Monday I celebrated my 27th Birthday!
I'm another year older and hopefully another year wiser?
My "goal" for my birthday was to have a low-key day and eat some good food. Really, I'm not too hard to please! Give me a good cup of coffee, a comfy couch and a cute doggie to cuddle with = happy Kristen!
I opted to take a half day from work and enjoyed a leisurely morning of milling around the house, listening to some country music and taking the dog for a short walk... I kicked off the day on an extra happy (and indulgent) note by skipping my normal green smoothie in lieu of waking up to a little something sweeter:
|PB, banana and chocolate smoothie w/ an extra large dash of instant expresso :D|
Me thinks more mornings need to start this way!
After work, the hubby, pup and I packed up our picnic basket (most awesomest wedding gift ever) with dinner and headed over to the Virginia Tech Horticulture Garden. We ordered sushi to go and enjoyed a peaceful picnic to the sound of crickets and flowing water. Okay, and kids running around on a scavenger hunt, lol. It was nice to eat and not rush, to watch the sun as it began to set and then stroll around campus to enjoy the evening air. Simple and PERFECT.
|Yes it was a Hokie themed picnic. Duh! :D|
|We have too much fun :)|
Cheers to another birthday, another year of striving towards continued health and happiness, taking one day at a time and cherishing each moment.
