So, Sunday was my birthday. I'm the big 30, now. Before you all start asking..yes, my birthday is on Valentine's Day. That is always the first thing that everyone says. So I'm just going to head off that comment. :)
Since our birthdays both fall on or near holidays (Andrew's is on December 30), we have agreed that birthdays are important and are not to be combined with any other holiday.
So, we went out and celebrated Valentine's Day on Saturday. We enjoyed the buffet at Pizza Ranch. Not the most romantic place, but it is where we wanted to go.
Sunday was a busy day for us. Andrew is in the sound booth at church this month, so we were there all morning. As it was Valentine's Day, we didn't want to endure lunch at some over-crowded restaurant, so we came home and he made scrambled eggs and bacon. It was just what I wanted.
Isn't this fabulous?
This is a tea brewer, and it is my birthday gift from Andrew. You put your loose leaf tea in the little hanging basket and pour hot, boiling water in the pitcher. Let it steep for 3-5 minutes, and you have some of the best tea.
It's kinda like having french press coffee compared to your regular coffee pot coffee. So much better.
Plus, isn't it cute?
We have used it every night this week. In fact, I am enjoying some Irish Breakfast Tea as I write this. I was going to take the picture while it was full of tea, but I got a little excited to enjoy my tea and forgot!
Now I need to go out and get some more loose leaf tea!
