In the midst of a crazy busy season and a crazy busy week, my birthday, which was on Monday, was made special by so many people. I have been celebrated all week!
Not counting the gifts that have been arriving throughout the month from my mom (thanks mom), my birthday week began on Sunday with a birthday song during the Easter party we went to... It carried on to Monday which began with an early morning birthday song from my two munchkins. A delicious muffin and mocha from Staci. An hour and a bit to myself while Shelley hung out with my little ones. A great lunch. Heaps of birthday calls, emails, Facebook love from all around the globe! Errands with the fam and an 'at home sushi date' with my man. It was a great day! The festivities continued as the week went on. Last night I got to spend some quality time with Staci and Renee, have a little bite and watch a funny movie. It was much needed friend time.
Can I just brag about my husband for a minute?Well, sure I can...it's my blog after all :-) He was *so* thoughtful for my birthday gift this year. He will tell you that I am hard to buy presents for. I am not really hard to buy for...I am so easy to please, but I am terrible at telling people what I want. I did tell him a month or so ago that I would love the A&E version of Pride and Prejudice so I was sure that was what I would receive.
That's not what I got (not from him at least...but from Renee. Thank you very much!)
Markus got me this...That's right, my very own pretty blue iPod Shuffle. He knows I have a *secret runner* in me that is trying to find her way out so he got me this one so I could use it when I run. He wanted me to have something that is just mine. Something I can really use and something that will make my attempts at running a bit more enjoyable. I was SO thankful and blessed by his thoughtfulness. Above and beyond anything I expected!
A huge thank you to everyone who helped make my birthday so special this year. THANK YOU!
(And now it's out. There is a secret runner inside of me *somewhere* (or so I think). Now that I have typed it for the blogosphere to read, you have to keep me at my word. Check in with me. Ask me if I am doing anything about it. I am starting the Couch to 5K program and the Wharf to Wharf is coming up too!)
