*My birthday was a month ago today. I guess I could finally tell you what Mr. HH did, huh? He told me we were going to dinner at a nice restaurant (with reservations!) and that The Contessa would be watching Indy. We got on the b6servation time wrong, it was 7, not 6. It was 5:45 and we were approximately 15 minutes away. Great a whole hour. When we got off the bus we went over to a flower seller and he bought me some beautiful flowers and we walked around for a while. We crossed the river and when we got near Le Coq, he drug me down a side street to look around. I suspected nothing and happily followed. We circumvented the restaurant for about 45 minutes. I should have suspected something when he didn't complain when I made him come with me from shop to shop looking. Normally he HATES this, but I figured he wasn't complaining because it was my birthday. Ha! Finally we walked to Le Coq and went in and there sat the Contessa, Hoosier Mom and a few other friends! Surprise! How awesome, was that? BTW, the Coq au Vin nearly made me weep it was so good.
*I made this cake for Principessa's 6th birthday earlier this month. Cute, huh? Principessa liked it. As you can tell by the big smile.
*Indy baked me a cake. Mr. HH put a princess tiara on it. He bought me one too.
So, Indy and Mr. HH decide to light the candles.
Me: I think we should take that tiara off.
Mr. HH: Why?
Me: It might catch fire.
Mr. HH: Don't be silly.
15 seconds later....WOOSH!
Once we put the fire out, we laughed really hard. I told him he really knew how to make me feel young.
*I had to get another cortisone shot in my foot today. It hurt. A lot.
*Molly Ringwald is on the Today Show. Why does she still look EXACTLY the same?
*It's a gorgeous day but thanks to my allergies, I can't enjoy it.
*Have you seen the new Eclipse trailer? Awesomeness. Edward. Mmmmmmmmm.
*I dreamed that I set up a breakfast for Mr. HH and Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. I told Mr. HH about this on the phone and he got really excited. I reminded him that wasn't really going to happen and he seemed somehow deflated. I mean I guess it could happen. You know, if Paul and Ringo read my blog and think it's a really good idea. Why wouldn't they?
*I miss Katie Couric on the Today Show.
*I've been wearing open toe shoes for a week now! Yay for warmer weather!!!!
*On one of the military families boards I frequent we were discussing whether or not USAA (a military bank) would be included in government banking reforms or not. Someone made a comment that has to be the single best thing I've ever read on a military message board:
Urgh getting so frustrated with this gov't interfering with military!
I'll just let that sink in.
*I started Jillian Michaels 30 Shred. She is evil. Evil. Level 1 nearly killed me. I can't imagine what's on level 3. A facebook friend (actually he's a former boyfriend who's now gay) said level 3 likely involves water boarding. I fear he might be right.
*Oh, the irony.
