Celebrating Eric

We had a good day yesterday...I hope Eric thought so, too. :)

I forgot to take a picture of Eric's gift before he opened it, but this was the aftermath, haha.

It's really hard to buy a present for Eric, because ALL of our accounts are shared. It's impossible to order anything online or for me to use the debit card somewhere without him seeing it. So I thought I would cash in a change jar I had been saving up for about a year to get him a present for his birthday. Unfortunately, I lost the jar! (Haha, what?) I was getting ready to leave to go shopping, I went to the cabinet where I keep it, and my heart just sank when it wasn't there. I realized pretty quickly what had happened. The week before we were going to cash it in, so we brought the jar with us when we went shopping, and we left it in a shopping cart. (Long story.)

Anyway, I had to get Eric a really small gift with what little money I had in my wallet. It was really disappointing, but there was nothing I could do about it. I think Eric still had a nice birthday! My mama helped me out and I made his favorite dinner - stuffed peppers. And my mom came over and whipped up this dessert for us. :)

The girls and I sang Eric Happy Birthday while we ate it, haha.

I also received an email from our Vacation Bible School director yesterday morning and learned that my next month is going to be crazy. She has a lot going on and can't do anything with VBS at the moment, so...I am on my own.


Haha. I have no idea what I'm doing. But I'm gonna do it! Between Evie's birthday party and VBS, and you know - the whole mom thing, there is no such thing as "free time" for me anymore. I am also planning a baby shower. What in the world.

This post has taken me two hours to write, by the way. Some people ask me how I find the time to blog...my answer: it's one sentence at a time. And I get very little sleep. :)

I hope you all have a great day today. We're going to be going to my parent's house...school night for Eric! And I'm going to try to just enjoy this day and not think about all of the stuff I have to do. I'm tired. Happy Tuesday!
