Monday was my 28th birthday and I've been thoroughly soaking in all the birthday spoils (which means I've basically been a bump on a log. because it's acceptable to let go of all my responsibilities in the name of birthday celebrating, right?!) I know 28 isn't old, and I certainly don't feel old, but when I say it out loud? I sound old, ha ha! When did I become this "old" 28 year old with a husband, two kids and adult responsibilities?! Truth be told, I wouldn't have it any other way. I feel extremely blessed to live the life I have, despite it's ups AND downs... I wouldn't change a thing!
Eric celebrated (yes, I say Eric) my birthday weekend by getting his motorcycle license. Next step? Getting an actual motorcycle. I can't say that I'm jumping for joy over his latest obsession/hobby. But I am glad that he was able to have some time to do something that he's been wanting to do for a long time! We had friends over on Saturday and Sunday and ate so much good food including a chocolate fountain (have you ever dipped classic potato chips in chocolate?! Oh my gosh! Yum!) and apple crack. Birthday weekend was not kind to my diet, ya'll. I mean, not that I'm on a diet (unless you call "gimme all the foods" a diet. I blame nursing) but if I was on a diet, I would have failed miserably! It was so nice to enjoy a weekend of crossing items off the bucket list, relaxing, hanging out with friends, etc. A lot of the little things that we no longer take for granted with Eric's crazy work schedule these past years!
On my actual birthday I started the morning at spin class. I didn't regret not spending all morning in bed and being doted on until this morning, when there was no husband to take charge, and the kids were up at the crack of dawn, as well as throughout the night, ha! But it did feel good to be spinning again! Next we undid my whole workout at the Cheesecake Factory... totally worth it! When we got our slice of cheesecake Mia got SO excited and said, "yaaaaay! It's mommy's birthday party!" ha ha! She loved celebrating my birthday (and didn't get jealous at all that it wasn't her birthday!) After lunch Mia took a nap, I cuddled my sleeping James and watched a couple shows on netflix. It's the little things, people! After dinner we got to enjoy what I look forward to each year... my birthday cake! Eric makes me the better than... "anything" (ha!) cake, it's my favorite! Mia was so excited to sing Happy Birthday to me, told me I was the best mom ever and was just the sweetest 3 year old! I'm one lucky momma! My birthday was super low key and relaxing but was filled with so much love from my little family, happy/loving birthday messages throughout the day from friends and family and really was just the best day! It was perfect!
