So . . .
I am one year older, and hopefully wiser too. I just turned 33 this weekend.
THIRTY THREE, PEOPLE. I used to joke about “thirty something” people who could shop at Eddie Bauer (and just for the record, I had to google “Eddie Bauer” because the 12 different ways I spelled it was not recognized by me or spell check) because you had to be thirty something to shop there.
Well folks, looks like I am officially thirty something, but I still cannot bring myself to shop there!
Hannah picked out the most beautiful cake she could find. She LOVED this cake and David said there was no other cake that even came close to being as beautiful as this cake in Hannah’s opinion.
Brian called (for you new readers, that’s my twin) to wish me a happy birthday and we talked about our birthday plans over the phone. They were so similar, it was erie . . .
Me: We went to a model train show at Thanksgiving point.
Him: Took a private plane ride around San Francisco.
Me: Spent the afternoon watching Modern Family with David while the kids napped
Him: Attended the Apple convention in SF.
Me: Ate dinner with David at Rubios (they now advertise their calories on the menu . . . it was eye opening and shocking all at once!) and saw the movie, “The Tourist.”
Him: Ate dinner at the Ritz Carlton with some friends and probably a few A-listers.
See? It was like WE PLANNED THE SAME THINGS!
This is what he looks like now at the ripe age of 33:
And this is me and my family on my birthday:
I can’t get over how darling Dallin looks in the pic below . . .
And now he’d like to show you his orange . . .
And now Hannah would like to love him to pieces . . .
Where’s David you ask? He was running barefoot on the treadmill. He popped out 8 miles like it was NOTHING. Is now a good time to mention that he dropped 25 pounds recently? Yeah. I know what you’re thinking . . .WHERE DID HE HAVE 25 POUNDS TO LOSE?!
I know. My thoughts exactly. Somehow, his body found 25 pounds to drop and he is sporting a six pack and runs about 30 mile a week–barefoot of course.
David and the kids made my birthday very fun, low key, and special. I have a wonderful family, and for that I am happy I get to celebrate 72 more birthdays! (Remember that age calculator? This is how I know I have 72 more to go!)
