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!
