DA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NA THEY SAY ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!
thats right folks, 28 years ago today i was born. (almost exactly this minute too...5:25 eastern time).
i've had a glorious yet busy birthday weekend.
friday, a group of us from work (and greta) went to a great pizza place for lunch. i then left work early and me and greta did a lil shopping. went and picked up the kiddos and headed back to greta's for dinner and a lil veronica mars.
saturday, mike got mikey registered for tball and then we dropped the kiddos off at my mom's and me and mike did a lil lunch and some shopping. despite the horrific rain, we had fun. we went to the antique store, lunch at bayview gourmet where i had an excellent shrimp remoloude (sp?) salad, the whole foods store where the cashier is the art teacher who bought this from me and whom i purchased a ton of yummy stuff (including some lavendar which will make its way into some cupcakes in the next upcoming days), we went to a coffee shop for coffee and cake, michael's, sams, hobby lobby and then we headed back to mom's to pick up her and the kiddos and head to the blow fly inn where i had yummy stuffed crab shells. we then went to mom's for presents and cake.
today, i kinda got up in a mood. a really shitty mood to be exact and i'm not sure why. mike made his ubber-delicious pancakes and sausage (veggie sausage for me) for breakfast. and then i guess due to the mood, i've spent all day on the couch watching trash tv. mike and the kiddos gave me some wonderful goodies.
i've had some wonderful birthday phone call wishes from:
*my friend michele
*my buddy tom from work
i've also received a wonderful email from my cousin amy and a cute ecard from jennifer and my mom.

tomorrow i go to work. i'll have to break it to the boss that i need to leave around lunch for the day. mikey has a mardi gras parade. then on tuesday i am off of work (poor mike has to work with everyone else on the department for a 12 hour shift). i intend on spending the day finishing up picking up the goodies for my vintage shop, making some cupcakes, maybe some beignets, and spending the day with the kiddos.
the rest of the week, who knows. i'm am going to try to be better about bloggin'. i've been so outta it this week as far as bloggin' goes. i don't know whats with me. i've also been bad about reading and leaving comments. this week should be better though.
hope ya'll had a great weekend!
