Cinco de Mayo Birthday Celebration

Today is my birthday. My birthday AND my husband's birthday! But, he will ALWAYS be two years older than me! ;)

We went out for dinner and enjoyed a hibatchi meal- the kind cooked right in front of you. I ate about two scallops, two spoonfuls of rice, one piece of zucchini, 2 small shrimp and called it quits! I couldn't help but reminisce about that last time that my husband and I had eaten at this Japanese restaurant... I watched as the chef served everyone at the table making sure that I didn't get any less than everyone else there... it had to be fair. However, tonight I watched as he served me hoping that he wouldn't give me anymore! Big difference.

It's nice to go to bed on my birthday knowing that I didn't pack away a 5,000 calorie meal just because I could.

That really struck a chord for me! My husband is a HUGE eater (but a great metabolism) and I remember pre-band I'd get frustrated when we'd 'split' and appetizer or a dessert because he'd always end up getting most of it. I'd have to yell at him to slow down so I could get my share. But now, I could care less! Its wonderful!
