My Birthday and What I Got :)

Hey dolls!  So as many of you know (thank you all for the uber sweet tweets yesterday, completely made my day!), yesterday was my birthday.  I decided to spoil myself - for free! - and treated myself to a day off of work and did nothing but craft, watch tv, and read magazines.  Seriously, it was heaven!  And something I need to do more often.  I love to try and take pics with my kiddos on my day, so I forced them to stand in front of our haunted fireplace with me :)
Little man refused to stop making faces, so he was voted off the island.
Me and my princess!!!
Ahhh yes that is me, and I will not have any other cake than a Carvel Ice Cream cake for my birthday.  Not a Baskin Robbins, not a DQ, Car-friggen-vel.  Mmmmm!  And yes, that is two 3s on my cake.  Eeeek, I'm 33!!
Aaaand the goodies!  So I'll admit, I'm the breadwinner in our relationship.  So I made a list of things for my husband to get me that were mostly all under $25, so that he could get me a few things.  And he did soooo well!!!  I've wanted a steamer for so long because I cannot STAND ironing.  I detest the iron.  I would rather pay the dry cleaners to press my things (and I've been known to do that).  Which epitomizes laziness. Or someone who hates ironing.  I digress.  I also loooove socks.  It's friggen cold in Colorado in the winter, and as such, as soon as I get home, I put on big fuzzy socks and wear them around the house and sleep in them.  My feet are always freezing, idk why.  So the kiddos picked out these for me :)  Finally, they got me Chanel Peridot nail polish, that I've been dying for!, and Kat Von D foiled love lipstick in F.T.W., from Sephora.  I'm in love with this, it's a gorgeous wicked metallic cranberry that has some serious staying power.  Highly recommend!
We also went out to dinner, at Chilis. It's the kids favorite restaurant, and I love margaritas, so it worked!  Plus, we are on a budget, so The Melting Pot or Sullivans is definitely out of the question.  Funniest thing of the night, JT asked me what I was drinking.  I responded a marrrrgarrrrita!  He says, "What's a vodkarita?"  Ok.  So ignore the fact that my son hears me say vodka, and knows what vodka is (I do love vodka, and usually my answer to his question is vooodka), but ummm I think my son just invented my new signature drink.  I'm thinking cherry vodka mixed into a margarita.... cherry limeade, anyone?

So what do you think?  I think they did great!!  I had a fantastic birthday, and -gulp- am nervous excited to see what 33 holds for me!
