Turning 38 (gasp!)....  
...wasn't as bad as I thought. In fact, the whole year prior to this week, I'd been mistakenly telling everyone that I was 38, so it doesn't really feel too bad to actually be 38... I know, whatever works... ;)

My birthday was really nice... I woke up to so many lovely messages here, on MySpace, Facebook, etc. emails, ecards - from lovely lovely friends (thank you all so much again!!!) Then at work, my office mates planned a yummy lunch from Big City Diner and got me a GC for the mall across the street from our office. :) I even heard from my former boss, who, after all these years of leaving our company for the competitor, still calls me and sends me an ecard on my birthday. How sweet is he? :)

Mark took me out for a celebratory dinner at P.F. Chang's this evening. We had so much fun!! We had the veggie lettuce wraps, grilled eggplant, some WONDERFUL veggie mabo tofu, and of course, the lovely, LOVELY Lucky 8 dessert. I must've gained several pounds, but I'll wait until Monday to worry about it. ;)

Speaking of which, this has been a week of eating!! Monday night we had our department's annual new year sales kick-off rally - which was held at Vino's and I had a lovely 5 course veggie meal... Wednesday was my lunch in the office from Big City Diner, and Friday we attended a going away luncheon for one of my co-workers/friends who's moving to Arizona. LOTS of food + no working out = bad week and possibly having to take out my larger sized clothes next week... :P

On that lovely note ;P, I leave you all with photos of my week of food-ventures. ;)

Mark sent an arrangement of flowers to my office on Wednesday. Isn't he sweet??

The whole gang at Willows wishing our co-worker well.

Here is the "Lucky 8" dessert! It was chocolate egg rolls with caramel sauce
& crushed toffee candy. SOOOOO delicious!!!

I'm off to pass out.... Hope you're all having a nice weekend!! Big HUGS and thanks again to everyone!!

I wish Joe would do stuff like that - send me flowers on my birthday. But he doesn't like to because they die. *sigh* But I LOVE them.

Haha!! Thankfully I've prepared for this the whole year. ;) Maybe I should start telling people I'm 39 in preparation for next year! ;) :)

You're doing so well on your diet - I'm so inspired by the amount of weight that you've lost!! When I was on a strict diet, I did use LJ (and your posts) to live vicariously, though so I do understand! :D HUGS!!

I'm happy that you had a nice week and a wonderful birthday! :) Thanks for sharing the photos. You really look great and you both look happy, too. The flowers Mark sent you look so pretty and that dessert does not only sound very delicious to me but also makes me wish that I had some chocolate at home. :) I'm sending love and hugs to you, Sheri!

Thank you so much, Sabine!! The flowers that Mark sent were really sweet and the dessert was just heavenly!! :) This week I need to consentrate on losing all that weight I put on, though. ;) Big HUGS to you!!
