My actual birthday is not until Sunday, but we started celebrating last night. My parents offered to keep the kids overnight and we invited friends over for game night. We picked up snacks and drinks and Josh made a run to a local Mexican restaurant for chips, red and green sauce, and queso. We played Mexican Train (which is nearly the only game we ever play, but we have SO much fun playing it) for a few hours and then decided to go see Dinner for Schmucks at the spur of the moment because we were FREE and there were no sleeping children upstairs. I'm so glad we decided to go, it was HILARIOUS. So, so funny. We were still laughing hysterically as we left the theater. I don't know how people write things like that, it was a comedic masterpiece. We got home at 12:30am, but Josh and I played a little Guitar Hero anyway. It was my birthday gift from our little family; Guitar Hero 5, World Tour, and Aerosmith. Our XBOX 360 died for the 3rd and final time not long ago and we traded everything in and have been working on replenishing our game stock, this time for the Wii. The only thing we were really missing was our Guitar Hero games, so my birthday was a good time to splurge on that! We all like to play them and I especially like to jam a little when I am in need of a study break.
This morning, Josh went to pick the kids up while I slept in. When I got up the coffee was made and I grazed on leftover party foods. Nothing like chips and salsa for brunch! We've had a really low key day (except for Josh who has been working on home improvement projects like crazy), KayTar finally seems to have made a little progress with her constipation (which is a gift in itself), and in an hour we'll go to BubTar's basketball game. This evening the in-laws are making me a special dinner and we're celebrating my birthday with them.
Tomorrow, we will celebrate with my parents, go out to Olive Garden to eat, and then I'll probably spend the rest of the day shopping, since my mom usually gives me some spending money for my birthday. All in all, it is shaping up to be a pretty perfect weekend!
