I want to thank everyone for all their birthday wishes. Today was a very good day.

When I arrived at work today, I had this amazing package from the Hershey Gods. Nancy had this tower package sent to me. It has so much chocolate and cookies that I will be visiting Jenny Craig and Lucille Roberts soon.
It came with a one pound solid chocolate cake with my name on it. My staff was trying to sneak it from my office all day. Thank God it is good for six months

I have been wanting to go to Serendipity 3 for dinner for the longest time.
So finally Mark.. the dearest man in my life and a fantastic friend ( ladies he is single ) took me to dinner there finally. We have this new restaurant tradition for our birthdays.

The desserts were amazing and of course I had their famous frozen hot chocolate. Mark had the will and determination to start his hot fudge sundae but it conquered him.

I enjoyed the frozen hot chocolate and my burger was great !

And who am I to let great ice cream go to waste. Mark enjoyed taking this picture of me --------->

And I almost got away without having the embarassing 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' sing-a-long. Since I had embarassed Mark at his birthday dinner in December he was determined to embarass me.

So while I was on line at the new Container Store on Lexington Avenue buying a holder for my monster stash, he proceeded to tell the cashier that it was my birthday. And they all broke out into song. All the cashiers at the container store, all 8 of them started to sing. And Mark was in his glory. He was jumping and laughing like he had just won lotto.

Its okay... its all love ... much love.

And I promise ..knitting pics soon to follow.

Sounds like a good birthday to me! You'll have to come visit me - we can go to Hershey Park (amusement park) & Chocolate World, where you learn all about chocolate (and can buy some, too). I know there's that big Hershey's store around Times Square - but Times Square doesn't smell like chocolate! :-)

Happy B-Day Belle. Chocolate, yum! How can any birthday be bad when it involves chocolate. Don't worry, Nancy's time is coming and she knows it. -Rinaldo

Girl! We tried to get into Serendipity last week (we were there for spring break) but it was an HOUR and a HALF wait! We just had to keep moving, we only had three days in town and life is too short. But I've heard about that frozen hot chocolate! Next time, next time.
