Birthdays, Babies, and (no) Blogging

The last time you heard from me, I was talking about turning 30 and how I felt about it. That was a week ago. The longest amount of time I've gone without blogging since I started. And I have to admit: I missed it. I missed hearing from you all and I missed my creative outlet. I had every intention of blogging while we were in New York for the week. But then I heard this:

And I wanted to give them my full attention. Can you blame me? I don't know about you, but I can't resist cute babies who laugh. And when there are two who seem like they are laughing with each other? Even better.

Last week was one for the books. Monday was one of the best birthdays I've ever had. I ate cake twice (and again on Tuesday). My sister organized a surprise blog party with some of my favorite bloggers (thank you all again, you seriously made my day... yes Em, including you). My LoLo took me to dinner at a sushi buffet and then surprised me with a very special present...it started with this card. It made me think of Michelle from Mish Lovin' Life!

He loves enhancing cards with his art...lol
Then...I looked behind my seat and saw this:

So I opened it and saw this:

Which I then opened and saw this:

Last year, he told me I could have a puppy or an iPad. Obviously, I chose Bronx. But this year, my LoLo bought me an iPad!! He knew I wanted one for a long time and he finally got it for me. I love it!

I had such a fun trip to visit my family in New York, but I'm also happy to be home and back to blogging. I missed you!! Come back tomorrow for more birthdays, babies, and finally, more blogging.


Oh hello, Love said...

Those little kicking legs and giggles! I can't wait to show Adrian. He's gonna love it!

Sandra said...

What a great present! Welcome back!

Katie Price said...

Awesome!! You are going to love it! I treasure my time laying in bed in the morning, checking up on fun things on the iPad before hitting the real work on the computer. :)

Ohhhh I'm so glad you had a wonderful birthweek!! I was just wondering last night what I did in life before I had an iPad! So silly but it's my favorite toy :)

awww, so sweet that you chose Bronx over the iPad last year ... you totally deserve that thing this year!! Dan has one and I steal it all the time. I'm so glad you had an awesome birthday and glad you're back!
