Wonderful Day

What a day!! Today I turned 34...not a big birthday...but an absolute wonderful one! It started off with Lee helping me get the kids up and going so that I could take a shower and get dressed by MYSELF!! You other moms know what a blessing that is! :) Then Amy J and Mary brought me breakfast and visited for a couple hours. I have been friends with Amy since the 8th grade and Mary since the 10th grade...nothing like old friends!
I then headed to the movies to see Eat, Pray, Love with Melinda. YES, you read that right...movies...in the middle of the day!! What a treat! Thanks to Mary who took both of my sweet kids to her house for the afternoon. Melinda and I started this tradition last year. We never get out to see movies so we give that to each other on our birthdays. Movie, popcorn, candy...it is SO nice!
I raced to Mary's to pick up the kids...then ran back home to get them packed for a night at Capt and Gigi's. Lee met us at home and we headed to Monroe...mom and dad kept the kids while we had dinner out. Steak and shrimp for me at Longhorns...YUM! Then my dad made his infamous blackberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream.

There were no big gifts (unless you count my used Treadmill that I NEEDED) and no big parties...just a wonderful sweet day with my best friends and family. It was just what I needed! Here are a couple pictures of my family...I want to remember being 34 and being a mama to these sweet babies. They are my life and I am so grateful that I was chosen to be their mom. I am extremely blessed and so thankful for my 34 years! Hears to the next 34!!
