After awesome celebrations on Friday and Saturday, I was pretty worn out. But, there was still one day left of this marvelous birthday weekend! On Sunday, April 29, it was also my mom's birthday. Since she had been out of town over the weekend, we arranged to celebrate both of our birthdays together as a family that evening. Since the plan was to get together at my place, I had to spend some serious time cleaning up on Sunday. While this was a little bit of a chore, it was nice to enjoy my place perfectly clean as part of the celebration. I had the chance to look at all of the wonderful cards send by friends and family:
I even received one very special homemade card this year from my favorite five year old!
We decided to eat dinner at our favorite restaurant, The Good Earth. After dinner, we came back to my apartment to watch the season finale of our favorite show, The Good Wife. Ahhhh! Cliffhanger!!! We also enjoyed the cupcakes from Cocoa and Fig that were a gift on Friday.
Mom opened up her book and says she's excited to learn more. I hope that's true! I also opened the presents my parents had brought for me:
And then there was the big one, the birthday present I really, really wanted! Dream come true!
All in all, this was a terrific birthday. I couldn't have asked for anything better!
