Celebrating My Birthday

Last week I turned 33! Yikes!  That sounds old.  But I am happy with where I am in my life, and definitely have an exciting year coming up!  . This year has had ups and downs, like all years, but all in all it was a pretty good one! Instead of waiting until New Years to make resolutions, I figured I would start now. After reflecting on the past year, I have a few goals in mind for 33.  I want to try to stop worrying so much about what others think of me.  I will never be able to make everyone in my life happy.  I try my best to be a good, loving person, and that is all I can do.  I also want to try to let go of my Type A tendencies as much as possible.  I will basically never finish my to-do list, will never have a completely clean and neat home, and that’s okay.  I want to enjoy my life and not be so hung up on perfection in general.  Hopefully I can accomplish some of these goals!

My birthday was a good one this year!  It was a school day, and my kids knew it was my birthday, so they were really funny about it.  They were also extra wild, which made it a little more challenging.  :)  My mom came down and we went to dinner with Jim. We went to Due Lire.  We had calamari, and I had short rib ravioli.  Both were excellent!  I decided to leave my camera in my purse and just enjoy the dinner.  After that, we had apple pie that Jim bought.  He also got me beautiful flowers and a Tory Burch Fit Bit bracelet!  I love it!  I love wearing my Fit Bit but hated the ugly gray holder, so this is perfect.  It feels more like a piece of jewelry than a fitness tracker now. 

 Friday night we went to Paris Club for a nice French dinner.  We had escargot as an appetizer.  I ordered steak frites and Jim had duck.  He finished his meal with a bourbon drink that looked amazing! The service and food were excellent.  Our reservation was at 6:30 and we were heading home when most people are just heading out.  Pregnant life!  


I was showered with treats and flowers galore from my family! All in all it was a great birthday and I felt very loved!
