Milking It

I'm still 37!
I plan on celebrating for at least another week or two.


Yesterday, Marcus made a delicious breakfast:

He actually makes Katie and I eggs several mornings a week. AND he doesn't even like eggs. He's a keeper.

This is what I look like at 37:

Actually we went to the zoo, but I kind of feel like that fella.

The train was a highlight:

I have been wanting to take Katie to the zoo for several months, and yesterday was the perfect day. And I love spending quality time with my little family of 3.

Oh and we ran into Frugal Jen, so that was exciting!


The day was supposed to end with me going to see The Vow and eating at the Cheesecake Factory with a fabulous friend, BUT I got a ginormous headache. Like a scary, maybe should I go to the ER, it would be weird to die on my birthday kind of headache.
It didn't last super long, but it was intense.

So instead Marcus got some delicious Chicken Express.

For YEARS, I would not even try Chicken Express, because they had a flying chicken on their sign. I do not like to see the "alive version" of what I'm about to eat.
But one day I tried it and saw the light. It is so dang good!

AND I get to go to the movies and CCF later this week. I am really looking forward to it!


And on top of making me breakfast, taking me to the zoo, of course buying me a coke, getting dinner, and taking care of Katie, Marcus also got me this super cute purse from Brighton:


I got this pic off their website. I need to take one of my own personal purse. It has lime green interior. LOVES it!

We celebrated with family on Sunday and I got lots of root touch up!


You may be thinking that my family is rude, but I asked for this stuff. I seriously need to use it every other week, if not more!

My sister in law got me this cute bag that she embellished. I also got a turquoise flower to put on it instead of the gray one.

And fun polka dot napkins. She knows me so well!

My in laws and parents were very generous too.

My sister got me new cushions for my front patio set! My nephew Ryan (behind me) said they brought the biggest gift, because they love me the most. Sweet thing!


The Katie flying happened when we all went outside to test out my new cushions.



She also did some swinging. My mom was having tiny strokes during all this action.


I am thankful for my family!

I am super blessed.

Do you see my cute cushions back there?!

Let the celebration continue...
