Another Birthday! Mine.

March 27th... for the 34th time in my life. This birthday was fun and unique. Usually it seems we spend our birthdays with family. This year Alan and his Dad are working hard on finishing that new room upstairs in our home. I'm not one of those "let's just celebrate next week" kind-a people. It's gotta be on the day, or it just isn't the same. Ya know? So, while the boys were building, us girls were playing! Jodie came to spend the day with me. Olive Garden and Hobby Lobby! Doesn't get much better than that! Then Jen planned a fun birthday "party" for me. We had a craft night at my house... starting at 9:00pm once everyone's kids were in bed. Jen brought posh jewelry and cakes. Alan made us a couple pitchers of mojitos, and we crafted the night away. Erin and Traci sewed, Jen and Jodie and I bought paper, canvas, modge-podge and made ourselves some wall decor. Sarah and I also painted wine glasses. It was fun. And I ended the night making myself a fun pair of birthday flip-flops! Thanks Jen for the fun part-ay! And thanks girls for making it such a great birthday night. And thanks Jodie for coming to visit and hang out for the day.
Hmmmm. I suppose if I "celebrate" with my fam in a few days, I could get another day of cake and gifts. Sounds good to me after all! :)

ps. and thanks Alan for the mojitos! Yummmm!

Oh I had so much fun! I wish that we lived closer so we could do it more often! Doing something new was good for my craft brain. It needed to think outside of the box! Next time we do it though, I won't be so eager to "get ahead of the snowstorm"
