Many of you know that I'm currently
Ok, now back to my birthday morning... I woke up this morning and turned on my computer. I noticed right away that my desktop picture had been changed to this:
I know, I know, I flipped out and just about passed out... though I tried to keep it together so my husband wouldn't know just how obsessed I am with this... though I think he might already know.
Anyway, there was also a video window open on my desktop, so I pushed play, and I saw this...
Then my sweet boys gave me their handmade cards. Then Marshall gave me my first gift, which was this....
I couldn't believe my eyes! After all the teasing and the eye rolling, and he actually went out and bought this for me! Funny side story... he told me that when he was at Hot Topic, picking out this Twilight shirt, the sales lady came right up to Marshall and said to him, "Team Edward or Team Jacob???". And Marshall looked back at her with a stunned look on his face and said... "Uh, this is for my wife."
Oh, and you know I totally wore this shirt for my birthday!
Then Marshall excused himself and came back with a dozen purple roses...
And apparently my BIG gift was this beautiful purple Coach purse, with a matching purple purse charm.
We went to lunch at my favorite Mexican Restaurant. After all, my birthday is also Mexican Independence Day. So I had a Dos Equis (or two) to celebrate both occasions.
Then Marshall took me somewhere I've always wanted to go... to Buffy Summer's house in
And since we were just three blocks away, we drove on over to Sunnydale High School. (where Buffy and her friends went to high school... which is really Torrance High School)
And in case you thought that was a lot of spoiling and pampering, Marshall also sent me to a fancy schmancy spa where I had an hour deep tissue massage by "Sascha from Russia". Did I mention Sascha is a bodybuilder? She's awesome, and I have no knots in my shoulders anymore, but I'm going to be bruised for a few days. After the massage, I had a whirlpool seaweed and juniper oil bath... where the bath attendant put cucumber slices on my eyes, covered by a wet washcloth, and she gave me water to drink, and fresh sliced fruit on ice. And she kept my robe in the sauna, so when the bath was over, she handed me my steaming hot robe. Awesome!
For dinner we stayed in, ordered pizza and watched the first Harry Potter movie as a family.
After the kids were in bed, Marshall and I cuddled on the couch and watched an old Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode.
All this Twilight, Harry Potter and Buffy stuff might not be for everyone, but for me it was just PERFECT. Did I mention Marshall even wore a purple shirt for my birthday? (yes, real men wear purple) I am one lucky woman, and I know it.
Thank you all for your birthday wishes!
