So this is probably going to be a little bit of repeat of what I've already said on my family blog, but whatever!

My birthday was great, no, not great, fabulous! Everything I wanted it to be!

Around 2:30, while I was working out, the doorbell rang. And it was flowers for me! Of course they were from my awesome husband. Sophia absolutely loved them too, she's such a girl. Oh and also, by then I talked to many of my lovely family members wishing me happy birthday and I'd also gotten a landslide (okay like four) of birthday cards. Ooh and some of them contained giftcards, which most likely will not last until tomorrow. See why I love my birthday so much?

When Matthew came home around four we all started getting ready to go out for some shopping and an early dinner. He went ahead and let me open my present from my in-laws, a new charm for my Pandora bracelet! (It was a cute little flip-flop, which is making me long desperately for flip-flop weather!). We went to Best Buy first because Matthew wanted me to pick out a movie for us to watch. (See, he's always encouraging me to buy something other than clothes, it rarely works!).  I ended up with the first season of Battlestar Galactica (nerd alert, I know!). After that we went out for some yummy Italian. It was such a treat, having a nice dinner as a family, since we rarely go out. The kids were both well-behaved and enjoyed themselves. Wait, scratch that last, Sophia hollered loudly when we weren't stuffing food in her mouth and Elijah struck up a very in-depth conversation with the people in the booth next to us, but other than that it was great! After dinner we went shopping at Kohls where I picked out a new pair of shoes. It wasn't a hard decision to make, since I spotted a pair on the mannequin when we walked in and was like "THOSE!". I'm such a decisive shopper, I swear. Anyway, I'm sort of in love with them. Matthew was a little freaked out by how tall they make me, since I usually wear flats these days, but I was like, "Dude, I'm 5'3" I can afford some extra height!"

Aren't they fabulous? I'm going to wear them while I vaccum later.
I wanted to keep shopping since I had a bunch of giftcards from my parents and grandparents burning a hole in my pocket, but the kiddos were falling out sleepy, so we headed home for cake. Finally we got the kids in bed and sat down to watch my new DVD (trying to convince Matthew that Battlestar Galatica is awesome and not lame). Admittedly, we went to bed at ten because we were both completely exhausted. I guess that's what life is like when you're pushing thirty! Ha.


  1. LOVE the shoes! Those are great! I know all about being 5'3 and needing an extra illusion of height;)

  2. Awww yay! The tulips are gorgeous! How cute that Sophia loved them, too ;) So glad you had such a wonderful birthday and have shoes that make you feel great - and happy - and tall! Even while vacuuming ;) haha
