Birthday Week

While I had intended to put up a post on my birthday it just didn't happen. So, here's the recap of my birthday week! =) On Tuesday, I slept in because I had the day off. Then I bummed around on the computer, went out for coffee with a good friend, went shopping at the Apple Store, had lunch via White Castle, got my free birthday car wash and went out to dinner with Elizabeth. She gave me an iTunes gift card and a new office chair (mine squeaks a lot). I also got lots of text messages, e-cards and phone calls from friends & family wishing me a happy birthday. Gotta love technology! I got a card and phone call from my parents and my aunt sent a card as well. My mother-in-law even sang to me (via voicemail). Cool day!

Last night, the in-laws met us at Macaroni Grill at Rosedale Center. It was probably the best experience I've had at that restaurant - great food, fresh bread & fun with the family! I also got cards & presents there as well.

Lovers' Night Out

For Valentine's Day, Elizabeth and I started a tradition of going out for dinner and taking turns at picking the restaurant. The only requirement is that it had to be someplace that neither of us had been to before.

This year was my pick and we made reservations for W.A. Frost & Company. It had a great rustic decor and excellent service. Wifey had the special, a tasting menu of six courses of various fare (I'd list them but I can't remember them all). I decided to go a different route, choosing the Tomato & Goat Cheese soup with a Caesar salad and then Norwegian salmon with Risotto. Very tasty!

Friday the 13th

So, today is supposed to be the day. A black cat crosses your path. You break a mirror. Step on a crack and take your mom out of commission. Walk under that ladder. Breathe while passing a cemetery. Forget to throw spilled salt over your shoulder. How are you ever going to survive an unlucky day like this?!?!

The only thing weird that happened today was at happy hour in Brit's Pub - a nice 50-year-old woman invited me to have a drink with her while she waited for her girlfriends. That's it, really.

I'm still tempted to go see the remake of Friday the 13th but I just finished watching a movie. Oh well, maybe next month! ;)
