My Golden Birthday

This year was my golden birthday (when your birthdate and age are the same). Had I still been in Phoenix, I would have thrown a big party. But instead, we just celebrated as a family. We went shopping at a huge mall, where I found 2 skirts at Burlington Coat Factory and a makeup promo for what I wanted at Bare Minerals. And earlier this month I bought myself a double jogging stroller, which Justin is putting together right now.

Justin wore Gabe so I could try on clothes.

Once home we had delicious red velvet cupcakes from Justin's work, and a friend from church brought me a homemade carrot cake. She didn't even know it's my favorite!

We watched Letters to Juliet and later had dinner at a little Italian restaurant I discovered at a local event when we first moved here. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Except Gabe, who only had pureed peas.

It was a simple but pleasant birthday. I just can't believe how old I'm getting!



I never knew about this "golden birthday" thing and I missed mine last year. Oh well.

27 is not old dear Cheski. We are almost entering our 30's, which I believe will be phenomenal. I actually think our 40s will be even better, as long as our TEENAGE children are as well behaved as we were.

I do know what people mean when they say we're getting old. But, would you really want to be 21 again?? Maybe 25? I could see that. 25 was a good age. Ok - end rant.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY - it sounds wonderful!!! How sweet that you were brought that beautifully decorated and delicious looking cake.

You look healthy and beautiful. Your new kitchen also looks nice!
