This guy worked really hard to make everything special for me.
Patisserie 46 on "our table." It was very sweet. Then I went home and the girls told me to shower…sometimes an optional activity as a Mom. Then they all got dressed up and brought me out to the van and asked me to go in the back seat because Steve was going to be my chauffeur. Then they provided me with a beverage and snack. Then they pulled out my "Mom Books" that they had written in for my birthday for me to read on the drive. They took me on a scenic route around the lakes and then dropped me off at a spa. They had made me an appointment for a massage and pedicure. It was wonderful and I loved it! Then they picked me up and took me to Chipotle for lunch. Again, no cooking, my favorite. Then the 6 of us went to see a few houses on the Remodelers Showcase. This is also one of my favorite things to do. The girls were good and we all enjoyed it. Then Steve arranged for a sitter for the evening and we met friends for a wonderful dinner.
The next day was more family activities. We went on a 11 mile bike ride and stopped at a wonderful park for a picnic and playing. The weather was perfect and it was one of my favorite days as a parent so far. Everyone was happy and it was simple fun. It felt like a gift.
Bluestem Bar. Again, delicious.
After a leisurely afternoon I went home to be a Mom again. Greg brought a great after school treat for the kids so everyone was happy. The girls did fight after school and that really irritated me on my "special day." But I got over it as this is their normal routine after getting off the bus. I became happy again when Steve arrived home with sushi and french silk pie for dinner. So as you can see, my "birthday week" was wonderful and I still have some more celebrating to do yet! I was treated to bagels this morning, coffee tomorrow. I do have a life of leisure..ha. But seriously, I am so thankful to everyone for making my 30th so special! All of the phone calls, cards, messages, texts and emails have made me so happy. I promise I will stop talking about my birthday now I am a little old for this behavior, I sound attention starved don't I? Sorry.
Have a great night.
P.S. As I review this post…it seems a little "food focused" doesn't it? I will admit it, I am not that great of a cook and going out for food it a special treat that I don't do very often (until this week.)
