Birthday Day

Update: Just sent these pictures to my e-mail from my phone. Yesterday morning when I went into the kitchen, I found a present and two cards, one from Joe and one from Summer and Camryn. The cards were really cute and funny, and inside the gift bag was a pink thermos, which I desperately needed, and a pack of Starbucks frappuccino drinks.


Since we're buying a house, Joe wasn't supposed to get me anything. But that little something made my day :-)

I had a great birthday yesterday. I had talked my parents into getting me glasses for my birthday. At first, when they asked what I wanted, I said a Lowe's gift card. I had visions of using it for house things like paint or carpet. But then I realized that I needed to be able to see to paint, so I decided it would make more sense if they got me glasses, which they agreed to after a bit of begging. I've needed new glasses for quite some time, but that's one of those things as a mom that you keep putting off because you always put yourself last, you know? So it made sense, otherwise I'm not sure I would ever get any. My aunt Susan watched the girls while my mom and I went to the eye doctor and I picked out two frames (they had a buy one get one free sale). I'm pretty happy with them, although one pair needs to be adjusted. Here's the pair that fit:

After we got back from the glasses store, my mom went and got us lunch from Panera Bread. I got some type of chicken sandwich and black bean soup. It was delicious.

Yesterday evening we went to my parents house and my mom cooked one of my favorite meals, pepper steak.

It was extremely delicious, as always. I'm blessed to have parents that have always valued home-cooked meals.

After dinner, we had cake and ice cream. Summer looks a bit worried about that fire...

I am one lucky woman, to have this great husband and these beautiful little girls, all at the age of 22.

So, that was my birthday. It was pretty perfect.
