a birthday celebration

I recently celebrated my birthday and it was one of the best birthdays that I remember having in a long time. It could have something to do with the fact that it was sunny and warm and we got to spend some time outside. Or the fact I spent the day with my girls, getting new spring/summer clothes. Or that we went and got my car washed since it had been blasted by a wind storm and I could barely see out my window and incidentally sat in line behind 30 other people with the same idea. Or the fact that I actually got to go on a real date with Joe, which pretty much never happens.
Could be because I got to see this movie which was amazing. It followed the book so closely and it was just utterly fantastic. I loved every minute of it. It could do something with me getting to try a new hamburger joint I've had my eyes on. I LOVE hamburger places and am always looking for a great new one. This is Lumpys and if you've never heard of them before, don't worry I hadn't until just recently. When you walk in the door you grab one of these brown paper sacks and fill out your order on one. Then you go and pick out your potato (you can choose from Idaho or sweet). You get to pick if you want them cut skinny (fries) or screwy (potato chips). The hamburgers are enormous. Joe and I loved eating here. It is quite greasy, I will warn but the screwy cut of the potatoes was so yummy and I thought the hamburger was quite good. You know, thinking about it, it's probably a combination of all these great things that made my birthday so special.

I am glad you had a great birthday! I want to see pictures of the new clothes ;). Also I haven't seen Hunger Games yet, but I can't wait to see it!
