Birthday Favorites

It's been a fun birthday week!  We've got date night this weekend and no big plans.  The weather has been great and I felt super loved all week long.  It's amazing how phone calls, snail mail, packages and special things can make a girl feel so special.

Birthday Favorites:

Plain cheesecake with all the toppings.  My favorite topping is Hershey syrup and mini Reeses.  Bonus: The kids don't love cheesecake so I didn't have to share :)

I got a treadmill and new workout clothes for my birthday!  New Nikes, leopard and floral yoga pants.  I've been wanting one so I could have an indoor workout option for the cold months at home.  I am already loving how easy it is to get in a quick workout while the baby naps.  Kevin worked super hard to make this happen.  Treadmills are heavy!

We aren't really taking the kids out and about to stores much so they scoped out my Amazon wish list.  They got me some really fun stuff :)

Birthday roses from Kev.  From the grocery store :)

My friends had personalized sugar cookies made for me and gifted me the prettiest lantern filled with succulents.  I loved it!

Lots of time at home in our pjs since both kids are home from school right now.  One perk of school going virtual is that we don't have to set alarm clocks right now.

Leo and I got to run some errands to try to get all the things done before school got cancelled.  He's the best little side kick.

The big kids worked really hard on my birthday cards this year.  They drew family pictures, wrote notes and got me this cute Three Peas in a Pod Christmas ornament.

Tons of crawling and helping me enjoy my birthday week.

My parents came for a visit last weekend.  They arrived with all of our favorite treats, gifts for everyone and we enjoyed seeing them.  We hadn't seen them in two months thanks to COVID.  It was cold any rainy for most of their visit.  We stayed indoors and snuggled kittens and kids.


A friend hosted a drive thru playgroup to their family's giant construction business.  We drove all through and then her husband did a boulder lifting demo for us.  The kids were very impressed.

We headed to the park with friends another day.  The weather was gorgeous and they introduced us to some new trails and areas of the park.

No one loves a foot rub more than Leo.

The weather was warm enough for shorts and t-shirts.

Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. What a fabulous birthday! I too love cheesecake and often ask for that instead of cake. We got a treadmill last year for Christmas and after they delivered it (outside!) we really had to brainstorm how to get it into our basement because you are right-- they are so heavy! I don't remember our old treadmill being like that.

  6. Happy birthday week! Looks like a fun celebration and yay for November birthdays!
