Eating/Ironing My Way Through My Birthday

Everyone who knows me knows that I LOVE food. I really love butter, and cookies, and salad, and bacon, and ICC*, and Chinese food, and Mexican food and junk food, and....well...........just about any food.

So what better way to celebrate my 29th birthday than to EAT! Seriously, it's all about THE FOOD, okay, and the people, cuz no one likes to eat alone!

Brian and I got up and went to Sam#3 for some eggs (over medium), bacon (extra crispy), hashbrowns (extra crispy), and toast (extra butter) washed down with ICC.

Just a couple hours later, I was starving. I went to lunch at
I almost always order one of two things: this omelette
with bacon, jack cheese and avocado

or a small Chopped Cobb Salad with French Onion Soup and a Buttermilk Spice Muffin (with EXTRA butter).
It wasn't a hard decision since I pretty much came to lunch straight from breakfast and I already knew the dinner menu. Phew!
Luckily, dinner wasn't until 6:30. That gave me time to go home and wait for friends and family to come by bearing gifts. And while I was waiting, you'll never guess what I did! Iron a set of sheets! Seriously, I need some heavy duty analysis. And just so you know, I no longer FOLD my ironed sheets. THAT was really bugging me.........iron them so there are no wrinkles...fold them and wrinkle them. I iron and minimally fold them to HANG on a hanger. Someone should consider giving me a gift card to a therapist for my next birthday!
But hey, at least I don't iron my children's UNDERshirts anymore. I'm cured of that. And I certainly DO NOT iron my children's sheets
So after the ironing and gift receiving, it was time for............FOOD! Unbelievably, I was starving when dinner came around. We went to my mom's for the best meal of the day!
Prime Rib (I like mine a little more toward well, so I got the end cut), Popovers (two - with BUTTER), Green Salad with Feta and Pomegranate, Twice Baked Potatoes, and a Birthday Razzleberry Pie with Ice Cream.
I did get lots of nice presents from everyone. Each gift was really thoughful. My gift givers were no slouches. But I can't deny that food is the way to my heart.
I can't believe I woke up hungry this morning. A phenomenon that never ceases to amaze me.
So all in all, it was a very successful birthday: FOOD, FRIENDS, gifts, crisp sheets, and FUN!
