boy was my birthday weekend an amazing time of being showered with love. it seriously lasted 3 whole days and i can say it was my best birthday EVER!
here’s the rundown:
FRIDAY– my actual birthday
jon came home early from work (always a treat for me), gave me my present (an electric sander–score! i asked for it for all my furniture refinishing dreams),
we took the kids and went to Noodles & Company (i had a free meal from them because it was my birthday),
took the kids home for cake (thanks Nana!) and bed,
and then jon and i went to a movie (whoa, we never do that and again, such a treat!).
SATURDAY—i garage-saled all morning and then my besties planned a girls’ night out at PF Chang’s and boy was it delicious! they are such encouragements to me. thanks, ladies for the fun night!
SUNDAY—Busch Gardens!!!! it was on my 30 before 30 list to go on a roller coaster and we went on probably 15! the day was gorgeous weather and there were NO lines. it was just an amazing day with my husband (full of german sausages, funnel cakes, and other amazing foods) and i was seriously in pure bliss all day long. we missed the kids, yes, but had such a great time together!
we saw a show there as well–another thing checked off my list!
yes, there was a lot of eating and yes, there was a lot of poundage gained. IT WAS WORTH IT!!!!………..(she says in a trailed off voice)
gosh, i felt overwhelmingly LOVED by all my friends and family who celebrated with me and who called, sent cards and gifts, and who wished me so many warm birthday blessings online. THANK YOU!
here’s to a great new year of life!
