Pic of the day


Happy Monday friends!  Here is my pic of the day - Kenny and the girls icing my birthday cake.  They look so determined don't they!?  We take our cake icing pretty serious around here.  :)  I'm 36 years old today (cough/choke!).  Addison told me this morning I don't look 36.  I asked her how old I looked and then quickly followed it up with "think very carefully before you answer that question."  She took a minute and then responded with "21."  Good girl.  Best present of the day.

We celebrated over the weekend.  Shopping and a date night with Kenny (he was such a good sport - hates shopping but knows I love it) and dinner at the beach with friends from out of town.  I have a date with girl friends on the horizon and one with Ad's teacher for parent teacher conferences this afternoon.  I had a hot date this morning with Kole and the laundry.  :)

So happy for one more great year.  So grateful for wonderful friends in my life.  Love to you all today!!

Happy Birthday, Erin! Mine was yesterday! As a busy mom with two girls (ages 3 & 5), I love reading your blog to see what you're up to. We built our house and moved in a month ago, so I can relate to all of your exciting (and stressful) house updates! Sounds like you had a great weekend. Best wishes for another year filled with many more happy memories:) -Amanda-Townsend, De

Happy Birthday Erin, sounds like you've had a great day surrounded by love and special treats. The selfless gestures always mean so much more than mass-produced gifts, don't they? I mean, there's room in my life for both ;o) haha but the gestures always give you those little butterflies! So how sweet of Kenny to make you a cake with the girls and take you shopping. Oh and there's no shame in turning 36 when you look as good (and live as vivaciously) as you do!!
