Best Birthday

July 4, 2008

This past Tuesday (July 1st) was my 26th birthday and it was one of the best ones I've had...


My parents took Jaymin for the afternoon so Jeff and I had EIGHT hours on our own to do whatever we wanted. We went to the Briarcliff area, had lunch, walked around and got THE most amazing lemon rasberry torte I've ever had. Then we headed over to the plaza where we walked around, saw a movie, and went to Barnes & Noble to read and drink coffee ( I know, a dream day, right?)...

For dinner we met up with my parents and younger brother and sister at Gojo's, one of my long time favorite restaurants. I was so excited to see Jaymin's reaction to the food being cooked at our table, it was his very first trip there (other than in-utero).

Yum!

Topped off with a little sherbet...

...and my birthday gift...


Which was EXACTLY what I wanted! I had been saving for a sewing machine and was planning on using all my birthday money to get one. I was SO excited for this gift and have had a lot of trouble pulling myself away from it the last few days. :)

Thank you to everyone who called, emailed, texted and spent my birthday with me. It was a great day because of each one of you!

I am so excited you got a sewing machine. It was one of my all time favorite gifts in 1981 and now I spend a lot of time at mine. Happy birthday.
