Thanks Everyone

Thank you so much for wishing me a happy birthday-it really made my day.  Alright so here's the low down on how my day went.  Started off with David having to go to work-sucked, but the kids and I went to church and it was a really good service.  Then afterwards the in-laws and my little clan went to a Mexican restaurant-mmm delicious.  Of course after all that you know I came home and took a nap.  Oh I almost forgot Amy's birthday (David's cousin) is the same day as mine and we all celebrated that night.  My mil made Paul Dean's homemade chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, and biscuits; all topped off with a German chocolate cake.  It was my request and man was it good.

Now on to the gifts--my fil took Sweet Pea to pick out a card and a gift and I couldn't wait to open it.  The card had Princess Aurora on it and then in the inside she asked him to write "Mommy I love you and I want to say happy birthday.  One more thing I wanted to tell you, you're the best!"  Then at the bottom he wrote "I wanted to buy you a book Mommy because I know you like to read."  Isn't that just sweet, I mean this is stuff she says to me but her making sure her Grumps wrote it in a card was so precious that it brought tears to my eyes.  As for the book it's called Desiderata, it's a poem and on one page a verse is highlighted and the other page has pictures of babies. 

As for gifts I got some money and some gift cards and yesterday I went and bought me my first "designer" purse.  It's not any of the ones I posted and the Coach one I really wanted was gone and apparently they no longer make it because it's off their website.  That sucked but I did find a purse I really like it, and it'll go with anything.  There's a picture of the purse I got and the color I chose it the brown one in the front.

Welcome to the designer purse world. You'll never look at purses the same way again! It's like going from a Ford Escort to a Cadillac!
I'm glad your birthday was great. I think we forget to make our own great after we have kids. I'm glad you enjoyed yours!
