My Birthday Weekend

I gotta' say as far as husbands go Dan is pretty much at the top of the list in way of making me feel loved all year long but this weekend was really needed. Close to home, not complicated and lots of sunshine. We stayed at the Hilton Regency Hotel in New Port Beach and it was ooohhh so relaxing. We shopped a little, soaked in the spa a little and ate ALLOT! :) We were walking on the pier last night after dinner enjoying the sights and sounds and just in time for me to catch this beautiful shot.
Our good friends went away with us to help us celebrate and that made it extra special.

My mom kept the girls and from what I can tell a fun time was had by all. I think the torture to her was kept to a minimum at least from what she is telling me. She did mention to me that she was T-I-R-E-D!! He,heee welcome to my world! :)
When we got home we were greeted by happy, soaking wet kids who were playing outside in the water, a homemade cake and the sidewalk decorated with birthday wishes all the way to the door. So stinkin' cute! Oh and my mom had made us dinner so I could end my weekend on a high note.

Seriously, I LOVE birthdays; mine, yours, every ones! Thank to everyone who called me this morning and sent cards, truly I was blessed by your thoughtfulness. Thank you also mom for letting me get away and not have to worry about the girls. It was so relaxing. Are you busy same time next year cause I will need another break by then? :) Have a great night everyone!

I have thought about you lots and am so glad you had a great weekend! I didn't get you called, we were at Hume for our Church's Women's retreat, but I woke up thinking about you. I praise God for you and the woman you are and the example of Christ you are to me. I love you!!!!
