Happy Birthday to Me, Happy Birthday to Me, Happy Birthday dear SARAH....Happy Birthday to Me!

One thing about me.....I love Birthdays. I am Especially fond of MY Birthday. Yes...the day I graced this world with my presence.....blah, blah, blah. :) Turns out today is my special day. I am now a whopping 27 years old! This ALMOST qualifies me as an old fart.

But seriously, today was a pretty great day. I woke up to my wonderful husband making me some of THESE for Breakfast.

Then we opened presents. I was so surprised! First, I opened this....

Mike asked me what I wanted for my Birthday a few weeks ago, and I "casually" mentioned the new photoshop software. Well, Mike thought it was crazy they are already on version 6, when I bought version 3 like...2 years ago. Needless to say, he wasn't thrilled about the idea of me getting this. So, I just forgot about it.

What a good husband!! He not only surprised me by getting me the scrapbooking software I wanted, he also surprised me with this....

We saw the movie when it came out, and I just LOVED it. I remember now saying "I should get this sound track". sweet husband remembered this too, and bought it for me. He smiled when I openend it and said "I know how much you love your show-tunes."

Yes....I DO love my show-tunes. Thanks sweetie!

He also surprised me with one of those back and neck massager thingies you can put on your chair. He said so when I was up with Miles at night to feed him, atleast I could get a massage at the same time. THEN he pointed out I could also use my new software to scrapbook, while I listened to this fun soundtrack AND got a massage. ALL at the same time. What a thoughtful guy. I know....I"m pretty lucky.

Then, if all that wasn't enough, Mike stayed home with Miles for a little while so I could go "out". Where did I go? To the gym of course! :) And yes, I was actually very excited about it. Today was my first day back at the gym after the arrival of our Miles, and it felt GREAT! Now, I am starting out slow, since any REAL physical activity has been basically non-existant for almost a year. But I picked up a schedule of their classes. And the best part is that Miles can start using their on-sight day-care next month! Wahoo! So I can get out every morning and do my work-out, and Miles can stay in the day care for an hour or so while I do it. PERFECT!

And if all that wasn't enought, I went to Olive Garden for my birthday lunch. I am a creature of habit, and so I ordered what I always do. Soup, Salad, and breadsticks. Love it. Then I came home and Mike watched Miles while I took a nap. Yes, you heard me right. A Nap. I actually got to take a nap.

Now, I am going to watch Ugly Betty and Grey's Anatomy, and then go to bed.

A Perfect end to a Perfect day. Thanks again to Mike for making it that way. LOVE YOU!


  1. Sounds like you had a pretty good day. By the way Happy Birthday. Of course you didn't think I would forget your birthday. I use to always be Jealous that you were older than me but it is nice that you are older than me now!! Sounds like you had a great day!

  2. Wow...that boy has a GIFT for picking out birthday gifts! How fun! Happy birthday!

  3. Glad to hear your birthday was fun and that you got the software you wanted. Are you sure you are only 27, I could have sworn you were turning 28 :) heehee!

  4. I literally cried the day you were born!! I was very pregnant with Darcey and she was supposed to be born before you, but you just couldn't wait. I was so jealous that you were here and Darcey wasn't. It's hard for me to believe that you 2 will be 27 this November. Where does the time go. Hope you had a great day!! Aunt LeeAnn

  5. Happy birthday!! I'm glad to hear you had a great day and what a thoughtful husband you snagged. Glad to hear things are going well. I can't believe how old we are getting. It seems like we just graduated from high school.

  6. Happy Birthday. Hey I was wondering are you guys going to be in Evanston for Thanksgiving? I have a baby gift for you. :)

  7. We are actually going to be in St. George for Thanksgiving. It is kind of starting to be a tradition to meet there for the Holiday. But we will be in town for Christmas. Infact, we are going to have Miles' baby blessing the Sunday before Christmas.
