Today is my birthday.

I love birthdays! How could one NOT like a day totally centered around ME??? :) Although I am dreading this whole new OLD chapter of my life, I especially love my birthday this year for a few reasons:

1 -- This is my birthday present to me:

Hooray new cars! Happy birthday, me!


2. Josh may or may not push me down the stairs for posting this, but it makes me happy. Last week Josh had knee surgery (again). This picture, however, tells a different story -- that he actually got surgery to become a lunch lady. I look at this picture every day and laugh. So I am posting it for everyone else's enjoyment, and that is a good birthday present to myself.


3-- We are going to the BEACH on Monday for an entire week!!! This is the best birthday/ anniversary present ever. My only wish is that my baby tummy would look more like a preggo belly and less like a spare tire. Come on, kid, can't you be a little more round or something in there??? I do hope no one mistakes me for a beached whale and tries to throw me back in the ocean.

Oh, yes, by the way, it was our 3-year anniversary on the 18th. I did not post some mushy anniversary post for the sole reason that I want to have a 4 and 5-year anniversary and did not want to upset Josh with my mushiness. But it's been a good three years. Really good.

There are many other reasons why I love birthdays, most of which have to do with my AWESOME family and friends!!! Thanks everyone for your wishes and love!

VERY exciting-- happy birthday. on a sadder note? that icky phase lingers longer than others told me. i'm still STUCK at that spare tire phase... big enough to look big and for nothing to fit, but small enough that people feel the need to say, "oh! you don't look too big!" thanks.
enjoy the beach!

Yes, like I said before, you have been blessed with the gift of flatulence. Seeing that picture of Josh is making me sing about Navy Beans.

I cannot stop laughing about the lunch lady thing!! Ah ha ha ha ha! Happy birthday cutie! I am so jealous that you get to go relax on the beach for a week! I'm sure you're still as tiny as ever, but I do remember the awkward stages of pregnancy. Fun stuff. Just so you know, I gained a good 50 lbs during my pregnancy, not so fun afterward. Have a wonderful week!
