I'm 29 today!

29 again! Who cares if it is for the 3rd time?

It's been a great birthday so far.

It began by Jerry getting up with Jade when her monitor started going off at 6:45 this morning. Lily went off just a few minutes later. I didn't know that though because both monitors were off and I was closed in a quiet, dark room. I love that man.

When I did fumble down the stairs way after 8 o'clock, I was greeted by my hubby and two chipper girls. It was apparent that they had been talking full speed the entire time I had been snoozing. There were cards with beautiful touches of marker and a box full of Dunkin Donuts. And a candle in one for me, followed by a sweet serenade by my three favorite people. I will never forget the sight of Jade with one donut hole in each of her fists. She is definitely a double fisted eater. Her expression was somewhere between..."sugar, oh the sugar!" and "donuts, where have you been the last 13 months, 10 days and 9 hours of my life?"...it was priceless.

And Lily...she just ate the frosting off of two of them...a girl after my own heart. Who needs the extra bread carbs from the donut!?! Frosting only please.

Then we met my dad, NeNe, my sis and niece for a late morning meeting of Papa's Pack. If you have no idea what Papa's Pack is, you can click here and here.

My mom offered several weeks ago to babysit for us tonight. Her e-mail said she would babysit from 4PM til whenever. Jerry took the "whenever" literally and quickly emailed back that we would be checking on how far our frequent flyer miles could get us. She replied inquiring for our regular sitter's phone number.

Anyway, she got here about 3:30 and we spent the first hour of her visit taking a nap. I know. We are such exciting people.

I'm trying to decide if we should spend the evening at a romantic non-child-friendly restaurant and then a movie, or at a my favorite greasy mexican joint and then Six Flags over Texas. I haven't been there in ages and it just sounds fun. One of my best buds mentioned there'd be lots of screaming kids there. As long as they aren't mine, I don't care. But with my "ankle splints", I don't know if trekking all over an amusement park would be a good idea.

Then again I have a long list of errands and shopping I'd love to run around and do with Jerry tonight. Doesn't that sound like birthday bliss? Again. Yes, I am certified crazy. It is tax-free weekend here in Texas though, and you wouldn't believe how saving that 8.25% brings people out. In droves.

We're heading out though...and the possibilities...are endless.

I think we'll head downstairs with some suitcases and hand my mom a flight itinerary. That might give her a heart attack though. And then we wouldn't have a babysitter for tonight.

Enough about my weekend plans, what do you have going on?

I'll be back tomorrow with more birthday celebratory news and maybe even pics. Because I know the only reason you read this blog is for things of this nature.

I just know it.

Hey, Happy Birthday!
Can't wait to hear about it :)

We were swimming at my brother's today. Fun except for my 9-year-old son being picked on by cousins. He's a tough kid but I wanted to kick some be-hind anyway.
