I am on


Passion Parade Friday Link Soiree

Recieved some gifts, surprises were ruined but it was a special birthday afterall.
What made it special? Aside from greetings from facebook and blog friends (thank you so much BTW), my husband took the day off and stayed home for the day just for my birthday. His magic words were "We will do whatever you want. It is your birthday", I wanted to go garage sale shopping but unfortunately our car broke down!!! Later we found out the pack rats chews the wires!

 Hubby also surpised me with an ice cream cake
He especially asked for the closest to French design cake. He knew me very well.

Rocky Road Ice Cream Cake. My favorite!

My super sweet brother in law's gift came few days ago. It was supposed to be a surprise and I had to open it on my birthday. However, the packaging ruined the it! He was mad at how it was packed. And guess what? There wasn't even a tape!

So I peeked, it was a book, but I didn't know what book until...

Tolkien's The book of Lost Tales 1 and 2! Woo hoo! I just love Fantasy fiction. I am even in the process of writing one. ***nerd alert.

A birthday becomes more special when celebrated with friends. We invited our dear friend and her husband for a lunch out. She is very sweet to gift me with lovely bag and beautiful scarf!

We ended the day with my free birthday drink from starbucks. Venti Java Chip Frapp. Read, our books until we shiver in cold. It was worth it. Ahh 500 Calories of pleasure.

Okay, enough of my jibberjabber, let's start today's Passion Parade. I am anxious to see what kept you busy lately.
