a day for cake

I love celebrating Birthdays. It's the one day a year people are excited for you and encourage you to eat cake. It wasn't my birthday this past week, the hubby turned 33! Jude seems to think that it's his birthday every time we bring out cake and candles. That's ok though, I love seeing him get excited about lit candles and the way his little voice shouts out "cake!" I hope he never looses his enthusiasm for the simple things in life.

A few days in the sun

Last weekend i was in Phoenix and although the weather was a welcome change from the forty degrees and rain that seems to be blanketing MN, the weekend was interesting to say the least.
Every time i go on vacation, i return home more grateful than ever for my seemingly normal life with my husband, son and dogs. Being away makes me appreciate preparing simple meals in my own kitchen, taking walks to the park and snuggling with my pug on the couch.
Now don't get me wrong, i loved not having to worry about cleaning up spilled milk, changing diapers and planning my day around nap time. It was very refreshing having some freedom for a bit. I think i'm good though on airplane travel for a while. I still have a hard time with the thought that being trapped in a large metal object hurtling through the air at high speeds is a good idea. Something about it just freaks me out!
Oh, and i wasn't actually smoking...remember candy cigarettes? A true (and semi-disturbing) classic!
