Monday love

Another edition of Monday love…

Something personal: I can remember when my birthdays were sooooooo exciting.  My mom always made a big deal out of my birthday when I was a kid.  We didn’t have a lot of money, but my mom always made sure I had anything I wished for on my birthday (which was usually something much less expensive than any of the Apple products that a high-schooler would ask for now).  This year I had the BEST birthday.  Jeff let me sleep in (although I still got up), opened cards from my kiddos, went out to breakfast at West Egg Cafe (YUM!), followed by a NAP (yes, that’s right, I took a NAP!!).  THEN,  I got to go shopping for a new purse (and found an awesome fossil bag on clearance) AND out to dinner with my hubby to my favorite restaurant 4th & Swift.  As if that wasn’t enough, Jeff surprised me with an iPad2!!!!!!!  Completely unexpected, and unnecessary, but I can’t wait to get my hands on that thing!!!!  It won’t be here for a few weeks (although there is a loooooooong story about all of his efforts to get something here sooner).  Anyway, here’s a picture of us before our dinner date.  I asked my babysitter to snap a quick pic of Jeff and I – but the kids wanted to jump in.  It’s always better with the kids, and I love that Jake is holding on to Kylie.  😉

Something about food: Taken from my friend Lisa Russo’s Blog – an awesome and super-simple way to cook brussel sprouts.  YUM!  I made a big batch even though I’m the only one that will eat them – and I’ve been munching on them all week!

More personal stuff – just had to share a couple quick snapshots from our adventure to the Dogwood Festival on Sunday morning.  I COULD NOT believe that Kylie wanted to go on the “Spider Jump” – but she loved it!  Jake was terrified of the Ferris Wheel and had a death grip on our hands anytime it was in view, saying “NO DAT, NO DAT!”  (Meaning, “No That”).  So funny!

I hope to see you all at the Shop, Sip & Savor event tomorrow night!!!
