I turned 25 on Monday. A quarter century :) I can't believe how quickly the time goes. This was already the fifth birthday that Jack has celebrated with me. As usual we milked the occasion, having a 'birthday weekend' and 'birthday eve', where basically I get to choose every meal, every activity, request massages, etc. It was such a nice three days. Saturday we dropped Olivia off with my sister, Chandler, and saw Hugo in theaters (it was good if you love movies). Sunday we relaxed and watched The Holiday (my favorite chick flick).
Monday morning while I was feeding Livs, Jack decked the living room out in pink decorations and put my wrapped gifts on the coffee table. He gave me clues to locations around the house where I would get a gift number and then get to open that gift. Jack is the best I know at paying attention to little comments I make about things I want. He got me the movie Persuasion, Saved by the Bell: the College Years (I know, I'm the coolest person ever), the books A History of Witches and The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, Ralph Lauren sweats, he renewed my year subscription to People magazine, got me a nice ceramic sautee pan, a Harry Potter mug, and a cool pendant necklace that he designed and had engraved with representations of my, his, and babygirl's nicknames :) so clever.
Monday night we had a retro roller rink party with both of our families at Classic skating in Sandy. It was seriously a blast. I felt twelve years old again....except the baby on my hip for half the night. when I was younger I used to roller blade for hours every day. It's been a long time but it all came back to me ;) Along with skating, we rented out a karaoke room and a superhero room. I had a big rainbow cake and when everyone crammed into a room to sing Happy Birthday, I felt so loved and supported. Thanks everyone for all of the thoughtful birthday wishes and for helping me celebrate.
