Okay back to my short birthday recap. As excited as I've been for my birthday, I was also kinda not looking forward too it. My husbands job has him working Monday-Saturday from 5-5:30. With us being in Kuwait, he also doesn't get off for American Holidays (only Kuwaiti ones)... which means come Thanksgiving and Christmas, I'll be alone since the holidays just happen to be during the week. I've had my debbie downer days when I would just cry thinking about it.. until I finally realized, "Hey it could be so much worse. I could be stuck in the States without him". Well yesterday morning I woke up around 5:30 and walked out to the kitchen and noticed the hubs was fast asleep on the couch. I totally freaked out thinking he must've walked out to the living room to watch sports and had fallen back asleep. I immediently woke him up, and he proceded to act like he was late for work.. 'calling his boss', getting a shower & frantically rushing around the house to get ready. We said our goodbyes and I laid back in bed. Well, wouldn't you know it.. within a few minutes the hubs was back, and with some presents. Here he had taken a vacation day so that he'd be able to spend the day with me. It was the sweetest thing, and I couldn't help but smile!
The hubby did such a great job with presents this year... not like he needed to with a surprise like that :) :). After we laid around for a little, I cooked him some eggs & toast, and fruit for me. After breakfast, I headed down to the gym to get in a quick 8 mile run. I knew we'd be going out to dinner later, so thought it'd be a good idea to just eat lunch @ home upon returning from the gym. I cooked up some chicken, and had a nice chicken salad while the husband had a wrap. We both got ready, and decided to go bowling. We aren't the best of bowlers whatsoever, but we still had a great time.
I am a very easy person to please. I'm not someone who asks for much, or who wants to go all out for birthdays. I'd rather it just be a day full of relaxation. Once we got home, we watched a few movies and I munched on a rice cake topped with strawberry jam, pb & frozen bananas. Around 5:30 we decided to head out to dinner. We haven't tried too many of the places here in Kuwait yet, so sushi it was. For once, I decided to try new things! How could you pick a salad over sushi anyways? We got edamame for an appetizer (which was my first, and I must say I loveddddd it), and then split the California Roll & Philadelphia Roll for our entree. Everything was very good. After dinner, it was time for dessert (even though we were both stuffed). I ended up getting frozen yogurt (Strawberry mixed with Original and topped with dark chocolate chips, and granola... oh and then hubby and I shared a carrot cake cupcake). Once we got home, we laid in bed and played hearts, and I may or may not of eaten an english muffin with honey.

So theres my birthday recap. It may not of been the busiest day, but it was my kind of birthday and couldn't of been more wonderful, especially having my husband with me <3
Okay, now I gotta get my butt moving & head to the gym. I'll be back later!
