"Happy Birthday...

...just remember you are IN your thirties now." That's basically what Brad told me. I know he's just trying to soothe the irritating thought that he will turn 30 this year. Man, will I rub it in, too! He did, however, plan a very fun birthday date for me and made my birthday a special one. My day started off with the anticipated phone calls from my family (Triston, Dad, and the Lee Family Choir). I was invited to breakfast with my parents at Mimi's. Mmmm!

Then, we visited Brad's mom at school. Tess loved being part of the first-grade class and insisted on calling grandma "Teacher" the rest of the day. I also got to witness 25 first-graders speaking Mandarin Chinese. It was amazing! they understand everything their teacher was saying to them. They even sang "Happy Birthday" to me in Chinese. Wow! I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon of restorative yoga. Namaste! And then my "Night O'Fun" began. A bunch of friends met us at Asian Star for dinner. I forgot how delicious it is.

Then we headed to the lanes for some bowling. Brad and I joke about starting a bowling league with friends some day and after this it looks like we definitley need some practice first. I used to be such a good bowler (my claim to fame...sad, huh?). But, Brad and I did manage to pull off the high scores that night for our respective genders. Yeah! Any way you look at it, it was good ole fashioned, competitive fun!

Then, one last stop at our friends, the Francos, where we ate decadent, delicious, marvelous, cream-cheesy, chocolate masterpiece cake that sweet Brooke made for me! She's the best!

It was a great birthday! Thanks y'all! I don't mind being 31 if it's this fun! Brad, watch out, yours is comin'!
