A birthday of firsts...

So last week I turned 34. All throughout my birthday I kept thinking, "I've never done this on my birthday before."

This was the first birthday that I:
  • took delight in 'sleeping in' until 7 a.m.
  • sat in the bathroom drinking my Caribou for 5 minutes of me time (while Samuel banged on the door yelling "Mo-meeeee" :)
  • nursed a baby
  • danced around the house to Footloose with my son
  • went out to lunch with my husband and read more than talked
  • picked up photos of my two precious children
  • blew out my birthday candles with the help of my 18-month old
  • got a birthday card that was inscribed "To: Mom   Love, Samuel and Lauren"
So here's to 34....may this year continue to be filled with many many firsts!

That sounds like a good birthday... even if you have consider 7:00am as sleeping in!

The birthday day inscription, almost made me cry. That is just too sweet.
