On Turning 37

I had a fantastic birthday.  Thank you for all of the well wishes. I can't believe I am 37 years old already.  Time really flies when you are having fun.  Here is a little recap of my day.

Husband and I have a tradition of birthday flowers and blood orange mimosas first thing on my birthday   Husband juices the blood oranges and everything.  I feel quite spoiled.

He also made me a decadent breakfast that consisted of bacon and cinnamon bread French toast with a berry compote.  It was ah-mazing.

We went to go see Warm Bodies, which we really liked.  Original story and an overall cute movie.  I am not going to lie.  I was really there for the popcorn.

Note:  When did movies get so expensive?  When I was in high school they were like $3.75 with a student discount.  Can students even afford to go to the moves these days?

He took me to dinner  at a local steakhouse which had great food. 

And really good passion fruit martinis.  I am a total cocktail girl.  No, this birthday was not low calorie by any stretch of the imagination.

A little birthday cake to wrap up the day.  Could you say no to this?  

In case you are wondering, here are a few birthday present highlights.  I am really into my jewelry and got this ultra-sonic jewelry cleaner, which I immediately put to use, cleaning everything I owned.  So far, I am really impressed with it.  I wonder if it will replace my silver polishing cloths in the long run.  Does anyone have any experience with these?  

I have been dying to try the new Naked nail polish set out.  Each color looks more perfect than the last.

Husband took me on a little detour to Tiffany's, where I received this beautiful charm bracelet (on the far left).  Husband got me my first charm as an early Valentine's Day present.  It is so beautiful, I almost can't stand it.  Almost.

I also got new charms for my Pandora bracelet, which is coming together nicely.  Does anyone else have a charm bracelet?  I was thinking of doing a post on my Pandora bracelet.  Is this something you would be interested in?  

I am pretty sure I passed out in a food coma that night.  Calories don't count on your birthday, right?

Sounds like an amazing birthday! I only go to the movies if it's before noon and we can get the $6 price at an AMC theater. Otherwise, it's just way too much money.
