I had such a fantastic birthday this year. I am sure I will will try to recreate it for years to come because it was just so delightful (I realize that probably sounded sarcastic, but I'm actually serious)!!
We kicked things off the the Sunday before my birthday with a joint family celebration for Angie and I (our birthdays are two days apart) at Honey and GPs.
We got lots of fun gifts!!
Honey and GP graciously let the Cs nap at their house while we met up with the Svobodas and took the bigs to a small town Texas treasure.
You would think for all the swamp and hunting shows I have seen snipits of I would be more familiar but somehow this gem on the Animal Planet slipped through the cracks.
So on March 1st, my actual b-day I woke up at my leisure and after the bigs were off to school I had the whole morning to myself. Ahhhhh such a treat!!!
(Oh my gosh are these the most boring details ever? Sorry, I'll try to pick up the pace here!)
As if I hadn't been spoiled enough, that night Stacey had arranged for Sarah to come into town and keep all the kids and surprised me with dinner at Cheeves Brothers, a great steak house in Temple, and a night away!!
I took my camera and had great intentions of actually taking a picture of us all dolled up and out on the town, but I got to the hotel without my tights. And since I was turning 35 and not 16 the dress I brought was too short to wear without tights so an impromptu trip to the Target trumped the picture I had imagined.
Guess I lied about the no more boring details bit. ;)
Then, just to round out the perfection of my birthday week, on Sunday night Katy had coordinated a girls birthday dinner with some of my besties, new and old, at Chuy's.
