Instead, what actually happened was a 5am wake up call by George the Punk - I like to think he couldn't wait to wish me a happy birthday. Then my husband took over, let me go back to sleep, went and picked up my favorite coffee drink, dressed and fed the kids, and let me roll out of bed at a leisurely pace.
The rest of the day was perfect, too.
Nick got me this cute little wreath I was admiring on Etsy.
cupcakes delivered by my mama (who also babysat the dudes)
a tour of the local chocolate factory with Nick. We look good, no?
The moment you walk in, the scent of chocolate envelops you and puts you in a euphoric state. At least that's what happened to me. I was drunk on the dark stuff. I recommend this to everyone on earth.
Did you know that cocoa beans have the second highest concentration of antioxidants in the world? And that any chocolate with more than 70% cocoa is a natural cough suppressant? Like I needed more reasons to eat it, but there you have it. You're welcome!
Afterward, we stopped by a vintage shop and I found these amazing boots. I am happy.
Then I came home to these little rugrats and a visit with my Grams, my Mom and one of my awesome cousins. And thai takeout.
I mean, seriously, might be the best birthday ever.
