sunday we went to my parent's house for dinner and games. my mom made a delicious dinner, the table was decorated so cute, i got to use the special red plate and dessert was wonderful. it is fun to live so close to them. dave and i played hooky from work on monday, my actual birthday, and it was *fantastic* we slept in and then i opted for a birthday breakfast rather than a birthday dinner. i got my favorite french toast at the original pancake house
after breakfast we went shopping and i had a great time trying on all sorts of shoes (as illustrated below).
i didn't end up with new shoes or a new purse like i had intended, but i did get a new coat and some "birthday" jeans so it wasn't a wasted day at the mall. after shopping we went bowling and i ended up beating dave (my final score that is). i must say i didn't do too bad...which is quite the surprise. it must have been a birthday miracle.
i still can't believe that i am 27. it seems much older than 26. nonetheless, i had a great time celebrating!
