Happy Birthday to me!

Today's the day....I'm officially 29 and feeling old. How did I get to almost 30 so quickly? I must admit that 29 is looking much better than 0 when you compare the pictures above. I must have had quite the birth experience considering the look on my face.

My dear hubby treated me to dinner at Rodizio Grill on Saturday...if you haven't been there, it's a must! Their bacon wrapped turkey is one of the best things I've ever feasted upon! We sat and chatted it up since Henry was at home snoozing with his Aunt Janelle on patrol (Thanks, Janelle!). It's amazing how much more food you can eat without a toddler present and how much more meaningful a conversation can be. I love, love, love my little man, but breaks are good! Some of my old Aggie roomies (like this one) and one of the best people in the world treated me to breakfast at The Original Pancake House this morning. It's another good one if you haven't been there. They have gazillions of pancake creations and some yummy omelettes. It was Biscuits and Gravy for me though.....I'm a sauce freak and can't escape that homey, hearty feeling when I eat them. Then we're off tonight on a little date with some other good ones. It's been a good birthday. The best kinds are food, friends and family. No gifts needed.

Now, just in case I haven't revealed enough about myself on this blog, here's a little more info. I got tagged by Kensie.

Happy Birthday Jess, at the rate your going you will look like a million bucks at 60. I still pee my pants laughing at your newborn pic.

Happy Birthday! I thought about you as I wrote the date on the board this morning. And yes, I remember singing all sorts of songs in elementary school. Milli Vanilli anyone?

That newborn pic is classic. Although I've never seen a newborn pic that is all that good looking.
