simply spoiled

I love birthdays. Usually other people's but I can't turn down a day of being spoiled.

First, my boss gave me a $100 gift card to the Plaza. Holy moly generous! My coworkers also took me out to lunch at Rudy's, my new favorite Mexican restaurant. While I was gone stuffing myself with tostadas, flautas and fried ice cream, Shea came by my work and delivered purple roses.

I got singing phone calls from my grandma and aunt and later my parents who are vacationing/working in Long Beach. Next, Shea made me a delicious dinner of mashed potatoes and peas as requested. He added a side of meatballs to make it a full meal. We had a surprise dessert of four cupcakes from Babycakes. (Hubs had a very busy lunch hour of flower, cupcake and present gathering). 

They all had vanilla frosting since I hate the chocolate kind and had cake flavors of pumpkin, red velvet, chocolate and white. White with vanilla frosting is still my favorite of all time. What can I say, I like the classics.

Shea hit on my two favorite passions with gifts - cooking and running. First, Nike Dri-fit running pants and running gloves (with a sweet key pocket!).

Then these adorable cherry cannisters I've been eyeing for quite some time to replace our not-so-great current cannisters. Turns out the "hey, hey pay attention. I like these" comments worked.

For the rest of the night I got to lay on the couch, talk, watch a movie and go to bed early. Dreamy.

  1. I love when they listen to your "I like these comments." That's key to a successful relationship ;-).
