Today is my birthday and I turned 37 and I think I am really OK with that. I had a great day with my family, my girls made their dad take them out to get me presents and they came up with the perfect items. Haven got me a new makeup bag (she accidently broke the zipper on my old one) and Brittan got me two canvases and some brushes (she knows how much I miss painting). They also made some adorable statues out of clay, so sweet!
I received so many well wishes from friends (THANK YOU!) that always make me feel special and loved, that totally fills my heart!
Hubby surprised me with my presents yesterday, and then today we headed to the farm so I could collect the last of my surveys, I think I have a total of 11 left to get! The kids and Ryan picked some strawberries since today was the last day of the season and I stood in the sun and gathered data, not the ideal outing on my birthday, but necessary. We then went to lunch and hit a local dog adoption event since I am looking to add another dog to the family. We found a sweet, sweet five year old pug, but they required too much (home visit, references and a HUGE adoption fee) and while I think the pug would have been a perfect addition to our family, calm and sweet with a great disposition, I am not going to jump through that many hoops so we had to pass. We will find the right new family member, it just will take some time :)
After that I ran into Old Navy to grab a few quick items for the upcoming trip then we headed home and my poor exhausted husband went to bed while I took Brittan to a sleepover and fed the crew. Now the babies are tucked into bed, Haven and Gray are relaxing and the hubby is still asleep (I will wake him soon so we can have dinner) and I think I am the luckiest woman on earth.
