Today is my Birthday
As I get older birthdays are less and less exciting. I think my best birthday ever was a surprise Sweet 16 my parents threw me....of coarse that was a long, long, long time ago...
As birthdays go this was a great one:) I got to sleep in (which all moms know is AWESOME!!!) I woke up to a plate of pancakes with a whipped cream smiling face a top of a cute little table I've had my eye on for 6+ months and drawings from my boys, a fresh fruit smoothie and coffee...
Here is the funny part. I sit down at the table feeling elated about turning 34 in such a way with my sons and husband clearly enjoying the celebration as much as me. I'm sipping hot creamy coffee and smiling, my husband is snapping photos and I don't even care that I haven't looked in a mirror yet and that I'm still in my PJ's....smile, smile, smile...
Blake says, "Why do you have spots all over your face mommy?"
I look at my husband who looks mortified and says, "That's not nice Blake" and looks at me and politely reveals to me that overnight I have developed two choice ZITS! Ahhh, don't you just love it? As if I wasn't feeling old and hideous enough as it was. I have to laugh however...if only we'd had that on video we could have won, America's Funniest Home Videos!
A wonderful lunch with my dad & step mom and a movie with the hubs, Avatar in 3D!
2 bottles of wine
wine glass charms
wine bottle stoppers
I guess they know me pretty well:) I'm enjoying a birthday glass of Merlot right now and some quiet time just for me...
