I was totally indulgent today, simply in PREPARATION of my birthday!! I was lucky enough to have a few hours to myself… my sis-in-law Kiley watched the little ones this morning while I ran a couple of errands, and got lost. (amazingly, a lot has changed in 19 monthts around here!) I had a little ‘retail therapy’ at Forever 21… My MIL picked up Mexican take out for lunch…I made choc. chip cookies… (I LOVE the Mexican vanilla she has here at her house)…then E came home, and I left again… doing my final details for the Houston trip; picking up the Bazzill components and stuff I needed from Staples. Then I got a PEDICURE and a Manicure. Oh, I enjoyed it!! went to a new place that emily recommended, and they are good massagers! My calves and forearms! It rivaled the foot rubs in Beijing! There were about a million darling little high school girls getting their nails done in prep for PROM this weekend… so cute. As if I didn’t feel OLD since it’s my B-DAY tomorrow, sitting there with a bunch of teens did it! chuckle. Took me back a few years.. thinking about birthdays past! Last year for my birthday I was in South Africa! So much has happened in a year. Nonetheless… my toes look fabulous, and it was a wonderful birthday indulgence. Then my sweet friend Jodi brought a Red Velvet cake over tonight! It’s my favorite…(it wasn’t as good as yours mom, but I still felt SO loved!) THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
So in honor of my big 37th birthday, I have selected the 37th commenter as the winner of the 2 spots to my Edmonton appearance! I wish I could just give you all a spot! Maybe you can play that ‘mother’s day’ card…and come and spend the day anyway!
Tomorrow, I am heading to Houston… believe it or not, it’s my first time in Houston, and I am excited! check back, I will take you on a video tour of By DESIGN, and give you some peeks into my classes and projects while I am there!
So Congrats to Tanya K: see you on May 30th in Edmonton! EMAIL ME
