it was my birthday last week
my birthday isn't celebrated with a lot of fanfare
and that's just the way i like it
on my wish list this year were just two things:
a clean house from top to bottom
and for my mom to cook me my favorite foods for dinner
well i got all that plus a few extra goodies sprinkled in between
i woke up to breakfast in bed
unbeknownst to me, zoe had been planning my breakfast in bed for a few days
she had told my hubs her plans because
"i need help cooking because i'm only 5 and i don't know how to cook."
my hubs said that she went downstairs to wake him
(he had fallen asleep on the couch)
and told him that it was 7:15 a.m and that he had to get up to start cooking
if you know my hubs, he is so not a morning person
so zoe waited patiently for fifteen minutes before trying to wake him again
"hurry daddy! mommy always wakes up early!"
finally after much cajoling from zoe, he got up to make my breakfast
on the menu:
scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, nutella toast and orange juice
i wasn't the only one that enjoyed breakfast in bed!
can you believe this is the first time i have ever had breakfast in bed?!
when i asked zoe how she came up with the idea,
she told me she saw it on a tv commercial... haha!
after breakfast i was allowed to open my gift
which was a fuji instax mini camera!
i have been coveting this little camera for a while so i was a happy girl
after breakfast we got dressed
we stopped at the bakery/deli for some sandwiches and macarons
and headed to the park for a birthday picnic
the girls had a blast running around the park
on the way home we stopped at our favorite gelato place for some gelato
after we had our fill of yummy gelato we headed to my parents place
my mom had made all my favorite foods for dinner
and what's a birthday without cake?
my dad picked mine out
and now that i'm a mom, i have to share my birthday wish with two little girls
but i don't mind
and after dinner we headed home because we had a big day the next day
my zoe was turning six! yep! her birthday is the day right after mine!
and she had an extra special birthday this year!
make sure you come back later this week to see how we celebrated!
