, we will have salmon very often.

Dan did have other gifts for me. He got me this gorgeous orange knitted cardigan and the book Twilight. I had heard that the movie was coming out and told him that I wanted to read the book before it did. He remembered and got it for me. Isn't he great? I love him!!!

Again, I want to thank you all for making my birthday so special. I have very special people in my life and I'm always very grateful for them. Thank you all!!
