Happy Birthday To Me

Cheers to 29 years!  Today I celebrate my birthday.  It is astounding the difference it the way I would choose to spend my day in comparison to eight years ago, when I celebrated my 21st and was served so many shots of alcohol that I spewed on my own lap at the bar where I worked.  Today I woke up with  husband and a son and all the responsibilites that go along with those things. I did, however, treat myself to a day off from work, which results in a long weekend for me..woohoo!  So how did I spend that day off from work?  Mostly, cleaning, grocery shopping, painting an old table, and the big treat, a nice long nap in the middle of the afternoon (Thanks Evan!) 

Gifts?  My mom bought me a sewing maching about two weeks ago, and I couldn't be happier with that gift.  My husband gave me a "Happy Birthday Honey" at midnight, which was adorable, and a card this morning, and as I mentioned earlier, my son gave me a nap.  And birthday dinner?  I wanted to spend some time with some loved ones, so instead of going to some restaurant and spending more money than anyone really wants to, I wanted to do my absolute favorite thing, and that is having a dinner party, and that is on the schedule for tomorrow.  For this evening, I will be hanging out with my son, probably eating left overs and going to be early. 

My how times have changed.
