It’s my party…

So, yesterday was my 26th birthday. I’m officially on the fast track to 30 but, in the whole scheme of things, the 30’s are the new 20’s, so really, it’s like I’m only 16. But without all the worrying of who’s going to take me on my first date to see Titanic…for the 5th time. Don’t lie; I know that you all spent a good portion of your paycheck watching this movie 12 times in the theater. ‘Cause there is nothing like watching Leonardo DiCaprio win over Kate Winslet’s heart on a sinking ship!

I was feeling pretty good about my 26th birthday until my little niece called to give me birthday wishes. When I told her how old I was she said, “Whoa…that’s old.” To make it worse the next question she asked was what I was going to do for my birthday. I said that I was going to go out for dinner with Spencer. When she didn’t say anything in return I asked her if that sounded fun. She responded, “Not really.” Maddie, next birthday I expect you to decorate my front room, bake me a cake, and jump out from behind the couch and scream happy birthday. Then we will really party!

I really did have a good birthday though.

Brynlee and I meet Spencer for lunch at Bouillon Soup. Bouillon Soup is the Seinfeld Soup Nazi of my town. It is my favorite lunch time restaurant. If you have never eaten at Bouillon Soup I suggest you make plans to come visit me and eat lunch there. My favorite is the grilled pesto veggie sandwich with Hungarian mushroom soup. Delicious! Although, yesterday I ventured out and tried a different soup.

That night I got to open up the presents that Spencer had beautifully wrapped in that mornings newspaper. I tried to rip the paper carefully since I was deprived of my morning reading of Dear Abby, but Brynlee was too excited and had them all opened before I had a chance to save my daily reading. Spence spoiled me rotten with gifts and due to my new picture printer I now have no excuse for not printing off my pictures!
 My little sister volunteered to watch Brynlee for the evening, and we of course couldn’t turn her down. But don’t feel bad for Brynlee, Katie spoiled her rotten taking her to the park, the swings and over to the gas station to get a treat. Thanks Kate, you’re the best! And in the mean time Spence and I got to have a enjoyable meal at Red Lobster, without anyone climbing on our laps, spilling water down the front of us, or throwing a fit because she had changed her mind and no longer wanted chicken nuggets, but a corndog.

After Red Lobster we spent the rest of our babysitting time looking for a swing set for Brynlee because we live on the edge. Washing towels, taking out the trash, heating up mac-and-cheese, playing dolls, and searching out the perfect swing set for our two year old on my 26th birthday. It’s really just a matter of time before I have my own MTV reality show.

I have to thank all the friends and family that called, emailed and sent cards wishing me a happy birthday. It really did make my day that so many people remembered. Plus, you can never hear Happy Birthday sung over the phone to many times. I have some seriously talented friends and family! Let me just say, so far, 26 totally rocks.

You are only 26? You seem so much older (mature wise of course).

So I may venture up there someday and go to lunch with you. Soup and sandwiches are my favorite, and those look good!

And I don't know why you are whining about your kid at the resturant. Our kids never acted out like that. Perfect little angels when we take them out (ha ha rolling on the floor now because I am soooo funny)!

Oh yeah, if I was a true friend I would have remebered that on your birthday a few years ago, you came to rescue me from Lewiston, Id. welll, I'm just not good at dates so although I remember you have a birthday, I just don't know when it is. (since it changed every year huh.) well happy belated birthday!!! Love you!

So once again, your house is BEAUTIFUL! ou are quite the decorator. Also, Katie is way too pretty, and grown up! We're allowed to be 26 but she should still be 11. Isn't it funny how things like, picking out a swing set for your child's birthday, can be fun for yours? ...maybe that's what makes us old..or just good moms. :) glad you had a great birthday! love ya!

Thanks again for all the birthday wishes. You are all so sweet.

Sarah- Does the fact that I dress up as spongebob make me seem more mature? Or is is that I laugh out loud everytime Brynlee says the word toot?

Jami- You and Paula...both plain crazy!!

Ains- You are invited down ANY time!! I would love it if you stopped by.

In fact any of you are invited! I love guests!
