Birthday Recap

So yesterday was my birthday! I turned the big 27! I have already decided I am old because I rang this birthday in without a lot of fanfare and it was perfect.

First off, my husband is awesome. He woke up early went to the store, surprised me with a card and pink roses (my favorite), and piping hot white chocolate mocoa from Starbucks. I would have never guessed he would bring me Starbucks in bed so I was very excited. He also made me delicious french toast and bacon in bed. Then B gave me his present my mom helped him pick out from all the kids, a new hand mixer. Sounds boring but I was also very excited because the motor on mine is going out. Good job mom! Then the girls bring me a gift because B neglected to tell Max or the girls that the mixer was from all the kids. The girls got me a $15 Starbucks gift card and chocolate. Now I can buy Starbucks and not feel guilty! The kids all made me cards and B even sounded professional. The front said "For the Greatest Mom Ever" and the inside said, "Mom, I hope all your wishes come true. Happy Birthday. Love, B." I think he has a future in card writing.

Max took me to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch with the kids. We had never been. It was yummy (especially the baked sweet potatoes with marshmallow whip with pineapple) but a little expensive. Oh well, I guess everything is expensive when you have a family of 5.

The rest of the evening was low key and relaxing. How nice!

Today me and my girlfriends went and saw "He's Just Not That Into You." It was adorable and was especially cute if you have read the book. Being a newly divorced women back on the dating market a few years back I read the book and tried to stick to its principles. I was determined not to fall into the same dating "loser" rut that many women fall into. If you have not read the book. It is great! I would recommend it to anyone who is single.

It was a great birthday!

I didn't know you had breakfast and Starbucks in bed! It sounds like a great birthday. I was just thinking that we aren't nearly as wild as we once were...I think I like our tame celebrations more!
