28 and 32

What a neat day I had yesterday!! It was my birthday and I have NEVER been treated like such a princess!!
It started off by hearing my name and the DJ talk about me on the radio, someone I know through the we got a neat little plug to the event!! Chad and the "kids" (Charli, baby, Wynston, Kasper, and CoCo) left cards for me on the counter and the kids at daycare welcomed me with a big "HAPPY BIRTHDAY", and the little 18-month old sang me happy birthday!! I was walking into work and my great friend Natalie handed me a diet mt. dew, butterfinger, and laffy-taffy! What a fun start!! When I got inside I saw that Chad's aunt Janice had dropped of a pretty pot of flowers and a muffin, what a neat and practical idea! AND - how fun to have it for breakfast!!!
A few hours into my morning I had the most beautiful pink flowers delivered to me from Charli and the baby! Chad said that he had to call them in because Charli's phone wasn't working...but I secretly think it was "his idea"!!! At work the birthday girl always gets to pick the place and they buy, so I picked Duster's Pub...yummy! While we were eating another delivery came! I got a beautiful basket of flowers from Amanda and Brad, a gorgeous rose from my friend Pam and her husband, and a fun bouquet of balloons from my newest nephew Braxton. The balloons were held down with a pineapple...which totally cracked me up!!! I love pineapple and usually try to take one if we go there for supper or something! Braxton is so smart, a great gift for me!!
I even got off work a few hours early because we had a doctors appointment. We are 32 weeks and will have an ultrasound at our next appointment in a few weeks. Maybe I will have a picture to post?! After that we went to eat at Godfathers and got ice cream!!! Like I said...I was treated like a princess ALL day!!
Then, today, a friend and her husband bought my lunch at Subway (my favorite place ever!!) to treat me for my birthday!! I said that "28" must be the magic age, because never in my life have I felt so loved, for me!! Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday, everyone made the day great!!
So, back to baby...
We have about 6-7 weeks left with not much to report in the meantime, which is good news! Charli is STILL convinced that this baby is a "little sister" which she plans on sharing everything with! Who would like to be in charge of reminding her this in about a year...and for the rest of her life!?
Hope everyone else had as good of a Cinco De Mayo as me :-)

Thank you Amanda and Brad!!

yummy Braxton, sorry I couldn't get a picture of both the pineapple AND balloons!!!

Thank you Pam and John!!

Thank you Chuck and Janice!!

Thank you Charli and Baby!

32 weeks and's great to see how dirty my bathroom mirror is. Another great feeling, seeing that my "junk in the trunk" is as big (if not bigger) than my baby bump. Pictures don't lie, FAN-TASTIC!
