I Was My Momma’s Birthday Present

My mom and I celebrated our Birthdays this weekend (not on the actual days because life) and the week was a whirlwind of Birthdays!

Both my mom and my father-in-law were born the same day.  I was born two days after and share my father-in-law’s dad’s birthday.  Basically I was my mom’s birthday present, and my father-in-law was an early birthday present for his dad.

I’ve always celebrated a shared birthday, and I really like that.  I hate opening presents alone in front of people, so having someone to share it with is amazing and makes things MUCH easier on my nerves.

My husband gave me a desk easel, and my in-laws gifted me with a book on Wisconsin Birds and the matching CD.  My parents helped me buy new sandals – the ones I’m wearing I bought in 2008.  I managed to shop around and find a good deal on a nearly identical pair from the same company.

I still have the jean quilt coming – I should have it on August 24th.

So, Happy Birthday to all of us!
