I got to share my birthday

I was lucky enough to share my birthday with a lot of wonderful people. First, with Larry who locked his keys in his car so Creed and I got up early and brought him a key and then we all went out ot breakfast. Have you been to Rise & Shine on Fifth in Grandview? I've never even noticed it before, but we got the most amazing french toast coated with coconut, granola, and brown sugar. Yummy!

Next I got to share my birthday with my friend Rachel, who spent the day with me helping me get Creed to start taking naps now that he's on a new reflux medication that seems to really be working (which was the best birthday gift of all).

Then back to Larry again after he woke up from his nap. He took me to see Becoming Jane since I've been looking forward to seeing it and it was well worth the wait. What a beautiful movie! I highly recommend it! After all of that romance, when we got in the car to go pick up Creed, Larry popped in one of my old tapes and Adam Sandler singing "I Want to Grow Old With You" started playing and I got teary and because I was so impressed with Larry for the thought he put into having that ready after a romantic movie. He totally took credit for it and it wasn't until 10 minutes later that he felt guilty and he fessed up that he didn't plan that at all! He didn't even know what was on the tape, he just found it earlier and stuck it in my car because my CD player is jammed. I laughed, but then he got a slug on the shoulder for taking credit in the first place!

Then I got to share my birthday dinner with Larry and a sleeping Creed. Once we picked up Creed there wasn't much left open, but we stopped at Donatos because we have been saying for quite awhile that we should try one of their artisan pizzas at the experimental Donatos at Mill Run, but we're always too hungry when we get pizza to experiment witha small pizza. Well, what better way to celebrate my birthday than to start my list of 27 new things to try this year? We ordered breadsticks and the chicken carbonera artisan pizza on ciabatta crust and it was SO GOOD! Larry is a connseur of pizza and he said it was the best pizza that he's had in years.
And finally, I got to share my birthday with my new nephew!!!!!!! Marissa had a baby boy around three o'clock in the afternoon. He was 7 lbs 12 oz. He doesn't have a name yet and I don't have any pictures so more about that later!

Happy Birthday Stephanie! I hope this is the best year yet! I can't wait to visit C-Bus in Sept. and try some of that pizza! Donatos is my favorite and I have to have one every time we are in town, so excited to know they have something new to try.

You are such a cute bday girl :).
