I turned 34 over the weekend.
Mercy, how did that happen?
When Luke was born, 6 years ago, I had a friend who was 34. I was a youthful 28 and remember referring to my 34 year old friend as, "older." I think the sentence went something like this: "That's Elvira," then in hushed tones, "she's older."
And now I have arrived.
It was a good little birthday. Worked out at CrossFit and it was a tough one! Whew. Reminded me that I am in way better shape now than I ever was at my youthful 28. Makes me excited about the future.
Anyway, after my workout I came home to banners all over the house made by my man and my little people. Super cute! Then the kids wanted to take me out to eat for my birthday. At their favorite restaurant..Cici's Pizza.
Notice we eat at their favorite restaurant on my birthday. Oh, to be a mama.
After that we came home and J put the girls down for nap and took the boys out for the afternoon, so I could be in silence. Mmmmmm, silence. That, alone, is a gift to a mama - can I get an amen!
Then we went out with 3 other couples for a very yummy dinner. Wine, fish, bread, dessert...YUM! A very welcomed change to my very boring diet!
I think it's time for a picture around here.
