Golden Birthday!

Wow! I’ve been MIA – Sorry about that, I promise to be better about blogging.

Today is my golden birthday – I’m 27th on the 27th! 🙂  Do you know what a golden birthday is? There’s been quite the discussion in my circles on if celebrating your golden birthday is actually common knowledge. My mom sent me an e-card this morning that said “Happy Golden Birthday! I had never heard of a golden birthday before Elissa told me this was yours. American Greetings doesn’t have golden birthday cards but this one has magic gold shoes and fun music! Have a wonderful day – I love you!” Magic Gold Shoes = Golden Birthday, Love my mom!

For those of you that don’t know it’s when your age is the same as the day of your birthday…. So, I’m 27 on the 27th day of September. Woohoo!


A golden birthday is as good a reason as any to celebrate. I love birthdays!

 I woke up this morning all giddy (yes, I’m six years old) and actually got a lot done. I sent out the laundry, made lunch, and even made breakfast for Adam and I  – which is a huge step from my usual “bar” breakfast.

 I decided that today, on my 27th birthday, I was going to attempt to make fried eggs and eggs over easy for the first time. They’ve always been intimidating to me, and I’ve stuck too scrambled egg whites or omelets. I was inspired by Julie’s post on on “Dippy Eggs”  and you know what, it was a lot easier than I thought. Her tips are great!

Yum! One yolk a little broken, but other than that ok


not too bad for a first try!


 I grilled a Challah Bread roll I got at the Food Emporium on a pan with a little pam to give it grilled taste.



sooo good!

I added some shredded part skim mozzarella, salt and pepper, and the eggs!



Such a great way to start out the morning, and Adam has a surprise planned for tonight – I’m so excited. The last time he had a surprised planned for me, I got engaged – who knows what he has up his sleeve today 🙂 Happy Golden Birthday to me!
