I'm officially 36! I've had a really good weekend. I went for a pedicure with my friend Julie yesterday morning and my goodness I don't know why I wait a year between appointments! Must. Go. More. Often. After an afternoon of lounging around due to thunderstorms, I baked and cleaned, so that we could have a little family gathering today. My parents and in-laws came for brunch and it was yummy! My kids and husband got me a thistle feeder and seed for the backyard, and an IPod adapter for my car. Woohoo! I'm so tired of listening to the one good station around here. Now I just need to get more music on the IPod, as it dumped a bunch once trying to sync it to the computer. My in-laws got me some lovely serving spoons and forks, as there are never enough to go around when you need them. And my parents gave me a little monetary treat to spend on myself (clothes, more pedicures, coffee!). Meg and Drew made me cards that I just love, and I even got an arrangement of gerber daisies from Doug on Friday. Oh, and cake. Of course I had cake and not one I had to make myself! Really, it was just a lovely way to spend my birthday.
And because I love the mail so much, Auntie Nettie sent along a couple of gift packages for me. Hooray for the mail lady (yes, we have a mail lady) coming to my house twice in one week! She sent me a little Nancy Drew quote book ( I LOVE Nancy Drew) and a Mom Mood Magnet for the fridge. But she saved the best for last with something straight from this. I never knew that muffin top pans existed, but thanks to her I am set for life! Thank goodness Auntie Nettie and I read some of the same blogs. MWAH Auntie Nettie (oh and I got your voicemails but I was out galavanting with my family at the softball closing ceremonies!)!!!
So in all it's been a great weekend and I wish it wasn't ending. But, since the kids were up at 6 for the day, I'm tired and feeling my age (hahaha!) and will be heading to bed sooner rather than later.
