Burnin' Down Da House

Hello! So I had a fantastic birthday today. Kevin and I got to sleep in today till 9:30 am. Les and Dave kept bugging Kevin to get up but left me alone. Then we had a traditional English breakfast - I had to make the eggs though cause Kevin claims not to be able to do fried eggs. After breakfast Kevin produced all the cards/gift that had been mailed to me that he took into protective custody. I guess I should be thankful for that otherwise I would open them all during the week instead of waiting till my actual birthday. Yes, I know I'm bad. Very, very bad. Kevin got me Rock Band. I'd been wanting this game because I LOVE the drums. We then rocked out all day - even skipping Church (don't tell MyDad!) and grocery shopping - took a break to watch the football games, and then rocked out some more.

We then got all dressed up, took some pictures of us and went to dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. I decided to splurge a little and went ahead and had a drink. I'm pretty sure I'm not KU so I had a Flying Gorilla (Fresh Banana, Chocolate, Ice Cream, Créme de Cacao and DeKuyper Banana Liqueur). Best. Drink. Ever. It's like a Chocolate Elvis from Planet Smoothie, but better! And the best part? The waitress carded me! Ten years later and I'm still being carded.

When it came time to order dessert (cheesecake of course), I was torn between ordering the peanut butter one and the cookie dough one. Then on the next page, I saw that they offered Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cheesecake. Awesomeness!! While we were waiting to order, Kevin asked me if I had blown out the candles I had lit for our pictures.

Me: "Um, no, I thought you did."
Kev: "No, you did, right?"
Me: "Noooooo."
Kev: "Are you serious?"
Me: "Maybe we should get these cheesecakes to go."

So we ordered the cheesecakes, finally got our check from "Susie SlowService", paid and rushed home. No firetrucks in our street. Phew! We walked in and the house was fine, candles still burning nicely and the dogs all excited about our doggy bags. So much excitement! But all's good now. Might play a few more songs of Rock Band and then go to bed.

Tomorrow morning I POAS and then call the doctor and tell them "I got a BFN. Could be because I didn't ovulate like I told you last week!" Arg.

Happy Belated Birthday!

Maybe for Christmas you should ask for some of those flameless candles. Of course, I'm one to talk, open flames make me do dumb things. Never let me around fire works... or bonfires.

Happy birthday! I'm glad you had a good day :-) I love Rock Band! The drums are my favorite too! And your whole dinner experience sounds delicious. I've never been to Cheesecake Factory even though we have one in Charlotte. One of these days we'll have to check it out. The whole candle thing is funny, but it probably wasn't while you were sitting in the restaurant wondering if your house was on fire! It sounds just like something my husband and I would do though!

Hi! I'm amazed at how much we have in common, from being born 6 days apart (I'm Dec 1 77) to the Richmond connection (my grandparents lived there for years and I went to U.Va.) to the whole Fertility Friend obsession :) Glad you stopped by my blog; I'll start keeping up with yours and I wish you the best! So sorry about the BFN...the POAS just adds insult to injury. By the end of my IF journey I wasn't POAS at all because it just made me mad. But I have a good friend (Deanna at The Open Door) who had a parallel IF journey to mine and then one day, out of the blue pretty much, she got her BFP and practically fell over. Hoping for the same for you! :)

p.s. were you born in Richmond? I was born in Charlottesville...
