I Turned 34!!

I had a great birthday. Really great I tell ya! I told Jarom that I just wanted a day to myself with maybe a pedicure or haircut or something. Next thing I knew, he had a full agenda planned for me. Complete with pedicure, manicure, haircut, highlights, massage, dinner, and movie. It. was. awesome!! (And yes, I'm well aware that I am spoiled.)
My mom showed up in the midst of my pedicure and brought me balloons and a slice of cheesecake.

My pretty sister waiting for my pedi to get over so she could cut and highlight my hair.

The new do. Lots more layers and curls. I'm having a lot of fun with it.

After my spa day, I ran home to see my kids for a bit. They were darling. Jarom let them pick a few things to give me. I got magnetic letters for the fridge from Carter and Kate, and Halle gave me little drink umbrellas. (I'm thinking there might have been some ulterior motives behind these gifts.) I also got some new measuring scoops and a free babysitting job from Alyssa.

We enjoyed dinner at Plum Loco (a Mexican restaurant here) and then it was off to see Avatar. I have to say, I've had zero desire to see this, but with all the hype everyone is giving it, I decided to give it a try. I am shocked to report....I really loved it. It was awesome! SO much more than the trailers make it out to be. Really great show. And a great way to end an awesome birthday.
