Birthday Thoughts

Guess what? I turned 26 yesterday lol.

My thoughts about turning 26?

I don't feel any older. I never FEEL any older on a birthday, but this was the first year that I actually felt that my age denoted getting older. I mean, 26, that's on the way to 30. Unmistakeably an adult, no longer "early 20s."

What did I do?

The special highlight of my birthday was a trip to The Melting Pot, a fondue restaurant. I know, how fancy? lol I'll admit, in the beginning the hubby and I were a little skeptical. The prices were a little high, we'd never eaten fondue out, and... we were going to have to make our food OURSELVES. Our initial fears were unwarranted and we had a GREAT time. The food was delicious, and the cooking mechanism was really simple... throw your meat on a fondue scure, let it sit in the broth for 2 minutes, and wala... wonderfully cooked, shrimp, sausage and steak, with delicious dipping sauces. And of course the desert course was even better. Flambeed chocolate with marshmallow and oreo cookies on top. For dipping? Strawberries, cheesecake, rice krispy treats, pound cake, red velvet cake, marshmallows AND bananas! I wanted to do something that was more of an experience this year, not just your average trip to dinner, and I was very satisfied. Thanks to my wonderful hubby for the treat!

For all of my past birthday blog posts check out my birthday tag.


  1. I'm 27 and I feel that slid toward 30 like someone is pushing me from behind. It's disconcerting.

    I love the Melting Pot! I haven't been in a minute. The whole concept is cool and I just enjoy the atmosphere. I have got to get back there soon.

  2. @CC - Yea, suddenly 30 seems a little bit closer. I was SO happy with the Melting Pot! It's definitely a nice atmosphere.

  3. :drool:
    And don't worry, we age very well. Haha.
