Mark Your Calendars... I've Decided to Turn 30 Again Next Week

Thanks to everyone who called, emailed, facebooked, stopped by, sent a card, or sent a gift to wish me a happy birthday yesterday! I am truly blessed to have such wonderful family and friends and I really appreciate all of your kind gestures.

I also want to boast about how incredibly thoughtful and amazing my husband is, and thank him, again, for a fabulous day!

On Monday I received this email from Scott:

Just want to make sure you clear your day on Wednesday.

Here’s our plan for your “very exciting, hard to really believe it, but it is here” 30th Birthday:

I’m taking the whole day off to watch the kids.

9:00am – 1:00pm: You have an appointment at Fayez beauty Spa. Bring your bathing suit.

1:30pm: Meet me downtown for lunch at Blue Ginger (Clara will be with us for this part)

3:00pm: You’ll be heading to Masonville Mall, and/or anywhere else you want to go. All for you, no buying for anyone else. Clara stays with me, I will feed her from the milk in the freezer.

7:45pm: Come home, I’m making dinner, have a quick bite to eat, watch a movie with me, I’ll have the kids in bed and some popcorn ready too.

Now, I ask you, with a day like that, what girl wouldn't love to turn the big 3-0?!

He also picked up a delicious black forest cake so we could have a little celebration with the kids before bedtime.

Speaking of the kids, check out these adorable cards:

(I know it may be obvious to some of you, but for those non-pokemon lovers out there, this is a Pokemon card made by Brett. Yes, my very own Squirtle card, 50 HP no less!)

As it turns out, we postponed the shopping trip, as my Mother-in-law had to get rushed in for another emergency surgery yesterday, and Scott spent the afternoon at the hospital with her. Everything seems to be fine now, although the doctors still aren't sure why her arm started bleeding so much. Thanks to all who have been praying and fasting for Pat. I know that she has felt strengthened by you. Please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.


  1. Aaaw those cards are so cute! I'm so glad you had such an awesome day, you definitely deserve it. You're such an amazing sister and example to me. But I still can't believe you're 30, yikes! I wish I really was coming out to continue the celebrations by seeing Twilight together next week-end. Happy Birthday again, love you!

  2. Sorry that we are so caught up in our own lives that we didn't even realize you had reached a real milestone in your life! We did comment to each other that it was your birthday but that's as far as it got. Congratulations! So glad to hear that you have such a good husband - taking care of your every need! That's wonderful!
    Love you lots!

  3. I'm glad you had such a fabulous 30th Birthday - you deserve it! The cards from your kids are SO CUTE!


I love hearing from you! :)
