My 24th Birthday Week...

Around here, birthdays are weeklong celebrations! So last weekend we started gearing up for the big day (Wed. Sept. 17th) We drove up to Detroit to Rainforest Cafe (AGAIN)... (its pretty apparent there isn't much to do around here huh?) but it was a great day- I got some new coaching clothes and Maeve absolutely LOVED dinner! And she pooped out on the ride home so it was a nice couple of hours to catch up with my husband on life...

Basically, Monday and Tuesday I just milked it- like saying stuff like "Ryan can you do the dishes? Its my birthday." Or "On your way home from work can you pick up Coca Cola cake? Its my birthday!" Hahaha...

Wednsday was a ton of fun but extremely tiring... you see, miss Maeve has an ear infection in her left ear- it has been a nightmare- she is up just about every 3 hours, not eating, diarreha, runny nose, etc. Anyhow, I managed to give her enough motrin to keep her happy for my mom who watched her while I got an awesome pedicure :) YEA!!! Then my mom and dad took Maeve and I out for lunch (which is rare- my dad is the busiest guy on the planet... so it was great to have an hour with him) Then I went to work- FUN. And we ended the day by going out for dinner (just Ryan, Maeve and I).

Friday, we wrapped up the week with a date- just me and Ryan :) It was great! We went to Daryls and had the best champagne ever :) Oh and I got a massage (probably the highlight of the week!) Ryan also gave me my present which is a gorgeous necklace with an engraved "M" on the front and 10-11-07 engraved on the back. That way I can always carry my Maybug close to my heart :) It just about made me cry when I saw it!

On a different note, I am happy to report after 3 days on medication Maeve is feeling TONS better. Although the medicine is giving her even WORSE diarreha. We've had to change her sheets twice in 2 days because of exploding diapers. YUCK!!!!

So many fun things are right on the horizon, I CAN'T WAIT! Maeve's 1st birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks- then a week after that its DISNEY WORLD!!! We are beyond excited! This will be our first vacation, just the 3 of us. But there is tons to do before then- I have 24 invitations to HAND MAKE- yikes... (actually I'm almost done with them, just have to address them) plan Maeves party, pack, shop for Florida... all fun stuff :)

Anyways, my house is a disaster and laundry is literally piled about 3 feet high in our closet. So off to the laundry room for me :(

Sounds like a good week!! :) Ri's and my b-days are this week too! I also hand-made all of Riley's invites, man they took longer than I thought but it's still fun to do :). I'll be posting pictures after her party on Sunday. Glad you all are doing well.
