Birthday things.

GAH! Guys! This month is flying by and I feel like I have been crazy busy and doing nothing at the same time. Do you get that way?

NYE at our house was super low key this year. We watched movies, made fancy appetizers and everyone was in bed by 10:30. Yippee! I didn't mind one bit to tell ya the truth. I have done my fair share of Vegas NYE. More than my fair share if I am completely honest and even then, there were years that I was home by myself while my friends went out in the craziness. It just isn't that important to me. Another day. Another crazy excuse to act a fool.

My birthday is January 5. I was spoiled so many days and ways. Friday night, the hub took us to the drive in. We saw The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. It was ok. Maybe a B- or C. It was sweet but it was kind of slow in many places.

Saturday...well, I cannot remember...I don't think anything spectacular happened... it was likely just a fun day of family and playing ball. Sunday, my birthday day, I woke up to cards and gifts. My honey knows me so well. Pedicure and hair gift cards. Hallelujah because they both need Jesus. My mom got me a cast iron skillet that I have been eyeing. We went to dinner at Famous Dave's with some friends and then walked over to Cheesecake Factory for to-go cheesecake. "Someone" enjoyed the banana cheesecake more than anything else.

(I am having a hard time uploading pics..just me?)

Monday night, I went line dancing. Party continued. Tuesday night, my friends took me to Rio Café for Mexican food and to The Mad Platter for pottery painting. I have always wanted to paint pottery, never done it. It was so much fun. We plan to go again in a few weeks. The prices were so reasonable and the shop is darling. If you are in AZ, you def. should check it out.

Wednesday the party continued. Who am I? A celeb? Right? I do not know. HA. My sweetie had a massage booked for me. Relaxation to the max. Ahhhh.

Now? Back to life. Back to reality. Cinderella has lots to do!
