Saturday was my 43rd birthday. Since it was my birthday and Memorial Day weekend, we decided to have a small family party to celebrate both.
A birthday isn’t a birthday without cake! Mr. SP and I enjoyed a pre-birthday cake on Friday, Mama made a cake for my birthday on Saturday, and my sweet friend Elsie made Pinterest inspired tennis cupcakes for a party on Sunday.
While we were boating we spotted the Smith Mountain Lake ice cream boat and stopped for a treat.
It was a wonderful birthday and I was so happy that family could help me celebrate.
If you are wondering about presents, I was completely spoiled. One of my favorites was from Mr. SP. We love to watch Big Bang Theory and I especially love to sing “Soft Kitty.” Mama and I love to sing it, too. (If you don’t watch Big Bang Theory, then you won’t get this at all.) Mr. SP got Mama and me matching soft kitty coffee mugs and I got a shirt. I can’t wait to wear it!
My big present from Mr. SP is quite romantic. When we go to Vermont at Christmas, we like to shop at a jewelry store in Woodstock. Mr. SP has spoiled me with two rings from this shop as Christmas presents two different years. This past Christmas I fell in love with a necklace but I wouldn’t let Mr. SP buy it for me. Sneaky Mr. SP bought it later and saved it for my birthday. It’s new but looks vintage and it’s made by the same person who made my rings. I have the most thoughtful husband.
Our friends have a tennis court in their back yard and they invited a few of us over for a party on Sunday. We played, ate, and talked. It was so much fun to relax with friends on a Sunday evening without the worry of work on Monday.
After playing Saturday and Sunday, Monday was chore day, mostly spent in the yard. A day in the yard is pure pleasure for me and it was the perfect end to a most wonderful birthday weekend.
I hope you had a good weekend, too!
