Happy Birthday to Me!

Yesterday was my birthday. Pretty uneventful... but we had fun. I got the tea set I've been craving... and Guitar Hero3. And a bunch of cash... and clothes. And $$$ to spend at BareMinerals. Have I mentioned how loved I am??

Oh, and Ryan figured out how to surf the web and steal Daddy's credit cards... he ordered this gorgeous bouquet for me!

Of all the things I got... I am in love with a card right now... here are the words.

"Once there was this guy.
A nice guy, really.
And he met this girl.
An incredible girl-- truly amazing.
So naturally the guy falls
head over heels in love with her,
and pretty soon they're picking out
china patterns and rings
and there's a wedding
and the starry-eyed couple
rides off into what will surely
be a rosy future.

"Ok, so now some time has passed
and the guy is living in that future.
He's still married to this girl,
but now their life includes a lot of stuff--
appliances and bills and loads of laundry
and home repair projects.
But between all the to-dos and have-tos,
there are these moments
when the guy stops for a minute
and looks around him.

"He looks at his wife,
who is still truly amazing,
he looks at their life together,
all the ways and different
directions it's grown,
he looks at all
the responsibilities he's got,
and he thinks to myself,
so, this is my life.

And then he thinks,
I am one helluva lucky guy."

Yeah... pretty good, huh? I love my hubby.
