Birthday Aftermath

I had such a great birthday! Loren always makes me wait until after dinner to open my presents, so all day long I was anticipating what was in the packages on the table. His mom decorated the kitchen in a Mexican fiesta theme and baked me a triple chocolate cake. Yummmm.

After Loren got off of work, we came home and he gave me a nice bottle of wine that we took to dinner with us. I wanted to go to the Spaghetti Factory so we went there, drank our wine and had a nice dinner.

We came home and opened presents...Loren got me hot pink SCUBA fins, gloves and a hot pink SCUBA bag. Now I am completely coordinated! :)

His parents got me a gift certificate to go diving on Saturday. Since I haven't been in the water in almost two years, I am really excited that I will get to go knock the dust off of my fins before heading to Mexico. They also got me a great Mexican cookbook and a beautiful book on the ocean.

The kids all drew me pictures and Paul, Loren's little brother, made me the beautiful picture with seashells.

All in all, it was a great birthday. I missed my family terribly but I got lots of calls and messages on Myspace that made me feel better.
