my birthday weekend

i had a wonderful weekend celebrating my birthday!  on friday after work, ryan and i ordered take out (chicken parmesan and garlic knots) which we enjoyed at home.  ryan made me a devil's food cake birthday cake that looked like a present, and it was delicious.  i opened presents and we rented a movie.  it was a perfect low-key birthday evening at home with the one i love!


on saturday, ryan made me my favorite breakfast: a german apple puffed pancake.  our parents came up to our house, and they got to meet our new baby kitten!  i had such a good time visiting with everyone.  ryan and i made dill salmon for dinner, and my mom made me an awesome birthday cake: chocolate cake filled with raspberries and topped with whipped cream!


on sunday, ryan and i continued the birthday celebrations with my mom by going out for dinner and ice cream.  after, we came home and collapsed on the couch in our pajamas to watch a movie with our furry baby.


i had an absolutely perfect weekend spent with my favorite people!
i can't think of anything better!
love, laurie

I love the bow on the package. He looks cute, sassy, spoiled, in-charge, and intelligent. Any other words to describe him?
