This past week was my birthday week, and since I pretty much document most everything anyway, I thought I'd add some descriptions. Two things, first, the only camera I own is on my phone which has no flash, so... that explains the quality of the pictures and second, I am obsessed with Instagram now, so there are some of those thrown in.
This year, I found this website that lists all the places around that give you free stuff on your birthday. It was kinda fun getting free stuff, it just made it a little bit more special!
|Crayon Art- I've seen this around Pinterest for about a year now, and I was dying to try it! With the heatwave this week, the girls and I have been doing art in the patio, while I try to keep them cool and busy. This project, was all mine! I did the melting while they napped, so when they woke up, they were really happy to see the finished product. Here is a link to a DIY Crayon Art Tutorial.|
Wednesday (My 28th Birthday)
|It is tradition in my family, since I was a kid, and now with my kids, to wake up to a candle in a cupcake while everyone sings Happy Birthday. On top of that amazing way to wake up once a year, that morning we received our first delivery of organic fruits and veggies! The company is called Farm Fresh To You, they deliver locally grown organic fruits and veggies to your doorstep for a very affordable price. All of the veggies and fruits are clean and ripe and sweet, and its really cool, I totally recommend the service.|
|My girls and I on our way out for my birthday. One day, there will be a picture of the three of us, all looking at the camera, with smiles... One day.|
|We visited Sprinkles in Los Angeles for my free birthday cupcake! This place is pretty well known, for their tasty cupcakes and their cupcake ATM! Yes, at any hour of the night you can walk right up to a machine and get a cupcake, pretty cool! (BTW... If you sign up for their mailing list, you get a free cupcake on your birthday! )|
| My little Lexie.|
Anytime we are out, you can bet that she will be wearing her sunglasses and will probably be asleep. This is a picture of both.
|Mark and I on our way out to dinner for my birthday. We like to go to Black Angus on our birthdays where if you sign up, you get a free steak dinner and dessert! I had lobster! How can you pass up free? Not me!|
|We are in the middle of a heatwave, which means daddy swimming in the kiddie pool. Here, Mark is trying to teach Lacey how to plug her nose to go under the water.|
|Friday night we went out to dinner for my birthday, with my parents. We go to this restaurant called Momotaro in Burbank, CA. They have the best Japanese food for such a good price. If ever you go there, I recommend getting the boat.|
|Kids in the pool, mommy getting a tan :)|
|The perfect way to round out a pretty busy birthday week is snuggling on the couch, in the air conditioning, with calm kids, watching Phineas and Ferb. Ahhh..|
