My day was extra special because it also happened to be Brother's 4 month birthday too!
Four months! I can't believe it. He's growing like a weed.
I was really excited for my birthday this year. Still not quite sure why. Maybe it's because I have big plans to squeeze every last bit of life out of my 20's before I hit the big, gasp, 3-0. It was a good day. And my little family made it so memorable. So, what did I wish for?
I wanted to go for a hike with my family. And we did at Nerstrand Big Woods State Park. Gorgeous.
My girl doesn't run, she prances. Just like a little princess should.
I had one more wish. Greedy, I know. I wanted a cake. Not just any old cake. I wanted Nugget and Daddy to make me one. I was thinking maybe some funfetti boxed mix, frosted and dossed in a healthy heap of sprinkles. Just the way Nugget would like it. But I should have know better. He impressed again.
Can you guess who was in charge of the candles?
Holy smokes! (Pun intended) That's a lot of candles!
Homemade Tiramisu. To die for. I can still taste it. Good thing there's over half of it still left in my fridge!
And although I didn't ask for this, I was pleasantly surprised.
Mama: Nugget, did you get me a present?!
Nugget: Yeah, it's a basket!
Mama: (Trying to deter her away from any more reveals) Ooh, and did you make me a card?
Nugget: It's for your bike!
Looks like we need to work on secret keeping skills.
It's good to be loved, and boy, was I sure spoiled today. Cheers to my 29th birthday, and may I be forever young!
