They say it's my birthday.....

happy birthday to me.....c'mon, you know you were singing along. Okay, I changed the words.

Yep, today I celebrate the 43rd anniversary of my birth. Or as they said at work last night, the 14th anniversary of my 29th. Either works. The cake I brought in was wiped out in 2 breaks and the hubby at least saved the last piece for me! Thanks again Donna-everyone had nothing but praise for it!

We were off today so I had lunch with a friend, mailed Hermit Crab's party invites, ordered her grad cake and went to dinner with the Dude and Hermit Crab. Drama Queen was too busy with friends to bother coming to dinner. Oh well. After our anniversary splurge last week, we went to one of my favorite places. King's in Miesville, MN. Awesome burgers; over 45 on the menu! All of them have cool names: Rook, Knight, Pawn, MVP, All-Star, Slugger. Most deal with either Chess or Baseball. Some with the usual toppings: cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato. Others have a fried egg with cheese, bacon and a hot dog on top, or the one with coleslaw and cheese, or another with cottage cheese, marinara, mozzarella and jalapenos!


For me, it is always the Pawn: bacon, BBQ sauce and Swiss cheese


excuse the toothpick-Hermit Crab is a comedian
I also tore the bun off and it ripped the cheese

Dude had a loaded burger, the Knight-and he upsized it to a half pounder:



Hermit Crab got the Pawn Chicken Sandwich sans the BBQ sauce:


After a leisurely drive home, I popped the cork on this bad boy:


Now I am headed out to the garage to paint my Mother's Day Adirondack chair I got and the rest of the cupboards for the laundry room. Hopefully tomorrow I will be ambitious enough to clean?
