Happy Birthday to Me

Breakfast in bed. No picture as I was the one in bed. But just so you know, it was divine. I felt very loved. I also received an I-love-you-you're-the-greatest-mom-in-the-whole-world letter from Thirdborn. I told him it was the very best present.
Went to school. Forgot to make cupcakes to take to my classmates. I'll make some for tomorrow's class.
Lunch with Mr. Wonderful at our fave sushi place. No pictures as I didn't take my camera.
Mr. Wonderful even turned his phone off. I felt very loved.
(He told me he wanted to buy me a laptop for my bday but decided I'd better pick it out myself.)
Quick dinner fix. Wednesdays are spaghetti night at our house. There was absolutely no time for a birthday celebration as we were trying to juggle tutoring/scouts/homework. Time later for that this weekend.
I did receive this in the mail. Is there anything better than a beautifully wrapped package in the mail?


With an absolutely gorgeous card.

Want to know what it is? You'll be so envious....

Handmade chocolates from somebody named Fran. Actually it was from my friends Sooz and Captain Midnight from the Pacific Northwest. Thanks so much! I shall limit myself to one a day and really savor them.


The kids asked if I was going to share. Uh, no.....well, I will with Mr. Wonderful. The kids wouldn't appreciate these any more than a bag of Hershey's Kisses.
Tonight I tried the smoked salted caramel (bottom right in the photo). Oh *swoon*, these are soooooo divine.

I'm so glad they got there in time!

Fran's salted caramels are horrifyingly addictive. When you come visit, remind me and I will treat you to an iced hot chocolate at Fran's. It's almost too much.
