I came home and I was greeted with "Happy Birthday"s from all 3 girls. I woke up Mr. Amazing after a bit and we went out for a special birthday breakfast at Golden Corral.
|My first plate. Banana, yucky yogurt, some fruit and and AMAZING yeast roll|
|The girls at breakfast|
|My omelet. They use egg substitute so the eggs were fat free. I'm better the mushrooms I added were soaked in butter|
I have come to the conclusion that our stomachs are not accustomed to the added grease and unhealthy stuff in restaurant food. After breakfast Kay, Mr. Amazing and I were all sick to our stomachs. But, after we got home we changed and headed to my favorite place, the beach.
Oh! While we were there we also found this :-(
A poor little turtle. I had Mo put her hand next to it to show how small it was.
The rest of the day was kind of uneventful. I had planned on an awesome dinner and a trip to wander around St. Augustine but due to how we felt I made a real simple dinner. Burgers for Mr. Amazing and Baye, various veggies for me (I allowed Kay and Mo to goto their friends house for a while so they weren't here for dinner.)
The girls came back after dinner for cake and presents.
Note about my birthday cake:
Yes, I know it's a pie. Yesterday was a horrible baking day. I tried a fat-free cake and it failed miserably. I made a box mix and lightened it up with egg substitute and applesauce. No big deal. When I went to fill it with the fat free 7 minute frosting (same frosting I used for the Independence Day cupcakes) I realized that it tasted like soap. So it had to be tossed. I realized that I had wasted money, ingredients and time (almost 1/2 a day) on making my birthday cake. So I decided that I didn't want to see another birthday CAKE and went and picked up a Lemon Meringue birthday PIE after breakfast.
So, that's the wrap up of my birthday. Tomorrow I'm having my special birthday dinner and we're going to take a walk around downtown St. Augustine. I have turned my 1 day into a 2-Day-Birthday-EXTRAVAGANZA!!
2 life altering decisions I've made over the weekend will be revealed in tomorrow's post!
What do you do to celebrate YOUR birthday?
