Muffins, Ice Cream and Pancakes, too...

Yesterday was my birthday and I had such a lovely day...

My two sweet sisters woke me in the morning with freshly baked raspberry muffins (yum!) and a house decorated with colorful balloons and paper chains (compliments of Elizabeth). There were wildflowers on the table, an out-of-print book from Sarah that I have been aching for, and some lovely handmade gifts from Elizabeth...

Later we drove into town (about an hour and fifteen minutes from home) to do some shopping and go out to dinner. My Daddy works in town, but was too tired after a long day to go with us (and he's not too partial to shopping), so he headed for home as we headed for Bob Evans. *smile* We hardly ever eat at Bob Evans, but when we do for some unexplainable reason I'm always drawn to the pancakes. I'm not even a really big fan of pancakes! I like them well enough, but I certainly don't love them...but for some reason they always seem so good from there! So that is what I ate for dinner. *tee hee!*

After dinner we went shopping! We rarely make it into town and when we do we don't often go shopping, so it's always so fun to me when we are able to--especially if Barnes and Noble is one of the stores...

By the time we had enough of flip flops, sunglasses, movie, and book browsing I think we were all ready to hit Baskin-Robbins. Cake has never really been one of my favorite desserts, but the last few years I've really grown to rarely care for it. Ice cream is my dessert of choice and Baskin-Robbins Mocha Cappuccino Blast is so delicious--the perfect ending to a perfect day!


*sigh* Could anything be lovelier?


P.S. All right, I have to admit....I did give in...I bought another season of I Love Lucy. It's one of my guilty pleasures. But it was my birthday, right? *shhh!*

Happy Birthday!!! I am so glad you had such a wonderful day! I love Baskin Robbins ice cream, too -- my favorite thing to get there is a sundae, but usually I get chocolate chip cookie dough in a waffle cone. Yummy!
