As most of you know, yesterday was my 29th birthday! My bday was perfect. A bottle of Cakebread arrived for me before A got home so that I could start the weekend off right! Right after midnight, A gave me Baby J's card and gift for me. A told me that Baby J put a saddle on Daisy and rode the subway in search of the perfect new set of pearl studs for his Mommy. Ha, ha! This was a very appropriate gift since Baby J has almost ripped out my other pearls on numerous occasions. I love them and hopefully I won't lose this pair.
I woke up and fed baby J, and then A let me go back to sleep. When I woke up the 2nd time, the baby was being fed breakfast next to a large arrangement of pink roses and hydrangeas. Oh and there was a box from Saks and it has this little Burberry beauty in it. Hello lovely! I've been lusting after your pretty little plaid lining for quite some time now.
I enjoyed my favorite iced skinny vanilla latte and a yummy lemon blueberry muffin from Two Little Hens. The muffin indicated that I had even more to be excited about since they are famous for their red velvet cakes! It was so delicious. I had a slice for breakfast this morning. Yes, I did.
A and Baby J and I went to my favorite gourmet deli and grabbed some yummy sandwiches. We went for a picnic in Central park and it was so much fun (but rather warm!) After lunch, I got some Mommy time. I had a mani/pedi, got my eyebrows waxed and even splurged on a 10 minute shoulder massage. DIVINE!
One of A's friends from high school babysat for us and we went to The House for dinner. It was divine! We really enjoyed being out without the baby and it was a delicious dinner. I highly recommend it if you are in the area.
My bday really was a great day filled with sweet tweets from y'all and phone calls and emails from my friends and family. My parents gave me a haircut and facial here for when I go home. My brother and sister got me the magic bullet. I plan do do a lot in 10 seconds or less! I've been talking about wanting one of these for awhile now so I'm so freaking excited!! It's good to be 29. I think I'll be 29 forever.
I leave on Tuesday with Baby J to go back South for 10 days. My KD pledge class from college is having our annual beach reunion. There are 8 of us going to my parent's beach house for the weekend. There will also be 6 kids...under the age of 1.5 years old. It is going to be CRAZY! I'm praying the tropical storms in the Gulf do not mess with our fun.
Stay tuned for more birthday month giveaways! Have you signed up for Coyne and Pinckney's stationery giveaway? Click here to do so, they have such cute stuff. I'll draw for this one before I leave for the beach.
