Birthdays get less exciting as you get older, but I still really like my birthday. Yesterday was my birthday. It wasn’t too exciting, but it was just right.
I woke up a bit earlier than usual. I ate my breakfast and caught up on my Google Reader while I waited for Cupcake to wake up.
She ate breakfast and we read about 10 books snuggled up on the couch. I got the ironing board out and finally got around to ironing the bedskirt for the guest room. I then managed to get the bedskirt on the bed
by myself with a little help from my four legged friend.
And threw some laundry in.
Then we were off to swim lessons. She did much better in the pool yesterday than she had done all week. There was barely any fussing and even some smiles as she floated and kicked!
We came home, had leftover ravioli for lunch, played trains, unloaded the dishwasher, straightened up the kitchen a bit and got the mail.
It was a good trip to the mailbox!! I received two birthday cards and a box! Cupcake insisted I open the box right away. She probably thought it was for her since lately they have been with her birthday and momma ordering some new diapers thanks to the BumGenius Buy 5, Get 1 Free sale!
Cupcake went down for her nap, I showered and did some more laundry. Then it was “me” time. I curled up on the couch with my new books!
Yeah, I was happy to lay on the couch reading a cookbook or two in my free time. I can’t wait to start making some of these recipes!!! I didn’t get around to reading the sewing book, yet, but I’m sure it won’t be long before those pages get flipped.
Post-nap Cupcake had a fruit and veggie smoothie (peaches, strawberries, sweet potatoes, yogurt, honey). Apparently swimming makes her hungry (she had two helpings of ravioli at lunch!). We snuggled up on the couch and watched some Curious George.
I was not going to cook dinner on my birthday! And hubby and I had had a conversation earlier in the week about wanting some delivery (or carryout) pizza. Darn that movie we watched that had a scene or two at Pizza Hut!! But I thought it’d make a good birthday dinner. So hubby got some carryout.
I hadn’t had Little Caesers in who knows how long!
And my requested dessert………..
Again, I can’t remember the last time I had a Dairy Queen cake! It was everything I hoped it would be!!!
We shared the evening with friends (Thanks for coming Mike and Joanna!). Cupcake reluctantly shared her toys with Sweety Petey.
I did some diaper stuffing and Cupcake was off to bed. Hubs and I settled in in the cool basement to catch up on Mad Men (we’re 5 episodes behind!!), while being whined at by a dachshund because he’s not allowed to chew on his rawhide (which is his favorite basement past time).
And that is how a stay-at-home mom spends her weekday birthday (this one anyway).
