I turned 36 today. I cannot believe I am closer to 40 than to 30. In my head, I feel like I am still in my 20's. My body, on the other hand, likes to regularly keep me in check by reminding me that I AM getting older. :)
Saturday, my parents were in town to pick up the boys for Spring Break. Lewis and I took advantage of the free babysitting and went out to celebrate my birthday a few days early. We went to Macaroni Joe's and had a lovely and leisurely meal. We hadn't been there since our last anniversary, which was two days before Bishop was born. Last time we were there, I was timing (painful!)contractions while we ate. He also surprised me with the newest iPhone and my favorite color (red) Otter Box Defender Case. I've been fighting a cold, so on Sunday, we sat in the back at church and then came home and watched movies and did ABSOLUTLEY nothing else since the boys were gone. It's been a LONG time since that happened.
Monday night, we went to The Big Texan for dinner since the birthday boy/girl get a free prime rib or chicken fried steak. Lewis took the prime rib and I opted for a ribeye. We've eaten well the last few days. :)
(I'd been crying over his generosity).
