Tuesday, September 15, 2009.....
For many, this marked the week football started. For others, school is back in full swing, but for me, I've earmarked this the start of 'National LMB Birthday Week'.
Before you start checking your calendar to see if you'll be enjoying any days off, I'll just give you the heads up and tell you won't.
Basically, this week is only fantastic to me! For the next seven days, I will celebrate me. For the next seven days, I will do something that would only put a smile on my face -- something I know I like.
It doesn't have to big, it just has to make me smile. It could be hanging out the park for an afternoon with a good book to picking up a yummy ice tea from Starbucks.
I know many people don't like their birthdays, but I do. Not only do I love mine, I love others. I know come next Wednesday, birthday week will be over for me and I will be celebrating hubby's birthday. A man who didn't care about birthdays while dating, but now, reminds daily how many days until his and always asking the never ending question: Are we going to get a black forest cake for my birthday?*
Happy Birthday Week to Me!**
* Seriously, Black Forest Cake? Not only are they impossible to find (last year one bakery made one with a buttercream frosting and no cherries on top - really?), but I haven't found a recipe for one. Also, have you ever have one baked by a German baker? Yikes. You can get drunk off the cherries with the special liqueur they use.
** I hope YogaGirl has a great gift for me. We're having dinner on Saturday (very excited because I haven't seen her since Father's Day).....
