I eventually snapped out of my birthday funk. I’m still not sure exactly why I was feeling down. Anyway, A and the boys spoiled me with cake and wonderful gifts. W picked out some lip gloss for me (he has great taste!) and helped select candles that smelled delicious. I also received the Ed Sheeran cd – love him, roses, and lots of candy! A told me that one more gift was on the way. I had recently shared a picture of a t –shirt from my college and thought perhaps he had ordered that for me.
Yesterday, I came home from work and A handed me a small wrapped package. Not at all what I was expecting. I opened it and found a gorgeous necklace with amethyst and tanzanite stones. Amethyst in S’s birthstone and tanzanite is one of W’s birthstones (there are multiple birthstones for each month). I LOVE it. A little backstory: Quite awhile ago, I mentioned to A that I’d love a piece of jewelry that was symbolic of the boys, but didn’t look like typical mom jewelry. I didn’t want anything that said mom and the birthstone jewelry I had seen wasn’t really my style. Basically I wanted mom jewelry that didn’t look like mom jewelry… and I had yet to actually see something I liked. So I basically gave up on that quest. A completed mission impossible. J
Yikes. Both of those picture are terrible. The first one doesn't do the necklace justice - it's much prettier in person. And the second picture... helllooo horrible office lighting. :O
Today, my company is heading to the Cubs game (hence my shirt in the above pic)! I’m excited. Should be a fun day!!
As much as I'm looking forward to the game, I have terrible mom guilt!! I'm going to miss my guys this afternoon.
