Today, I am a quarter of a century old.
Half-way to 50.
Half-way between 20 and 30
I’m not saying that it sounds old, but it sure sounds a lot older than 24!
I had a wonderful “Birthday Weekend.”
On Friday, Brian and I went out on a date. We decided to do a “progressive dinner” of sorts, visiting different restaurants just to try out one thing, and then moving on.
We ended up hitting 5 different restaurants, splitting a piece of pizza, getting some coffee, sharing some Thai food, checking out a french cafe (wine and cheese for him, chocolate mousse for me), and finishing up with pastries and tea at a coffee house.
We had SO much fun, and it was really nice to be able to try a bunch of places, since we don’t go out very often!
Thanks TREX Mom for watching him! You can see some pictures of Joseph playing at his friends house here!
Then, on Saturday night, we went to the Botanical Gardens’ festival of lights. It was beautiful!
Joseph especially liked ringing the big bell that they have there.
And staring from afar at the
the man-in-a-costume polar bear.
Brian got me a beautiful pearl necklace, which I wore all weekend- even with my sweatpants!
Top that off with getting to sleep in both mornings, and a trip to DQ, and what more could a gal want?!
Today, on my actual birthday, it is back to the real world. Errands, poopy diapers, and a two year old.
Although, I did get to shave my legs.
And have lunch at Red Robin with my favorite little guy, who was an ANGEL, believe it or not.
Here’s to another year of love, laughter, and kids.
