But I am here today to catch up with everyone and see how goes it.
I am 31 years and one day old today. Yesterday was my birthday. 31. How does that happen so fast? I can still remember my 16th birthday and my 21st birthday like they were yesterday.
Anyway, I didn't do much. I didn't feel like making a big deal out of it. Last year, for my 30th, the Fella took me to New Orleans. Upon our arrival, I was surprised to find that he had rented a house and six of my besties were there to celebrate with me. Best birthday ever. I had a blast "Roaring out of My 20's.
So this year, I was content to lay low.
Friday, I received this pretty package in the mail to kick start the bday weekend...
Saturday was BEAUTIFUL. 82 degrees. So we took advantage of it and got some projects done. I did some painting...
Before, primed, complete (sans recovered seats):
Please ignore the state of the garage. We plan to do some Spring cleaning in there soon. This table has been in the Fella's family for a long time and he really wanted to keep it but it was in bad shape. It is amazing what a little sanding and a coat of paint can do...
On Sunday I woke up to a card, flowers and a room full of balloons.
Peanut then showed up bearing gifts....
And mustaches....lots and lots of mustaches...
Look at this adorable "donut" cake she made me!
I couldn't be bothered with plates and fancy things like that...I just jumped right in.
She and the Fella then took me to brunch. It may have been a beautiful 82 degrees on Saturday, but on Sunday it dropped into the 20s and snowed!!! Gross. So for the rest of the day, the Fella and I snoozed on the couch, caught up on the DVR and watched the Oscars.
A nice, relaxing weekend. I couldn't ask for more for this ol' 31 year old.
Speaking of the Oscars...oh my geeze amiright???
She's back and older than ever,
