Birthday bests

excellent birthday box

Today is my birthday, and I'm feeling pretty spoiled! I got this wonderful box from my step-mother-in-law, who really knows how to make a fun box. She put little notes on each item, and made a funny card.

The kids came running in to wish me happy birthday as soon as I was awake, and they gave me the fancy beer steins I wanted (it's so efficient to take the kids shopping myself - I get just what I want!).

I hurried through work today, and then took myself to the shoe store. When the kids and I got home my husband was doing a bit of yard work for me, and he had gone to the farmer's market to pick up our CSA share. When I went in the kitchen to put the veggies away, they were in the rolling Reisenthel carrycruiser I've been wanting! It is the coolest shopping basket ever, and I can also use it to haul stuff to work or on picnics.

Tonight we go out with friends, and tomorrow my family comes over for dinner. It's good to indulge yourself and be indulged, at least once a year.


  1. Happy Happy day! Very cool , and I love that carry cruiser! Enjoy!

  2. Happy Birthday Sara! Have a super wonderific day!
