I'm 28. Yay.

That's right folks, I turned 28 on Sunday. Although I've been feeling a bit under the weather, I did have a fun day. We started off bright and early by eating a delicious breakfast at the Pancake House in Anaheim. In honor of the owner's retirement, they served their amazing dishes at 1950's prices! For Less than $5, Joshua and I feasted on Dutch Babies, apple pancakes, potato pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, and coffee. Amazing! And we brought home leftovers. When we got home, I took a nap while my wonderful husband cleaned every nook and cranny of our home. (This was in part thanks to the tv being broken!) Then, we met my family for a late lunch at Lucille's BBQ.
We continued the party at our house with dessert, coffee and games. I was badly beaten at a fierce game of Scattergories. Doesn't anyone know they're supposed to let the birthday girl win?
One last stop of the day: To Bed, Bath, and Beyond to spend one of my giftcards. After too many minutes poking and squeezing all of the therapudic pillows, I decided on a winner. Unfortunately, it didn't work so well. I had one of the worst night's sleep ever! Alright, it wasn't the pillow, but the nasty head cold I had. I slept on it ALL day yesterday and it's as cozy as a pillow could be. Let's see if Joshua's birthday can beat all that!

Honey I forgot your birthday. So sorry, it will never happen again, I wrote it down. Sounds like you had a wonderful time, wished we could have been with you all. Love you MOM H.

Happy Birthday!!! 28 is pretty good. What in the heck is a dutch baby? Other than the obvious of course.

Joshua said...

Tara, they are oven baked pancakes, and they are the best breakfast on earth. I'll make some for you in November when we come out to visit. Just make sure you have a couple of pie pans available (but rectangular corning ware is the best, Pyrex is a pretty good substitute though)

Rachel, I think the pillow kinda gives me a headache. Still undecided. Mom, that's ok ... you weren't the only one who forgot! Tara, Joshua makes awesome dutch babies - you will love them! Lot's of butter and powdered sugar. No fruit involved! Mavric, thanks for the song! (And you did spell anniversary correctly!)
