47th Birthday

This weekend I celebrated my 47th birthday. Yes, it was a weekend long celebration. An amazing celebration. Full of amazing!

It started Friday morning. We had our usual donuts and egg sandwiches from Dunkin Donuts.

Then I opened presents. I got this Instant Pot from my sister, which amazingly has SEVEN different functions. It amazes me that one thing can be a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker and warmer!

That’s as amazing as someone who can be an all in one cook, chauffeur, maid, tutor, playmate, family therapist and babysitter.

I’m JOKING! The weekend is over, so technically I shouldn’t be sitting here on a Monday morning, still celebrating me. Did you see what I just did? I just rolled this weekend celebration of me into next week. Does that mean I can eat some more birthday cake now?

Okay back to opening presents. Besides the Instant Pot, I also got lots of cards with money. The kids managed to find yet another new card that joked about farts and poop. I’m also amazed at how many variations of fart and poop birthday cards are out there.

Once we shuttled all the kids and the hubby to school and work, Mom and I went and got massages from my favorite reflexology place, Fit Foot.

Then, I wanted to take Mom to see my friend Tami’s new restaurant location. She has opened another Goddess and the Baker (https://www.goddessandthebaker.com/) in River North.

When I got there, Tami was there. She bought my mother and me lunch AND gave us a rainbow cake to bring home! The level of generosity was, well it was amazing.

That night we ate out again, this time at Shine. (https://www.shinerestaurant.com/home.htm). More birthday celebration! Amazing!

Then, back home to make some wishes and eat some cake.

The next night, we had a sitter. Adam and I went to a holiday party with the most amazing, diverse group of people. We also had our own amazing date night afterwards.

Sunday, I got another birthday treat. Adam very generously bought us all tickets see the Blue Man group.

What did the kids think about the show? It was amazing.
