It's my party


Well, Mr Renn did his darnedest to make up for this morning. And for Valentines Day. And for our Anniversary.... (hee hee)
After he got home from school he made me this yummy dinner of Steak with Bernaise sauce, Boulangere potatoes, and bacon-wrapped asparagus (because everything is better with bacon... especially if you're Renn). All very yummy. I ate too much. And Mr Renn got all giddy about serving me a 1st course salad in a chilled bowl with a chilled fork. It was good to see him enjoying himself while he was doing something sweet for me.
Then Mr Renn gave me some sweet presents. I finally got a new (metal) cookie dough scoop, since my plastic one didn't survive Christmas baking. And he spoiled me rotten and got me a Criterion Collection DVD of one of Krzysztof Kieslowski's films. My friend Jeff can tell you about how the Criterion Collection is manna from heaven for those of us who who let it be. But they're also expensive, so it was a sweet gift.
Then I found myself (my already stuffed-self, I might add) being whisked away to Zwahlen's for a birthday treat, and SURPRISE... a nice evening out with most of our neighbors. Then I ate even more too much, with a caramel-apple on top. Wow, I feel loved. And bloated.
And Sir O, as you can see by that messy face, was just as happy about my birthday (at least the food) as I was. Cute kid.

Happy day!! Way to go, Renn! I'm so glad things ended up nicely, and Renn is right- everything is better with bacon. It's the one food I never got over, even after almost 20 years as a veg.

(by the way, I have the same blouse you have on in the pictures! Excellent taste, my lady!)
