So, yesterday was a milestone. I turned the big 29. Facing my last year in my twenties has been…not necessarily depressing…but disconcerting at least. I am not looking forward to my next birthday. Of course, it didn’t help that everyone was telling me I’d be middle-aged next year. I don’t think so!!!
Anyway, I got some nice gifts last night at my birthday party. Lasagna, garlic bread (YUM) and birthday cake went down very nicely, then the unwrapping commenced. I had lots of help as my daughter, niece, and nephew just knew I couldn’t open them alone. Here’s what I got:
The Faerie Path by Frewin Jones, a new book, which I am not sure how they got it as Amazon says it doesn’t come out til Feb 6!! Was SO excited to see it!
A $30 B&N Gift card!! Yay I have $60 to blow on my next trip! Which may be today if I can find the energy!!!
The Illusionist, can’t wait to see this one!
Mirrormask because I love me some Neil Gaiman!
The Black Dahlia (the movie, not the book) and been wanting to see it too.
Some comfy new Sketchers and socks. I swear I don’t feel like I’m wearing shoes! I love them!
A very soft, snuggly sweater.
Some new, bigger jammas for my growing belly and flip flops. I love flip flops!!!
A new pocketbook with lotions from Bath and Body. Hmm….smells so good!
And, as usual, I ordered a few books for myself. From The Book Depository I ordered:
The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly
WInter Rose by Jennifer Donnelly
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
And, since Andi got me hooked on the Vampire Diaries I ordered the other 3 in that set. All in all a marvelous day.
Best present of all, the day before I had my first OB appointment and everything looks good. I’m growing in all the right places! Feb 7 I go for another ultrasound just to give me peace of mind. Due date is September 7.
