all in lowercase because hitting that shift key just isn’t happening when you are holding a sleeping 2 year old…
yesterday was my 31st birthday. it was pretty great.
i got to start my day off by going to the dmv to renew my driver’s license. i was there for 8 minutes. that is what you get when you make an appointment.
i was later whisked away by by bf to lunch at olive garden and then to get some essentials at ulta. my skin has been funky, i would like to blame it all on age, but then again, i am pretty funky, so it might just be me after all.
i missed my dad coming up for a surprise visit, and when i say missed, i really really missed that. i love time with my dad. lately it’s been phone conversations all about camera stuff. i just love him…
we managed to get the girls favorite babysitter, second favorite to be exact. grammie is still number one. merrill and i went out to dinner with our good friends to mcgrath’s. it is no coincidence that crab celebration always takes place over my birthday. we came back to our house and enjoyed some birthday cake. i made my own, cause again, that is just how it is. i will have to share that recipe on the craft blog.. quite refreshing.
merrill’s parents and youngest sister dropped in too.
i capped-off my night by going and playing basketball with other women in our stake. it is always fun, always kicks my butt. couldn’t tell you how long it’s been since i’ve played a full-court game of basketball, so these last few weeks have really been fun and tiring. after all the eating and celebrating i did yesterday, i told myself that i needed to be one of the first down at the other end of the court after that ball is re-bounded. i have the blisters to prove just how much running i did.
it was really a great day. i had many friends wishing my a happy birthday on facebook, in emails, text messages, and those fun surprise visits.
i truly am blessed and surrounded by the best!
