Happy Birthday to me!

Yes today is my birthday! And I had a great day! Ate way too much sugar loaded foods today but what they heck, it was my birthday.

When I left to go to work this morning, I stopped at Starbucks and got a Cafe Mocha! Love my coffee in the mornings. When I arrived at work, upon entering the building the receptionist was smiling even more than she normally does and as I headed toward my office, I saw a sign on my door that my secretary had put up saying it was my birthday. Several staff wished a happy one.

About 30 minutes later, my secretary asked I could go to the conference room with her to show me something, several staff that work in my division were in the room and sang Happy Birthday. We then had donuts!! My favorite chocolate covered with creamy stuffing!!!! No calories here, right! There were some lovely flowers on the table and those had just been delivered and were from my DH! I had already gotten other presents from him at home prior to work so this was just a really pleasant surprise.

I had lunch with a friend and we went to the Hotel Roanoke for one of their fabulous and very tasty buffet lunches. I had a salad and crab bisque soup and banana cream pie!! Again no calories here.

Late afternoon, another division was celebrating all January birthdays so I got a piece of chocolate cake with fabulous white icing. I only ate a small portion. I am one of these people that I just as soon eat the icing and forget the cake!! So I am sure you know what small portion I ate.

I will be at CURVES first thing in the AM and will have to do more than the 30 minute program.

No dinner was necessary and DH and I had already planned to have my birthday dinner tomorrow night! Thinking about CURVES, perhaps an hour is in order.

This evening after getting home from work, I spent time in my sewing room. I made good progress on my new jacket and should finish it tomorrow. I took some photos of the jacket showing my progress and will download from camera to computer later.

My sugar high has subsided so I am going to go sit and watch TV and look through my new Chico's and Nordstrom's catalogs. Hopefully I will see something inspiring for me to copy and sew.
