Feelin' Loved

THANK YOU for ALL the wonderful birthday wishes & gifts, cards & e-cards!!! They all mean so much to me!!! I'm feelin' the LOVE ♥

I had a great birthday! It actually started the night before {get your mind outta the gutter}.

After the kids went to bed, Ben & I stayed up til 4am rocking the challenges on Rock Band 2. Ben's gettin' pretty good with those drums! Guitar is my fave!! {on medium}

Got the kids to school, then Ben & I were so tired & cold, we went back to bed. I guess rockin' out late the night before will do that to ya! hahaha

Received several fun phone calls. Our internet & phone kept turning off & on throughout the day. Darn Cox! Oh well, finally got fixed. So I missed a few calls but got some messages & emails from friends wishing me happy bday! Thanks!

Went to a late lunch at Chili's with Ben & Anson. Our waiter didn't see us for a little while, so when he finally did, he was majorly kissing up to earn his tip. It was nice to have a waiter really working for his tip. {we gave him a nice one} He also gave Anson a coupon for a free kids' meal next time we come. YAY!

Picked up the kids from school & headed to Sam's Club for some much needed groceries. There were churros & hot dogs after the shopping, but the day isn't complete without a kid meltdown. That made for a FUN ride home. NOT!

But the evening ended well because I had tickets with friends to see "The Lion King" at ASU Gammage! And some of the gals {in our big group} couldn't make it, so several ladies brought a daughter. Last minute, someone else couldn't make it, so Felicia joined me too! It was a fantastic night out! And the play was AMAZING!!! The stage, costumes, acting & singing - all PHENOMENAL!!! LOVED IT!!!

Oh, one more tidbit...I've decided to do Project365 this year. I've heard about it before, and I'd like to do it too. I REALLY wanted Becky Higgins' Kit of the Month 'Project 365' but it sold out in mere minutes. The site crashed & they had major technical difficulties, so anyway, didn't get it even though I really tried. Oh well. My Mom and I are shopping around and figuring out how to make our own cute albums to organize all our photos. In the meantime, I've started a 2nd blog to share all my photos in one place. If you want to take a peek, go HERE! {FYI-On Becky's blog, she decided to do her own album by weeks, so she started a couple days early so she would have Sun-Sat. I started early too in case I decided to go that route. Once I get my own album started, then I'll decide if I want to print my Dec 28-31st pics.}

Are you doing Project 365? If you are, I'd LOVE to see your photos too!

Sounds like a great day! My sister was one of the lucky ones to get a kit, but I've seen many people doing their own versions that are just as cute.
