Wednesday was my birthday.
Want to know what I did?
First I'll show you what I didn't do, unfortunately; although I did have a great day. ;)
I did not don a gorgeous LBD.....
and super sparkly high heels......
for a swanky champagne bash.......
with lots of yummy hors d' oeuvre's.....
including some of these (YUM!!!)......
Just to be clear... this would've been fun, however I totally HATE being the center of attention (I was SO nervous walking down the aisle when "The Man" and I got married because everyone was looking at me!!) and I'm pretty sure I couldn't walk in heels that high! ; )
So what I really did was this: My Aunt and three cousins are visiting from San Francisco and Tuesday we decided to take a last minute road trip. We went to Fairmont hot springs resort in Anaconda, MT (about 2 1/2 hours from Great Falls.).
Swimming + mini-golf + a petting zoo + a waterslide + perfect weather + 2 adults and 5 kids, ages 10 and under = Lots and lots of fun (and not a lot of sleep!)
We had a blast and I had possibly the best meal of my life...(so far!)
CEDAR PLANKED VEGETABLES AND QUINOA Seasonal fresh vegetables, small batch olive oil, golden balsamic reduction, roasted on a cedar plank with warm Maytag bleu cheese, lavender and fennel pollen. Served with toasted quinoa and rosemary.
It was UH-MA-ZING!!!!!!!
Then back to Great Falls for some cheesecake with friends and family (minus the singing of course.....we already went over my aversion to attention.).
I turned 26.
In four years I'll be thirty.
I'm still not sure how I feel about this.
