Guess what? We’re in Scotland!  Whoo-hoo!  I scheduled this post in advance so I could end the week as normal.

I promised I’d share more about my birthday so here goes, the day was absolute perfection.  It started off with an iced vanilla latte and a mani/pedi with The BFF.  Then a relaxing afternoon nap with my adorable son, and finally a date night with my hubby.

I also BANKED on a bunch of free stuff, Starbucks, Which Wich, and Caribou.  Does anyone else retail hop on their birthday?  What can I add to the list for next year??

The Sister and The BIL babysit for us during date night and they did excellent job.  When we walked in the door we were greeted with one huge birthday present!



I was shocked and frankly, a little teary-eyed!

My family had looked at my list from this blog post and completely surprised me by getting number 2.  We still have to buy the chairs (the chairs in the photo are from our old set) but I’m absolutely thrilled to have such a lovely table in our dining room that can fit my entire immediate family of 8 adults.  Looks like I don’t need an Amazon wish list when I blog about all the things I want, haha.  Thanks again family, I love it!!

On Sunday we went to an apple orchard to pick apples and raspberries.  Everything was delicious!  Seems to me like a tradition is forming. We also went to an apple orchard in Kansas as part of my 30th birthday celebrations last year.

Unfortunately, it was too cold for The Wee One to be outside for any of the photos. Despite the freezing fall weather, we had a great time!
