Yes, that's right another year older!!! I just love my birthday, minus the fact I get another year older!!! I love that it is my day, the special day in which I get special treatment! I can justify minor purchases (such as a skirt or scrapbook item). This year is the first year my husband got me a great gift... of course he waited until today to get it, and I had to watch the kids so he could do so! No big deal! And he did a great job! Also, my wonderful father made a cheescake (my favorite). My mother-in-law got me nice flower for my pots outside, she made the comment she could have got me a card, but who keeps those - obviously she hasn't seen the pile of mine stashed away ready to be scrapbooked! Actually I prefer the flowers.... I love flowers, the ones I can plant and enjoy for months. The kiddos also baked me a cake, and I got my fave ice cream cupcakes... it was simply a day of favorites. And most importantly I got to spend it with my family, my mom and dad, and inlaws.
