Ceeelebrate Good Times, Come On!

In my house this month we have things to observe.

The first and most recent is that one year ago today, we left for Maui. Sometimes it seems like we just got back, sometimes it seems like the trip was 20 years ago. We ate plate lunches and visited a goat dairy, we went to a luau, we celebrated my parents 40th wedding anniversary, we saw whales and swam with turtles. We ate cheese in a can, too many potato chips, and I found my favorite restaurant in the entire world. We got tattoos (real and fake), Scott spent entire days in the ocean and we had the most fun ever. I hope we get to go back one day.

Our next observation - this month is the 10th anniversary of my and Scott's first date. I know! I can't believe it either. 10 YEARS. Our first date was a movie date - Titanic. Our second date was a movie and then off to play pool. Our third date was dinner out. And I wondered if perhaps I liked the wrong guy. I can't remember what he ordered, but I remember what I had - only because he hated everything on my plate. And I loved it all! What is up with that?

 We've had a nice birthday weekend. There were presents, tasty food, more presents, more food, more presents, grocery shopping for more food, more presents, and a trip to Costco. No wonder I'm tired tonight. I made my world famous Carrot Cake for the birthday cake this year. It was as fabulous as always. Instead of making one big cake, this year I made two little ones and six cupcakes.

In the words of my beloved Ina, how gorgeous do those look?

I thought she was MY beloved Ina! Must we fight over all our friends? (wink-wink)

Happy birthday to Scott, happy anniversary and go back to Maui for me soon, because I'll never make there - too much flying. (shiver!)
