Thanks for everyones birthday wishes on my previous post!! :mrgreen: I hope you enjoyed seeing photos of my past birthday cakes. It was fun compiling them all for the post!


So, I’ve been enjoying the hotel’s amenities on my birthday. I started my morning with breakfast in bed with my hubby. We liked ordering room service for his birthday so much, we decided to do it again for mine. Breakfast in bed definitely makes a birthday a little more special! 😉


I had two eggs over easy with homefries and a blueberry muffin.


And, of course, coffee.



After breakfast, I got ready to exercise in the hotel gym. Unfortunately, I forgot my sneakers! 😯 Luckily, Mal brought his, so I borrowed them. I looked ridiculous with huge sneakers on my feet, but they actually worked pretty well. Once I started running, I didn’t even notice how big they were on my feet. I just tied them really tight!


At the gym, I ran almost 4 miles on the treadmill followed by 30 minutes on the elliptical. I alternated between 15 minutes on the treadmill and 15 minutes on the elliptical for a 60-minutes workout. I finished up with about 10 minutes of stretching and then hit the pool to work on my tan.

For lunch, I enjoyed my pug cookie and an iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts. Obviously, this “meal” was not nutritious at all, but, hey, it’s my birthday. Cookies and coffee are totally acceptable! 😉



The wedding is just an hour away, so I need to get ready! I’m so excited!!!




  1. Happy Freakin’ Birthday!!!! I’m sure you will have a fantastic day,a nd a great night at the wedding!!!

  2. Nothing in the world says “happy birthday to me” like having a day when you eat to suit your fancy, and not necessarily your optimal diet. I often play the game “if life were consequence free, what would I eat until the cows came home?” and I like to spend my birthday putting the theory into practice just a bit… 🙂 May you have a day of hedonism and a happy birthday, too!

  3. Birthdays are all about doing what you want! Loving the pug cookie, so cool! Can’t believe you did a workout though, I would so use my bday as an excuse not to.

  4. I completely believe that birthday’s shouldn’t have any nutritional value at all.
    I think it should be guilt free.

    Enjoy the wedding!

    Happy birthday once again

  5. Your day wouldn’t be complete if your didn’t hear from your mother on your birthday!! Happy Birthday Christine!! Wow. 30 years! Is that as hard for you to believe as it is for me? Looks like you’re having plenty of birthday/ wedding fun! Enjoy the rest of the night. Love, Mom

  6. Happy Belated Birthday GLAD YOUR ENJOYING YOUR BIRTHDAY IN TRUE FASHION with breaky in bed, a good gym session, bubbles. sounds perfect.

    Also, love the dress you chose to wear. so beautiful.

  7. Hey, if you can’t have a gigantic pug cookie for lunch on your birthday, when CAN you have it? Happy birthday again! I hope you’re having a great day 🙂


  8. Yay! Breakfast in bed and a cookie lunch? Best. Birthday. Ever. Particularly as you’ll surely be getting wedding cake tonight, too. Woot!

  9. My boyfriend wears a size 12 sneaker. If I tried to run in his shoes, I’d definitely fly out of them and land on my face. (I’m wear a size 8) haha. I love working out while I’m away from home! When we went to Boston last summer, we walked everywhere and climbed the Bunker Hill Monument. That was my workout for the trip.

    And BTW, I think it’s awesome that you ate a cookie for lunch on your birthday. You deserve it!

  10. I’m so impressed that you ran despite forgetting your shoes – I would have taken that as a sign to take the day off. Good for you!
    Cookies and coffee are often my lunch – or breakfast – of choice. Sometimes you just need caffeine and sugar to balance all those veggies…
