Birthday & Shrimp Scampi

Yesterday I celebrated my 38th birthday. What a great day it was. Everyone spoiled me rotten with birthday wishes and it made my day feel super special. This year my kids really went out of their way to make sure I was feeling special. My daughter was constantly nudging me saying “it’s your birrrthhhhdayyyyyyy!!!” with a big grin. At the end of the night my son made sure to find the sweetest treat in the house (which so happened to be left over cupcakes from prom) and he stuck a candle in one and made sure I was able to make a birthday wish. It’s so neat as a parent to see what your children do for you on their own free will, it shows us what they’ve always felt was important to them. To Jordan it was the joy of the birthday candle/wish. For Lexi, it was the giddiness & happiness through the day as well as the birthday song in the loudest key possible (thank you Auntie Trudi for that one). I never thought 38 would feel so amazing! Thank you so much to all of you for making my birthday awesome! And thank you Mother Nature for giving me a gorgeous high 80’s California day!

Normally we’ll do a big family dinner to celebrate but this year I wanted to rush home and make some Shrimp Scampi….. and that’s what I did. It turned out so delicious and I got to enjoy it with my babe & the kids (and of course, I snapped a photo of it). Presentation is key. =)
