"It's My Birthday!!"

If you have been anywhere around me in the past week, you know that my birthday was Thursday. We started the festivities last Sat night when my parent came down and took Kent and I to Firebirds at Patton Creek. I'd never eaten there but several people told me how good it was. I ordered the wood grilled salmon with parmesean mashed potatoes & steamed veggies. It was sooooo good! I forgot to take my camera, so there are no pics. :( Monday, my sister, niece and mom came down and we ate lunch at Cafe Lazio. I love their greek salads. Neither my mom nor Kali had ever eaten there, so I introduced them to a new restaurant. Everyone loved it except for Aubrey. She really wasn't in the mood to eat lunch.
Wednesday night, Kent gave me my present-snorkeling equipment!!!! I am so excited! When we were on our honeymoon and last year when we went to Jamaica, we had to rent our equipment and both times, the masks and mouthpieces were too big for my face. Now I have my own and it is scuba grade, so that when we get scuba certified, I already have some equipment.
Thurs morning, I received several phone calls and texts, but when I woke up, my facebook had blown up with the messages! Thank you all so much! I have such an incredible group of friends! Then I had to get ready to go to Superior Grill. My favorite kind of food is anything Mexican and they have the best cheese dip! So we met up with Kent's family & my BFF Heather.
They even brought me a super cute cake from Edgar's. Can you say YUMMO!!!
Of course, the waitors sang to me and called me "mamasita." Unfortunately, no sombrero.
Then my sister-in-law decided that the box needed to sing to me too.

We had such a great time!
Then, tonight at work, my wonderful co-workers threw me another Mexican fiesta! It wasn't a surprise, but when I walked in the door, they were having fun!
They had me quite the spread! Chicken, ground beef, a quesadilla maker, nachos, burritos, rice, awesome guacamole, cheese dip, whatever I wanted. I stuffed myself yet again! And to top it off, Sue made her famous pineapple cake...

So thank you to everyone! I am truly blessed beyond what I deserve having the greatest family, friends, and coworkers ever!
