Birthday Girl

Okay, I just celebrated another birthday and I can't believe how forgetful I'm becoming. My memory isn't anything like it used to be. It's crazy, but I'm at a point now where I have to sit things by the front door that I don't want to forget to take with me when I leave the house. Or when my husband asks me to pick something up from the grocery store, I have to write it down right then and there or it'll slip my mind. I suppose now would probably be a good time to invest in some ginkgo biloba. I guess I'd better add it to my grocery list now before I

Anyway, on the bright side, the day was great. I have to give it to my daughter's, they turned my birthday into an all day celebration... which was a first for me. They truly made my day and made me feel super special. Well, the morning started with a hearty breakfast. They both cooked pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon and it was good.

Then my oldest, who is a fashion diva, brought me a complete outfit, jewelry sandals and all. Since using eyeliner and chapstick is the full extent of my daily make-up routine, she gave me a makeover.

My youngest treated me to a manicure and pedicure since she says my toes scare her.

Okay, I have big, flat feet and taking pictures of them probably isn't the best idea, but this is the finished product.

We had fun spending most of the day shopping. Then we had dinner at Crimson, which is a fabulous local restaurant in York. Turns out, they have the best food there. If you're ever in the area, you've got to try it out... yum.

This is the inside of the restaurant.

These probably aren't the greatest pictures, but I was trying to avoid taking pictures of people while they were eating. So I aimed my camera at the ceiling and walls, instead.

The girl's ordered these super cheesy fries. I had a couple, but I wanted to save room for my pasta.

This is the pasta dish I ordered. I can't remember what it was called, but it sure was delicious.

Then we had chocolate cake...

... and watched Life of Pi. I have to say though, I thought it would be better. It was a long, boring, dry movie and I'm glad we only spent a little over a dollar for it at the Redbox.

I had such a great day, I just wanted to share it with everyone. Too bad my next birthday is a whole year away. Oh well, I'll sign off with a joke that I thought was really funny.

Three sisters, aged 92, 94, and 96, live in a house together.

One night, the 96-year-old draws a bath. She puts her foot in and pauses. She yells down the stairs: "Was I getting in or out of the bath?"

The 94-year-old yells back: "I don't know. I'll come up and see." She starts up the stairs and pauses. Then she yells: "Was I going up the stairs or down?"

The 92-year-old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea, listening to her sisters. She shakes her head and says: "I sure hope I never get that forgetful." She knocks on wood for good measure.

She then yells: "I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who's at the door."
