But I think he got a little confused. I don't need presents for my birthday. Just lots of attention. For at least a week. Okay, and I need some presents too. I love opening gifts. And wrapping them, coincidentally. But they don't have to be fancy or expensive gifts. Although if an iPod Touch happened to slip into the gift packaging I wouldn't complain.
Luckily I have some very thoughtful friends & family who suprised me with gifts. First of all my most fabulous/wonderful/thoughtful/sweet husband for all he did and bought. Also, my heartfelt thanks goes out to Lindsay & CJ for the gifts I already posted about, Candice for the Gorillapod, Missy for the book (The Mother in Me, which is amazing!), Mom for the Bath & Body Works products (she knows me well), and Jane for the Project Runway paper doll set. She's knows me too well. Here's something I whipped up this morning.
Also thanks to the Rasmussens for putting together a birthday picnic after soccer practice, and for Jody, Candice, and Missy for doing a girls (and kids) lunch with me.
