Yesterday morning, Max woke up to the smell of coffee... although our coffee maker has a timer, we almost never use it... and never on a weekday. Thursday night while Max was getting ready for bed, I set up the coffee to start brewing at 6:30am. In his car, I loosely tied a little bag of Jelly Belly jelly beans (that I bought in California in August but he didn't remember) to his steering wheel with a ribbon. After work, Max picked me up and we had dinner at Legal Seafoods. Everything was so yummy! While we were waiting for dessert he opened part of his birthday gift - an assortment of minty chocolates from Whole Foods. I also bought him some flowers on Thursday. The big part of his birthday present we're getting on Sunday - the new Nintendo Wii and Zelda: Twilight Princess.
After dinner, we went to the movies to see Happy Feet. Such a good movie!
In other news, Max's friends from BU, Natalia and Alex, finally got engaged! The two of them left DC on Monday for a roadtrip to LA. He proposed to her on Wednesday in Chicago. And she said yes. But then she waited until last night to tell us! We were very excited to hear the news first hand. Here's the happy couple!
