It's My Birthday!

...and I'll eat ice cream if I want to!!!

I'm 24 today! I'm still young enough that I still really enjoy my birthdays. (That might change next year...Haha) It's a beautiful day today, partly sunny and about 70 degrees! I took a vacation day from work and Tom gets off work around noon. Then we are going out to lunch (dessert included-of course!) and then we're off to the zoo/conservatory for the rest of the afternoon.

The boy did pretty good with the presents. He knew I've wanted this print for awhile now. Except all the World Markets in MN went out of business last winter. So I was pretty bummed that I wouldn't have that beauty above my couch. Well, turns out he snagged it months ago! :) I also got a glass hummingbird feeder for my deck.

On Saturday we went to a local winery to "pre-celebrate" my birthday since they aren't open on Mondays. It was a small winery, but we still had fun. We would both LOVE to go out to California and check out what they have to offer though! Someday...

Here are some of the grape vines. The U of MN made this variety because they can withstand the harsh winters here.

Here is a shot of inside the store. One of the beauties on the far right came home with us. It's a raspberry wine and we are saving it for our first night in our first home! (Whenever that happens!)

After that we went to the local animal shelter. Tom doesn't like taking me there because I want to take at least 2 or 3 animals home every time. But since it was my birthday weekend, he agreed. :) And there just happened to be a giant inflatable cat out front! :)

Now it's time for the rest of my lazy morning before I'm off for some more birthday fun!

Oh, yes! Napa Valley = HEAVEN! I went there last summer, and I LOVED it.
