The lazy days of May

I wish there were some lazy days in May! This mama needs a break! We just got through our busiest weekend in May, complete with a slumber party and anniversary. This year my dear daughter turned the big 8!!!
Here she is being pounced on by her sleepover mates.. She really did have a fabulous birthday and she's very blessed to have such good friends. Her brother was even super-sweet to her all day and had fun with all the girls, too!

On Saturday, hubby and I celebrated 11 years of blissful marriage! Ok, so we are not always blissful (let's be real, folks...that is the name of the blog after all), but we are very fortunate to have one another and we are lucky to have a very loving marriage. He's even so supportive of me that when I mentioned that I'd like to go on an 8-mile training walk that day, he sprayed my back with sunscreen and shooed me out the door! Must be luv. We did enjoy an evening out and we tried The Melting Pot for the first time. It was fabulous, and I'm glad we hadn't planned anything for after dinner because we were there for 3 hours! It was a very relaxing and enjoyable date. And in keeping with our un-romantic theme for anniversary gifts, we decided to get each other a new printer. I know, I know, it's not nearly as romantic as getting each other a will a few years ago, but I think it's a close second. The great part is that we are both perfectly okay with this arrangement. We are still as crazy about each other now as these kids are about trading Silly Bandz:

Happy May!

I think it's crazy that every time I happen to think, "hey, I haven't looked at Jen's blog lately"-- that happens to be THE DAY you put up a new post. We must be related....

Anyway, glad y'all had a great anniversary date! And that you survived the slumber birthday party!! Now you can get a head start on your sleep for next year's birthday #9.... :-)
