It is so nice to have a weekend birthday! Rick and Brittany were both off of work, so we got to spend the whole day together. It started by sleeping in, which I love to do! Then Rick was a good sport and went to Michael's and the mall with the girls. It wasn't all drudgery for him, though~we ate lunch at The Cheesecake Factory! While Emma napped, Brittany and I scrapbooked. It's so fun to do that with her. In the evening, we went out for a dinner of appetizers and dessert ('cause you know that on your birthday, the calories and fat grams don't stick to you!). Then we watched a movie.
We scrapbooked more on Sunday afternoon. Then we drove to Amherst (@90 minutes each way) to have dinner with the boys. Emma enjoyed her first grilled cheese sandwich. It was a hit!
Brittany and Emma gave me a combined birthday/Christmas gift: 2 tickets to see Carrie Underwood in October! I am SOOOOOOO excited! Brittany and I will go. Her friend, Kristen, will watch Emma until Rick gets home from work. Did I mention that I am SOOOOOOO excited?
Rick and the boys went in together for a BEAUTIFUL Coach purse for me! I LOVEY it! It's is burnished leather in the most beautiful shade of grey. Check out Rick's face~he was pretending to be sad about the purse (the kids were teasing him about how much he put in versus the boys, who are poor college students! LOL) Did I mention that I LOVEY it?
Today I was able to spend a few more hours scrapbooking. I made a lot of progress this weekend! Tomorrow, it is back to work!
Thanks to all of you for sending me you sweet birthday wishes!
