Today, made possible by my mother – thanks for pushing me out. I appreciate it.
I do appreciate it, because, if she didn’t – how would you get these adorable girls?
My hubby took me to The Kitchen last week – reservations are tough to come by – but we were able to get a prime spot, front-and-center at the counter. (I’ll do a review next week)
The girls greeted me with:
6YO: It’s your birthday mom. I think it would be fun if you listened to us.
4YO: It would be our pleasure!
We then spent the day with my lovely friend Ruby at The Fountains in Roseville, where the girls splashed in their little water area, hit the farmer’s market, had lunch, visited Nordstrom Rack and on the drive home they both fell asleep. Which, was like another gift in and of itself. I put them in bed when we got home and had a few blissful moments of solitude.
It’s funny, I always think they’ll be worn out after a day spent swimming, but they are never wiped out, I am. I take them shopping and both of them konk out, but I’m full of energy. I think I have figured it out. Ha!
We wanted to go see the Winnie the Pooh movie as a family last night, but movie showings end early for that movie in my neck-o-the-woods. So we just visited my favorite Thai place.
I have to say, this world of social media makes me grateful. Birthdays are one way to quickly reconnect and take the time to say hello to friends in our lives. I am thankful for everyone who took a moment to say hello to me.
It’s weird, this consistent march of time. I know the calendar says I’m aging – I’m now 34 – but I don’t feel it. Not one bit. Well, with the exception of dancing at the clubs and my knees start aching. I had some college friends over recently and we all commented on how our days together seem just like yesterday. I think aging is a state of mind. I am committing to never grow up. Deal with it. heheh
