Day 197: Queen For A Day

It's my birthday. And it has been a truly fabulous one. For the remainder of this post "!" = Joyful Moment, okay? And I'm going to back up a little since last night's post was so brief.

My friend organized a great big outing in honor of my birthday and another friend's birthday coming up in a couple days. They took us to dinner last night at the Cheesecake Factory (HH decided I should take a 24-hour break from the dairy/soy free diet--please, don't judge me). YUM! Then we went shopping and I bought myself a pair of awesome birthday jeans from the Loft. Love them!

Then we headed to a little bed and breakfast not too far from here. It was so cute! We played games, chatted, chatted, and chatted some more, and had an awesome girly time! And hardly slept. That part wasn't a Joyful Moment.

But hanging out with them some more this morning was! And watching all of them fawn over my super awesome Baby B was! Then I came home to a super cute display of gifts from my family! Sweet P and Little M were so excited for me to open them. They gave me some sweet and thoughtful (and a little bit funny) gifts! And HH gave me some pretty amazing gifts that I'm SUPER excited about!

Then we picked up pizza from Papa John's because I decided that if I was going to have dairy, pizza was what I most wanted! And we had a fun, delicious dinner! Then they lit my candles on the cake and Little M spit all over me in his zeal to blow them out for me! Okay, that one might have been a bit of a stretch. I didn't really enjoy the spit on my face. But I do love my family and just how wonderfully special they made me feel today! And my fabulous friends as well! I feel truly blessed!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments where the world really does revolve around you--just for a day!

My joy today was remembering the sweet baby who arrived in our family 28 years ago - Can it really be 28 years?! And all the joys you've brought ever since. Thanks for being you! love you...
