How I celebrated my birthday…

Last week, on October 21st, I celebrated yet another year of growing wiser… 🙂

With 2 birthday cakes:

One from hubster (a healthy option of carrot, walnut and raisin cake with cream cheese frosting):


Gosh, I just realized how tired I look in that picture!

… and a few days later I had another (not-so-healthy-but-equally-yummy option) chocolate cake from E&O hotel.


I celebrated with love and presents all around…



(L-R): Me, Hannah, my Mom, my niece Caitlynn and my brother Allan 

I gained 2 pounds with all that eating… :(:(

If that was not enough, I even pampered myself with a long-overdued afternoon nap… 🙂

And to top it all off, my hubby surprised me with a totally unexpected birthday present…












Thank you so much, my love… 🙂

    Happy happy birthday GT!! I got your gift – thank you so much! Didn’t have time to let you know. I love your gift from your hubby too 😀 I was toying with the idea of getting it, but decided not to in the end for practical reasons. Can’t wait to see the pics you’d be taking from now on 😉
