A Day in the Life of a Birthday Girl

Thanks so much for all the birthday wishes!!  I had a wonderful day yesterday!  

What’s a day in the life of a birthday girl look like??

First thing, I woke up to some beautiful flowers and a sweet card from Luvy.

He is too good to me.  🙂

I took my flowers to the kitchen and read my daily devotional on Prayer that I do with SheReadsTruth. (Have I told you all how much I love that study??)  

Then, Luvy took time out of his office and writing to have breakfast with me.  I made us both a big bowl of oats.

Luvy had to run into work, so I jumped into workout clothes.  I shook up some Fitmixer aminos and did a great, sweaty lower body workout on YouTube.  I’ll have to share some of my favorite workouts here soon!

I got to talk to a few friends and family members yesterday morning also.  

That afternoon, I got to hang out with my friend Cherie for an hour or so before getting ready for my big date.  I forgot to take a picture, but lets just say… I was in orange and she was in blue.  Yet, we are still friends.  🙂

I came home and got dressed, because Luvy was taking me out!!

He took me to one of my absolute favorite places… Bonefish!!

That is our go to place to celebrate anything!!  🙂  I love how they wrote “Happy Birthday Brittany” on the specials!  They made sure to make my time there very special.

Luvy got the shrimp and scallops, and I got the salmon salad.

Both were amazing.  After dinner, our waiter suprised me with a fruit cup!!  Since I can’t have dairy or gluten, they didn’t have any other desserts I could eat.  I thought that was so thoughtful!

I didn’t mind not having a dessert there, because I had a very special cupcake waiting on me at home.

Remember the cupcakes that were given to me at the gluten free fair??

They were amazing!!

Luvy even sang me Happy Birthday so I could blow out my candle.  🙂

When Luvy was eating his he said, “This is gluten free?!?!”.  I have a feeling that Deliciously Free will be bought again and again here!

Thanks again for all your birthday wishes!

Now, I have to get back to work…. real life is calling.

How was your Monday?

What are you looking forward to this week?

MIMM I’m 27 Today!

Happy Monday!  You know what that means… It’s Marvelous in My Monday with my friend Katie!

Today is extra marvelous, because it is my 27th birthday!!  🙂

It doesn’t really feel like my birthday, because I’m usually an all week long celebrater.  Since Luvy is having to spend all his time and effort on getting a part of his dissertation written so he can defend his prospectus, it hasn’t really been a birthday weekend.  BUT that is okay, because I know his hard work will pay off and we will both be better off for it!

Even though he is super busy, he still makes my birthday marvelous.  I woke up to these flowers and his sweet card.

I had to put my contacts in to read the card!  There is nothing I love more than Luvy’s homemade cards.  Hallmark just doesn’t say things like Luvy does!

Please pardon me… I just woke up!

My birthday has been marvelous already, because this weekend I also got to spend time with my beautiful friend Kelly!

She and I worked on school stuff for a bit then ran around… in the rain! The rain was marvelous, because we haven’t had any in weeks!

We went shopping and we got some marvelous deals at Loft.

A skirt and tank for only $20!  Plus, I had a $15 off card because it is my birthday month!!  Totally marvelous… right??

Then, we went to Rainbow Blossom where they were having a gluten free fair.  Kelly was so awesome to join me, even though she isn’t GF!  Love her!

I tasted one of Delicously Free‘s cupcakes, and fell in LOVE!  Plus they are a local company.  Rose, who owns Deliciously Free, gave me 2 whole cupcakes since it was my birthday!!  Thanks Rose!!

I made out with all kinds of fun stuff from Rainbow Blossom!

Today, I’m off work for my birthday, which is also MARVELOUS!  So, I have some other fun stuff planned for my birthday.

I have big plans for those cupcakes tonight!!  🙂

What is marvelous about your Monday?

How do you like to celebrate your birthday?
