I'm on the hill

So, it's my birthday today. I wouldn't say I'm over the hill yet--maybe just on it. I'm 41 today. I'm having a great day. The celebrating began last night with an awesome dinner out with some long-time friends. It was a nice treat to have some grown up time and adult conversation without interruption from little people. We ate at Zelko Bistro in the Heights in Houston. If you're local you must try it! I had the shrimp and grits and Kelvin had the pork chop. One of our friends had the salmon and another had steak. The food was melt-in-your-mouth delicious! The desserts did not disappoint! I had the tres leches and my friend had the chocolate mousse...OH.MY.GOODNESS! I don't even know what to say. We will definitely be back! 
This morning, Kelvin and the kids took me to a local joint, El Toro, for brunch. I only found out a few weeks ago they serve brunch. SO glad we finally had time to try it. YUMMERS! After we finished eating, they gave me this awesome cuff! 

 
 
 
Heather, at Bits of Grace Designs, made it. She's a local gal someone suggested I Like on Facebook, and I'm so glad I found her! I'm tickled pink with my cuff, and it's just the reminder I need. I also got some new work-out shoes and very hip socks to go with them. No excuses now not to get my hiney running again. Yesterday, I treated myself to a pedicure. Tonight we're going to watch Luke's choir perform. His choir teacher is a member of a Houston area chorus, and her choir was invited to sing in their Christmas concert tonight. I'm so excited! Tomorrow the festivities continue with lunch after church with my parents. I'm one lucky gal! Actually, I'm blessed beyond measure!
 
Not sure why this is so fuzzy. Only thing that would've made it any better would be my main man in it too. He's taking the photo. Love these munchkins so much!

After brunch, we headed to Hobby Lobby so the kids could pick out their annual ornament. Carleigh chose the funniest hippo...reminds us of Gloria on Madagascar. Cora chose a cute little puppy with a pink feather boa, and Luke chose a Wii remote. It's so cool how they all chose something that reflects their little personalities so well right now.
