Easy Tiger....

On my lunch hour yesterday, Jimbo, Levi and Parker picked me up for our lunch date. While we were driving, Parker and I were in the backseat and this pop can on the floor kept attacking me. Finally, I'd had enough and started smashing the pop can.

Parker held out his hand and said, "Whoa, whoa, whoa! Easy tiger!!!"

LOL The things that kid says......I'm wondering where he heard that!

The big 4-0

Yesterday was my birthday! I am now the big 4-0!

I share my birthday with my oldest son, Levi. He was born on my 21st birthday exactly 21 years and 12 hours after I was born - to the minute! Weird - huh? Anyway, he turned 19 yesterday. I think I'm having a harder time with that than turning 40! It seems like just yesterday that he was a beautiful little baby boy. Now, he's a handsome man! EEK!

Jimbo went above and beyond this year! Saturday, he took me to Omaha for the night. It was extra special we haven't stayed in a hotel alone since before Parker was born. Actually, I don't think we've been alone overnight anywhere!

Plus, we went shopping! He bought stuff for me from Archivers, Sephora, Victoria Secret and Barnes & Noble! Hooray! Best of all, he bought me a Color Nook!

He surprised me with a carriage ride in the Old Market! It was incredibly sweet because we took the carriage through the park where we had pictures taken with Parker when he was just a tiny baby. Awww!

Afterwards, we went to a lovely Mexican restaurant and discovered we're incredibly old and stuffy! lol It seemed like everyone there was drunk! But the food was good! We're sooo old, we decided not to go to the bars or the casino like he had planned and went back to the hotel room and ate fried ice cream while watching tv in bed. But I wouldn't have had it any other way!

The next day, we went shopping a bit more. Then, we met the boys at Laser Tag in Lincoln and played a game with them to celebrate Levi's birthday. It was soooo much fun! I was the top scorer in the first game and I think the boys were shocked their momma whipped them! LOL Then, we went to lunch to celebrate Levi's birthday.

When we got home, the boys had MORE gifts for me! They gave me accessories I'd need for my Nook.....

Yesterday, Jim surprised me with flowers and a cake! He had a cheesecake for Levi. I cooked dinner for Levi and he chose steak with asiago cream sauce and bacon onion potatoes. YUM! Good choice, Levi!

I feel soooo spoiled! Thank you, Jimbo! It was a terrific birthday!
