We ate lunch at a wonderful bistro downtown. Then we walked to the local Co-op, where we browsed organic stuff and I bought my first Tea Tree oil. Then we went to the local women's running store where I got custom fitted for new running shoes, and Brian bought me the shoes as my gift.
As a side note, I thought that was the perfect way to give me a gift. You see, Brian is petrified of giving me any sort of clothing or accessory item. He seems to think I am picky. Plus he gets offended if I take something back that he's given me. And he knows I know that, so then he constantly wonders if I really like what he gave me, or if I'm just keeping it because I know he would be crushed if I took it back. So finally, the perfect solution. We go shopping together, which means we get to spend time together, plus Brian can confidently buy something that I like and that fits. Why didn't we think of that sooner?
After shopping we went back to my girlfriend's house to pick up the kids and ended up hanging out and eating cookie dough. Plus she sent us home with cookies and a cake. I blame her for my soft middle section.
And as if we hadn't eaten enough, we went out to dinner, followed by two different cakes at home.
I won't be eating for a week, but I will be basking in the memories of a wonderful birthday. Thanks everyone!
Alternate blog title could have been "All About Brian". He's so handsome.
