Musical Monday - Bad Things & How I Spent My Birthday

Thank you all for the birthday wishes!! Darn, you all know how to make a girl feel special. :-)

My birthday was great!! Friday, the girls at work did cake for me. I'm kinda surprised that they remembered because I didn't mention my upcoming b-day. My dad's birthday was Friday, so we did dinner for him and then a super yummy tiramisu cake.

Saturday, I went and got my hair trimmed. I would have liked to get a mani/pedi too... but it was a busy day, so I'll have to do that some night this week. Then, I played on the computer for a while, and did a little window shopping. Next up was lunch with my parents - and my dad's first time in Cheesecake Factory. I LOVE that place, but I don't think he was too impressed. Ah, at least he can say that he's been there now.... Following lunch were a few more errands, then cake with my parents and off to my cousin Kirstren's house.

Yep, I spend a fun-filled evening with Kirstren (aka my other sibling) and her little highly energetic little boy. I'm pretty sure that everyone in Massachusetts knew it was my birthday; he's GOOD at getting the word out to passersby! :-) A few errands, out to dinner and then back to her house for a fire pit! YAY!! There's nothing like a good fire pit and glass (or two) of wine with someone you enjoy hanging out with. Her man-friend graced us with his presence and we capped off our night watching the Food Channel, listening to a thunderstorm and playing on CrackBerry.com. It may sound tame to you...but I had a blast!

My new obsession is True Blood. I'm reading the second Charlaine Harris "Sookie Stackhouse" book and have made it through the entire first season of the show. For some reason, I really like the theme song. :-)

OK, off to watch tonight's episode of True Blood!


  1. Sounds like a wonderful birthday! :-)

    I love the theme song too, I had it on my blog for a few days. I really want to read the Sookie books, but I'm afraid it'll be so different I might not like the books or worse, I might not like the show anymore!

  2. p.s. I forgot. I have an award for you!!!

  3. I'll have to definitely start watching that show, I've heard some great reviews about it =)

  4. Sounds like you had a wonderful birthday. I love the cheesecake factory, what kind of cheesecake did you have? Oh yum!

    Have fun getting a mani/pedi this week. I love getting a pedi, I'm not allowed to have my nails done because of school, but I love when the massage my feet. Ah. :)

  5. Sounds like a perfect birthday!!
    Cheesecake Factory is so yummy, I've only had it once.
    Enjoy your mani/pedi...I'm jealous and wishing I could join you for one as well!

  6. SO FUN! Cheesecake Factory is DIVINE! Not to sound trite, but their cheesecake is amazing!! LOL

    Glad you had a good birthday!

  7. Sounds like a great birthday!! I love the Cheesecake factory but my Mom and Dad aren't big fans of it..I think it's just too overwhelming for them. My mom got one of those crazy salads and didn't even know where to start!

    Fire pits and wine with good fam/friends are the BEST!!! :)

  8. Looks like it was just what you wanted! Glad you had a great time. :)

    mrosev14: what type of school can you not have your nails done?>??!?!?!?

  9. I hope you had a terrific birthday. I know I'm late, but I'm out playing catch up as our son's b-day was Friday. Super busy with party prep last week.

  10. I'm so glad that you had a nice birthday and a night if front of the fire pit with some wine sounds perfect. The Cheesecake Factory is so good. I haven't been there in forever.

    I love True Blood and the theme song is really good!

  11. I am super addicted to True Blood! I love all the characters.

    I adore the theme song. I have it on my music player on my blog. Super sexy lyrics.
