Thank you so much for all of the birthday comments, tweets, and e-mails yesterday! They really made my day!
I had a great birthday, complete with a morning spin class, a trip to Uncommon Grounds for lunch, and vegan cupcakes for dessert! There are still parts of my birthday weekend that I want to share with you, but I’ll just recap my actual birthday for now. 🙂
My day started with a spin class. Well, actually, my day started by looking out my window at this:
Snow! On the first full day of spring!? WHAT?!?!
I wasn’t about to let the weather stop me from working out, though. This e-mail wasn’t going to stop me either:
Psh. I don’t know about you, but I don’t see working out as a chore. I was actually excited to go to my spin class!
When I got home from the gym, Jeff offered to make me breakfast. He started by bringing me a hot cup of coffee with vanilla almond milk.
Then he prepared a feast!
You’re starring at scrambled eggs, a Morningstar Farms “sausage” patty, and a slice of whole wheat toast with grape jelly. Twas a delicious birthday breakfast!
After being lazy for a bit, Jeff and I headed out for lunch at Uncommon Grounds.
You had to have seen that coming. I mean, my birthday wouldn’t have been complete without a trip to my
second home favorite cafe ever.
This was a cinnamon raisin bagel with a tiny bit of honey walnut cream cheese. I asked for extra honey. :-)
Since it wasn’t that nice out, we decided to go to the mall after lunch. We stopped by the pet store, where we played with this beautiful boy for a while:
Isn’t he adorable? He was the oldest puppy in the shop. Pet stores make me really sad, but Jeff and I like to take the puppies out once in a while to play with them, and give them a break from being locked up in cages. When it comes time to get a dog of our own, we’ll definitely get one from a shelter.
I was in the mood for Italian for dinner, so we stopped by the store for the necessary ingredients for a spaghetti and “meatball” dinner.
The “meatballs” were really easy to make:
And the sauce we picked out was delicious!
All together now:
After dinner, Jeff sang happy birthday to me:
And since I couldn’t decide if I wanted the chocolate or strawberry cupcake…
I had both! 🙂 Genius, if you ask me!
All in all, it was a wonderful day! I love birthdays!
Do you see working out as a chore?
Have a great night! <3
