So Yesterday was my birthday. Hooray! I'm older! :) The festivities started the week prior when Preston and I took an evening out to eat at Tucano's and catch a movie. My gifts (as usual) were received prior to my birthday. One, I have already mentioned (Dance Central on the Kinect) which, by the way, I totally rock at now! How many people can say that they achieved a 5 star rating on Rump Shaker?? OK, probably anyone who gives it a shot, but it's worth the bragging rights. The other gift is 2 tickets to Les Miserables in SLC in May, which I am totally excited about. I have seen it twice before, but will gladly see it 100x more.
So yesterday I took the kids out to a nice lunch at Arby's (I know, so fancy!) and then to the
dollar store so they could pick out a present for me. Thurston chose a baton, and JoJo chose a recorder. Sadly, neither of these have survived past 3pm the next day, but it's the thought that counts- right?
I also splurged on a couple items myself (big spender) and one of the items included a silicon pastry brush. Below is Aleah hoarding all 3 of these items. I will say that she DID NOT LET GO of the pastry brush until this afternoon. She still picks it up when she sees it though. This included:
Dong Khanh Vietnamese diner
The Cheesecake Factory
all around the house
all meals in between
and a second nap time.
She's so funny!
So of course, my neighbor brings these by as a thank you for watching her kids. They are so, so ,so amazingly delicious. I told myself that I could have one, only after doing 100 jumping jacks. Of course, the need for more came, so let's just say that I have done a lot of jumping jacks today. So for fun, you can now imagine a 31 year old housewife in spandex pants doing jumping jacks in the kitchen in front of a tub of goodies. That's how I roll... and why my stomach does too.
