Birthday Treats!

So I know that yesterday I said I was planning on sticking to my diet during the day today and then having some treats tonight. But ... this morning I decided that that plan didn't sound like so much fun. So I had a cookie for breakfast. :) When I got to work, I decided to buy myself a birthday treat. Everyone around here always has treats from Stella's Bakery, and since I'm always on my diet foods during the week, I never get to partake in the treats.

The bakery is a cute little place, very reminiscent of bakeries in France. I was charmed by all the croissants and different cakes. I was expecting the standard donut selection, but they didn't have any. So I picked out this tasty-looking layered-thingy. I have no idea what it's called, except "HEAVEN"! :)

Heaven ...

Since it has fruit on it, that means it's healthy, right?!

I've had a couple of my standard turkey-and-almond meals, with some cookies interspersed. I kinda feel like I'm on a bit of a sugar high right now, even though I'm sleepy (trying to wean myself off caffeine).

My day started off with Ed (my 17 lb cat) laying on my head and purring at 7:30 am. Jerry was so excited for me to open my presents, that I actually opened a couple last night at midnight. He tried to give them to me earlier by handing me a plastic bag with items in it. I informed him that there was a large bag filled with gift bags and tissue paper under the bed in the spare room, and he could select any bag to use to put my gift in. He's a smart guy, so he took the hint and disappeared into the spare room, only to emerge 2 minutes later with a huge smile on his face and 2 gift bags in his hand.

"Open them now!!" He exclaimed. I laughed and told him I wanted to wait until it was actually my birthday. He's so cute - he gets so excited about giving me gifts (and he always does a great job picking things out!). So I opened one of the gift bags last night. He gave me a movie and a book, and then informed me that he always thought it was dumb to give books as gifts until he realized that I'd absolutely love to receive a book as a gift. LOL

This morning I opened the other present - he got me a cute shirt to wear to work. Proof that he actually DOES listen to me! I've been complaining that I only have like 3 shirts to wear to work. So I'm wearing my new shirt today along with super cute sandals that have thus far required 3 band-aids on my feet. But they're cute. And they match my outfit.

I feel so loved today - I've gotten a bunch of birthday wishes from people I know from various times in my life. I love social networking sites! :)

Tonight we're going to a Washington Nationals baseball game - my first pro baseball game in over 5 years! I'm so excited! Haven't been to a game since I moved to Montana 5 years ago.

Jerry just pulled up to my office to pick me up, so I'm gonna head out to have some ice cream cake (more proof that Jerry listens to me - he bought an ice cream cake today!!) before heading to the game. I'm gonna enjoy my treats, cuz I'm back on the clean foods wagon tomorrow!


  1. OOH sounds like a FAB birthday and I'm glad you are going to splurge on ice cream cake and had your piece of heaven!! YEAH!!
    Have a great night!

  2. That fruit delight looks delicious! Glad to hear your man took your hints and you have a great start to your day!
