Happy fresh new week, friends. I’m currently under house arrest. My DL expired yesterday (on my birthday!) and I went last week to get a new one only to run into a few snags, so need a new social security card before I can get a new Drivers License and David is working all week this week, so I can’t even get a new social until who knows when…. and then it takes about 10 days to get it in the mail. So, I’m temporarily under house arrest while life happens all around me (and Owen. Due to his age, he’s under house arrest as well, poor boy).
I saw Dolores the Car this morning just sitting in the driveway. She looked sad. So sad. It was like she was saying, “Amber! Drive me! Drive me and get your free Starbucks birthday reward! Drive me and take Owen to preschool, Amber!” and I’m just standing there shaking my head and drinking my coffee, telling Dolores to shut her dirty mouth.
My car doesn’t really have a name. Dolores just seemed appropriate for the story.
In our downtime, the kids like to make their own costumes. This was Owen’s that Fin is wearing. I cut the eyes for him.
We also FINALLY headed to Famous Dave’s to get our birthday dinners. This restaurant has become our go-to for birthday celebrations. Since we didn’t get to go for Fin’s birthday (because we were all dying from back to school germs), we combined it and both got desserts!
He ordered a banana pudding and I got a hot fudge sundae. Maddie and Owen devoured the sundae for me. Fin offered out a few bites of his, but for the most part ate it all by himself. He also go ballsy and decided to use some Famous Dave’s hot sauce and see how long he could go without drinking water. (Snapchatters, you probably saw this. Follow me here if you don’t already)
Sunday was my birthday. David had to work, go figure. But we enjoyed a lazy day at home. Maddie gave me a pedicure.
The kids cleaned the house for me and helped make me a cake. Maddie helped make it, I frosted it, the boys decorated it.
The Bronocs won, we ate Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas for dinner, and went to bed early. Yay!
Whatever David ordered me for my birthday should be in today, so I’m super pumped to see what that’s gonna be! He says I can’t open it until he gets home though…. Fingers crossed for an early day, guys! Haha. Or a late mail day. 😉
