We are getting older!

Woot woot! I turned 38 on Thursday! Nicholas and I celebrated with a night out last Saturday just us. Thor did not disappoint! Then I had a fun day with Nicholas making me a birthday cake and setting out presents for me to open in the morning. I also snuck in brunch with a friend! Nicholas, the kids, and our families showered me with cards and love and gifts! I feel lucky!

And then I hosted Bunco for 14 of my neighborhood friends on Friday, which turned into an impromptu birthday party!

This is one of my favorite activities with my group! It’s always nice to put away the Legos and get out the wine glasses and flutes! Thanks to Dad and Heidi for my baker’s dozen wine glasses!

I really wish I would have taken more pictures of the roses, the food, and the party in full swing! Nicholas made a playlist and we had so much fun eating, drinking, laughing, and playing!

In other news, Nicholas took two days off at the beginning of the week to take care of the kids while I went to a conference for work at SAS in Cary. I had a great time and learned a lot! What I thought would happen was Nicholas would be so grateful for all I do after those two days, and I think he was. But what really happened was I felt so grateful to him for what he does everyday! The traffic getting there Monday was rough. But getting out the door just a few minutes earlier the next day made a HUGE difference Tuesday. I realize Nicholas sacrifices more than he lets on when the kids and I run a few minutes behind and the time with family at night is scarce and precious!

And some gratuitous kid and fall foliage pictures from lately!
