Happy Friday Eve all! The Husband made sure he got up at 5 something for me yesterday just so I could have something to open as soon as I woke up on my Birthday! He was SO EXCITED to give me his card that he said he almost woke me up at midnight just to give it to me. He usually pulls out all the stops for specials days, but, little did I know that his card this time was going to say this…..
He has always been my BIGGEST Cheer Leader in healthy eating and never complains no matter how many “science projects” I make him try. I never in a million years expected him to say he would join me at my Weight Watcher’s Meetings just to show he supports US leading a healthier lifestyle.
I think it’s because he saw Charles Barkley, but, I didn’t tell him that I know he doesn’t have anything to lose, but, it’s nice knowing he wants to go along for the ride!
He then made us “breakfast” by heating up the Slow Cooker Egg, Sausage and Potato Casserole LOL….(5 points+)
While I scratched the lottery tickets he gave me in my card. I won $15! He also played lotto numbers with our birthdays….told ya, he is cheesy and I LOVE it!
When I got to work, I was given a fun card from my co-worker telling me that calories do NOT count on my birthday…how cute is this card?!
The rest of my day was pretty work oriented with my phone going off with all types of birthday wishes…..Thanks again everyone ~ I am still smiling as I type!
The Husband actually packed my lunch too and each dish had a sweet post-it note on it.
Lunch started with veggies & ranch (2 points+)
and finished with a HUGE Piece of Baked, BACON, Butternut & Polenta Casserole (9 points+)
The Husband asked me to call him 20 minutes before I left the office because he had to “prepare” for my birthday. I was pretty sure he was “making and/or doing something” like his human card.
Little did I know, he would tell me to pull off the freeway in Davis, just so he could meet me for sushi at my favorite place ~ Mikuni’s!
Miso Soup (2 points+)
Then, we shared their “small” Organic Green Salad ~ I took off most of the crunchies (4 points+)
Did I mention I LOVE this roll?! It was INCREDIBLE!! That would be an entire line of Sriracha on the right that I rolled each piece in. (10 points+ estimate)
After dinner we made a quick PIT STOP at home so I could open up my gift.
He bought this fish I was eyeing at Home Goods to add to our Caribbean art collection!
Then, drum roll, please…….a RADAR DETECTOR! The story that goes with this is even funnier! He did all types of research on what the best radar detector was to buy based on reviews, but, wait….it gets better.
He asked his friend who is a police officer as well as my Dad a retired police officer ~ Funny guy!
He said that Scooter tends to race all around town and I might need a little help in knowing when to slow him down ~ haha!
In keeping with the “Birthday” Theme (remember, he already built the track!), we headed over to Driven Raceway to Race Go Karts!
You start out by creating a profile…..I was Danica P of course!!!
He named his car Scooter II because……….
All these cars are Scooters Friends!!!
We pretty much had the track to ourselves…….They put you in the “pit” to describe the rules and flags before you start…..
Then, you spend about 10 minutes racing in circles! The go karts go SO FAST at 45 mph…..so fun!
As much as I tried though, my car just couldn’t beat Scooter II!
When we arrived back home, The Husband’s mom and gran left me another fun birthday gift ~ Heart Shaped Pasta and a big flower! They all know me so well lol…..
Even though I DID pass up the cake yesterday, I totally made up for it today with a small Pizookie at BJ’s Brewery during our work lunch….Now, I could justify a warm freshly baked cookie with homemade vanilla bean any day…..and since it was for my birthday ~ it doesn’t count
I am meeting my Mom and Sis on Saturday to continue my birthday week fun ~ I cannot wait!
Oh, and, as if my Birthday Week couldn’t get any better………
