Quiet But Fun Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday. I turned 27. *sigh* I feel old. No, not really. I'm still young at heart! lol. Mostly yesterday was just any other day. I haven't truly celebrated a birthday in a long time and even then it was just a small family and friends get together. Never more than like 6-10 people at best.

Yesterday I got up with Bug, we snuggled in my bed to watch some cartoons before breakfast (and to let Mommy catch a few more winks while Curious George and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse was keeping him enthralled.) After that, it was downstairs for a nice breakfast of cheese omelets and for me to do some laundry. yeah! My mom called for a few minutes and we talked about this and that and then it was off to cut up some more firewood with my dad. They are retired and never stop working around the house.

As for me, I didn't really do anything productive (aside from the laundry) and curled up on the couch for much of the afternoon reading a book (during Bug's naptime.)

When Darling Hubby got home he gave me my present. A gift certificate for one "Afternoon Off" session at a local spa. I'm really looking forward to that. It will be nice to get a whole afternoon off to be pampered. Now I just need to find the time to get an afternoon off. I think all my weekends for a while are occupied now that summer is here. After that, we had a nice family dinner at my favorite restaurant, Friendly's. Later Darling Hubby and I curled up on the couch to watch the Series Finale of Stargate SG1 and the Season Finale of Stargate Atlantis. Yes, we are geeks.

Today I allowed my birthday to spill over and I got up early (gasp! On my day to sleep in of all days!). Darling Hubby was actually happy that I got up early. He said it's nice to see my face before 10am on Saturdays. I did a quick check of the newspaper online and planned out a route for garage sale hopping. I love going to garage sales. I got several kids books, a couple long sleeved shirts, a pair of jeans, a Little People amusement park set (complete with figures) and a new sippy cup all for Bug. For me I got a couple books, a little stuffed Eeyore and a silver heart necklace all for $7.70. Woot! I love a good deal. And then I went grocery shopping and bought enough food to make dinner every night for 2 whole weeks. And, I used the 3 canvas bags that I found at in the attic at my moms house last weekend that she wasn't using. And next time I use them at the store, I'll get 3 cents off for each bag! I'm going to the craft store tonight when Bug wakes up and Darling Hubby gets home to look for some scrapbooking stuff and I'm going to check to see if they have any more bags. I felt really good using them, although the cashier seemed a little put out by it cause it slowed down the bagger, but who cares! I'm doing my little bit to help save the environment!
