Today's my birthday. My first of many 29ths to come, I'm sure :). I didn't even mention my birthday on my blog last year, nor did we celebrate in real life. I was in a horribly depressed state and just wasn't in the mood for anything. Thankfully, it's a different story this year. Even though this year has already been the 3rd snowiest winter on record (for Chicago), I'm trying not to let it affect me too much. So far so good, and I'm looking forward to celebrating another year today.
Harry gave me his present last night, it was seriously the sweetest thing ever. We were grocery shopping at Target and walked passed their little display of flowers. We've walked passed that thing about a billion times and he'd never said anything about it until yesterday, when he was suddenly really interested in the flowers. We stopped to look at them and I asked if he wanted to get a little bouquet. He said yes, and picked a little bunch of yellow tulips.
When we got home I unwrapped the flowers and showed them to Harry. I asked them what they were for, and he said "mommy," then gave me a huge hug. Come on now, how awesome is my kid?!? He always asks if it's his birthday so this week I've been telling him my birthday is soon. Not sure if he really put two and two together or if it was just a coincidence, but these are, without a doubt, the best flowers I've ever received.
Not sure what we're going to do today. I've got four or five restaurants in mind for dinner, picking one will probably be a game time decision. And if the snow's as bad as the weather report thinks it's going to be, we might be postponing until a later date.
I thought about doing one of those 30 before 30 lists, but I honestly don't think I could come up with anything significant. I'm a simple girl and that's okay. Although I would like to swim with dolphins at some point- can you even do that in Chicago? Doubtful, so that might have to wait for my 40 under 40 list.
Bring it on, 29!
