Another Year older

November 18th was my 34th birthday. Almost every year for my birthday Gabe takes me wine tasting out in the country which is one of my favorite things to do of all time. I love it cause I have beautiful scenery around me, the air smells fresh with woods and flowers, I get to check out lovely wine tasting rooms, taste great wine, meet new people, and have a nice dinner. I just love it.
However plans changed this year. Gabe asked me if I wanted to do wine tasting for my birthday this year..or. for my birthday he would renew our Disneyland annual passports. I opted for the annual Passports for Disneyland! That is another one of my favorite things to do plus I can take the kids and go more often then wine tasting...besides..I think later we are going to do wine tasting anyway.
So since we were going to go to Disneyland over the weekend for my bday I just worked and figured it to be just any regular day at the office but I got surprises all day! This is my desk. Holly came in the morning with a big red velvet cupcake with candles and some balloons and sung Happy Birthday to me!
My Bosses wife dropped by and brought me these beautiful Gladiolas
We had some guests from our factory in Italy in town and they left me a bottle of wine ( which I think they got for free from their hotel) but a very nice gesture!
My boss got me my favorite Italian Rum butter Cake. They called me into the kitchen and all the staff plus the students that were here for training and one of our dealers were all there too to sing and enjoy the cake. This cake lasted 1 day in my house!
Ally dropped by my office and she knows I have a thing for OWLS...I LOVE owls as well as Long Neck vintage cats. She made these amazing Owl cupcakes which My kids went crazy over...the last one I had in a box Gabe and I walked into my kitchen and Ava was sitting on the floor COVERED with chocolate...I guess she inhaled it before we caught her and took it away. They were very tasty!
Along with the cupcakes Ally brought me this awesome Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffany's poster.
Work turned out to be a pretty good day. I had a nice lunch, surprised with random goodies here and there and it was not too busy so my day was very nice...Plus I had the following day off so it was a start to my bday weekend!
When I came home the house was all cleaned up and on the table in the living room was this very special birthday cake that Gabe baked at home. He and Ava walked over to the cake shop and he picked out these little decorations, home made frosting and filling for the cake. He said to me he didn't realize how hard it is to make a cake.
It was a tasty cake and I thought it came out pretty darn cute too!
Shortly my mom showed up to watch the kids while Gabe and I dashed out to dinner. He was going to take me to Park Ave which is like one of my favorite restaurants but I really did not want to travel too far from home.
You know it was crazy cause I just had this feeling to not go far and I was telling Gabe that and he said he had the same feeling too!
Do you ever get that?
So we ended up going to Outback Steakhouse by the Lakewood Center mall right by us and had a cocktail then ate dinner ( steak and king Crab for me and Steak and lobster for Gabe). We got home early and just spent the rest of the evening lounging around the house.
I have to say it was really super mellow and I loved it!
