So I Turned 35 Last Week...

Yikes! I cannot believe I am old 35 years of age now!

For the past week or so I have been dreaming of writing some nostolgic post..but alas it never came or happened.

I had thought about being coy and tried to come up with 35 things I want to accomplish in the next year of my life, but I only came up with about 5...yeah, I am a pretty motivated gal, I know.

So instead I will share with you how my birthday went down (because, after all, I know that you have been waiting and waiting to hear about this day, right?)...

It actually started the Saturday before my birthday, after a full day at the air show and watching the Blue Angels, we took our oldest daughter to my mom's and the other three were spending the night with my mother-in-law. In case you didn't catch it, let me explain it a little better:

1 child at grandma's + 3 children at oma's = mom and dad alone for the evening!!

So we decided to celebrate my birthday and went to Houlihan's Restaurant. To make it a little more romantic, this happens to be the place where we met almost 15 years ago!! As we were waiting for our food, Brian pointed out where I was sitting the night we met. I was there with a couple of girlfriends and he was our waiter!! He asked for my phone number that night. I didn't give it to him then, but went back the next night and gave it to him. He remembered where I sat that night too!!! Yeah, he so earned some brownie points with all that remembering! Okay, so I am getting a little nostolgic.....

Moving on to the rest of the birthday celebration..Sunday, of course, was church. After church was dinner at my mom's followed by my fave...

chocolate cake.


At this time we didn't have my younger kiddos yet later Sunday evening we went to pick them up. There I was greeted with some very special presents from of kind birthday cards and very rare pieces of literature :) my kids are very crafty and original...

I love that.

They did not get it from me.

On my actual birthday the kids had to go back to school, Brian had to go back to three year old, Miss Lou Lou, as I like to call her, went to Sonic.

That my friends, was my birthday.

Aren't you glad I shared it with you?

Hope you are having a great week!
