A very good night

Well, for how the day started it couldn't have ended more perfectly.

Sean got off work early and happily announced that he received a Best Buy Teacher Grant award today toward his classroom technology supplies! This is quite an honor and I am so proud.

My sister and brother-in-law took the kids for the evening so we could go out for my birthday. I'm turning 36 this week and tonight was the only night for the next 10 days that was completely open.

We went downtown to the most wonderful library ever where I got to peruse at my leisure. This to me is the ultimate treat. I was actually looking at books outside of the children's section and not once had to shush anyone.

Afterwards, we went to Yat's. It's a small Cajun restaurant downtown with just the right amount of spice and atmosphere. It hit the spot on this cold winter's night.

Now we are off to watch a movie together and call it a night. A very good night.
