happy birthday to me!

Yesterday was my 28th birthday. I had such a great day. It started with Willa sleeping in until 7. We woke up and talked to Matt as he got ready for work. Then we went back to bed and slept another 2 hours. So nice.

We met a few friends at the library for story time at 10:30. Afterwards, my friend and her two little girls came over for lunch. The ducks, turtles, and fish showed up on cue and we fed them bread and worms. I love feeding the animals from our deck. I think I enjoy it more than the kiddos. :)

Willa took a great nap in the afternoon, and I had some fabulous phone conversations with friends and family. Matt came home from work early with two bouquets of beautiful flowers and a DVD.

Matt cooked a yum-o dinner of grilled pork chops, my mom's cheese potatoes, and steamed broccoli and cauliflower. So good!!! He cleaned up the kitchen while I put Willa to bed.

Instead of watching the DVD, we watched the Office premier (loved it) and ate cake and ice cream. Matt baked the cake to perfection. I got lots of cards, texts, emails, facebook messages, and phone calls. Thank you! Thank you! It was a fabulous day.
