Happy Birthday…to me!!!

The day started out fantastic!  The girls and I got up at 4 A.M. and watched the Royal Wedding.  We had donuts, strawberries, and juice.

The Lt. came home from work about 130P.M. and we did cake & ice cream and presents. How blessed am I? The girls and the Lt. spoiled me so.

Mikayla made me a card that was short and sweet and to the point. It read “Happy Birthday! Love you. You are 33.”  Too cute! She gave me a bookmark with a digital timer on it.

Montana picked out a cookbook for me.  She is already pointing out which meals she wants made.  Hmm…there may have been a secret agenda with the book, but it’s fine I love to cook for family.

McKenzie (with the help of Daddy) picked out a sweet camera strap from SewTamz Designs.  It is so comfortable and soft and I love the pattern too.

Marie choose a snazzy watch necklace from her favorite store, Forever 21 for me. It is so cute and just the right size.

Madison picked out a gift card to Barnes and Noble. Have I ever told you how much I love gift cards to the bookstore? I already have books in my cart so they will be on their way for next week.

The Lt. surprised me big time with a trip to the upcoming HEAV Homeschool Conference, WaaHoo!!! I am very excited to go, especially since it looked like I wasn’t going to be able to make it again! This will be my first conference, so I have a lot of planning to do so that I stay within my budget.  Have any conference tips?  Any do’s and don’ts? I would love to hear!

Here’s to a great year!
