my birthday this year

My birthday was great this year!  Tony had to work but he sure made the day special.  He was going to get me a dozen cupcakes but I was like... I don't really need that many!  So he picked up cupcakes for me, my boys and I got a free donut for breakfast, and we met Tony for lunch at Firehouse for my free birthday sub.  Our usuals!  One thing that was crummy though... they don't really give free doughnuts here!  In AZ they give a free DOZEN!  Luckily though the guy felt bad and gave me and brody one anyway.  How generous.
 Looking at that sub makes me want one right now.  Oh so good.
(i put datil pepper sauce on every bite- remember my condiment love?)
Tony introduced me to Firehouse when we were dating (he discovered it on the mission)
If they didn't have one here, I think I would be miserable. haha
It was such a nice morning while my boys and I were out and about.
Tony left me little notes all around the house.
It was so nice... since he couldn't be with me all day, I still felt 
like he was there saying those things randomly to me.
Tony really spoiled me.. I got tons of stuff on my "wish list" including a cotton candy maker!  (for parties, of course;)  Tony's like, "those balloons are cool".. so when I looked over at them he had taped a gift card to one of my favorite stores on there.  Wahoo!
I opened my gifts when Tony got home and snarfed on a cupcake or two.
I of course had to try out my new cotton candy maker!
Btw, Brody did that football stance all by himself! 
We were at a store earlier that morning.
I think we have a future football player on our hands.
(ignore the beer in the background)
 We went to Red Robin because I'm all for free meals.  But they do it differently this year so I thought I was too late to get my free burger.  It didn't really matter, I was still really in the mood for it, it's been a while.  I got a free sundae, at least! (Man, I really milk birthdays;)
 That night we rented a movie I've wanted to see (I remember hearing about that girl when it happened).. and then when I went to wash my face for the night I found this note by my sink (and Brody's spider haha).  It was so sweet.  Tony sure made my day wonderful!
My parents showed up half way through the movie (they were driving back home after the weddings).  They were hoping to make it for the entire day but that just meant we spread the celebrations out one more day!

What a fun day!! Firehouse will always be my favorite subs yummm. My dad does this every year on his birthday too. He goes to every place that gives you free stuff regardless if he has eaten already or not haha

So, Krispy Kremes here don't give a free dozen anymore either. I went in to get some for Mike (I'm not a donut fan) and there were signs all over that said, "Choose Any One Donut FREE For Your Birthday." Lame.

Thanks for blogging the rest of your day. Would've liked to be there, but made it just in time to watch the rest of soulsurfer. That was a great movie I had always wanted to see. I am glad I got to see it sitting next to you, Tony to my left, and Dad to my right! Love, Mother

I'm pretty sure I already said Happy Birthday, but I'll go ahead and be totally repetitive and say it again.. Happy Birthday!

Those have to be the cutest cupcakes I've seen lately. Swoon!

xo, Ashley
