Happy Birthday to Me!

"They say it's your birthday..."

Well, today it actually is my birthday! I'm having a fun day. I got to laze around in bed listening to the thunderstorm. Mark brought me breakfast in bed...that man can make a mean french toast (something I haven't been able to do, I must admit). We then rushed through the thunderstorm to get to the dentist for Zoe, Ace, and Liam. Then back home for school, lunch and now the kids and Mark are making my cake. I feel thoroughly pampered. However, this afternoon Zoe and I are going on a little shopping trip since tonight she'll be attending a friend's birthday party. And then to supper with a couple of friends and who knows what else we'll do. Mark had planned a manicure for tonight, but after talking to him, we canceled it. The last thing I wanted to do was rush through and not spend time with my family.

Last weekend, we celebrated with my parents. That was a lot of fun and besides the best gift certificate in the world (to Micheal's of course), I also got these dishes from my parents. I am now almost completely teflon/aluminum free and "large" family ready.

Mark got me my much needed apron...my belly is always covered in flour when I bake and I'm tired of splashing stuff all over my clothes. Now I'll be clean and in style thanks to Lisa and Holly! It says "Abbie, head chef!" And it's a pretty pink and brown.

Oh yeah, I'm blessed!!


  1. Happy Birthday Abbie!! You'll have to post a pic of you in your apron!!

  2. Yea! I'm glad you loved the apron! It sounds like you are having a great day and I'm so glad. You are much deserving of a day of pampering and it sounds like your husband is just great at that job. Have a great weekend!
