We kicked off my birthday celebration with a little trip to Tucanos! If you live near a Tucanos, I highly recommend joining their birthday club. Who wouldn't love a free meal of all-you-can-eat meat with a Brazilian flair? Tucanos is how I imagine heaven.
This was me last year... It turns out, you can fit a lot more food in your stomach if there isn't an overdue baby in there. I enjoyed myself a little more this time around :)
The next morning (my actual birthday) I got out of bed to go get Carly from her crib. When I came back, Matt had put his presents for me on the bed.
|"Get DOWN Tonight! Psalms 95:6 ...let us kneel before the Lord our maker."|
Matt spoiled me further by making me pancakes and bacon. I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22.
My stylish Mom got this gorgeous dress, and we finished the day with chicken curry and pumpkin pie. What a fabulous birthday!
We kept Carly's birthday simple (as I believe all one-year-old birthdays should be.) with presents and carrot cake. We filmed her tentatively peel back the paper on her presents and daintily eat her cake. She's a sweet, rambunctious girl and I just can't believe how big she is. When did she grow?? Happy First Birthday Carly bug. Life would be so boring without you!
