I came home from yoga with a little more patience for my computer. I uninstalled the "driver" for the cameras, reinstalled and voila...
On Saturday, Kelly and I started my birthday celebration at Top Pot Doughnuts in Seattle. I had only ever had their donuts from Starbucks, and after seeing this doughnut shop featured on Food Networks "Best Doughnuts in the Nation," I was excited to taste one nice and fresh. I had the Chocolate Feather Boa, and Kelly had the Apple Fritter.
We then headed up to Snoqualmie to go inner-tubing!
It was snowing like crazy, and we had a blast! How can you not when you don't even have to walk back up the hill after tubing down:

Then, we headed home and I opened my present from Kelly, a Kitchen Aid!!! Apparently I was quite excited:
After that we freshened up and went to my Aunt Michelle's house for an extremely tasty roast dinner and peanut butter bars for dessert. Taye and Je'Markus sang their little 3 year old hearts out in the cutest "Happy Birthday" I have ever heard. Sunday we did more of my favorite hobby, eating, and headed to Duke's on Ruston Way for dinner. I went to bed Sunday very full and very thankful for such a wonderful birthday weekend!

And, just because Taye is so stinkin' cute, here he is loving on my Aunt Michelle and Grandma:

Isn't Top Pot the best?!! We just discovered it about a month ago. There's one in Bellevue and I've been craving it ever since! My favorite was their raspberry jelly filled one with powdered sugar. In the fall they make a Chai Spiced one that I'm dying to try! ...mmm...donuts!
