The Long Birthday Weekend is Over

I am of the mindset that when it is your birthday, you celebrate it for as long as you can. My children benefit from this because their birthdays land on Spring Break every year so we have fun on all the days surrounding their birthdays.

This year year I was going to do the same for myself by going out with my husband and kiddos on Friday and having a Girls Day/Night Out on Saturday.

Well, as they say, "The best laid plans of mice and men." Thursday's events put a damper on things, leaving me to postpone James' dental appointment to Friday. What transpired from there turned into an all day ordeal that ended in root canal for the little tyke. Needless to say, there was no going out for dinner for us.

Saturday, however, went off without a hitch. I took my mom for a day at the spa which she ended up treating me to. We went home relaxed and refreshed, and I prepared for my girls night out.

Usually, events that I plan have an uncanny way of falling flat, but this one went quite well. Everyone met up at my new favorite place for Paninis, coffees and s'mores. Although, the marshmallows wouldn't melt the way they should, we still had fun making ourselves sick on sweets. We then followed that up with a little trip next door to my favorite Irish Pub for a drink. A good time was had by all.

Oh, Happy Birthday! Why not let it continue for another week (or two)?

Glad your Saturday went so well. The spa day sounds like a perfect birthday event. And, of course, the girls night out...!

May the celebrations continue....
