This week was definitely a good one! I started out completely exhausted (these run-around weekends are a bit much for me these days) but was definitely recovered in time to start celebrating my birthday! I turned 30 on Thursday but celebrations started on Wednesday when my sister and mom came up for a pool day with balloons, dessert and fun gifts! Thursday morning was so nice because Matt stayed home for a bit with enough time to make us pancakes and go for a walk. My afternoon included a pedicure, errands and resting up for an awesome dinner. And even though it is somewhat amusing to see the random people that come out of the woodwork to wish you a happy birthday on Facebook, I must admit, those birthday notes definitely made me feel special. If only Facebook didn’t make it so challenging for you to scroll through the posts on your own wall.
Now I’m in the Hamptons for the weekend with our family for relaxing and more celebrating. Gotta love a week-long birthday fest! I’m soaking up every minute of it while wondering/imagining what it will be like when next year includes a new addition. Oh, and in case you missed it, I celebrated here on the blog this week with ice cream… and more ice cream!
