another year gone

Yesterday was my birthday. It sure didn't feel like it. But, it was and now I'm another year older. When I was a teenager, I pretty much always felt my age. Now, I always tell my age wrong! When I'm in a store and get asked my age, I always stutter and say "twenttttyyy----" and it actually takes me a second to remember how old I am! When we moved into this house earlier this year, our neighbor's daughter asked me how old I was. I told her 22!! I can't believe I told her I was a year older than I actually was. Phew!

We celebrated my birthday by going to a small Christmas parade (my first one ever). Then we headed to dinner and ate at P.F. Changs! By far, our favorite restaurant. Both the kids were extremely well behaved at dinner and we got our meal right away. We've eaten dinner there quite a bit, but I think last night was our best meal yet. It was great!

After dinner we headed to the outlet mall and scored some goodies. Aeropostale had a bunch of polos and t-shirts marked down $1.99 or $2.99. The original prices on there were like $19.50-$34.50! No way I would ever pay that much for just a shirt.

As far as gifts go, I got a PURPLE digital camera from my hubby and I got a beautiful bracelet from one of my bestfriends, Rebekah. And my favorite sister ever gave me a Victoria's Secret giftcard.. a nice amount, too! ;) But, I think the best present of all was when my hubby let me sleep in until 11am!!! Both of us went to bed very late, as in almost 3am, so I know he was tired, too!! I'm blessed.. :~)

Well Happy Belated Birthday lady! Sounds like your day was well spent. We have a couple of things in common already...I can NEVER remember my age. My husband always have to remind me of exactly how old I am. And girl....I love me some PF Chang's. I seriously could eat there everyday! lol!

Sunday was your birthday?! How could I have missed that? I'm sorry! =( Happy belated birthday!!

Oh, and Aero has an outlet? Really? I already thought their stuff was super cheap, so I cant even imagine it getting even cheaper. What a great deal! Was there a Coach store at your outlet?
