Birthday recap

Thank you to Denise for my sweet birthday email and card and virtual flowers and chocolates, that was all so very precious, and made for a special start to my birthday. My sister, Crystal, also sent me a sweet card and birthday wishes, that made my day even more better and then my sister, Tammy, gave me a Martha Stewart DVD and a candle that smells really yummy! And 200 minutes with Martha Stewart ideas and recipes is my idea of heaven on earth! Claire & I have already watched the entire thing and I kid you not, her reaction upon seeing a standing rib roast come out of the oven? "Oh, Mama, so pitty, yum!" And her favorite part of the DVD is when Martha makes confectionary mushrooms, she is fascinated with those! So, our new nickname for Claire is "Martha". She wears it proudly.

Back to my birthday, my Mom and Dad got me a pedicure set and some money to buy a maternity outfit, VERY appreciated! Then, Claire sang "Happy birthday" to mama with some "Jesus Loves Me" thrown in. It was really cute. :o)

Charlie took us out for Mexican food on Wednesday night for my birthday to the new Mexican restaurant that Papa Pablanos just bought and totally renovated. IF you have never been to a Papa's, if you visit Oklahoma or Arkansas, any time soon, you must have their Mexican food. It is SO wonderful and authentic. THE BEST!

So, that was my great birthday and now I am 29. Which oddly enough is not bothering me at all. I haven't even really thought about it all that much. So, thank you for all the birthday wishes(I love all of you so much) and I have some pictures to post but I will have to do it on my Mom's computer because mine is almost ready for the computer cemetery! So, maybe later today or tomorrow. For now, I am off to clean house and watch more "Martha Stewart" DVD's !!!! :o)


Love and Prayers, Julie
