Well, another birthday has come and gone (on Wednesday to be exact). I'm not real sure what to think about birthdays anymore...I'm not real sure what I think about getting older... not real sure how I feel about receiving gifts...not real sure how I feel about bringing extra attention to myself (thanks to Facebook, everyone knew it was my birthday!) It's definitely not the same as it was when I was a kid. However, I have come to realize that it's a day to feel loved and to be thankful to my Creator! I realized that I am so blessed and have more and more to be thankful for each year of my life. So...looking at it that way...each year brings on more blessings, so bring on the birthdays!! Haha :o)

Here is how I did celebrate my day:

On Monday (we actually celebrated early), Jason and I were off of work so we took the kid to the Apple Orchard in Idalou! We enjoyed a lovely morning picking apples, pumpkins, walking around in the beautiful sunshine, and just being in God's creation. It was a beautiful day, perfect weather, and a great way to spend some much needed time together.

On Wednesday, I ended up not having to work, so I wandered around Target for a while by myself (I can't tell you how much fun that was!!!), had lunch with my wonderful Mom-in-law, went for a walk with Mollie, worked in the garden, then had a relaxing dinner at home with my two favorite people! It was a great day and I went to bed feeling blessed.

To continue the celebration, we partied at our tailgate before the TTU vs. OSU game (thank you to all the 60,000+ people that celebrated my special day with us...because they certainly didn't have anything to celebrate about that game!) And I believe we have a fun afternoon planned tomorrow as well.
Two sweet Red Raider fans: Mollie and cousin Maddox!

So, it's been a great birthday, a great week, and great times spent with my family! Yay!

I thought of you on the 13th and meant to call and flaked out. I'm glad to hear you had a good one! Sorry I'm a bad friend, but I do love you :)
