My Happy, Happy Birthday

12.06.2012

Since my birthday fell on a weekday, Jesse had to go to work. I decided that Emerson and I needed to get out of the house and do something so we headed to Ikea. I needed some storage bins plus I love to browse there so I knew it would be the perfect outing.

We shopped, ate lunch, played, and finished the trip off with ice cream.

She was moving so fast that almost all of my pictures are blurry!

While Emerson napped I got a quick workout in and then we waited for Daddy to get home.  Once he was home we had birthday cake and he and E gave me flowers and a new water bottle that I've been eying forever.

I love that the card said Happy Birthday Mum. :)


Later in the evening we decided to go out for dinner. We had previously planned on getting a babysitter but decided to take Emerson with us instead. After all, what's a celebration without my baby girl?

We went out for Indian food, my favorite, and it was amazing!! I seriously ate and ate ate. And took some pictures, of course.

After we got home I was determined to get at least one good family picture in front of the tree. I set up my tripod and we had our little mini photo shoot. I also learned something very exciting. Emerson LOVES the self-timer and will look straight at the camera and smile! Yay! Now I know how to get pictures with that little munchkin.

And because my birthday cake was so good, I just had to have one more piece before bed. After all, calories don't count on your birthday. Right? Plus it was ice cream cake. I mean who can resist ice cream cake?

Jesse said I was a weirdo for taking a picture of my slice and instagramming it. I'm just surprised he's not used to it by now! :)

I am cracking up at the fact that Jesse is wearing flip flops and you have boots on! I would be the same way...desperate for some fall style in those horrible temps!
