Definitely One Year Older, Possibly One Year Wiser Too...

For my 29th birthday I received:
  • Some great birthday cards. I'm not sure why I feel more emotionally attached to my b-day cards this year than usual, but I do. I love them, I keep them next to my bed and they make me smile and lift me up when I see them.
  • The best present ever from Aurora! She let me sleep in until a little after was amazing and pure bliss.
  • A birthday serenade on my voicemail from my parents.
  • A birthday package that arrived on my birthday. What's better than receiving a fun package in the mail from a dear friend? And it contained my favorite things: Books!
  • Oreos, Snickers Ice Cream, and Strawberry Trifle. Birthdays don't get much better than that.
  • Lots of texts and FB comments wishing me Happy Birthday.
  • Time with family, including my brothers. One of the nice things about living close to family.
  • A Wii. Finally! We have been planning and saving to buy one for over 2 years now but when it came down to actually purchasing it, we always talked ourselves out of it because there was always something else that was more of a "need" and practical that we should spend our money on. So it went back on the "wants" list and "to save for" list for the next holiday, birthday, special occasion just to be passed up again. But no more will it be returned to The Lists because Jared spontaneously bought it! Can't talk yourself or a spouse out of it if it's spontaneous. And I was surprised because Jared told me that our new home was my b-day present. I'm glad we waited and postpone buying it previously but it was time for this purchase to bring balance to The Lists.
Once again, relatively simple, rather quiet but just how I love it!


  1. Happy Birthday! Sounds like a perfect day you will love your Wii it's the one thing my entire family can agree on to play.

  2. I'm glad you had a nice birthday! I hope you enjoy the Wii, I'd like to get one someday, you know, before the next big thing comes out. :)

  3. Missed yours too!! Sorry. Glad you got your wii! Don't forget to make your "before I'm 30" list! Happy birthday!
