For Connor's 14 Birthday we treated bunch guys to 'CiCi's Pizza' (an all you can eat pizza buffet) and then back to our house for 'Tommy Boy' with cold gatorades and candybars.
The boys humored me with a group shot...
which quickly dissolved into a mass of wrestling bodies. BOYS!! Actually I am getting used to the constant wrestling that goes on in a house of boys--and Connor's friends were so cute with my little boys. This is a pretty sweet group of teenagers!
Connor and I share a birthday week and one of my sweet neighbors surprised us one afternoon with the Lindt Truffle cupcakes from The Sisters Cafe. They were amazing, melt in your mouth good and Connor and I were both so happy with the gift. Thank you Kay!
My birthday was delightful surrounded by my boys! And I am happy to report we had no cake issues like last year:)!
But I have to tell you about quite possibly the sweetest treat of my birthday...
One of my friends arranged with my boys to come over and super clean all my bathrooms while I was out of the house one afternoon. Now, I love a clean house (especially bathrooms) and pride myself in keeping on a good routine, most of the time, but for some reason May has been crazy for me and I hate to admit it, but I let my bathrooms slide. I mean, they were BAD! The last couple of weeks I have skipped the deep cleaning they usually get and have done a five minute-wipe-the-sink-and-counter-and-quickly-swish-the- toilet- brush kind of clean.
Imagine my total astonishment when I came home to all of my bathrooms pristine, and sparkling clean! With flowers and chocolate to top it all off! Seriously I got a little teary eyed:) What a perfect gift. I had complained to my friend that I probably needed to hire help with my bathrooms because lately I felt like I couldn't keep up and did not have time for the deep cleaning that they needed.
As I looked over the beautifully clean rooms, I waffled between feeling so grateful for such a kind, thoughtful birthday offering and then horrified that my sweet friend cleaned my awful bathrooms---how embarrassing! In the end I decided to just be thankful (and to NEVER let my bathrooms get that bad again)!
I am blessed to be surrounded by good people and hope to follow their sweet examples. I really enjoyed all the facebook messages, emails, texts and phonecalls too! It made me want to be more diligent in remembering to give birthday wishes:) They are a sweet treat to receive:)
So all in all May was a great month at our house and we are a little sad to see it end.
Summer is officially upon us now and we are EXCITED, how about you?
This years Summer Bucket List up next! YEAH!
