For those of you who didn't know my 27th Birthday was on Friday. I had a pretty laid back day and enjoyed spending time w/ family and talking to everyone on the phone. Joe and Kaiden came in the room that morning singing 'Happy Birthday' to me which started my day off great! The kids were a little sick but did great for me the whole day. We celebrated my b-day a few days early and went to a haunted house on Tuesday night. Me, Joe, Shannon, and Lisa went to the 13th Gate for a nice scare and afterwards we went out to Coffee Call for some yummy hot chocolate and beignets. It was really fun and we all got a good laugh out of Shannon getting so scared. Which was nice b/c usually its people laughing at me for being a scaredy cat. On Friday I had lunch w/ my mom and Shannon and then the kids took a long nap which was great! I enjoyed relaxing on the couch, watching Oprah and answering my 'Happy Birthday' calls. Joe came home and the kids were still napping (I know nice huh?) so we visited outside and then made plans for later. We dropped the kids off at my mom's and then went out to a movie. Unfortunately there was nothing that I really cared about seeing so I agreed to see what Joe wanted, 30 Days of Night. Joe really liked it, me not so much. I just don't have the stomach for those gory movies anymore. While we were out my friend, Monica, dropped off a b-day cake at my mom's. Once we were done with the movie we all had some yummy Snickers cake at 10. Kaiden loved singing again and helped me blow out the candles. It was a great day and the kids even slept in for us on Saturday! Sunday evening we all had dinner at my parent's and then some homemade ice cream. It was great birthday weekend and now I need to work off those extra 10 lbs I gained!
