They Say It's Your Birthday

My birthday, actually.

Well, technically yesterday.  But I'm of the belief that birthdays should be celebrated for as long as possible.  Since yesterday was my actual birthday and hubs and I are going out on my birthday date tomorrow evening, I consider today a celebratory day by default.

The older you get, the harder it is to celebrate birthdays I think.  Not because I don't want to get older (it's debatable), but more just because there's life to do.  It doesn't stop for birthdays.  I've still got kids to cart to school, homework papers to check, lessons to get to, bills to pay, etc. etc.  So it's really meaningful to me with hubs and the kids go out of their way to make my day special, despite all the life we have to do.

So while hubs worked yesterday, I treated myself and the two younger princesses to lunch at Panera Bread.  It was nice to just hang with my babies and eat my fave broccoli cheddar soup on the first real coolish day of the season.

Then following school and piano lessons, I came home to dinner waiting, gorgeous flowers on the table and presents wrapped.

There was also this ridiculously amazing (AH - MAZING) chocolate mousse cake from Whole Foods.  Which sadly, I realize I did not get a picture of.  You're going to have to just trust me.  It was good.

The evening ended with a light knock at the door.  Once I had hubs answer it (it WAS after 9.  I'm a bit of a chicken), we discovered that someone (or someones) thought it would be fun to fork our yard.  I'm pretty sure I haven't had this happen since I was in highschool.  The glow sticks were a nice touch.  The girls thought it was the best birthday present EVER.

I don't think it was half bad either.

I think 34's going to be a pretty good year.
