I had a great birthday yesterday. Alex got up with Jack and dressed him in my favorite shirt. Here he is posing with my gift.

It's a Zip Around Wallet in Pink Cupcake. I actually wanted this wallet in about five other colors, but apparently those are all very popular because Alex could not find any of them. He picked this pattern out himself and he did a great job.

Instead of a birthday cake, I had a giant brownie with delicious cream cheese frosting. I will not tell you how much of this brownie I have already eaten BY MYSELF.

My parents also sent me flowers!

So the florist delivered them while we were out to lunch. And instead of leaving them at the house or taking them back to the florist, the delivery guy left them with our neighbors two houses down. Our neighbors that I do not know. When we got home, I walked down to the house looking forward to a lovely awkward conversation and they were not home. I didn't get them until much later that night. Silly florist.

It was a nice, low key day and a great way to celebrate the first day of the end of my 20's. Y'all, I can't believe I'm already 29. I just don't feel like I'm in my late 20's, like AT ALL. It really blows my mind to think that I'll be embarking on my third decade of life in 364 days. In many ways, I still feel like a child. And most days, I feel like an awkward teenager. Like I'm playing at being an adult. And yet here I am, a wife and mother and 29. It's not how I imagined it and would not have been what I planned. But you know, I'm okay with it.

Him wearing that shirt was part of her birthday present too. That shirt may have been "lost" before her birthday.

Yea! I love the "cake". Mmmmmm.

It took me a long time to realize I am the adult and not a teenager anymore too. At least my mind feels young even if my age says otherwise. :D
