Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to me! Friday was my birthday and I've had a fabulous birthday weekend. I took Friday - Monday off of work, and am so, so glad I did. I'm still dealing with all of the insurance business from our flood almost two months ago, and I needed a break.

Friday also meant the end of Chris working at Nissan! Yahoo! We've really liked the company, but he's ready for a change in his career, and it was the right time. He was a little sad to leave, but he's over it! And we're both SO excited to be debt free by the end of the week, thanks to his severance check. Now the school plans start for him.

Friday I woke up to presents from Chris and the boys in the kitchen, and presents outside of my front door from Julie. What a nice surprise! I also am getting from Chris my standard gift, a new Vera Bradley bag and matching wallet. Predictable? Yes, but I love it. I can't decide between this one or this one. Or maybe this one. We had a babysitter Saturday night and went to look at them, but the store we went to had like three bags. I was disappointed! We also went to "I-hog" for breakfast on Friday morning. It's the kids' favorite breakfast place, and I *knew* they would be well behaved. Wrong. David and Henry were great, but Jack was a nightmare. He faked it for a while and behaved well. Then he went all crazy demon baby on us and started screaming. I brought him out to the car while Chris stayed and ate with the boys!

We also had a great visit with my grandparents, who were here for the weekend. We had a great time, and I wish we could see them more. Yesterday we spent the day at my parents' house with them, my parents, and my sister just swimming and playing. We had a great weekend!

Today we're all business, off to pick up our car, get some cleaning done, and perhaps have sweet Sophia and her cute sister Audrey over to play. If that doesn't happen, I'm thinking maybe we'll take the kids to the splash pad for a bit to play. Chris hates it there, but he can get over it.

Have a great day!

Happy Birthday again. Sounds like it was a great one!

I have this VB bag and love it!

I couldn't see the link to the 1st bag but this pattern is the same as your 3rd one. It's really bright and fun for summer.
