Best. Day Before My Birthday. Ever. pt. 2

So, Tom and I had desert after my birthday dinner tonight.

We went to Scrumdiliumptious IceCream.

Tom was looking around on the internet for ice cream shops and just stumbled across it. It's in Sherwood. He thought, man! It's called Scrumdiliumptious, that's cool! and thought that I might like it.

He was beyond right!!

We walked in, and right away, you could tell it was an ice cream parlor, but then, the lady had us take a look at the menu, and said she'd held us as soon as we were ready, and pointed out that their were photos of the menu items on the wall.

So i looked at the menu, and low and behold, half of the menu was named after Willy Wonka characters, the other half, were named after HARRY POTTER STUFF!!! There was the Haggrid, Dumbledoor, Fizzing Whizbeez, the Weazlee, and so on... everything was just BARELY misspelled, so that there weren't any trademark infringements.

Everything was delicious!! and fantastic!!! I can't wait to go back next week!! I'm going to bring my big camera next time i think though. hehe!!

Here are the pics we got!!

Me at Platform 9 3/4!!!

Hagrid, on one of the doors

The sign on their little half door that led behind the ice cream counter. "No Muggles Allowed."

The door to the bathroom, painted to look like the Fat Lady, who normally guards the gateway to the Gryffindor common room.

How fun is that?!?!?!?!

ok gotta go!

Best. Day Before My Birthday. Ever. pt. 1

What a great birthday!

Well, the day before my birthday...

Ok, let me start with Thursday.

When I got home from work Thursday, I found this "big dang box" on my front porch:

I didn't open it until today, (Saturday). It is a wrapped package from my Father-in-law and Stepmother-in-law. It is a GORGEOUS 12 spot cupcake tower. IT IS AWESOME!! I can't wait to use it next weekend when we have friends over!!! Thanks Dad and Pam!!!

After opening my gift, Tom and I sat down to watch the first movie of our Harry Potter-athon. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Woohoo!!

Friday, I took the day off from work. Tom was doing flex-time, which means that he was working from home. So we watched Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring in the morning. Then, we went to lunch, I stopped by the office to pick up a file from work, then came back home.

We watched Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, then headed off to my parents' house. My parents' had gotten me a cake, and we hung out there for a while. I had my picture taken in the dreaded birthday hat.

I got this hat for my dad's birthday a couple of years ago, it has been passed around throughout the family over the past two years lol. it's ummm... nice, right?? lol!

After coming back home, Tom and I watched Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, my lease favorite book and movie of the entire series. Anyway, after the movie Tom said "You want to open another birthday present? I've got a scavenger hunt for you!" It was a photo scavenger hunt... of DOORS IN OUR HOUSE. lol!! when I made it to the right door, I got another text with the next door on it. After about 7 or 8 doors, I was in our bedroom at our closet door, I got a text with a video of our closet door opening. So I opened the closet door, dug around a little bit in the closet and found this!!!

Do any of my fellow Disney fans know what this is??? It's Andy's Toy Box from Toy Story!!!! Look what it had inside:

It is a ten disc, blu-ray, dvd, special edition Complete Toy Story set!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been telling Tom for MONTHS, I wanted to get the movies, but I wanted to get the full set! And that's what I got for my birthday!!

Then, we went to bed. I got up around 1030 Saturday morning, we hung out for a while, then headed out to lunch, then to Home Depot looking for new grill racks for our grill, then did some dreaming for remodeling stuff we'll be doing on the house over the next couple of years. Then, we picked up our Harry Potter tickets for the show next Friday. We got our 3D glasses which are awesome:
They look like Harry's glasses!! They are freakin' awesome!!!

After getting our tickets, Tom stopped in the middle of the parking lot and said "Pick a number 1 through 10." I laughed really hard! and said "7!" So then, Tom reached into his wallet, and pulled out a Best Buy Gift Card! It was to cover getting me an Ipod radio charger for my office, he wanted to make sure I got to pick it out!! How awesome is that?? Well, the card was actually for TWICE what the radio I wanted cost! So I got my radio AND Cars and Wall-E on Blu Ray!! woohoo!!! Then, we hit up Starbucks for some iced frappuccinos. Then, Tom said "Pick a number 1 through 10". I laughed again, and said "4!" Then we went to Goodwill to donate some stuffed animals, and to look around for an old Monopoly set. Didn't find the set... if anyone has one they are willing to part with, please let me know!!

Anyway, then, we stopped at the house to drop off our purchases for the day. Then, we left for dinner. We went to Red Lobster in North Little Rock. We both got drinks.

I got a pina colada, and Tom got a Lobsterita! lol! It was great!

After dinner, we grabbed some dessert - See Best. Day Before My Birthday. Ever. pt. 2 for the details - and now we're at home watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

It's been a great birthday celebration!! Tomorrow I'm going to chill and relax!

Love you all!!
