After my horrible week, I must say my birthday turned out to be quite amazing.
First of all, I was greeted with many kind, encouraging, and uplifting birthday comments from my readers both on here and Facebook. Thank you so much!
I did have to work yesterday, but my boss let me work a short day...and have today off! Yippeee! My boss is so awesome!
love their salad and breadsticks).
Side note: Do you ever get tired of servers who treat you differently the minute you order 2 waters? Ugh. She was so cheerful when she first came to the table, but when we ordered waters instead of a bottle of wine...that was the end of that! (And she really didn't like us when we split an entree!) She rushed our food out before we had barely taken a bite out of our salad. And we didn't get mints! Ha Ha. I just don't get it. I was a server at one time, and I never treated my customers differently based on what they ordered. It's just not right. Little do our servers know that even though we always get waters and split an entree, I will probably leave them a bigger tip than somebody who orders a $50 meal. I tip extremely high, because I remember what it was like to be a server. She was pretty rude, but I still left a high tip. =)
My husband and I then came home, watched my favorite movie (Pride and Prejudice), and played backgammon. My hubby gave me some great gifts - some earrings he made, a "learn how to play the violin" book to go with the violin he surprised me with at Christmas, a new wallet because mine is falling apart, and some other things!
I also got some really nice gifts from both sets of parents - goodies for the kitchen, knitting materials/supplies, homemade gifts (the best kind), and books!
Today is awesome for a couple of reasons:
I got to sleep in, take my time getting up, and blog throughout the day (rather than cramming it all in at night when I get home from work).
Our taxes are done! Yay! Tax season is always unbearable for us. My husband is self-employed, so needless to say taxes are not fun for us. We never get a refund -- we always pay. And seeing as we live paycheck to paycheck, we always have to save up the money over time to pay our taxes. Kyle is with the accountant right now going over everything, so that's just a huge burden off of our shoulders. *sigh of relief*
Today we get to go switch cell phone service! Yay! Goodbye Sprint...Hello Metro PCS! I'll be doing a blog post about this in the near future. But let's just say we will be saving a good chunk of money every month by doing this.
My husband is making me a surprise lunch today. I'm not sure what it is, but I'm excited! I'll have to tell you all about it later on. =)
My Aunt Iliana is coming in town tonight from Colorado (she's my age, weird, I know). I'm so excited! We're going to have a blast this weekend! That's her in the picture below! :)
So that's my birthday weekend fun. Just wanted to share. Thanks again for being the best readers ever, and happy birthday to many of you who told me your or your husband's birthday was this weekend as well!
What About You: Have any fun plans this weekend?
