Birthday Weekend

Today is my birthday!  Paul and I had a date night last night and went to Daniel's Broiler, a restaurant on the top (21st) floor of the Hyatt Hotel in Bellevue with stunning views of Lake Washington and Seattle.  And the food was amazing.  We both had steak because that's what they're known for.  Paul had a rib eye and I had filet mignon and it was SO good.  And we had coconut-something lobster for an appetizer and they gave us a free chocolate molten lava cake for dessert.  I should have taken pictures but I didn't.  After dinner we went into the bar where they have live piano music.  It was a wonderful evening.

Today I slept in until 8:30, then poured myself a cup of coffee and sat down to watch HGTV, my absolute favorite thing to do on a weekend morning.

Then I opened my presents.  I got a new coffee pot (I had mentioned that ours was not functioning properly but turns out it was fine, meanwhile Paul went a bought a new one) and a Fitbit.  I went for a nice walk to break it in and now I'm going to work on all my never-ending projects.  All in all a great weekend.  I can't believe I'm 47.  I am officially in my LATE-40s.  Depressing...
