I have had a really nice birthday. Even if I WAS sad about my age - I got SOOOOOO many e-mails, texts, facebook comments, tweets and blog comments that have just made my day! I am so blessed to know so many sweet and encouraging people! And I thought it was funny how many of you left me comments to tell me you shared my birthday! Happy Birthday to you all! I have never known anyone with my birthday except for Diane Sawyer (and I am mourning her loss on GMA big time). (and yes - a Christmas birthday is as awful as you imagine but my family always tried to make it special and as an adult - I think it's fun to have your birthday during such a fun week!)
I had lunch at Gusano's - a local pizza place I love with a new friend Kristen and her little boy Trevor. I had such a nice time with them - they are so sweet!
This afternoon I headed over to Laurie's to exchange gifts for Christmas. We tried so hard to get a good picture of the girls but it was pretty much impossible (on a side note - I used my tiny little camera in all of today's pictures so the quality is pretty poor. I've been spoiled with our nice camera).
As we were leaving - a sweet couple stopped me and the girl, Courtney, told me she read my blog. ha! She knew it was my birthday and that I loved eating at Abuelo's. ha! It was fun to meet her! Thanks for saying hi Courtney!!!
We went and got hot chocolate at Starbucks and drove around and looked at Christmas lights. Harper fell asleep pretty quick so we cut our trip short and came home and put her to bed.
