Birthday "cake" for today.
Yes today is my birthday. I am 26 today. If I ever think I'm getting old....I'll just remember that Jesse turns 28 this year. Yep, that makes me feel better.
Other than that, I had a great start to today. I got to talk to my husband for a while, and got a delivery of flowers for my birthday: A combination of tulips and irises. I will take a photo of that when the buds open up a little more.
I decided to do some shopping, getting a few things to make for Jesse to send for Valentine's Day. I went to Fred Meyer, Hallmark, and a brief stop by the mall. I came home, ate, and then headed out to a briefing on post. We got some great information again, which always makes me feel better. We have another one in early February which also should be great to go to.
This may sound strange -- but I'm sort of excited for Valentine's Day. Wierd? I am looking forward to a day of pampering in Olympia with Kristen, a friend from Georgia. It is for spouses/girlfriends/fiances of service members. The events include a fashion show, spa treatments, make-overs, food, and gift bags. There is free childcare too. It's going to be fun!
I am going to stay up just a little while longer to see if I hear from my hubby. Then, going to bed. Tomorrow I'm going to the park with my dad, sending off a care package to Jesse (um, with some AMAZING cookies, stay tuned for that recipe!!!), and to do some stuff with the house.
I will update more tomorrow!
