This was the birthday breakfast:
Tart frozen yogurt from Red Mango. Did you know that tart frozen yogurt is always sweetened? I did not. I wish that some place would make really really tart froyo, but this was pretty delicious anyway.
Bobby liked his breakfast too (Sarku Japan… I stole some. It’s actually really good fast food.):
Then we shopped! We got some espresso samples at Williams Sonoma…
And I got “cookie” tea from Lupicia. I also got a bunch of clothes. I was a happy girl.
“Black tea scented with an image of freshly baked caramel cookies. Best served with milk.” I had it plain, thank-you-very-much.
Last night I brought back something that’s been missing in my life.
Oat bran. This bowl had almond butter from Trader Joe’s and Jay Robb vanilla protein powder, courtesy of my sweet sweet friend Heather! I love it! She sent me some other birthday goodies that I’ve been enjoying and will share soon. I cook up my oat bran with lots of water, then wait for it to get creamy. I pour it in a bowl and put it in the freezer so it cools and gets super-thick.
I have another confession. I spent my birthday night organizing because I love it. I made a jewelry box out of a cardboard box and some pretty tissue paper, then I arranged all of my jewelry in it. I cleaned my closet and made a huge bag to give to Goodwill. I went through the bathroom cabinets and thew out the old stuff. It was possibly the best birthday ever. (I’m actually being serious.)
I forgot to say yesterday, but this cool chick shares my birthday We both watched Biggest Loser last night (pretty good, I think). Overall, a great birthday!
