Belated Birthday

This past Thursday I turned 31 yrs old, and I have been way too busy to write a post until now.  As much as I would like to say I've been busy with birthday celebrations, it's not true.  Don't get me wrong, we did find the time for a tasty BBQ with the in-laws and a lovely dinner at a TexMex restaurant with family & friends.  But all the time surrounding those events has been a bit chaotic.  All b-day celebrations took place before my actual b-day due to lack of time, but I did save some presents to open that night.  Since it's summer I want to make sure my 2yr old has plenty to keep her entertained, which leads to an overbooked schedule.  Besides a play date almost everyday we decided to throw in refurnishing our living & dining room, dog sitting, & doctor appointments.  Between my full schedule and my husband working 50-60hrs a week, the apartment looked like a disaster zone (finally tended to household duties yesterday afternoon).  Middle of this coming week looks a little less busy, maybe I'll finally get some time to kick back and enjoy the great b-day presents I received and use the gift certificates that are burning a hole in my pocket. 

A lot has changed since the carefree birthdays of childhood.  The biggest concern in those days were where the party was being held and who was joining in the fun. 

Now it's on to the next round of b-day's, there are 4 more family b-days this summer!
