My Birthday Celebration(s)

I had a great celebration this year, turning 41.

On my big day I went to lunch with a friend and then out with my 3 favorite men for Japanese that night.  We're getting a little silly at the end of the night here.



Beautiful flowers and a new iPod.  Thomas was thrilled to get my old iPod.
Now that I download books, I could only put one or two sections from the book on my old one.


Then I had a Pajama Party!
I got the idea from a magazine, and it was sooo much fun!

I had a number of friends over for a movie night - all of us in pajamas and it was so relaxing.

Thomas set up the plastic cups.  Isn't he clever? 

We had lots of food of course...

I had the cupcakes made at the bakery at our CSA.


I mixed in some healthy snacks


But it was a Valentine's themed party so lots of candy was in order...


This Feta Dip is really good

I got the girls water bottles with their initials, filled with water to go along with the Pomegranate Mimosas and wine.


The boys were happy to help me set up and enjoy Just Dance on the Wii before heading out to the Marriott with Dad for the night.  I got a great Groupon deal and they got to enjoy a hotel with an indoor swimming pool!  Hugs to David for giving us some girl time.

We didn't take many photos, but here are some of the ladies.
Such a sweet group of people.  I love them!

We watched the cheesy romantic comedy Valentine's Day and it was awesome.






Because we were having a Pajama Party, I asked everyone to bring a pair of new pajamas instead of a gift.  I collected 27 pairs!! 
The boys and I took them to the domestic violence shelter in town. 
When kids (and moms) arrive at the shelter they are sometimes without a change of clothes for the night.  We know these will be used and greatly appreciated.

Such a great birthday week!

Oh Bonnie, how fun. Happy belated birthday. What a wonderful birthday to have a pajama party. I would love to do that. The idea of collecting the pj for the shelter was a wonderful idea also. You are the sweetest and have the best 3 men in your life.

A belated Happy birthday, brilliant idea to collect PJ's for the centre.
Apologies for not calling by to comment very often, time just seems to get swallowed up by real life!
