Happy Birthday Chris!

Today was Chris's 35th birthday. I wasn't conscious yet when he left for work so I called him a little later to say Happy Birthday. I had left birthday cards from the kids and me on the bathroom counter for him, along with some body sprays that he likes.

Kelly and I did lunch at Dairy Queen. I am fixated on their chicken Caesar salads. And we were both good and curbed the urge to have a hot fudge sundae after. After work I picked up the boys and came home to get their stuff together to bring them to Mom and Dad's house so I could take Chris on a date for his birthday. I grabbed miscellaneous clothing and snacks and toys and pajamas and movies and herded them out the door again. I dropped them off and got them settled in and ran back to town. I stopped at the store to get Chris a new sweater. It was 25% off plus I had a gift certificate so it was a great deal, and he liked it. I also stopped really quickly to see if I could find myself a new top to wear. I found two, with necklaces to match.

I zipped home and fixed my hair and face and got dressed. Chris wanted to take his truck since we'd never gone anywhere in it together yet, and being all gentlemanly, he even opened my door. We went to the new Greek-East Indian restaurant. We both had the Indian buffet, which was delicious and very filling. When I mentioned it was Chris's birthday, they brought him a piece of cake with a candle on it and two waitresses sang Happy Birthday to him. He managed to squeeze in the cake without any help from me and we left.

I tried to find some unsuspicious ways to kill time before taking him to the bowling alley. I had invited a few people to meet up with us there to surprise him for his birthday. I somehow got him there without any suspicion whatsoever, which was great! There were twelve of us in total, which was ideal since I had booked two lanes. We bowled a couple games and had a great time. After bowling, Cindy, Bob, Deidre and Greg came over. We played Singstar a little before everyone had to go home to either bed or to relieve a babysitter. I made Chris sing a couple more songs with me but he has to work in the morning. I stayed up awhile longer but I'm finally going to bed. It was a great day, a great surprise and a great group to hang out with and have some fun!

So is that a long drive to the Greek East Indian restaurant in Chris' truck?
