Thanks for indulging me yesterday on my “all about me day!” Talk about narcissism!
For not really looking forward to my birthday this year, it turned out really nice. Well not THIS nice, but seriously, that was an impossible fantasy! Actually, part of my fantasy came true…
Tate went to work late yesterday morning so that I wouldn’t have to get up at 5:15. (He goes to work EARRRRRRRRLY). Very thoughtful. He lovingly presented me with a cake he decorated himself. He was very proud of his masterpiece. It was a very nice surprise. And!!! He presented me with a gift certificate for a Mother-to-be massage and a pedicure at the Grand Hotel Spa in Point Clear, AL (score 1 for fantasies!!). He even said that I should go shopping in Fairhope after my pampering day. For those of you that don’t know (that would probably be MOST of you) , Fairhope is this really quaint, upscale town filled with antiques stores, boutiques, artsy fartsy shops, and cafes. It’s a lovely place to walk around and browse the shops.
My in-laws are vacationing in Puerto Vallarta right now and said my gift would be something they find in Mexico. Hope it’s not Mexican water. Or tequila.
I got some money from my parents and Grandma for my birthday. And it was burning a whole in my wallet. And it was a perfect 75 degree, sunny, no wind day, stupid to sit inside reading blogs all day kinda day. So, I packed up Peanut in my non-Parents magazine approved vehicle and we headed off to TJ Maxx. Woo hoo! Peanut actually cooperated with the stroller and my bladder didn’t demand to be emptied every two minutes! Obviously, they knew I was coming! It was a good shopping day. Hey, not just good, spectacular!
Looky what I got!
Yes, it’s Ralph Lauren! Aren’t you impressed? I am! Guess how much I paid? Give up? $29.99! You read that right! $29.99!!
It’s going to be my hospital bag! A completely unnecessary purchase (which makes it even better)! How shallow am I?
You like my new shoes?!! They’re wedges. I feel so trendy! Oh yeah, and they’re Born. I know, my high style shoes are oh so impressive!
I also found some cute washcloths and a pink photo album for Petunia pictures, and a book on Trucks for Peanut. I didn’t take a picture, there wasn’t any name brand dropping to be done here.
Tate came home early so we could go out to dinner. We even went to an Italian joint, which is NOT carb friendly for my carb nazi husband. Another very kind thing for Tate to do. (Who is this man and what did he do with my husband!?) And there were lots of leftovers so I don’t have to figure out what’s for lunch today! Yay!
Other than being OLD and having Dora’s song “backpack, backpack…” in my head all day, it was a fine day indeed. Actually, I had my own version stuck in my head all day…”back fat, back fat…”
