37-Years...

I'm 37-years old today!
This birthday is more special than others for many reasons but mostly because I have been given the best gift ever this year.
Expecting our first child.
It's hard to believe that 29-years ago I actually had a baby shower themed birthday party when I turned 8.
I'll never forget it.
My Mom asked what I wanted for my birthday and, being all about my 'babies' aka Cabbage Patch Kids, I said I wanted things for them.
That's how the theme came about.
Now, all these years later I'm having real baby showers, for a real baby, not a doll!

We celebrated my birthday over the weekend and it is by far one of the best I've had in years.
Brad outdid himself with a cake, card, a weekend playing in the water, and a handbag I've been admiring for years.
I know some of you detest this statement, but it's the truth, I'm absolutely over the moon!

I scheduled our last childbirth class knowing that it was my birthday so no plans tonight, which I'm fine with.
What I'm NOT fine with is that I left my cell phone at home!
Of all days!!!
LOL!!
Happy Wednesday!

My mom brought up my very first Cabbage Patch Doll this weekend when she came to visit (and dump off tons of storage bins from my youth!). I love that that was your party theme!!!
