I'm sure none of you are shocked that Allison beat me to the punch with posting a recap of the festivities. You are probably also not shocked that she played photographer, so I don't really have any new and exciting pictures to share with you EXCEPT these 3 amazing pictures:
I was awakened on my birthday morning to find the above (ok actually I was awakened by babies crying at 2 and 6 am, but once I actually got the day started, this is what was there):
- 30 sunflowers
- 36 donut holes (he asked for 30, but they refused to do 2.5 dozen and made him get 3 dozen instead... why he didn't just eat 6 of them on his way back to the house is beyond me;)
- my gifts from Brian: a massage gift certificate to the same place I had my prenatal massage and a game called "Cards Against Humanity" that is supposed to be both highly entertaining and inappropriate
Later in the day, while doing a little shopping sans children, I picked up not one, but two birthday cake pops from Starbucks. Logic would say that I ate one and Allison ate the other, but logic would be wrong: I ate them both. Happily.
I got Allison a monogrammed iphone case for her birthday (pictured on her post), along with a $1 card with a picture of a cat on the front.
Allison got me a maxi dress, along with a card listing 30 of her favorite memories with me:
I'd say hers was slightly more thoughtful, but you be the judge.
I would re-type the list to share with you all, but they would all require explanations. And some of them are pretty embarrassing.
Anyway, it was a good birthday. A big thanks to Brian for spending so much time on solo daddy duty and giving me a few breaks, and a big thanks to everyone who helped make turning 30 special for me/us!
