What a day it was

Today was my birthday. My Beloved surprised me by taking the day off, making me pancakes for breakfast, showering me with presents of gardening books and baking tools, and then and making an almost 6-hour long round trip (including lunch and a period of about an hour where we drove around in giant circles, hopelessly lost) to a yarn factory outlet far, far away.

It was excellent. All of it. And at the end of the day there was a great big piece of chocolate cake and a great big chocolate milkshake to wash it all down.

Excellent, excellent, excellent.

If you're going to turn 37, this is definitely the way to do it.

Happy Birthday!! I had no idea our birthdays were so close (you're a mere twelve days ahead of me on turning 37), or if I did I have conveniently forgotten due to old age... ummm wait.... ;-)

Sounds like a great day. :)

Yay! Happy Birthday Yesterday! That was seriously an awesome birthday--that sounds exactly like something I would love to do for my birthday. (Woo--wild women!) So how was the yarn outlet?

I didn't get a chance to mention that my first car was a Mercury Topaz :) An '89, I think. I'm glad she found a good home.

That was sooo sweet!

Quite romantic...well, not the yarn but the WHOLE DAY with him thinking of ONLY you and your favorite things.

I Hope that your thirty-seventh year on this earth is one filled with unforgettable beauty, love and happiness.

Happy belated birthday! I'm four months older than you. I tend to celebrate my onomastic because I hate having a birthday in winter. April is so much nicer!

Late to the party, but happy birthday! It sounds like a wonderful day.

(Though I have to admit, I originally read "a yarn factory outlet" as "a yam factory outlet" and was thinking, "what a strange place to go.")
