Yes, it's true. The national holiday has come and gone. What national holiday, you ask? My birthday, of course! :) 26. Twenty-six. T-W-E-N-T-Y-S-I-X. Geez. My sister called to wish my a happy birthday recalling how it seemed just like yesterday that I turned 16 and got a cute little car. That thought was followed by, "Oh my gosh, that was 10 years ago!" I was proud to see that Kristen's math skills were at work.
Anyway, despite the momentary struggle with passing over a quarter of a century, my birthday truly was a fabulous day. My students sang to me, friends brought me breakfast, my husband and friends organized dinner and Chris booked an AMAZING prenatal massage for me this morning as my gift. It was great! I feel so lucky to have so many people in my life who are so caring.
The restaurant we went to last night was called Tamayo. We have wanted to go there forever, so it was great to go on such a special night. The restaurant specializes in modern Mexican cuisine - basically REALLY good Mexican food that is pretty too! :) Octoberfest was also going on right outside on the block surrounding the restaurant which provided for a fun stroll after dinner was complete.
Thanks again for all the cards and phone messages! I feel truly loved!!
Here are a few pics from last night's dinner with Matt, Stacey, Dawn, Chris and I. Enjoy!
