The Big 3-0!
Let me start off by wishing a very happy birthday to…MYSELF! Yep, today is the 9th anniversary of my 21st birthday, meaning I am officially a grown up (aka 30!). Since I am heavily pregnant, we won’t be celebrating in any crazy and wild fashion, but I expect that Sticky Toffee Pudding will somehow be involved. My special gift from Jonathan was a new pair of ‘work’ shoes, aka, UGG moccasin slippers.
In the past year and a half of being a housewife, I’ve completely blown through the sheepskin lining of my original pair so it was time for a replacement pair. I especially love that he appropriately got me a pair in burgundy, which will be camouflaged perfectly with the carpet that has become the bane of my existence.
But that’s okay, because my other special gift is a maid! Yep, our new housekeeper starts work today, which means I can just kick up my cozy feet and watch someone else do my dirty work.
I kind of feel like hiring a maid is cheating on my housewife duties, but since in about *one month* I will be promoted to my new position as ‘Stay-at-Home’ mom, I’ve got to start delegating some of my responsibilities…and I choose to delegate scrubbing toilets and vacuuming burgundy carpet. Now I just need to hire a dog walker and pooper scooper and I’ll be all set! I hope you have a very happy my birthday!
