So, my birthday was wonderful. We did sort of a revolving dinner party that started on Friday night and ended on Tuesday night, with a break on Monday night! It was only because nobody could coordinate their schedules to get together on the same night. So Friday we had dinner at home with our friend M and her girls, and then Saturday we went out with J & M and I got my tattoo (see the “inked” post below). Sunday we got up early and went to the zoo with our friend C & S and their trio (and Gamma!) and then Tuesday we went out with A & T. Phew!
Sunday was my actual birthday, and the kids were so cute. They came into my room with presents they had picked out themselves. N was holding a bag and a card and J was holding a little wrapped box and a card. They also picked out the cards themselves, so I have a “Cars” card from N and a card with a pony on it from J. As I was reading N’s card, J started to blurt out what was in the box she was holding. “It’s a brac…” and H and I managed to call her off (even though I knew what she was saying). We told her presents are supposed to be a surprise. So she waited patiently as N handed me his bag, and as he said:
“It’s a purse! You can put your bracelet in it!”
We just fell apart laughing. It was so cute. Then I opened J’s box to find not a bracelet, but a necklace. Beautiful. I’m such a lucky girl.
It’s been a super busy week and I’m finally starting to unwind. I have a whole bunch of posts brewing and hopefully I’ll get to one or two this weekend.
Below, my “bracelet” and below that, my lovelies.
