Wow, what a lovely day! Was it a milestone birthday, or does she get this star treatment every year?

Not really a milestone - except that we're starting to come out of the tunnel of infants? Our youngest is now almost 14 months old, and it's starting to feel like our union is something more than just a compact to raise children for the first time in almost 6 years? That's an exaggeration of course, and we've been blessed and lucky - I'm not complaining. Sometimes it does feel like one-day-at-a-time, let's consider success another day of keeping everyone's fingers out of the light sockets...

She was great on my birthday last month. It made me feel great and appreciated. I wanted her to feel the same way yesterday. I think I succeeded!

It's kind of a cool numerical year on the ages thing. 44/33 - which will happen every time we have double digit birthdays like that for the rest of our lives with the 11 year split. But that's not really a 'milestone.'

Not here Bider, sorry. The Mermaid doesn't want her looks/body/whatever commented on by anonymous assholes inexplicably allowed to run rampant in a community of friends. I'll copy her picture to my FB profile for ya.

Squid I TOTALLY get that. But what about the bike? The Rottweiler? A turkey?

So, you can't post a picture of a bicycle and some balloons? You'd have to be insane to post a picture of yourself anywhere on the internet if you don't want it criticized, including FB.

You have to really love somebody to be plating waffles at 6am, though. Lucky lady.

Great job, Squid (although I'd have to fault you on placing the fruit and bacon on the same plate wink.gif )

I don't really understand the fruit/bacon complaints?

So the plate was pretty much completely taken up by the waffle. The mermaid put the fruit directly on the waffle with whipped cream and syrup, and ate bacon pretty much off its own, separate serving plate. I did too.

I don't put fruit or cream on my waffles. Just syrup. I ate some waffle away, then put fruit on my plate when there was space. I also ate the bacon right off the serving plate. Serving plate--->my hand---> my mouth.

But this sounds like an English thing? No fruit and bacon on the same plate?

If I'd made eggs - I'd have put eggs, toast, potatoes, bacon and fruit all on one plate and served it. Is that a no-no in Englishland?

As far as I'm concerned you could have piled them on top of each other and I would have eaten it right up! Sounds delish!

Bacon and syrup is delicious. Bake it w/ brown sugar on it and it will change your life. These people are crazy.

The question marks have you sounding like a 15 year old girl, in my head.

Yes, this is apparently a real problem I have.

It's a misguided attempt to sound congenial and interested, given my reputation is so combative.
