You say it’s your birthday – Part 1

Posted Dec 09 2009 12:00am

Today is JB’s birthday, and… well…it’s my birthday too, yah!

This marks the day on which I have officially seen the earth revolve around the sun 27 times.  That’s a lot of times.

JB has only revolved around the sun 3 times.  I’m really not kidding when I say that today is his birthday.  When I adopted him almost three years ago, they estimated his date of birth as December 9th, the same as mine.  Isn’t that crazy?  That’s how I knew we were beshert :)

This morning, when I came downstairs, this is what I saw:

In the middle of the night, S had decorated the living room!  I have no idea how he did it, because I usually am a pretty light sleeper and thought for sure it would wake me up if he tried to do anything.

It was so cute, all the spongebob stuff!  Complete with a balloon, of course.

And some Happy Birthday ballons.

I was really surprised and so happy.  You know you love me rocking the cookies and milk pajama pants.

JB liked the Spongebob table cloth.  He kept trying to eat it.

Since it was JB’s birthday, S got him a present!  It was actually the biggest present, bigger than all of mine.  Heavy, too!

We helped JB open it… a kitty hotel!  Mendy instantly jumped in.

JB took things a little slower, sniffing it out.

There was lots of playing…

Until Mendy tuckered herself out.

After watching the cats play for a while, I made everybody a quick lunch of a yummy salad – romaine, cheese, ham, avocado, tomatoes, and marinated olives.

I even took my Mom to my gym.  That’s right, I went to the gym on my birthday!  I forgot my sweat towel, though.  I HATE when I do that.  I did 30 min on the stepmill, while my mom did the elliptical.  I’m so proud of her – she started going to the gym regularly about a year ago, and is now an official gym rat!  She even goes to other people’s gyms while on vacation!

For my birthday dinner, I chose sushi.  I actually tried to choose Subway, but S said no way.  Ha!  I got my favorite, the sashimi dinner.

And ate every. single. bite.

Heaven on a plate.

Afterwards I got my little orange boat.

Fun times for all.
