I had a spectacular birthday... Barrett went all out and surprised me (I never do surprises, not my thing) and it was awesome. Friday after work I thought we were heading to grab Strabucks before softball, when suddenly he pulls into the massge place. He booked me an hour long massage and dropped me off for a relaing and blissful treat. After he picked me up, we went home and I walked in to a beautifully decorated house and a yell of "surprise" and a bunch of our friends jumping up. I was totally caught off guard and loved it. During my hour of relaxation blissdom, they were bus turning my house into a party zone. We had a great night and I felt so blessed to have such a thoughful man in my life to coordinate a surprise party. I am so grateful for all the friends I have in my life who made it a success and a fun filled night!
I got flowers, balloons, sweet treats, gift cards, the coolest shot glass ever (Danielle is the most kick ass birthday gift shopper), books, jewlery, new Birks (my Mom rocks) and Bear had his friend throw me a bowl on his pottery wheel and then B painted it. Such thoughful, personal, caring gifts. I am beyond humbled! We went out with my parents on Saturday to The Lost Dog (one of my favorite local places) and had dinner and cocktails. It was a wonderful birthday weekend full of friends, laughs, good times, good food, and great memories.
My plan for this weekend is to get some reading done, finish a few reviews, join up and plan for Bout of Books that starts next week, and to spend time with my family.
What are your plans? Have anything special planned for Mothers Day? As a stepmom, I tend to just keep myself busy on Mothers Day by spending time with my mom. Barrett always does something for me, and the following Sunday we celebrate a mini stepmom day wih M.
