happy birthday to me!

My sweet husband was very good to me for my birthday this year...

He made a reservation for Friday night at a fancy hotel and arranged for my mom to come down and stay with the kids.

See how fancy?
He even requested extra feather pillows. We were surrounded by pillows!

12th floor with a very pretty view.

Dinner... my choice. (Carlos O'Kelleys... we used to go here all the time in college.)
A movie... my choice. (Juno... I bought the soundtrack the next day.)

We slept in late and after he was ready, Corey left and let me have the hotel room to myself for awhile! He knows me well and knew I would love that! He came back for a few minutes to bring me a Sunrise Smoothie and something to snack on. So sweet.

A little shopping at my favorite store... a late lunch at my favorite place... browsing at the bookstore... happy conversation with a friend that we ran into... and while he ran to Lowe's to check out a few patio things, he dropped me off here...

I love Michaels. I could spend hours in there.
When he called to tell me he was coming back to pick me up I had only been down 5 aisles.
I ran to the $1 section, even though I probably shouldn't have. I can always find lots of things there... and only $1! Who can pass that up?!

We came home to huge hugs and kisses from happy kids... always love that!
And this...

Thanks, Mom! You're the best!

This cake had lots of frosting... grandma had lots of help!
I kept sneaking in the kitchen before supper to steal licks of frosting.
So yummy!

Thanks Corey and Mom for a wonderful birthday!
I'm a spoiled girl.

Amy - Sounds like you had a wonderful birthday! Thought about you yesterday and hoped your "31" was great. I also remembered that last year it snowed on your B-day. Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY (a day late)!! Hope you all are doing good. We'll have to have get together sometime. There's lots of changes going on in our lives, and I'm sure the same is true for you. Growing kids and so much more!
Your Friend,
