After a wonderful weekend, the girls left (sadly), and then it was family birthday time! Houston has had TORRENTIAL downpours, and our streets (and the Hylands' house!) have been flooded. The rain did NOT stop the Moriarty Family from celebrating, thought... We went to Taste of Texas with the parents, Grammy (yay for being in from Wisconsin during this time!), Scott and Michelle (glad Scott made it in!), and Kiki (yay for being in from Austin for all the fun!). It was SOOOO good and fun to be with them for pre-birthday fun!
Last night I met Mom, Michelle, and Scott at T'afia (soooo good if you haven't been!) for Michelle's birthday dinner. It was the PERFECT day to sit on the patio together! We celebrated birthdays there, and then I stopped at my favorite place in the world on my way home to Anthony- BERRIPOP! Berripop actually deserves a story of it's own, so I will save that for another day... mmmmm.....
I was woken up at 2:15 this morning by Anthony saying, "It's your birthday, babe! Happy Birthday!" It was sooooo sweet and I was SOOOOO excited I ALMOST couldn't fall back to sleep! Almost. I came to school this morning and my sweet kids brought me some wonderful things- candy, teddy bears, flowers, and LOTS of homemade cards- my fave!
Thanks to everyone already for the wonderful wishes! You are all wonderful! I LOVE birthdays and can't wait to see what the rest of the day has in store!!!
