Last week, in case you missed it, I turned 35. Thirty-farging-five and can I just say?
Before I was 35, I was all oh no! and that's so old! and I can't believe it! But now? Now that I'm here and life is fine, well, 35 is also fine.
I'm loving it.
It may be because my day started with a scavenger hunt cleverly designed by my sweet husband to find my present. The kids and I ran around the house in our jammies finding clues until we finally ended up in the garage with my pretty, pretty present hanging overhead. (A glorious road bike that I am so jazzed about.) Then it was off to breakfast with my mom and girlfriends who treated me to a delicious meal and a ton of laughs. After that, my mom and I headed out shopping where I miraculously found a new closet full of clothes and thanks to some gift cards by some incredibly generous ladies, I was stoked. We lunched at Red Robin because I am currently obsessed with that place and then made our way back home, where my husband picked me up and took me out yet again. I love that when we find ourselves alone at dinner, we can talk for hours on end. It was the best present of all. And finally, sweet Sonya turned up at 9 with a big hug and a bag full of Viera's.
I may turn 35 every year.
I've been thinking about what I really, really want to do this year and what I hope to achieve and here's what I've come up with: let's eradicate cancer.
We can do it!
My Relay for Life team and I are getting together tonight to go over our game plan and let me tell you: we plan BIG. If you want to join us, please come to my house at 7 tonight and we'll get you set up. You won't have to do anything difficult and you will feel great about helping out so please, please come. And bring a friend! Everyone is welcome and I guarantee you a fabulous time. If you can't be at the event but still want to contribute, shoot me an email and I'll gladly take a donation off your hands. If everyone who reads this blog sent in a dollar, or five dollars, or whatever works for you, well, we'd be doing mighty fine. Most teams have a corporate sponsor to back them but we're just a bunch of moms and I want to show them what we can do. I will be adding a PayPal button to my sidebar any day now which will make submitting your donation a breeze.
Wouldn't it be great? A world without cancer? The Relay For Life theme for this year is "More Birthday's" and I can't think of a better gift.
And don't forget! Tonight (April 13th) 7 pm my house. Can't wait to see you!
