I’m doing a bit of recovery today from a slightly hectic week.
Hence the pic of the Healthy Papaya Beauty Smoothie (more on that later).
We started the week with Bella’s Birthday.
Store bought Ice Cream Cake. Walmart. $14.99.
Rainbow colored birthday girl. About to burst open from shear happiness.
The loot. Everything having to do with SOFTBALL.
Balls. Balls. And more Balls.
A big net thing so she can practice hitting and pitching in the backyard.
A purse. Softball neon yellow.
And maybe her fave gift of all. Bacon Flavored Sunflower seeds.

I have to get ready for tomorrow.
It’s my birthday.
38 WONDERFUL YEARS.
So today, I’m going to make a list of all the things I want to do with Warwick tomorrow (he’s taking the day off).
This is what I have so far. . . .
1.) Eat lovely breakfast, then shoo my kids out the door to school.
2.) Go to this really cool Garden Nursery in Seabrook.
3.) Go flea market shopping!!!!!!
4.) Eat lunch somewhere fabulous. Get EXACTLY what I want. No matter the caloric intake. No matter the price.
5.) Go to Ikea and then to Starbucks just because I like the way they smell inside.
6.) Pick up our kids from school.
7.) Eat dinner at 4:00 pm so we can make it to 5:45 and 6:00 Volleyball and Softball practice.
8.) Come home and eat some really great birthday pie that has been purchased in my honor.
9.)Kiss my children goodnight. Hug my husband tight. Pray for my mom and dad. And be ever so grateful for a fantastic 38 years of life.
10.) Go to bed knowing my 39th year will be even better.
Not a bad list. But I’m still working on it.
I’m also working on eating the absolutely most perfect meals today. . . . .in order to enhance my tomorrow.
Light, Fresh. Full of nutrients.
Like this Papaya Smoothie.
So good that my knuckle head 3 year old drank it up. . . .completely. . .so I had to make another.
I’m thinking this book might come in handy now that I’m almost 38. It has all sorts of tips and tricks on how to take care of your skin and how to make yourself feel beauitiful on the inside and out.
Which is important at any age.
And quite honestly,
as long as I’m feeling and looking good, I’ll never be ashamed to say how old I am.
Here’s to 100 years of looking and feeling BEAUTIFUL!
Happy Birthday to me.
