and I enjoyed every. single. moment! John made the day all about ME! He wanted it to be a day were I got pampered and he fully delivered.
We woke early and headed to the gym. I did a leg workout where I did 50 squats...I am paying for that now. My butt is so sore! Afterwards we went and had breakfast together at the Diner.
He made appointments for me to get a manicure & pedicure. Then took me across town where I got a new hair cut and blow dried straight by Rodger. (he is the only person I will let cut my hair)
We went out to dinner at Michelangelo's in Conway. I was in the mood for Italian. We started out with Italian Nachos as an appetizer. These nachos were the bomb.com! This is what it consisted of...Crispy wonton chips are topped with Italian Sausage, black olives, cherry peppers, tomatoes, green onions, parmesan, mozzarella, and our Asiago Cream Sauce. Delicious!!! They served dinner with this Focaccia Bread & we ordered Roasted Garlic Cream sauce to dip it in. YUM! I had Chicken Scaloppine and it was de-lish! Didn't take any more photos of food....at this point I was on my 2nd Martini. I was feeling pretty good!
My mom came to celebrate with us and my 6 year old nephew, Flynn. I finally got a picture of this snaggle tooth boy!! Love it!!
Flynn had us all cracking up at the table. He told us two jokes....and for him to remember these jokes and use appropriate facial expression and all while telling it made us laugh even harder. I'm going to try to video tape him telling the jokes because it is hysterical to watch him.
Here I am on my 3rd Martini, a limoncello. This one put me over the top. I was feeling pretty good at this point! I'm not huge on desserts so I told everyone not to bake anything. I got a piece of chocolate cake which John & Flynn ate because I'm not crazy about chocolate. I did eat some of the blueberry cheesecake and tiramisu we ordered.
My mom gave me Bella perfume and lotion from Mary Kay, Flynn gave me a Willow Tree angel...The Dancer. He actually hugged me and let me kiss him; although you can tell by the photo he hated it. My girls gave me 3 matching Fire King coffee cups and a Pyrex casserole dish with the lid both from the 1950's!! I was so excited! They know me so well!!!
It was a very memorable birthday! Thank you, John for pampering me all day. You ROCK!!!
I will probably wear my hair straight for a few days before I wash it. I hope it looks cute curly. Thank you for all the birthday wishes yesterday, everyone!
