I forgot to blog about my birthday. It was October 25th. One of the main reasons why I love the fall.
I guess turning 29 isn't so glamorous. 29. Yikes. One more year until the big 3-0.
My sweet family was so good to me on my birthday, though, so I have to brag on them for a sec.
Mary Ella told me "Happy Birthday" the minute she woke up, without being prompted or anything.
Then she said, "Oh no, Mama. Daddy don't have you a present. He's a grilch." (her word for "Grinch" since she couldn't remember the exact way to say it.) I laughed so hard. Then I told her it was 7am and that Daddy had all day long to come up with a present, so she need not worry. Haha...
I picked Mary Ella up from school a little early and we went to Taziki's for lunch. Chad met us there and after eating lunch we went next door to Gigi's Cupcakes for a birthday treat. I swear, those cupcakes are so good. I'm a huge Edgar's fan and nothing will ever top an Edgar's strawberry cupcake, but I think Gigi takes the cake, literally, with some of her cupcake flavors. Citrus Dream remains my favorite (which I happened to try because a neighbor had some left over from a work party; I would've never ordered a citrus cupcake on my own.) I've had quite a few other flavors too. How many? I am ashamed to admit. But if you need a suggestion you can let me know. :)
Anyway, Chad went back to work and the kids and I went home and took a long afternoon nap.
Chad had planned for us to go to dinner that night and his parents watched our kids while we ate at Fleming's (my fave) and he gave me my birthday surprise: a Waxing Poetic necklace! I was so excited. It has 3 charms on it; a big M for Morgan, and then 2 smaller charms with a little 'm' and 's' for Mary Ella and Sam. Mom bought me a gold oval shaped charm with a cross on it so I'm loving my new necklace!
Chad also brought me home a cookie cake, some dill pickle flavored Pringles (a recent craving; don't judge) and some Dr. Pepper 10. (another craving. I know.)
It was such a great birthday for me and next year will be even more special! The big 3-0 and I'll have 3 kiddos! I'm ready!
