My birthday weekend was fantastic.
Gabriel and Michael finished recovering from the latest Evil Cold to hit our family, and we spent a lot of quality time together. We didn’t have a party or do anything exciting for my birthday this year, but for some reason it was really the best birthday I’ve had in recent memory.
We hit the pool, washed our car together, went shopping with a little birthday money from my parents, bought a new TV (our old one has been deceased for two weeks) had friends over for dinner and games, got our wedding rings cleaned, and slept in (well I did, at least) and ate very well all weekend.
We went swimming with Peter, Kristin and baby Audrey Fontana on Saturday afternoon. Gabriel LOVED the lily pad floatie toy the Fontanas brought!
Michael baked and decorated my cake all by himself. The “24” is made out of dark chocolate pieces.
My spiffy new Steve Madden birthday sandals – thanks Mom 🙂
I picked out this wrought iron and rose swag for my mantlepiece (thanks Mom, again:)
I know the picture is dark, but this is the swag hung up on the mantle. It matches the curtains the previous owners left, which is nice! I had wanted to buy/make new curtains for my living room, but when the realized how much fabric costs, I knew I’d have to stick with these for a while!
This is the cutest AND happiest baby on the block!
On Sunday morning, Michael surprised me with flowers and a hot breakfast of biscuits (big fat hot ones), bacon (the maple kind) and OJ (the good kind–not the cheap stuff). He’s a keeper!
