It was my birthday and I'll sing if I want to, dance it I want to, run if I want too!!!!!
Well, Yesterday was the big 2-8! Awh... that SOUNDS young! So, I had a great day! (even though I had to go to work) When I was heading to work, I got a voicemail- my parents singing "my child version" of Happy birthday. You know... Happy Birthday to you, happy Birthday to you, you look like a monkey and smell "one like too". Ok, so maybe I was a little TOO determined at the age of 8yrs that I had the words RIGHT and everyone else was WRONG. (insert image of child with determined on the edge of tantrum face here)
So, later at work, I received these....
...hand delivered from my grandmother and my daughter, along with a small Blondie Cake (which I cut into 3 pieces to share with my co-workers) Sorry, no pictures of the cake, it didn't last that long.
I also received 30+ birthday wishes on facebook from friends and family. Gotta love the easy method for people to greet you daily.
I spent the early evening after work, watching my daughters Tball game. Then we all went to my folks for takeout (didn't want to haul kids to a restaurant) CHIPOTLE!! And for dessert, LEMON MERINGUE pie!!!
For gifts this year, I had received a purse from my Grandparents....
my RoadID from my parents, a year membership to the new Anytime Fitness in our town, and a Wii game (this is really for the kids)
And my daughter MADE me a gift this year...
The hubby and I didn't do gifts to each other this year. We are happy to spend the money on something else, like a movie together, a race I may want to run (BRING IT CHICAGO RNR!!), a softball tournament he wants to play in, etc.
And on the running front, well, lets just say, I will get back on the wagon tomorrow.
And tomorrow, well that is LittleMan's 2yr birthday!!! So MUCH AHEAD!!
MonsterTruck Cake (just wait until you see this!)!
Visit to see Popa Jeff!
I think we wants his own cowboy boots this year too!!!
(I believe gma Penny is on this one!)
(LittleMan was in BigGirl's closet! She left her door open, and in our house, that means FREE ROAMING for LittleMan!! LOL!!!!!!)
