First, don’t forget about the blog candy below. Tonight, midnight. And THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the great wishes.
My birthday has ALWAYS been a great day. I usually celebrate for 3 weeks: the week before, the week during and the week after. So many family and friends to celebrate with. Why have only one big party and not many little parties ;)? Anyway, having kids and young ones for that matter give an extra special fun aspect to birthdays. I’ll say one thing… you can’t really plan much with small kids.
My 1 year-old is such a happy camper and so laid back. He doesn’t even cry if he hasn’t napped. He refuels with food and he’s good to go. Well, at about 1:30 last night, I heard THAT cry over the monitor. You know, the one that you know it will be a long night. It lasted for a split second and then it was gone. Until 2:30am. Then he was really bad off. REALLY HIGH TEMPERATURE and only wanted Mommy to hold him. So, from 2:30am to 5:30am, he slept on my head. Literally. One stupid thing I do, is not move to get comfortable because I don’t want to wake him up. So, 5:30 he wakes up my DH. Gave him Motrin and we all slept for a bit longer. The fever broke. YAY! Then 30 mins later my 5 year old woke up. Hmmm. Uh, Happy birthday mom!
Besides that… My DH planned a road trip for us today. He took me to Salado (about an hour from our house), Texas so that I could go to Stamp Salado (they carry A Muse stamps there … and did I mention no one in Austin does). We had lunch there too. Yummy. I remember going to that quaint little town when I was in high school. So much fun. AND STAMP SALADO is awesome. HOW DO they stay in business in a small town? I don’t know.
I met Mark (who works there) of Deadbeat Designs. He is very cool and his stamps are awesome. I picked up a couple of his designs. I also got some new A Muse stamps. They didn’t have the ones I was looking for but I did get some. Veronica, look very closely at the picture… see anything you like? It’s from Mark at Deadbeat Designs. Hook ’em!
Anyway, here’s my loot from today’s trip. I have to thank my dear husband for such a GREAT birthday (he also bought me a bunch of SU! new catalog stuff that’s not here yet!). The boys were good given the circumstances. Anyway, YAY! Stamp Stuff! Always on my wish list! 🙂
