Birthday Bubbles

Thursday, April 5, 2012 - 
On the first day of birthday month, I celebrated with a great Sunday full of activities. This day was unexpected, because I was anticipating on sitting in the car with friends as we drove back from a great weekend in Missouri. Why? Because it was the March & April "12 of 2012" events. March was to take a day off together as a group, while April was a trip to Truman University, M & S' alma. But, do to unforeseen circumstances, hubs and I couldn't make the trip.

Instead, we enjoyed an unplanned weekend together. And of course, kicked of the birthday month with champagne.

One thing you must understand about me. I'm a firm believer that every person should always have a bottle of champagne on them. You just never know when you may need it like the first day of birthday month. And lucky for me, we had a bottle to kick start the month on the 1st. To continue this 30th celebration I'm having, I decided bubbles should be part of the fun.

And by champagne, prosecco or sparkling wine works just as well my friends.

So day 2 and 3 found me sipping on birthday bubbles. I think this bubble thing is here to stay. I'm just sayin'.

To compliment Monday's bubbles, hubs and I (in a collaborative effort of course) made din din. He made these great flour tortillas from scratch, while I sauteed up some chicken, onions and jalapenos with a variety of seasonings. A little bit of cheddar and we were good to go with quesadillas for dinner. They were absolutely delicious and not so bad (health wise) for us either.

The bottle was finished on day 3 of birthday month. And since bubbles couldn't be a repeat 'special treat' of the day, hubs and I decided to engage in a friendly battle of Wii Sports. It has been quite a while since we cracked out the Wii controls and I have to say, why did we ever stop? Sure, he beat me in bowling and golf, but barely.

Day 4 brought us semi-working out together. Yup, hubs said he would start working out for my birthday month. Well, that began with a semi-work out. By semi, I mean he rode his bike with the two pups while I ran. But I have to say, I quite enjoyed seeing them on the Monon here and there as they passed me or caught up (after passing me of course) as it made the run a tad bit more enjoyable.

What did day 5 bring? Well, guess you have to wait until tomorrow. But I can tell you, I'm celebrating everyday this month as always - entertaining each day with a little bit of birthday flair!
