I told Thatboy that all I wanted for my birthday this year was a gift certificate for a mani/pedi and a day where I didn't have to do anything, or go anywhere. A day I could spend just working on getting the house together. Since my actual birthday was on a Monday, the hope was that I could do this the Sunday before.
Well, I got half of my wish! The day before my birthday, Thatboy sent me to our favorite local spa for the afternoon, for a mani/pedi and some quality alone time. I spent the afternoon hanging out in the hot tub, since I get plenty of pool time with Thatbaby.
The boys picked me up in time to take me to dinner. For another one of my birthday requests, a big margarita. (I may have had 2)
On the day of my actual birthday, I worked, just like any other day. And came home to a dinner I'd made the night before (so much for my day of not doing anything!) But Thatboy had another trick up his sleeve. He stopped off on his way home from work and brought cupcakes!
As for Thatbaby, he had his own special present for me. When Thatboy asked him what they should get me for my birthday, he kept insisting he wanted to get me Shrek. We have the first 3 movies, so Thatboy took him to get the last one. Thatbaby was so proud of himself as he handed me my present. "Happy Birthday mama. I got you a present," as he wrapped himself around me in a giant hug.
