Half Way to 75!


Today is my Half Birthday! I am 37 1/2 years old.

Marcus and I have always celebrated each other's half birthdays since we were dating.
Some people hate birthdays and hate getting older.
Do you know what the alternative to getting older is?
DEATH!


There are lots of people that would give anything to have another birthday! We should appreciate it!
And plus, I just like to have reason to get gifts and go out to eat. It's FUN!

I got these sweet sunflowers and a pedicure.
AND a date!


Marcus asked my parents to babysit and we went out!

I think these 2 are pretty cute!


I am hesitant to post my double chin here, but Katie needs some documentation of her mother!


We ate at Twisted Root in Roanoke.


It's a hamburger place and they make their own root beer!

You can even get a bison or buffalo burger there.
I just got regular cow.


Lionel Richie had an ad up in the place:

They had a foot long hot dog on the menu named the Dirk Diggler. That's a little too racy for this blog, but I thought it was funnyish.


And when you place your order, they give you a name they call when your food is ready.
This was ours:

We heard orders for Lisa Simpson, Mary Kate Olsen, Hugh Jackman and others.
It was really good and we had fun!

On the way back to my parents we got a dipped cone from Mc D's. I like to at least get one a summer. I like the chocolate part and the cone. I let Marcus eat the vanilla ice cream off the top!


Katie had a grand time at her Nonni and Grampy's house. Her favorite thing to do there is play Just Dance on the wii. I need to share some videos soon. She's pretty awesome!

Now just 6 more months til 38!
Maybe I can get rid of my double chin by then?
I am pretty sure I said the same thing last year!
