One thing that Joe did this year that I thought was very fun, was talk to the boys and have them each pick out something specific that they wanted to give me. He didn't prompt them or give them ideas. Sam wanted to get me lipstick and Andrew choose and shiny necklace. I thought it was very special and I really appreciated it.
After the presents, we dropped the kids off at my parents and went out for breakfast and shopping. Joe really dislikes shopping, so spending three hours shopping was a HUGE deal.
Later on that night, Danny and Jessi came and babysat for us while we out to dinner with some friends. It was a fun evening, we don't go out with friends often enough so that made it especially fun! We came home and watched a movie (some sort of chick flick, I think, can't remember now). It was a fun day and I felt spoiled, thanks honey!
One other funny thing that I thought I'd mention. For several weeks leading up to and after my birthday the kids made it a point to tell EVERYONE that we talked to that I was turning/just turned 30. We're talking about random people at the park, grocery store employees, people at church...basically anyone they talked to. Yep, that was fun, I got a kick out of it and they were so excited to tell people!
