Last week was my birthday.  The big 3-4.  Really, it wasn't that big and I don't necessarily feel any older.  But it was an enjoyable first birthday with my sweet baby boy.

First, we enjoyed a little dinner at Red Lobster.  We hardly eat out anymore so this was a special treat.  Plus, they have a birthday club so sign up for free food on your special day!
After walking around Half-Price Books for a while to burn off dinner, we finally headed to Cold Stone Creamery for ice cream.  Again, there's a birthday club!  Are you seeing a trend? We're serious about free stuff in this household.  Not only is it nice financially, but it stretches your birthday celebrations out as we still have several coupons to use - Culvers, Red Robin, and O'Charley'sMcAllister's gives you a $5 gift card (which is almost enough for a baked potato) for your birhday too, which I use to eat with sweet friend Maryann!  I'm going to get fat, y'all!

Seriously, the best little thing ever!

No ice cream for this little one until his first birthday!
All in all, it was a wonderful day.  James got my late mother's watch fixed for me, which was super thoughtful.  Plus I got sweet cards and phone calls from friends/family.  I'm looking forward to the adventures that 34 will bring - I'm sure there will be many.
