Dear Grandma,

Thank you for the birthday card, it will stay displayed on my entry table for awhile longer because every time I see it I think of you. I want to show you the cute shoes I bought today (thanks to you). I think you will like them, I know I do.

What do you think? Fun. Flirty. Colorful. Are they me? I love them, but I love you more! Thanks for thinking of me and for letting me spoil myself with something fun.

I love you!


p.s. You should see the shirts I also found, they go very nicely with the shoes.

31 Candles

Today is my happy birthday! The older I get, the longer birthday's seem to last. You get early birthday wishes, on the day birthday wishes and belated birthday wishes. It's great! I call it MY BIRTHWEEK. It started Sunday with many friends at church who thoughtfully read the Relief Society calendar and remembered my special day...thank you! Following church, we had a yummy dinner with my parents and brother coming up to join us. Mediterranean Tostadas. Truly delicious. I will need to share this recipe, you will love it!

Today, Max remembered it was my Birthday and so did Sam (guessing by the gigantic smile on his face when he woke up). Many friends called, some serenading me and my lovely friend Jeanette came bearing a delicious chocolate cream pie. If Max had not been a witness to this gracious gift I would have taken a fork to it immediately!

An evening picnic with my favorite boys enjoying my favorite indulgence was the perfect ending to a wonderful celebration of my 31 years.

I have been quite reminiscent lately...more of that for another day.

p.s. I've missed our little blog. The summer was spent with enjoying time with the boys. How easily distracted I am by their loving attention! Not to worry, with a lot to catch up on, there will be many posts to come!
