Is when my dear mother gave birth to me exactly 27 years ago!

IMG_0001

Thanks mom! :heart:

I have had a great start to my birthday. :wub: Thank you for all your birthday wishes!

My eyes flew open at 6:50 this morning and I could not fall back to sleep! I am just a seven year old at heart. Eric told me I wasn’t allowed in the kitchen this morning, so I tried to busy myself while I heard him tinkering away in the kitchen.

I heard the food processor and my heart went a flutter.

Finally, I was called into the kitchen around 8am! I was sooooo hungry I could have chewed his arm off! My throat was also parched. lol.

My morning started off the way any birthday morning should…

IMG_7057

A dark chocolate was waiting for me on the table. A very good start!

IMG_7058

Then Eric gave me my first gift…(all photos are credit to him today too!)

IMG_7047

Oh yes.

IMG_7042

I opened the box to find Crazy Dish Lady stuff!!!!

IMG_7038 

He said, ‘I can’t believe I am fueling your habit.’ :lol:

I agreed!

Then he presented me with a wheatgrass shot cuz he knows I’m twisted like that!

IMG_7052 

and Green tea…

IMG_7055 

and a birthday VOO parfait!

IMG_7079 

[I thought I saw him creeping on my website last night!!]

It has a secret layer of blueberry jam in it. I can’t think of a better birthday breakfast.

IMG_7080 

I love this breakfast because it never leaves me feeling too full…just right with lots of energy.

And much like the veggie burgers, it tasted even better when he made it! He sprinkled it with cinnamon which I loved.

IMG_7085 

He had coconut pancakes…

IMG_7095 

Then he gave me gift #2…

IMG_7102 (2)

A bike pouch!

I was clearly excited.

IMG_0943 (2)

I told him I have been needing a ‘purse’ for my bike for ages now. I’m sure I will fill it with all kinds of junk. I should do a post one day on the contents of my regular purse…what a sight!

IMG_7107

He said my big gift is coming later…and he said it is a ‘virtual gift’ that brings him ‘way out of his comfort zone’. Hrmmmmm.

I’m not sure what we are up to now, but he says I need to hurry up and put spandex shorts on.

26 Evelyn @ cheers2healthy May 16, 2010

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! It’s so great that your boyfriend thinks of YOU when giving you all these wonderful gifts & birthday services! Sometimes people give others what they would want, but he certainly seems to know you very well : P Even the fact that he gave you your “usual” soft serve VOO breakfast with some candles in it! How endearing : )

So, I had a question, or request, rather. Can you write a post sometime describing what “hunger cues” typically are? I think it’s hard for people who are used to not paying attention to them. I know it’s been a struggle for me, but I think I’m starting to catch on. Thanks!!

34 Michelle May 16, 2010

yay for VOO!! After discovering how great blueberry jam tastes in VOO, i have had my secret layers in them EVERY morning now. hahaha :) Thank you jam makers!!!

It’s so cute that Eric has the same reaction my boyfriend of 3 years has whenever he gets me something to “fuel my habit”. He says that i have a spoonsession (spoon obsession) because i constantly look for new spoons to eat with.

Happy birthday Ange!! Yay Ange’s mom!! :)
