I chose a playground

25 was a fantastic birthday.

This is how it went down.

12:01am-  I had gone up to bed so Mr. Murphy could pull an all nighter and get his work done.  He did this so he could suprise me by taking the whole day of my birthday off of work. (unknown to me!)  He pops in a little after midnight saying, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!"  

12:02-  My birthday is started off perfectly right with a kiss from my John and a little hanging out before I go to sleep.

7:00- EJ wakes me up for a little birthday snuggle.  We play in the nursery til 8.

8:00- Time for first nap.  Evie nurses and we fall back to sleep.

9:10- Wake up and go down stairs to find Bek, Joe, and Parker.  We decide to get ready and go to Chic-fil-a for a little b-day breakfast.

10:00- drive there

10:20- Arrived at Chic-fil-a and the cute one gives me my first present of the day.  A nice big diaper blow out.

10:25- All is well and Bek has gone in ahead of me to order.  When I get to the table she has my biscuit waiting on a beautiful blue and pink antique plate she bought me. Can't wait to hang it on the wall somewhere. Because that's what cute plates are for right? Certainly not eating on.

11:00- John, Evie, and I get ready to drive into ATL.

11:30- John gives me my present! Some fabric push pins and a kitchen towel. I'm in love...with the boy and the gift.

11:45- We hold hands and chat while EJ sleeps in the back seat.

12:40- We spend quite some time dreaming and praying about something. (more on that to come later)

2:00- John,"what do you want to eat?"
Me,"Flying Buscuit, no Fresh2Order, no Schlotskys. Definitely Schlotskys."
John,"Of all the cool places to eat in Atlanta, you pick Schlotskys?! Does anyone even eat there?"

2:01- I realize my grave mistake and decide on Tin Lizzys instead.

2:30- We enjoy delicious tacos and I get my fish taco fix for the week while Evaleigh captivates everyone she sees with smiles and waving and her huge leopard bow.

3:00- Goodwill Birthday shopping. I come out with a mustard crocheted pillow, two teeny gold frames, a turquoise and black frame, and a brass owl trivet.

3:30- we head home to beat the rush hour traffic.

3:50- John is a sleepy face so I take over driving and he falls asleep on my new pillow.

5:00- We go to Target to meet my dad while he is on his way back to ATL from Athens.

5:05- We get Starbucks and feed EJ pumpkin bread.

5:40- She takes a ride on Pawpaws shoulders and pulls out some of the hair he has left. She was loving it! Thanks for the velvet leggings dad, I'm wearing them right now!

6:00- Get home and I get to hang out with my mom. She gives me some gorgeous new black flats, a dove chocolate bar, a pair of earrings, and a yellow dessert tray that I've been eying at Target! We talk about the day I was born.

6:30- She hugs me and says, "Thank you for making me a mother."

7:15- I put my little girl down for the night and its party time for me and John!

7:40- We get in the car and John tells me we can do anything I want. I decide I want to go to a playground.

8:00- We swing, we slide, we run, we seesaw.

8:20- While on the swings I tell John I don't want to grow up. I don't mind getting older but I never want to grow up. We promise to make each other laugh everyday.

8:40- We walk over to Jonny's Pizza and I have a raspberry sprite and some garlic knots.

9:30- We drive to the dollar theatre and see Rekall. Liked it. We snack on Reese's Pieces and Snow Caps. (John still doesn't know why he chose Snow Caps.  That's like the Schlotsky's of candy.)

11:57- Drove home and got to the house just in time to see mom for my birth minute. I hug her in her bed and she says, "Hi, how are you? We are just meeting for the first time." 25 years ago of course.

12:00- I snuggle up with my Johnny and we go to bed.
