What a special birthday too. This is the first birthday since 1993 that I have not been overweight. To celebrate? I ran my three miles this morning and then did one jumping jack for every year I am now! Tonight we are headed to one of those places that make your meal on the fire in front of you. I plan on doing Sushi there. I know my kids will love the fire thing though!
3FC, this month marks my one year birthday with YOU too!
Thank you for a wonderful year. Thank you most for joining me on this journey. Your ongoing encouragement and advice--well, it's the best gift you could ever give IMHO.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

Wow! I loved coming and checking this. I have been looking forward to getting back to it all day! :) Each of you are so inspirational, so encouraging and such a complete and total motivator for me to continue this path--this path to health and to a more fulfilling life. I feel as if I am able and READY to give like never before. Wow, I just had no idea.
Thank you. I thank each and every one of you for helping to make my day special.
Dinner was good. We went to the planned place and I opted for Miso soup, grilled vegetables and grilled scallops and shrimp. I left the rice. I was going to do Sushi but I decided to splurge a little. Aside from the oil, it was an a-ok choice I THINK.
The details if you are interested.
My hubby got me this cake. HYSTERICAL! I wear this TShirt that I love often. It says in BIG letters on the front, "Are you a good witch or a bad witch?" At the bottom of the tshirt there is striped leggings coming from underneath the house. Anyway, my cake was a WITCH! It said, "good witch" across her chest. Beside the cake (on the tray) was written, "39 & Lookin' Fine!" LOL--too funny! I loved it. When I came home today @ 5 the house was completely dark. There was a scary sounds CD playing---anyway as I walked through the house my kids and hubby all started chasing me wearing Halloween costumes! OOOhhhh I loved it! I am a FALL FANATIC! I had Halloween balloons, a huge bouquet of fall flowers, Halloween partyware, etc. For my present? I got the LEOPARD Snuggie! I have wanted one forever.
Oh, also a sabateur reared her UGLY, UGLY head today and brought me a GIGANTIC FLAN! I graciously thanked her for it and accepted it. (Despite countless times I have requeseted her NOT to bring food to my home.) On the way to dinner, I phoned a close Venezuelan friend and asked her if she would like it. She was glad to have it! So, it found a new home very quickly! :)
I had two pieces of cake with buttercream frosting. The cake is already gone to a new home as well. I allowed my kids to have two pieces each! My hubby also ate two pieces. We all voted as a family to let it go. Neither of my kids finished both pieces and was so glad to see they voluntarily left them there.
