Well, the whole amazing date night out with B last night didn't end up happening. I woke up yesterday a.m. feeling worse than I had on Monday (after both B and I went to the urgent care on Sunday night for fevers, ear infections and horrid sore throats (probable strep)), and I knew there was no way I could go out for dinner, especially since work ended up being one of the busiest days we've ever had. So, no steak, no champagne, no special dinner. Alas!
Instead B picked up soup from Zoup! (ehhhh......I think my homemade soups are better, to be honest) and popsicles from the grocery store, and we at dinner in our normal seats at the dinner table. SYT was in a great mood and loved playing with the ribbon that B had wrapped my gift with. And, to be completely honest, with how I was feeling, the popsicles were WAY better than steak!!
The top three parts of my day?
1. B let daycare know it was my birthday when he dropped Spence off, so they made me a birthday card complete with Spencer's feet and handprints. It is soooo adorable, and I totally cried when they gave it to me. Such a sappy mom moment!
2. The preview for Glee in two weeks shows them doing JBJ's "Livin on a Prayer". I am a HUGE Bon Jovi fan (weird?) and cannot wait to see them do this on the show.
3. My birthday gift from B was a huge surprise- a gorgeous pair of black TB Revas with the gold logo.
these as I've been talking about how we need to capture Spencer's laugh on camera (as it is just the cutest thing in the world)!
I cannot believe how amazing the leather is on these shoes and how comfy they immediately are. I can see why people have collections of these- it would be very easy to become addicted, just like I am to my Bonannos! So, thanks B! You made this sick lady's day sooo much better with such a shockingly perfect gift! I love you babe!
And, that is the story of my 33rd birthday. We're hoping to reschedule our date night in the next week or two- just have to see when the babysitter is free :)
I definitely feel better today than yesterday, though not even close to normal yet. I'm just praying that by the weekend I'll be back to normal b/c I have to do rounds at the hospital both mornings, plus it's Halloween and our church choir (which B is singing in) is doing a huge Handel piece that I have got to figure out how I am going to make it to!!!
Thank you all for the sweet birthday wishes. I definitely need them yesterday. Oh, and as soon as this darn throat starts feeling better, we are busting open a bottle of bubbly!
