It's my birthday!
Well, actually yesterday was my birthday, but now is when I had time to sit down and blog about it. So, let's start with yesterday morning when I woke up......
It was about 8:30 AM, nice to sleep in on your birthday! My best girlfriend called me up to begrudgingly wish me a happy birthday! (she just likes to torture me) So we chatted for a while and while on the phone with her Atira lost her front tooth! WOW! I was so excited! Then my girlfriend quickly brought me back to reality, this is my birthday and it is not all about her losing her tooth! ;) After her phone call my loving husband was quick to call and also wish me a happy birthday, so nice! Well, my boy is still sleeping soundly at this point and he really should be up wishing me a happy birthday too. So, I yell down the hall "BOY!!!!" "BOY!!!!!" All I get is, "huh?". To which I yell, "WAKE UP IT'S MY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!" He really doesn't appreciate my birthday like I do, or the wake up call. Weird. So we finally get out of bed, I hop in the shower and my mother in law calls....did she time that? We all get ready to go and I take us out to IHOP for breakfast when my mom calls to wish me a happy birthday too! I have the stuffed french toast, OH MY YUM!! That was so delicious! Then I drag my unhappy little angels with me off to the thrift store for a mini shopping spree for myself! They really don't enjoy themselves at the thrift store when I am shopping for myself, but I figured it's my birthday they can suffer a little for their dear sweet mother!I get a chance to talk to MIL on the way to the store, it was so nice to hear more happy wishes for a wonderful day! We leave the thrift store and hubby calls, he is home! WOO HOO! We head on home (saving my neglected babies from another thrift store excursion). We get home and hubby has bought me a dozen red roses! Then he shows me the cake he bought me, german chocolate! I could PUKE! I hate german chocolate and he knows it! But he is a man, did he just forget, or is he a dork? Do I get mad, or do I love him for at least coming up with this one by himself? Well, as I run all these thoughts through my head it dawns on me that he is messin' with me on my birthday! I try to give him a punch to the gut, and he bursts out laughing! He got me, and he knew it! While still laughing, he pulls out the real thing, my chocolate cake! What a buttface. And I love him. We all sit outside in our sukkah (it is sukkot right now, ya know!) and eat chocolate cake. I could not think of a better way to spend time with my family on my birthday. It was so beautiful outside and the cake was delicious. We then make plans with my mom to meet up for Chinese food for dinner. Another, OH MY YUM! It was fun and totally delish! My birthday was perfect. While sitting on the couch after dinner my hubby reminds that our message clock had been programmed, scrolling across it says "Happy Birthday Brat". Great day, great evening, great food and the best company! I am so very blessed, thank you Abba!
