Happy 33rd!

This past week we celebrated Debra's 33rd birthday.  She is not too particularly happy to turn 33.  Actually, she is downright depressed!  But what can you do, right?!

Alain really spoiled her this year!  {The last 3 years of birthdays have sucked...BIG TIME! Alain admits, this too.}  So, the Saturday before her birthday Alain set up a little bit of "girl time" for Debra.  She was able to go and get a pedicure {only the second in her life!!} and go to a sushi restaurant after with a couple of her friends.  Debra <3 it!!  When she got home she was surprised with 2 bags of Sonic ice {her fave!}.  The fun didn't stop there!  Wednesday night Debra and some of her friends went to a restaurant in town that she'd been wanting to try.  It was delicious!  Debra got a fish taco and a lamb taco.  {First time she'd had lamb, and she liked it!}

On the actual day of her birthday, Debra had to teach preschool but didn't complain one bit!  She had also got to go to her favorite donut place for breakfast.  For lunch she took the kiddos to Panda Express and stuffed herself silly.  Alain and Debra had found a real Mexican food restaurant in New Mexico {no small feat} and so that's where she went for her birthday dinner.  It was supposed to be a family affair, but the boys didn't want to go, so it was just Alain and Debra.  {She didn't mind the quiet :)}  Before going to dinner they stopped by Costco to get the best chocolate cake ever.  You know, the one that weighs as much as a toddler?  It is soooo good!!

When they got home the singing, cake eating, and present opening commenced.  Debra got a slew of books that she had been wanting, a bed skirt {since in their almost 14 years of marriage they have never had one} and a detachable flash for her camera.  The cake was delicious, the company was fantastic, and the birthday celebrating was unbelievably enjoyable!  Debra would like to thank everyone for making her birthday a ton of fun, and for making her feel so special.  Here's to another 33 + years :)

 See that mother-lode of a cake? It's fab-u-lous!!
