Bountiful Birthday

Pete and I were driving home from work today and I said “Oh I hope my package didn’t get wet!” (it rained today here) and pete said “What Package?” I said “My Birthday Package from Lisanne, I have been tracking it and it was left this morning.” he replyed, with a stuck out lip “My Friends never send me packages, you are always getting mail!” I replyed “Well mybe if you sent packages to them, or how about those cards you are always making fun of me for, then maybe they will show you some love!” LOL So I open up my package that was on the prch and dry as a bone and it was full of awesome birthday surprises! All from LUSH. I got a Blackberry Bath Bomb(I am running Bathwater right now to use this one!), A Sakura Bath Bomb, A Gratuious Violets Bar of Soap, a Bathos Bubble Bar, a Something Wicked This Way Come Bath Melt and a free sample of Figs and Leaves Soap & 17 Cherry Tree Lane Soap! Isn’t this great! Thank you Lisanne, so very much! Lisanne is the only person I know who loves Baths more then me!

New House, New State, Same Great Friends

Last night we went to see Nikki & Jason’s new house. It is weird having my oldest friend live so far away from me. We have always been with in 10 minutes of each other, with about 4 of those years only a hall way away (when we were roommates). I miss Nikki, It’s weird, we have grown apart a tiny bit since she has gotten married and had a baby, but we are still very close. But now we aren’t so close, about 60 miles away! It is only right over the MD/PA line, but seems so far. Her house is amazing, so pretty and already well on it’s way to decorated greatly. I forgot to take pictures as I was a bit drawn to little miss Money (AKA Ryleah)! This first picture is the only “House Shot” and the second is a Picture of Miss Ryleah herself!

Birthday Goodies

I got so many great Birthday Presents this year. My best gift of course was Shannon’s visit. I also got a gold chain from my Dad, scene it the Disney version from my sister and Brother in Law, along with a Disney CD and a Pretty purple Drink pitcher, I received my Mickey flowers from Pete along with two new purses and the trip to Atlantic City, I got a great surprise delivery from Susan, it included the best pen ever, a little lamp and a sparkley little butterfly, also in the box was a card that almost made me cry, Susan is a great girl! Shannon brought with her awesome goodies, She brought the coolest thing to hang your purse from the table at recurrent, a Lamp Berger (LOVE IT) and a hand painted flip flop to hang in my Bathroom along with a great sign about friends. She is the best, I love her so much! I have a package en route from Lisanne, that I am soo excited about. I also got lots of great cards and well wishes! I am sad to see my Birthday end and to think it won’t be here for another year! Here are a few pictures of my Favorite Gifts. The Lamp Berger is shown here in blue, but of course mine is Purple!

I miss you

Today at 10:30am marked 3 years with out my mom. She died on May 23, 2003. It seems like so long ago and like it was yesterday all at the same time. I remember holding her hand as she took her last breath and thinking that this is it. That all her pain is over and that I will never hear her sweet voice again. I will never feel her arms around me again. I think back to three years ago, I lived in a different house, had a different hair style, drove a different car, had a different job, had a different boyfriend. I think about how much has changed in my life and how much I miss my mom. I think about how much she has missed out on. How much growing and changing I have done without her, I think about how much more will happen in years to come. I wish more then anything in this world that she was here today, everyday. I miss her more then I ever thought possible. She was truly the greatest Mother and friend in the world! At her funeral people came up to me and said don’t worry it will get easier……DO NOT ever say this to anyone who has lost a loved one. It never ever gets easier, you just learn to deal with it differently. I miss her as much today as I did 3 years ago. It hurts just as bad. I know she is in a better place and that she is watching down on me and Laura and my Dad. Even knowing all these things doesn’t change how sad I am today.

Going Home

I was so sad to see Shannon walk into the airport this evening. I had such a wonderful weekend with her here, I really wish we lived closer together. I can not thank her enough for this trip, this Birthday Surprise. It was so wonderful! After I took her to the Airport Pete and I went to see the Di Vinci Code. It was a Great movie! I couldn’t get into the book, but now I may give it a second shot! The movie was long, like 2.5 hours and we just got home at like 11:00pm! I will be tired come tommorrow!

Atlantic City!

Last night after Pete got off of work we drove up to Atlantic City, NJ. What a great trip. We spend hours in the car singing along to Pete’s iPod to pass the time. We check into our hotel, the Comfort Inn, and then hit the casino. We were so close, it was a great location for a Hotel! We played a bit in Bally’s and walked on the boardwalk. Then we had a late dinner at 2:00am at Johnny Rocket’s! It was almost 4:00am by the time we crashed out in the hotel. This morning I woke up and jumped right into the HUGE bathtub for a hour long soak! Talk about relaxing. I want to stay at this hotel again just for the tub! After we checked out we walked on the boardwalk some. I got two great (imitation) Coach bags and a wristlet for my camera. I also got a magnet. Then we headed to the Tropicana. It was very Vegas like! We had lunch at a great Cuban place and then checked out some of the stores. Finally made it to the casino and I played a bit of roulette. Pete was so generous all weekend. He bought me anything I wanted and handed out gambling money too! I walked away a winner at the roulette table and then found the a hot slot machine. I walked away from that one a winner too! Shannon didn’t do badly either.
After that we headed home to Baltimore. Pete was all girled out and sent us on to the May Fest Carnival at my elementary school. That was nice and we gambled there a little more playing the money wheel! I called Pete to let him know we were heading to the dinner for a bite to eat and of course he wanted to go so I picked him up and then the tree of us went for another late night dinner. Gosh this weekend has been wonderful and it isn’t over yet!

Birthday Surprises

Last night we were going out to dinner. I thought it was going to be myself, Pete, my Dad, Laura & Brandon. We were sitting at the table and my Dad and Laura walk in, they told me Brandon was downstairs using the restroom. Well then in walks SHANNON. She had been conspiring with my sister and Pete for Months to pull off the perfect birthday surprise! I was so surprised and excited. I have the very best people in my life. What a great surprise. We have a lot of great things planned for the weekend. Today we are getting pedicures and going to do some shopping. It is so great to have Shannon here! I love her so much and will have a great Birthday, today with her here with me!
