I got a year older on Friday. And I was sound asleep at 12:40 am when a voice said, "Happy Birthday Mom!" Not a voice that should have been at my house in the middle of the night. K drove home from school to spend the weekend with me on my birthday! What a fun surprise. She didn't even tell G until Wed. Hence the second surprise was already planned. But it was fun to have her for a few days, and a great surprise.
So a few weeks ago I not so subltly asked G if he would have my birthday off. (He gets every other Friday off, so it could be easily arranges.) He asked what I wanted and I said to be with him, and a pair of toms. So a few days before my birthday, I asked him what we were going to do and he said "go to Reno and buy you a pretty dress." He may have heard me lament on any given Sunday about my lack of dresses. Anyway, that is all he would tell me, the rest was a surprise.
We found a really cute dress, that is not for winter, so until it warms up, it will stay in the closet. Then he told me I would also need to buy a swimsuit. Done. Then he took me to a spa for the afternoon. We had a great time, after the frustration part,(a story for another day) a fun dinner with seafood, and lots of yummy dessert. It was such fun to be pampered. Okay, I admit, I am pampered lots, but just so you know, I really like it. Isn't he the nicest husband ever! A dress, a day at the spa, and a pair of toms. Thanks G, I love you!
I also had a delicious torte cake with mousse like frosting the girls made, and flowers from the other kids. Don't I have the best family!
Thanks to everyone for making the day wonderful!
Note to self: Everyone should feel this spoiled on their birthday. I didn't want the day to end.
