I had a nice day yesterday. I played with the babies in the morning and evening. Brent took half a day, came home and sent me for a pedicure with two of my friends who treated me. So sweet of them! I met Brent and the babies at Target afterwards. My mom took me to dinner Thursday night and Brent planned a little dinner with a few friends tonight. Thank you for all the calls, emails and texts for my birthday!

Happy Saturday :)

    I'm a little late, but wish you a very happy birthday! And I thought I was the only one who didn't enjoy pedicures. (I'm just way too ticklish to relax.)

    I love your list! Happy belated birthday! I can't remember if I told you that or not, too many social media connections to keep up with. 😉 I'm learning that my memory is not the steel trap it used to be! ha!
