It's my birthday and I'll cry if I want to

Yup, it's my b-day today. Don't ask how old I am because I believe in the strict 'don't ask don't tell' policy. But, I will tell you that I got a new set of Wolfgang Puck stainless steel cookware (Chris), a new cook book (the boys) and a new purse (Katie and Ash) and I am thrilled. That makes me 'mature' to be happy to get cookware. Read into that whatever you will, but good pots and pans and a new cook book are like legal crack to me. 

I have spent the day lounging in satin pajamas, sipping mimosa's and enjoying a massage, pedi-mani and facial.

 NOT. 

 Actually I have spent the day shampooing carpets, cleaning out the refrigerators, steam cleaning tile and doing laundry. Oh, and I made a couple of dozen breakfast tacos and froze them for the upcoming weeks. Reality sucks, but it's my reality and I asked for it. I did order pizza to be delivered for dinner and that's a rare treat around here. I plan on pigging out. OINK!

Right now Chris is at church, Katie is off volunteering with a group that spends time with teenage foster kids helping them to find their way in the world, Levi is watching Mrs. Piggle Wiggle (awesome video series based on the books) and Ahren is running around wearing underwear (backwards) and cowboy boots.  Oh wait, he just took the underwear off and placed it on his head. He is soooo much like Levi it scares me! (And now he brought me underwear to put on MY head...which of course I am wearing ;-)

Happy Birthday to ME! Now where did I put that bottle of wine......

Happy Birthday to you! I don't know which I'd be more excited about...the purse or the cookware. I loves me a nice new purse. Girl can never have too many. I hope your day was a great one, even with the underwear on your head. Who says married women with children don't know how to LIVE! Woo hoo!

I totally get it. I have a love affair with All Clad, and my 20 year old thinks that is just sad.
