Happy Birthday to ME!

Big day for me today....today I turned THIRTY-THREE!

Oh my goodness. I'm definitely in my thirties now. And it's crazy that I am.

The day was a good one! It started out with Matthew kissing me goodbye and telling me Happy Birthday as he was leaving for work (nope, I don't get out of bed and fix him a breakfast each morning. I sleep as long as possible!). About an hour later my two favorite little girls got into bed with me.

I had to remind them that it was my birthday....they don't have very good memories :). Elyn started crying because she wanted it to be her birthday too.

I finally drug my body out of bed and discovered that my wonderful husband had put up birthday signs all over the house. We had fun locating them all morning (in the refrigerator, in the pantry, in my purse, in both bathrooms).

I weighed myself and then decided we should head to the gym (ha!).

After the gym, I met up with my friends, Danielle and Jasmine, for lunch and cupcakes! It was a very nice time being with them!

Then, we hit the road for ballet. Elyn fell asleep on the way. That was her nap today. Awesome.

When we got home, Matthew was waiting for us with a balloon and big birthday sign.

Such a good husband!

After I showered (which I had not done yet...before I became a stay-at-home mom, I would have NEVER gone all day without showering....things change-big time!), we headed out for my birthday dinner at Shogun!
Our attempt at a family picture. I think my head looks like it is the size of the globe (seriously) and I think that Nora is hilarious, trying to peek around the HUGE planet in front of her.

Then, our waitress offered to help out. Nora and Elyn were not thrilled with her offer, obviously.
Then, it was time for the Shogun fun! Elyn was very serious while watching our chef perform.
Nora told me, after the fire display, that she got burned. She was serious too. Think we can sue?
Check out the rice heart! He made it "beat" with the spatula....hilarious!
Elyn ate a TON of food tonight!
Bad picture of Nora but I was trying to get a picture of her eating with chopsticks. She would take both of them, one in each hand, and shovel the food to her mouth. It was funny but I was too slow....because I was too busy enjoying my food.
My sweet girls!
At the end of the meal the female waitresses sang me the Shogun version of "Happy Birthday". I guess it was in Japanese...I don't know. Nora asked, after it was over, "What was that?"
When we got back home, it was present/cake time....okay, I had already opened the presents, so it was just cake time. (Side note: I told Matthew that I did not want any gifts this year. I was serious about it too. It seems silly to me to spend money on things that I really don't NEED. He kind of listened to me :). The girls got me presents, which I understand. They were excited to give them to me and watch me open them. Elyn gave me "trash". That's what she called it. It was a wal-mart bag saver....and we REALLY needed one! I had mentioned a while back that I would like a digital food scale. Guess who listened (Matthew) and guess what I got (from Nora). AND Matthew did tell me I could download Volume 2 of Glee...and I did.)
My cake! Isn't it pretty? With all 33 candles glowing...fire hazard. Matthew and the girls made the cake and it was delicious!
So, there you have it, my birthday. It was a special day because I got to spend it with friends and my 3 favorite people on this Earth. And I received about 5 million Facebook birthday wishes-that was awesome!
I wonder what this year will bring? I'm not big on surprises....I like to know what to expect. I always try to get surprises out of Matthew and it drives him crazy. He wants me to enjoy the whole experience, the anticipation and all.
I know many surprises will occur during this year. Some will be good and some I will probably wish I could do without.
I do know this though, I will grow in my relationships with my husband and children, I desire to grow in my relationship with God and I hope to grow in my friendships.
Thank you blog friends for helping make my thirty-second year such a great one...

Happy Birthday! Glad it was a good one. We always go to Miyabi (Knoxville's version of Shogun) to celebrate my birthday. Madison hates the fire....the other 2 love it. Caleb said he wanted to be a chef there when he got bigger...I don't think he noticed that none of the guys cooking have blond hair and blue eyes :)
