Thank you all for the sweet birthday wishes! It was a great weekend. I got lots of packages in the mail, which is always exciting, and had a fantastic birthday dinner Saturday night at Buttermilk Channel in Brooklyn. Pumpkin and sweet potato soup, fried chicken and cheddar waffles, and a pecan pie sundae. I wore my new white skirt and didn't even spill anything on it. Score! Also, I think my new favorite thing is when friends and family refer to my blog before buying me gifts. For instance, last week I blogged about bells, and for my birthday, I got one! Maybe next year, I'll blog about a million dollars and a lifetime supply of chocolate-covered almonds.
