Birthday Journal
A week ago friday was my birthday. F had to be at a work thing that night, which saddened me at first. Birthdays are important to me, and I had been hoping to spend it with him. He more than made up for it though. He came over thursday night, to spend the night with me. It was fairly late so we couldn't spend tons of time together, but we talked for a bit and cuddled.

Friday morning, he got up before me, before I had to be be up for work, and made me a delicious breakfast. He lured me out of bed with coffee, once it was made.

I really like the fact that he knows how I like my coffee. I like when he makes it for me. It feels so very coupley.

I came downstairs to find baked french toast casserole. Creme brule flavored, or something like that. It had peaches on it, it was all gooey and sugary and delicious. We couldn't eat nearly as much as he'd made, but I had two pieces anyway. It was really good, and it was nice to spend a leisurely birthday morning.

Then I went off to work, and he went back to sleep for awhile.

I had a really busy day at work, with a long (IPM) meeting and a Cleveland guy in town. My team took me to lunch though, which was nice.

Despite the busy day, or perhaps because of it, things slowed down drastically at 4pm. I left work somewhat early, figuring that it made no sense to start something new at 4:30 on a friday, especially a birthday friday.

I went home, then met up with some family. My sister lives quite near, but my parents live in Chicago. Somewhat last minute, they decided to visit for my birthday! It was unexpected, but welcome. Sis made arrangements for the four of us to have fondue. We met at The Melting Pot.

The meal was huge, even though we kept trying not to eat toooo much. (We failed) There was cheese fondue for start, then some salad, two kinds of meat fondue, then chocolate fondue for desert. And wine, and I had a chocolate martini. Yum, what a meal! It was a nice relaxed long meal and conversation, catching up with my parents who had just returned from Europe.

After dinner, we all came back to my house for a bit. Mom and Dad gave us a couple of souvenirs from their trip, and we talked a bit more. Eventually we all got very sleepy and they left, since my Sis was kindly putting them up for the night.

It worked out to be a really excellent birthday!

Read like you had a great birthday, I usually land up having dinner alone.

I always make sure to arrange to spend part of the day with a friend or two -- it's important to me. This one went remarkably well though, yes. *happy*

Happy belated birthday! Sounds like it was lots of fun. Mmmm... fondue.

Just curious - does F = thatguychuck? Feel free to not answer, I was just stumped. ;)

thank you!

Yes, Chuck F. I was already using the letter "C" when I met Chuck two plus years ago, so I assigned him the letter F. I don't like to use names on the main part of my journal, in an effort to be a wee bit discrete. In comments, it's not such an issue.

The Melting Pot is where we go for celebrations, too. Though we never do more than cheese and chocolate anymore since the full meal is just Too Much Food.

Glad you had a very happy birthday! Are you telling how old you are?

Yeah, it was LOTS of food. But yummy.

I'm 35 now. Hard to believe.... Seems like it goes up every year. (;

You're still younger than me, and always will be, so don't complain!
:)

Now, as for that baked french toast ... can I get the recipe?
