I think they had some good birthdays. As they are always filled with love and cake.
My friend Jennifer who just had multiple babies got me the cutest red picture frame and a decorative “M” houndstooth towel. I love friends because I have the best ones!! My sis got me a rocking Tervis Tumbler (You know how I love those!) and some money that she specified for my new camera strap from Phat Straps. Which will be here in a couple of weeks!
In other news, today is my 26th birfday. I am seriously having a HARD time getting older. I started crying the other night thinking about it. I just can’t handle it. I still feel 16 years old sometimes. How am I responsible for 2 children? Aren’t I am irresponsible teenager still?
Sunday night we celebrated my birthday with the McPhillips b/c they are going out of town for two weeks to the beach. Yes, I am jealous. We went to Stix and I had some delicious sushi. Jay, Joseph, and Tracie thought it would HIGHlarious to embarrass me with the people singing to me in Japanese and I was thoroughly embarrassed. Especially since I was standing up talking to them and they burst out laughing. I guess I know what it’s like to have brothers now! John and Linda got some running socks and a an awesomely awesome sports bra. Thanks for looking at the list, MeMac!
Last thought, I am thinking about doing a blog makeover and changing the name… what do you think of Houndstooth and High Heels? Yay or Nay?
So, hopefully, that will help you out in your shopping delemmas. I am not that hard to shop for.. just ask what I want!
Sunday was Addison’s 3rd birthday. We did a small family party for her with a “Strawberry Cupcake” A.K.A. Strawberry Shortcake theme. She loved it! I ran around on Friday getting the house cleaned and errands ran, because we left to go to Tuscaloosa for the weekend and I wanted to not have to worry about it on Sunday.
She was so proud to have everyone there and really enjoyed opening her presents. She would exclaim,” Look everybody!”. I thought I was going to die when we gave her her pink tricycle and she said, ” I’d rather have a green motorcycle.” You see, GiGi works for Regions Bank and they had a green tricycle in the branch and on Friday GiGi let her ride around on it. So.. there ya go.
Thank you to everyone who came. Addison enjoyed seeing you!
In completely unrelated news, my photography website and my photography blog are up and running! I am super pumped about it. I have been working on this for about 6 months and am extremely pleased! Feel free to check it out!
Today is a celebration of one of my favorite people. My Big Sis Sarah turns 31!! She is such an inspiration and a great mother to her two boys. We may have always had our Big Sis/Lil Sis moments, but all in all, she is the best sister I ever could have asked for. Here are some pics from over the years of the birthday girl!! We Love You, SaSa!! Hope you have a wonderful day!!
I don’t want you guys to be jealous but I am on my way to the beach. Right now. I am blogging from my iPhone. Man, I love technology. How did people live before the Internet?
So, yesterday was my (gasp!) 25th birthday. I have never understood the concept of people hating birthdays. What’s not to love? It’s a day entirely devoted to the celebration of you. It cannot get much better than that. But I am a bit of a narcissist. I had a girls lunch with mom, Sarah and both the girls. They were okay, all things considered. Afterwards, the girls took a nap and I packed everyone for the beach. I hope I remembered everything. I don’t like being solely responsible for packing 4 people for a week long trip. It’s a lot of pressure. It never fails, I always forget something.
Last night we went to see Dave Matthews Band. It was aweseome. I always love seeing him in concert. Jay got us our trips through the fan club and we were in the first tier row m. So, a big thank you to my wonderful brother in law, Jay. Even if he did forget it was my birthday. And of course, it wouldn’t be a proper DMB concert without the smell of marijuiana and vomit. And $9 beers.
I have pictures from the concert on my phone but I will have to figure out how to load them to blogger. I really hope that we have free Internet at the place we are staying. I really hate when you are already paying for a room and they want to charge you $20 a day for Internet. I could facebook and blog from my phone, but it’s so much better with an actual computer.
Oh well. We will have to see.
On a completely different note, baby Stellan is in surgery today, so please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. If you would like to read up on the whole story, check out MckMama’s blog at http://mycharmingkids.net
Have a wonderful Tuesday, peoples!
