Beloved Birthday’s

Hey, did you know that I love my birthday?  Because if you are reading this blog, and you don’t know that, I am hurt.  Really hurt.

This year was no different.  I bought myself LOTS of presents, planned myself a rockin’ party with friends, and even got a Cafe Rio salad to BooT! 

I have a total of two pictures from the day, so I will post them.  I made each of the kids buy me a present at the dollar tree after we had fro-yo.  This is what Sage picked out. IMG_1373

Jaxon got me socks to go with my new shoes I bought myself.  Oh, and as a side note, if you’ve ever been unhappy with a gift that someone (spouse) has given you for your birthday, and you wish so badly you could have something else…..I have the solution.  BUY IT FOR YOURSELF.  Seriously, I got everything I wanted for my birthday.  Despite the fact that I was unhappy with the gift someone else (spouse) got me! :)

Here’s a photo from the party.  The picture doesn’t seem to show how exciting it truly was, but it was good times for sure.


It was another perfect birthday.  And next year is the big THREE OH!!  So just schedule yourself right now to come to my awesome party next January 27th!

Now on to the next.  Sage’s birthday last year was insane!  For that reason, as I planned this party I felt like I kept it way low-key and  somehow everyone was still perfectly happy.  So you’re telling my I don’t need princesses and jump houses to make a little kid happy on their birthday?  Who knew?  We had a Hello Kitty party with a guest list of only 3 sweet little girls.  Perfect.

We made candy necklaces, did face painting, played a few other games and that was it.

Sage wanted to go to Chuck E. Cheese after the party, and I’m not one to say no to such a request on a birthday, so we went and it was INSANE!  Jake and I had a headache the rest of the day.  The kids were happy though, and that’s what counts.P2050040

And no birthday will ever be complete for me again without a stop to Blue Cow.


Sage is finally four.  Last year it was like she’d been 3 forever on her birthday and this year was the same.  She’s just so grown up.  But I finally feel like she matches her age .   She is so fun and helpful, and is the best big sister.  Hazel adores her.  I love having her in my life, even if some days I have to remind myself of it over and over again.  She has a great sense of humor and makes me laugh out loud at least once a day.  She loves her Barbie's, Strawberry Shortcake toys, Hello Kitty, and all things Princess.  Just like I’d always dreamed my little girl would.  Happy Birthday my sweet Sage.  I love you!!!P2060047
