My first birthday in the US!

My husband's Filipino style spaghetti
 Yesterday was my 32nd birthday, and yes it was my first birthday here in the US.  At first we were planning to cooked a lot of food but then we realized we didn't have any visitors, its a good thing my mother in law showed up for the dessert even though it was raining so hard yesterday.  My husband ask me what do I want for him to cook for my birthday, I told him I want some Filipino dishes, so he go and went shop for the ingredients while I clean the house.  My husband ended up making Filipino style spaghetti, Lumpia (egg rolls), fried chicken and also baked my birthday cake.  I help him with doing the prep and I cooked the main ingredients for the lumpia so that its ready for wrapping.  I was frustrated because I got the wrong wrapper,which was the Vietnamese egg roll wrapper, but its a good thing its turn out good when we start to fry it.

It was a tiring day because of all the preparations and cooking that we do (husband did a lot of cooking, I just help him), and all of a sudden we got a call back about an apartment that we saw online and we have to break and go take a look at it.  It was located in downtown so its an hour drive back and forth.  Anyhow we did have fun celebrating my birthday, although I wish my family (in the Philippines) was here with me, I bet they will really enjoy all the foods my husband cooked.  The spaghetti was good also, my husband did it really like its a filipino style, he did bought a quezo de bola and it really taste good, and he also put some hotdogs hehe, I loved it!

A toast for more birthdays to come!
Finally it was time to blow the candle, so they gather up for me my husband, father in law and my step mother in law to sing  me  a happy birthday, I was so touched because they sing it form their hearts the only missing is my family in the Philippines and my birthday would be complete.  I got a birthday greeting card from Cathy my mother in law, she was so sweet she inserted some cash also.  If not for my husband effort's to cook even though he still have to work early the next day, my birthday will not be possible.  I am very thankful to God for another year of my life, thank You Lord God for all the blessings and guidance, thank you for giving me such a wonderful husband like my husband.  Thank you for my new family here in the US they are a blessing for me and my husband.  Thank you for giving me a loving family who always supports me and always think of me even though we are thousand of miles away from each other, I could still feel their love and prayers for me.  All in all I enjoyed my birthday and hopefully this Christmas we will celebrate it in our new apartment.
