In case you weren’t aware, I love to celebrate. Anything. Everything. All the time. I get that from my dad. I remember growing up, we would celebrate my 1/2 birthday, 1/3 birthday, 9/10 birthday, you name it. It even goes down to 7/8 of a decade and crazy things like that. Thursday was my dad’s 1/2 birthday, but I was in rehearsal so his celebration had to wait until last night. I called my dad to see what the plan was and he asked if I was on the no carb diet (aka the dark ages when I avoided carbs like the plague–don’t do it, trust me) and I laughed and said “I’m on an ALL carb diet!” No carb stands a chance against me. Especially the night before my long run. He got so excited for pizza, so I suggested getting Papa Murphy’s and bringing it back to my place. I love their deLITE crust, it makes me feel not so guilty about pizza eating 🙂
I got the Mediterranean chicken and a veggie and cooked em up along with some roasted green beans and onion.
I also did some baking, but I can’t share too much yet, because I loved what I made so much that I decided to nix my original idea for the blogger cookie swap, and make a little variation of these instead. But I have to offer a sneak peak 😉
My dad, Steve, Hermano and I enjoyed our dinner, watched Who Framed Roger Rabbit and then Hermano won at Life. I came in second. I hate not winning. In fact, I’m still slightly bitter. Watch out, Hermano.
It was really nice to celebrate, but stay in and relax and play games. Maybe I’m old, but 9 out of 10 times, that’s what I’d rather do 🙂 Happy half birthday dad!!!
