Good Day

Friday was a good day. I had a sitter for the day for Hadley, and of course, Alex was in school. My friend Shannon and I had a manicure, then I met my friends, Chris and Molly for lunch at Wild Ginger for the sushi I've been craving (don't worry, nothing raw). Then I used my gift certificate for my massage that my sweet hubby gave me for Christmas. Now, I was really looking forward to getting to lay on my belly for the massage on that prego pillow. Well, my belly was too big, and it was not comfortable, so I ended up on my side for my massage. It was wonderful! Then I went to the myself...and the Lancome ladies did my makeup. Then I got a smoothie, and got my toes done. Good day! I decided if I could afford a day like that once a week, or even month, I'd be a much better wife, mom, and happier person all around! But that's ok, I'll take what I can get! My relaxing day made my achy body feel much better, and I'm not in such a hurry to have this baby now :)

Then Friday night, my sister-in-law, Kelley, and Molly threw Tadd and I a very fun couple's baby shower! Pictures to come. Even though the men complained that they had to be at the baby shower, they had fun. The beer and wine kept them happy :)

As my friend Stacy was leaving the shower, she told me and Molly that it was her birthday, and laughed. I wanted to cry. We TOTALLY forgot for the 2nd year in a row. Actually, last year, she was a new friend, and she just failed to tell us it was her birthday. This year, my fault. Now, I'm terrible at birthdays, and I admit that. But two years in a row is bad. So I felt really bad about having my, "ME, ME, ME" day when it was Stacy's birthday. How do you make up for such a thing? I mean we even had a shower for ME on her b'day. Has this happened to any of you before? When I say friend, I mean really good friend. Not just someone you know. But someone you see at least twice a week, and talk to more than that. HELP! We have a fun belated b'day lunch planned for Wednesday, but I feel like I'll never be able to make it up to her. Any bright ideas?

By the way, I am the type that talks about my birthday for like weeks before, and have a birthday week for myself. If my friends don't plan something for me, I am planning it myself. I guess I expect other people to be the same way. But some people (Stacy included) have never been the type to make a big deal out of birthdays. What category do you fall into? Would love to hear your comments!

Sorry for rambling!

SO glad you got a "Holly Day"...even at the expense of your poor, dear sweet friend, Stacy. Awww...poor Stacy. I bet you knew it was her birthday all along! ;) Ha! I'm kidding!
Isn't that the worst?! I've done that before, and when I finally realized it, I felt terrible.
I don't know what you can do to make up for it. Get her a really nice, thoughtful gift?
Give yourself a break. You have a lot going on.
I'm the type, though, that doesn't really make a big deal about my birthdays (except some years to Channing. I've even stopped that in recent years, though). I just don't like people making a fuss over me. I would rather make a fuss over others. I am MUCH more comfortable in that role. I don't know, I guess I don't like a lot of attention. I like to shower, not be showered. It's just my personality, I guess...that shyness. My friend, Ashley, thinks I'm totally weird for it. :)
Anyway, I've gone on long enough. You're about to have a big birthday. Any plans??? What can we do to make it extra special for you, my dear? :)
