Labor Day Weekend

This past weekend was Labor Day weekend... which in my house, is usually some sort of big deal. It's both my and my mom's birthday weekend usually. So maybe not a big deal, because when you're my age, your birthday becomes all about cake and ice cream and less about a 'birthday party' but eh, I usually enjoy myself. This birthday was my first one as a mumma. Which is pretty cool. Little guy Lucas got me this awesome frame for my desk at work. I just need to find some pictures for it!
On that note. I go back to work a week from Monday. I'm kind of stressing. I mean, adult conversation will be nice but part of me feels like I'm going to miss out on everything my little guy does which gets me totally bummed. The biggest saving grace is that he will be with my mother in law, so that makes it a thousand times easier to leave him.. But I would still LOVE to stay home with him til he goes off to school, then I'll head back to work. But no, that can't happen. My paid time off is coming to an end and I have to return to the working world. Here's hoping my job won't drive me crazy when I get back.

But back to my birthday. Here's a little bit of what went on.. (minus my food- because I was super hungry and ate it before I thought to take a picture- steak tips and corn on the cob- best EVER)
1. Gift cards to my fave places to eat. 2. An anchor Alex and Ani bracelet 3. Mmm Cake. 4./5. The best card ever from my sister. 6. New phone. Hooray! 7. Homemade wrapping paper. 8. New clothes from my brother.
Happy Birthday Mumma!!!

 Tuesday night we celebrated my mom's birthday with pasta, meatballs, sausage, cake and ice cream. Home cooked birthday meals are the best! So delish!
Happy Birthday Grammy!
That's about all that has been going on lately... Just trying to spend as much time with this cute boy as I can before I head back to work.

This weekend coming up is our friend's son's birthday! I can't believe he's going to be 1! Time just flies by too quickly. I'll soon be saying it about this little bean...

Have a wonderful day/week everyone!
