A Candlelit Birthday Dinner

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on November 9, 2008

Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a fun and relaxing weekend :D

My day was great! My workout at the gym was good today:

  • 45 mins treadmill @ incline 15, speed 4.0 mph
  • 24 flights of stairs
  • crunches on stability ball (25)
  • 20 lunges with 30 pounds of dumbbells

Eric and I went grocery shopping in the afternoon (one of my favourite things to do- sad, but true!) and then I came home and decorated the birthday cake and got ready to leave.

The Birthday dinner with family was wonderful! The food was delicious and my cake was a big hit.

The romantic and cozy candlelit spread….


Salad, chicken vegetable pasta, and the softest bread I have ever tasted!


My plate (balsamic mustard salad, chicken pasta, bread):


I also had a yummy slice of birthday cake! My BIL with the cake:

Beautiful fall flowers…


Such a fun night- I love my new family :D

Tomorrow my mom flys in from Calgary, we are picking her up from the airport at noon and spending the day with her. I will try my best to squeeze in a post when I can!


I leave you tonight with a video of inspirational quotes…this is really neat! I love this song too.

Peace out lovies!

I’m glad you had a good time! I don’t know how you stuck to just one little piece of that bread hah. Is that Yellowtail wine I see on the able? Yum!
