Today I turned another year older. It was one of the better birthdays in recent memory. As each year passes, I find myself loving birthdays for a very different reason. Here are a few things that made my day awesome.
Birthday cards from both of my grandmas. Both had notes about praying for me and taking time for myself. Such cool messages to hear from the women I love so much.
Got to play in a volleyball tournament all day Saturday with some awesome ladies. One of them is the sweetest girl in the world. She texted my husband earlier in the week to find out my favorite type of cake and spent Friday night baking it just for me!
She brought it to the tournament and the team dug into the cake. Love that she spent her Friday night googling “how to bake an angel-food cake” and almost burning her house down just to surprise me. They don’t make them much more genuine than this girl and I love it.
Spent today with a cup of coffee, and this lovely gift from the hubster.
The Nook color from Barnes & Noble! We had gone to look at them earlier in the week but I wasn’t sure he would go for it since he was thinkin’ an iPad might be a nice addition. I already started Water for Elephants and am pumped to use this bad boy on the bus each morning! Kim; are you ready for a nook sharing buddy? I’m all over it!
Mr Housewife didn’t stop there. Today we spent a few hours going through some of the amazing new homes on the “Parade of Homes” tour.
Got a few ideas for the laundry room that we can possibly tackle this summer. Looking at houses isn’t his favorite thing to do, but it’s definitley mine. He sacrificed his afternoon of golf viewing to check the houses out, and even got excited about a few projects we might tackle. Love.
But the best part? He spent the evening making me one of my favorite things.
My man can make a mean french toast. That’s how we roll on Sunday nights. HEAVEN.
Love love love this birthday.
