Here are my birthday flowers in a vase a made at MICA three years ago. And for the record, these flowers lasted over 3 1/2 weeks! I had to throw them out when we moved, but they were still flourishing at the time.
Karl made a deliciously fluffy cheese omelet.
I even pulled out these too cute paper napkins from Norway for the special brunch.
The brunch Karl made for me: omelet, cinnamon buns, bananas and grapefruit. Yum! On the table you can also see my gift (well, it's wrapped): an awesome heavy duty garlic press! (See how I used it in the post to follow)
Us full of the yummy brunch! (Notice the nice earrings my mom got me for my birthday)
For dinner we went out to a Mediterranean restaurant called Arugula. Everything we had was delicious, delicious, delicious! For my entree I had pumpkin and ricotta stuffed ravioli with toasted filberts on a bed of....arugula!
Karl had the 1/2 roasted chicken with wild rice and ratatouille. That also was incredibly good.
For dessert we had the stuffed filo with banana and chocolate filling.
So that was my birthday- the short and sweet version. Probably two of my favorite birthday gifts was the "karlmark" card (from Karl of course) and the box of goodies from my mom. What are some favorite gifts that you have received?
