Just what I wanted!

So it is my birthday today. I was just kind of dreading it because it is 35. Ya, I know, 35. I am starting to see a lot more wrinkles, more rolls and muffin tops and just kind of feeling well . . . old lately. But oh well. Life is good.
I can't complain!

However, it is only 3:00 in the afternoon and it has been a great day so far. I slept in and didn't workout today. It was a nice present to myself.
When I went out to the kitchen Casey had a ZONE Bar on our "Celebrate" plate. (We use the plate for breakfast on birthday's in our family)
While I was getting the boys ready for school Casey came and gave me a really nice card and then he gave Sophie a present to bring to me. I am sooooo excited about the necklace they gave me! I have been wanting one for a few years ever since my good friend Beckie got one.
So I found a website where they sell them a month or so ago and forwarded it to Casey and told him I was going to order one for myself for my birthday. He told me that was stupid and I shouldn't order things for myself. But I wanted to anyway . . . . But every time I sat down to do it, I couldn't decide which one and just never did it. Well, he totally surprised me this morning! Love it! Love it! Love it! It has each of the kids names and their birthstone. Thanks Casey. Seriously I married the best guy in the whole world. Someone was looking out for me when we hooked up!
I got to visit with my visiting teachers who brought me a caramel apple in white chocolate and cinnamon and sugar and a loaf of pumpkin bread from Kneaders. MY FAVORITE! Then the relief society brought me a huge Symphony bar. Seriously I am going to gain 10 lbs. this birthday. I already ate the ENTIRE caramel apple. And it wasn't small!
Casey and I are leaving in about an hour to go out to dinner in SLC and to see THRILLER at Kingsbury Hall. So EXCITED!!!!!!!
Seriously, just as I was typing this the someone knocked on the door and brought me a beautiful flower bouquet from my sister in law Alisha! THANKS! Seriously, THANKS! That is so thoughtful!
