on sunday we celebrated both mine and jordan's birthdays (our birthdays are one day apart... so i must also say, happy birthday jordan!) with a delicious breakfast of, my favorite, egg, cheese, + bacon on an english muffin (some had theirs on bagels... i prefer the english muffin. the bread to filling ratio is off with a bagel... too much bread. clearly i've given this some thought.). william and lindsey made berry muffins all by themselves, oj for the kids, coffee for mom and dad... and we feasted. we used to be really good about having what we called "fiesta breakfast" every saturday morning but we've let that tradition slip away a bit. it needs to come back.
anyway, nathaniel came home for the night which was great. and it gave me a chance to work on our christmas card (which i'll hopefully send out by christmas... that's the idea, isn't it?) then later that day we went out to lunch. i got some mocassins that i'd been coveting, and a gift card to anthro... which brings me to this point... is it just me or do you guys stress out a little over anthro gift cards? it's all, "WHAT DO I GET!? WHAT IS THE BEST THING TO SPEND THIS MONEY ON?" cause, it's not every day i afford anthro clothes. in fact, steve once got me a gift card to there and i was so stressed out with what to buy myself that i bought KITCHEN KNOBS INSTEAD. stupid.
so, that was that. since my birthday actually fell on a monday (which should be illegal), we did most of our celebrating sunday. but i did enjoy a leisurely breakfast with steve and parker at an old diner near us on monday morning. the type of diner that has juke boxes at the booths, waitresses that you know have been there for years and years, and an old-fashioned cash register with an old man sitting at it, drinking coffee, ready to cash you out before you leave. the best kind of diner if you ask me. oh, and here's the birthday girl, that's me... (and the boy who has become like an appendage... with me, always. and i quite like it that way).
