So, in honor of my birthday, Doug took the day off from work. We woke up and he made me a yummy breakfast, then we hurried off to story time. Afterward we headed to the Home Depot for paint & shelving, and after lunch the day was spent painting the baby's room. I know what you're thinking, painting? Really? Yup, I've been waiting to start decorating that room all week, and what better day when my hubby is off work to do it! Its like my birthday present to me.
Sariah working hard
After the painting was finished, we had dinner out at the Olive Garden. Then after dinner, presents & bed time for little ones. Then Doug and I had birthday dessert. In the end I choose to make 2 cheesecakes, the Key Lime & the Brownie. It wasn't until I was beating the Brownie & the Key Lime was finished that I realized I didn't add the sugar into the Key Lime. It couldn't matter that much, could it? Oh yes it can! It turned out tasting like a very bad block of sour/bitter cheese. Doug managed to eat a piece by mooshing it together with the whipped topping, then we tossed the rest.
A very bad tasting Key Lime Cheesecake
A very tasty Brownie CheescakeThe Brownie Cheesecake turned out much better, although next time I think I'll try to either use less chocolate chips on the top, or make the "lines" thinner, because there are some seriously thick chocolate pieces on top!
All in all, it was a busy, productive, fun birthday. All joking aside, its not bad to be 30. There's some sort of stability about it. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next decade provides!!
