Yesterday was my 35th birthday. 
I worked in the morning and came home to find A had made this special banner. If you're a fan of "The Office" you will understand. If not well I just can't have your type stopping by to read. Nah, just kidding. 
A has been asking for weeks...or maybe it's been months about what I want to do, where I want to go, what I want for a gift. 
My choice was to stay at home and have dinner. She loves to cook. I requested grilled shrimp. She came home with these monstrous prawns.

 Soaking in a marinade of key lime juice, green chilies, garlic, onion and ginger.
 And grilled to perfection...even out in the pouring rain.
Served with my favorite grilled asparagus and baked potato.
I asked for a margarita cake this year. The cake and the glaze contain tequila, triple sec and margarita mix made with key limes. Once you go to the key limes, you can't go back.

We played in the yard with the dogs. When the rain came we took a nap and then got up and drank margaritas. Not a bad birthday at all.

Oh I forgot to say, I love the reference to the Office! Isn't that the one where they put a chicklet on Kelly's cake and tell her she gets an hour of tv or an hour nap?! That one was pretty funny :)
