Before work I enjoyed a free Grand Slam breakfast at Denny's. I LOVE Denny's scrambled eggs (with cheese) - they are so ridiculously delicious! Definitely the best eggs I've ever had and will probably ever have.
I arrived at work to decorations and presents. My office mates know me well; gnomes (and a gnome reading a book at that!) and sugary treats. I also got several fun certificates in response to certificates I've awarded in the past. It was a nice day for being at work and all.
I discovered a fun little Happy Birthday note on my windshield from a roller derby friend who recently started working in the building next to mine. It's crazy how those little things can put such a big smile on your face.
I left work early so I could visit the chiropractor. The weekend prior to my birthday I somehow managed to hurt my lower back by sitting around all weekend reading. I was told that only I could manage something like that. Ha!
After my chiropractor visit, I met my family for dinner. Another free birthday meal, this time at a local 50s cafe - they have delicious popcorn and one of the best mushroom swiss burgers ever. I definitely ate well on my birthday!
After dinner everyone came back to our house for cheesecake (yum!) and presents. I'd been wanting Yard Yahtzee for quite some time and put the bug in my dad's ear that he could make me a set for my birthday if he was interested. Well, I lucked out and he was interested. I got two sets - a painted and unpainted set - both of which are perfect! Almost too nice to play with!
In addition to Yard Yahtzee, I'd also been wanting a bean-bag toss game for quite some time. My father-in-law granted my wish for this one. Thirty-five is apparently the birthday for yard games. And perhaps 36 is the year to actually play them (it's horrible, but neither game has made it out into the yard yet!).
And like Mother's Day, I forced Crickett to take a photo with me. And like Mother's Day, she was thrilled about it.
Stay tuned for more June happenings, (although they're obviously not going to be as exciting as my birthday happenings)!
