Birthday Weekend Extravaganza

4.20.2014
I have an important message for you today.

Have a birthday weekend/week instead of just a birthday day. You feel so much more spoiled!

Friday

›› Off to get a mani & pedi! I can't tell you how long it's been since I've gotten one and it was absolutely perfect.

›› Afterwards I decided to rent a chick-flick (About Time, it was fabulous!). I came home, curled up on the couch with some vino and my pups then proceed to not move for hours to come. It was fabulous.
 
›› Later on Jon came home and surprised me by telling me to get ready for a date night. He swept me away to our favorite sushi place with the best martini's! I have such a catch.

Saturday

›› I slept in yet again. (Seriously I might could get used to that).

›› I spent the entire day redecorating, moving furtinture, DIYing, responding to the occasional email and cleaning up the house. This doesn't sound special, but to me just getting some quiet time to work around my house means the world to me. #itsthelittlethings.

›› Later in the evening Jon and I headed downtown for the classic car show, which only happens in the Summer. It's so quaint.

Sunday

›› Obvi we had a glorious Easter Sunday service where my heart was filled with joy.

›› After we headed to the lake for my birthday lunch. My mother-in-law goes all out in the food department and you will never hear me complain. She made her famous Bovarian Torte which is to die for.

 
And that concludes my birthday weekend extravaganza. Now comes birthday week ;-)
 
Getting older isn't all that bad.
