Happy Birthday to ME!!

Yes...that's right, today is my BIRTHDAY! I am now on my downhill slide to 4-0! OH MY GOSH!! I am actually 36 today, but 40 is going be here before I know it! Since my birthday is on a Monday and BOTH boys have baseball games (same time, different fields) we celebrated this past weekend!

Our Saturday started out with baseball pictures for both boys and then home to change quick and head to football registration! That's right, we are not even done with one sport before the next sign up...lucky me (the foreshadow of what is to come!) We stopped for gas and this was my hubby playing around with my camera!

On our way home from football registration, we stopped here for lunch...YUMMY!

I had the chicken parmesan...and the best part is, I have lunch for today! After stuffing ourselves, we came home and chilled out until late afternoon when my parents came over to help celebrate! I was able to open my presents before heading out to eat again, this time at Red Robin, another YUMMY!

Opening presents from my parents
They got me this really awesome cross made from nails that has a crown of thorns in the middle of it! I love it! I collect crosses and can't wait to find the perfect place to hang it up.
Thanks Mom and Dad! (for the present, bday $$ and dinner!)


So after opening presents, we headed here for more eats! I had my usual...just-in-quesadilla with no tomatoes! They sang to me too!

Then we came home and went to bed and got up and went here for breakfast before church...can I get another YUMMY!! The boys and I had the waffle with fresh strawberries! Our friend Roger is the general manager, so this meal was on him for my birthday; Thanks Rog!

After church, we got a car wash and stopped at Target to do some shopping and then headed here with friends for yet another meal! This was a SERIOUS YUMMY!! This was the first time was have ever eaten there and boy was I impressed! I had coconut shrimp and they sang to me too!

So on the day of my REAL birthday, all of the teachers in the district have a professional development day, which means there are no students, but lots of boring meetings! And then both boys have baseball games, same time, different fields! Such is life...it does not stop just because I am turning 36!
