I have the best LJ friends around! :)

First of all, I wanted to thank you all for your thoughtful birthday messages this morning, last night, and yesterday (Smitha in her different time zone out there in Singapore!), your birthday cards, and your e-cards :) They were all SO sweet and really brightened up my morning! :) Big *HUGS* to all of you!! :)

Mark is taking me to Ciao Mein tonight for dinner - it's an Italian/Chinese place in the Hyatt Regency. We really love the food there and the Hyatt holds a special place in our hearts because we were married there five years ago. :) It's a perfect restaurant for us since Mark's not too into Chinese food, but he loves Italian, and I'm okay with Italian, but I live for Chinese food! :)

Hope you all have a wonderful day! :) Thanks so much again - big *HUGS* to all of you! :)

My wonderful hubby...

...even made turning 34 special. :) Mark took me to Ciao Mein tonight and the food was great, the service was excellent, and they even brought me a complimentary birthday dessert that consisted of lychee sorbet, tiramisu, almond cookies, a scoop of expresso ice cream, a couple of slices of neopolitan ice cream, and a scoop of ginger vanilla ice cream. It was so delicious! :) I think it's become my new favorite place to dine! :) They also gave us fortune cookies at the end of our meal - and mine read: "You're going to be kissed tonight." Haha! :P

Mark also was a dear and sent a beautiful bouquet of flowers to my office and got me a Sony Cybershot! It was just the perfect gift because it was something I'd never buy on my own, but I've always kind of wanted. I can't wait to try it out on our trip next month! :)

It was such a great day! Thanks again to everyone for making it so special for me! Big *HUGS* :)
