:)) Happy Birthday To Me! ;D

I took the day off from work today because I just could not fathom sitting at my desk for 8 hours on my day of birth. Yuck! And my company was nice enough this year to give everyone a free vacation day in the month of their birthday.

So today I will be getting some stuff done around the house, baking myself a blueberry pie, getting a massage, and maybe fit in a little shopping if there is time. Last night Nick and I went out to dinner at our favorite, most fanciest restaurant in DC, CityZen in the Mandarin Oriental. If you live in or around DC this is a must go to for special occasions. We had the 6 course chef’s tasting menu and it did not disappoint (except for my undercooked lobster, which they made up for). Plus Nick smoothly mentioned that it was my birthday and they gave us a couple nice extras throughout the night including a superb mini red velvet cupcake.

I also hope to be able to write some posts for this blog on my day off, since I seem to be running out of those. Although Nick is currently messing around with our main computer so who knows if any of the pictures that we have saved will make it through to the other side of this latest reformat.

We should be back tomorrow to regular posting with this week’s Craving Ellie in My Belly recipe Oven Baked Onion Rings.

I’ll leave you with this video that I found on You Tube when I typed in Happy Birthday. Watch it to the end. Tehe.
