The Conclusion Of My Thirty-One Day Birthday Celebration

Today is the final day of my birthday continuance and it has been greeeeeat!  What a month it has been.  I originally wanted to go for a hike today, but that didn't work out.  So instead, I woke up early and went for my run and got that out of the way.  Next up, it was time to tackle the lawn.  I mowed, pulled a few weeds, dead headed the flowers, and spent some time working in our garden.  We have had so much rain that everything just keeps on growing, including the weeds.  With that done, it was time to clean up, grab some lunch, yogurt, and call my mama.  Speaking with mom, I was caught up on the latest going on there in Texas to what the weather is doing all over the world.  I know where not to go this weekend due to storms.  All I could think about was that I wanted to make some ice cream for my final commemoration of my occasion this year.  I decided upon Birthday Brownie Brittle Ice Cream, YUM!!!  It's basically Vanilla Ice Cream with Chocolate Chip Brownie Brittle and Confetti Sprinkles.  Those who know me also know I love me some sprinkles, just like all my children.  Hmmmmm, I wonder where they get that from?
