Birthday Celebrations

Last week I celebrated what has to be one of my favorite birthdays of all times. I may have mentioned to husband that I only want hand-drawn cards from now on. (Adamantly mentioned) Buuuut then almost immediately saw this one and reassessed my stance and said ‘If I were to get a birthday card, this is the card I would want.’ He said he tried really hard to remember which card it was but still ended up in Chapters for about 20 minutes going, shit, shit which one is it?

He got it right!!! Cutest card ever. It now lives in a picture frame as bedroom decor

 

Everyone should be so lucky as to start their day like this.

Not my most glamorous of looks but I was so happy to wake up to giggling whispery voices ‘Is she awake, shhh, shh, lets all sing to mommy’. Sooo cute you guys!

 

I feel like they really pulled out all the stops this year.

Seems about right. Classic.

Lily cried the entire time they sang to me. She wanted to sing in French but the boys began in English. We had to stop and do a full reset where I pretended like nothing happened. This is actually the less disastrous second round. She’s like a little bitty old Jewish lady, often she reminds me of my great Aunt Lillian, ‘Do you know how much a pack of gum cost?! Oy Vey!’

 

But in fun and exciting news, I had no idea where we were going.  Husband kept it a secret right up until we left, which I totally loved and was probably a really good idea. It was so much fun anticipating! I was given directions to dress up a little and think 80’s.

So where did we go???

DINNER THEATER!

Oh gosh you guys it was so much fun. We went to a murder mystery dinner theater. There is a whole series of videos we made that day. I’m going to try and link them all to youtube. If you were watching them you may have seen that my reaction upon finding out where we were going was less than ideal. Watching it after A. That’s a terrible camera angle and b. Super funny! I completely dropped any game face and was actually pretty rude. That would be why he knew he had to keep it a secret. If you know anything about me you should probably know I am not into scary things, at all! Not even movie previews. I immediately thought we were going to be locked in an old creepy theater, the lights would go out, something would brush against the back of my leg and all you would hear would be screaming. That would be me screaming, just so we’re clear.   Let’s talk outfit for a second.  When he said dress 80’s I didn’t actually take it to heart. This is legitimately what I wore. I love wearing tulle and my little denim jacket. Looking at it now..it has a fairly strong 80’s vibe to it. This caused me to take a look at my clothes in general and I’ve noticed my go-to personal style seems to be a Mennonite 80’s cross. Little House on the Prarie meets Saved By The Bell?

The show was very funny and cute, I completely enjoyed myself. Good job husband. And good job grandma, I loved these balloons!

I hope you all have birthdays as fabulous as I, and that you feel as loved as I do.

(I’ll post those video links as well)
