Happy birthday to me!  I turned the big double-tres on Wednesday.  Thirty-three *sounds* pretty old, but honestly, I still feel like an 18 year old (minus the few wrinkles and aching back).
This picture wasn't from my birthday, but I just really like it.  I took it a few weeks ago so I basically look the same, although my hair is blonder now.  Anywho....back to my birthday.

So I woke up and went to a local park here in Collierville called Johnson Park.  There is a fabulous trail that I've started running there and it makes me feel like Katniss in The Hunger Games because a large portion of the trail is through woods.  Love it.

Then, I came home and drank my coffee and watched these happy little bunnies with my girls:

Gotta love that silly Max.  For some reason Lexi and Lyla thought we were going to a birthday party for me today.  They were a little disappointed that there was no party but they decided they needed to blow some bubbles for me!

Yes, Lexi is wearing a princess dress and an upside down crown.  This is what happens when you let your creative 3 year olds dress themselves.

Then it was time for the best part of the day....Muddy's Cupcakes!  If you've never been and you live in the Memphis area, shame on you.  Best cupcakes hands down.  We got Prozac, Plain Jane, Cookies n cream, and Monkey Around.
We ate at Panera, and as usual, were asked 4 times if Lexi and Lyla were twins.  I mean, come on people!  I don't have to dress them the same for them to be twins!  Oh and thanks Mr. Creepy Man for making weird winking faces at Lexi.

When we got home we chilled for a little while and then I took the girls on a short walk while Josh worked on our vegetable garden. Then it was time for more food!  Josh and I had gone to Bangkok Alley last night for a special grown up birthday dinner so tonight I wanted a good family favorite:  Mama Mia's Pizza!  This is another Memphis Must if you live here or are visiting.  It's another local joint and their pizza is amazing.  Plus right now they are donating 13% to a local family that has a son battling cancer.  Very inspiring.
And that was my birthday!  It was a great day, made special by all the texts, calls, and facebook messages from the many friends I've made along this journey of life.  I'm a blessed girl, that's for sure.  Or should I say I'm a blessed woman?  Nah, I'm still a girl at heart :)

Now for the birthday loot...Let's just say this mama is S.P.O.I.L.E.D.

I got the Ipad 3 when it first came out for an early birthday gift.

Wolfgang Puck pretty!
Charm White Primrose Path
Charm Purse PCZ
2 new Pandora charms
Classic 301 image
Toms Sunglasses...I get new sunglasses, a child in need gets glasses.  Win-Win.

I think that's it.  Told you I got spoiled!
