32 Things I Did Yesterday

  1. Woke up at 4:15 to pray Addie back to sleep after a bad dream.
  2. Woke up at 5:00 to feed Brody. TOO EARLY.
  3. Slept for 30 minutes and then got up.
  4. Went to VBS.
  5. Sang some catchy tunes.
  6. Led a group of 1st graders on a SonRock Kids Camp adventure.
  7. Made a bookmark.
  8. Left early.
  9. Drove to Janna's house for a little party.
  10. Stopped by a grocery store on the way to pick up popsicles, and it's safe to say that except for my kids, I was the youngest person there by 30 or 40 years. It felt like the Twilight Zone.
  11. Arrived at Janna's super cute house.
  12. Ate good food, drank yummy lemonade.

  13. Laughed with friends.
  14. Celebrated our friend Joanne, who is moving away for a year.
  15. Swapped stories, shared our hearts, and laughed some more with friends.

    These girls are blogging friends turned real life friends. How fun is that? Joanne said it best: "these women are exactly who they present themselves to be--only even better in real life." I would never have dreamed that starting a blog three years ago would've led to to wonderful friendships like these.
    (Pictured above: Holly, Janna, Amy (my sister), Paula, Joanne, (me!) - Not pictured: Kimberly and Amy (who doesn't blog, but is a delight!) (Missed you, Mer!)
  16. Came home. (FYI, Janna - 32 minutes door-to-door.)
  17. Was e-x-h-a-u-s-t-e-d.
  18. Laid down to nap... Brody woke up 3 minutes later.
  19. Brody did not want to snuggle.
  20. Gary came home.
  21. Tried to come up with a plan for the night.
  22. Came up with one!
  23. Changed it.
  24. Came up with another one!
  25. Went to Islands in Boulder for dinner. After using up the balance on a gift card and eating on Kids Eat Free Tuesday, it was under $5! Score! Left my birthday card from Emma on the table. Sad.
  26. Took the kids to see "Up" in 3D and more than made up for the $5 dinner. (Gulp! Movies are NOT cheap!)
  27. Both laughed and cried during "Up." I loved that Brody snuggled me and slept through most of the movie. The poor guy is teething and it's been hard on him.
  28. Wanted a picture of my kids and I in our glasses to remember the great night. BUT... Gary tried to take a picture and realized I forgot to put the memory card in. Doh! It's not the first time I've done that, and it really irks me. It really was a sweet moment though. So memory card or not, I'm showing you. First, us in our glasses:

    Second: Gary sad about the memory card.

  29. Went back to Islands to see if they saved the card I left on the table. They DID! I cried again. They said it was so sweet and they hoped someone would come back for it. How could I not?

  30. Felt lots of love from family and friends, especially on Facebook! Wow!
  31. Ate some Phish Food before bed. Perfect way to end a great day.
  32. Turned 32. :)


  1. Happy Birthday! Sounds like a great day!!

    I'm amazed you got to know all of those friends through blogging! And they all live nearby?? FUN!

    Cute cartoons! Very artistic. I'm impressed! Sounds like a great day!

  2. Thanks for spending time with us on your special day! And I'm so sorry your birthday nap didn't happen. Maybe a post-birthday nap is in order...

    And I love Islands. And your cartoons. And your sweet birthday card.

    So much love,

  3. Glad you had such a good day!! Love the little drawings of you guys. Did you do those?

    Hopefully you will be able to get a nap today!!!

  4. Happy Belated Birthday!

    Sounds like a FUN day.

    I cried like a baby at UP.

    And I laughed at lots of things in your post.

    I once left a b'day card at Macaroni Grill, and went back the next day because they saved it for me! I'd have gone back for the one your kids gave you too! So sweet, Angie!

  5. Happy Birthday!

    I am so glad they still had your card. Chris and I went to see Up a couple weeks ago. I totally cried (almost started sobbing!) after the 20 minute montage of their life. And don't tell anyone, but Chris got a little misty eyed at the end too. It was such a weird (talking dogs?) but well done movie. Glad you liked it.

  6. Glad you had such a great day...cartoon drawing and all! ;) Loved the pics!

  7. Happy Birthday!!

    What a great post about a great day.

    It is so fun that you know Janna, because I feel like I know her because she is friends with my friend Kristen Haufschild. Her crafting and sewing has guru status in my world.

    Love you!!

  8. Happy birthday, Angie dearest (:

  9. Love the cartoons!
    Great job on the popsicles, My guys are still talking about them.
    I napped when I got home and went back to bed as soon as the boys did that night. Wild parties wear me out! ;)
