Melanie week....


comes to an end. Brett asked me if I have the birthday blues (you know kind of like the Christmas blues that come on the day after Christmas). My answer....YES! Now I have to wait a whole year before I get to celebrate me again! (Ok, so I am exaggerating and I sound a little self centered, but I must admit that I LOVE my birthday!) So, how did I celebrate Melanie week? The first half of my week was actually busy, busy! I had three indian costumes to sew and put together for Cameron's upcoming play (pics will soon be coming), then I found out that one of the Indians dropped out, so I really only needed to make 2 (that would have been useful information to have been given on Monday!) Thursday Brett called to wish me happy birthday eve (isn't he the cutest?!) Then the big day arrived and Brett took the day off to hang out with me, doing whatever my little hear desired, which of course was SHOPPING! which would have been fun, but after 10 minutes in Old Navy, and 10 minutes in Kohl's with Ethan my nerves were frazzled! So, to the car we went and then we were trying to decide if we should eat lunch at In-N-Out, or just take it home (remember we had Ethan with us) We decided to attempt lunch there. We ordered, sat down to eat and 5 minutes into lunch, Ethan was done with his Bruger King nuggets and decided to chuck them over the side of the booth at unsuspecting In-N-Out patrons because he was mad that I wouldn't let him down. So we wolfed down our food and went home to pack for our weekend trip to Napa. Yeah! After the boys got home from school, we were off! Napa was great! Brett and I went to my favorite Mexican restaurant there...ALONE! It was great and then we went back to Kohl's to finish the shopping that we had attempted earlier...I got some cute clothes! Then back to Jed and Kathy's where the boys (with some help from Kathy and Jed) had a little surprise party waiting for me! Yummy cake, party hats and crazy glasses...what more could you ask for! More presents (thank you Jed and Kathy)! Day 2 fun breakfast at our favorite pink bakery, fun at the park, the library $5 book sale (as many books as you can stuff into a paper grocery bag for $5), more shopping with Cam and then a second night out, just Brett and I, to see Unkown (2 dates in one weekend?! Crazy! And to top it all off a 30 minute run through beautiful Napa with my father-in-law and his running friends! Aaaah! It was a great birthday weekend! Now I am exhausted and ready for 4 little boys to go to bed so that I can wrap up this weekend vegging out in front of the TV with Brett....Sounds great doesn't it! Happy 36th to me! (I'm getting old)





I will post again in a few days to show you what Brett bought me. We are waiting for it to arrive and I must say that I am pretty excited to get it!

Mom and Dad, I will post a pic of my new purse soon! Thanks to everyone for making me feel special! It was a great birthday!
