Another year older

Birthdaycake_2 Had a very nice birthday yesterday. :) Went to work for 1/2 a day and then went shopping for the rest of the afternoon. I bought a nice sweater at Sears and some other shirts at Old Navy. Also bought a new house for my Christmas village. I love those little houses and started my own little Christmas village last year. I have the Department 56 "Dickens Village" collection and so far have two houses now. Very cool. :)

Then for dinner we went to our favorite local bar TK's. They give you free wings on your birthday so that's good. I had so much food. Free wings, garlic fries, then chips & chilli and when we got home I had a piece of cake.

The dinner on Saturday at the Hopkins Inn was really yummy by the way. It was definitely the most expensive schnitzel I have ever eaten but it was absolutely DELICIOUS. Our trip to Yankee Candle on Sunday was tons of fun as well. Ended up buying three new candles (Hazelnut Coffee, White Chocolate Mint and Cinnamon Cranberry Apple I think) and a neat Christmas ornament.

Well, guess that's all the news for now. I am still at work hoping to get out fairly soon. I am starving so can't wait for dinner. :)

I was going to say that I hoped you had a wonderful birthday, but upon reading your blog it is clear that you did. :-D (Don't worry about the cost of things because splurging on your birthday is to be expected.) I hope you're enjoying your new purchases and I hope you have a wonderful year to follow such a great day.

(btw-I tried to send you an e-card and apparently my e-mail address for you is a bit out of date. ^^;)

glad you had a fab birthday weekend :) So wish i could be there! White chocolate mint - are you kidding? that sounds like it might be the perfect candle....yummmmm...oh wait...you can't eat them can you?! darn!

And you got another house...lol...i remember picking one out last year with you...and how hard it was for you to choose! I remember that one in Macy's....i think you might have a few years before you get to that stage!

Happy Belated Birthday Hanna! Sorry for the late birthday wish. I am currently in North Dakota visiting my family and my mother's VERY old computer is more of a hassle so I only get on once in awhile. Anyways, no excuse for being late. I'm glad you had a wonderful birthday!! And I'm sure you are still celebrating :)
