Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes yesterday! Dean was so flattered and loved all of the comments. None of you guessed his age right but Electra was the closest… Unfortunately Dean had to work on his birthday (insert sad face) so I had to celebrate his day of birth on my own until approximately 4pm. Said celebration involved 5 miles on the treadmill while watching (part of) The Bachelorette (episode 3 – things are getting EXCITING) on my Mac.
I kind of love watching TV while running. It makes the time go by super fast and I feel like I can run forever. Someone needs to invent some kind of a hands-free/wireless/floating contraption that lets you watch TV while running outdoors. I swear running marathons would be way easier. PS: I wore my mom’s Mizunos to see what they felt like and they were SO comfortable. I’m getting a pair of Mizunos next, no doubt.
When Dean got home I told him I would take him out to eat. His response? ”I’m not too hungry. I just ate a burrito.” He just ate a FREAKING burrito on his birthday RIGHT before we were supposed to go out to “celebrate”. So he accompanied me to Whole Foods and I ate food from their hot bar all alone. What he did want was ice cream so that is exactly what he/we got.
Ever since Sandy posted her mint chocolate chip cone on Instagram (follow me! the_athletarian) we have both been craving it so we got matching cones. Doesn’t the above picture look kind of like the one I posted yesterday except this time Dean is holding real cones! I probably should have gotten him to take his shirt off to make it a little more similar.
Dean doesn’t really like celebrating his birthday – he says only people who plan on aging need to celebrate their birthdays! Apparently aging isn’t in his life plan for the next little while so we’ll see how that pans out… We spent the rest of the night walking and talking, which is exactly what he wanted.
Are you big on birthday celebrations?
What’s your favourite ice cream flavour? Cup or cone?
