Happy birthday to me!

Last Saturday was my birthday and it was pretty near perfect. Yes, my 27th birthday was just what I had hoped for. My 26th birthday was horrible, it involved paying someone $500 for work they didn’t do and a very bad migraine headache. I think I also cried and said things like, “please, can we leave here? please?.” Not one of my finest moments, just being real.

However, fast forward a year and we’re in our own home, my birthday rolls around and I get served breakfast in bed by a whole bunch of cuties.

“Mommy, we burnt the toast, but you like burnt toast, right?” OF COURSE I DO!

Brian made me this awesome, awesome, magnetic makeup board. Something I saw on Pinterest and had to have.  How to make your own, HERE.

Then, my absolute favorite part! My parents took all three girls to the mall (no easy task!) and let them pick out gifts for me. They gave me the glitteriest, fanciest, and sparkliest jewelry you’ve ever seen. Their original choices were

Elena: A $200 pair of hot pink high heels

Abbie: A bright red, plastic heart toothbrush holder that attaches to walls.

Lexi: The pink Barbie scooter

My mom talked them into choosing jewelry.

Then Brian and I taped our bedroom walls in preparation for stripes! More on that later this week. And I ate way too much homemade chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. It was perfect.

And unlike last year, there was no crying.

    I agree. Having your own space sweetens everything. I had some less than stellar moments in the last months before we moved.
    New blog looks great.

    I like your new home! Was it much trouble shifting from Blogspot to WordPress? I’ve been thinking of moving over to them.
