|Here's my purple martini, complete with edible orchid.|
Back to the birthday. While I typically have extremely high hopes for my birthday (I have cried on every birthday I've ever had), this year I just wanted to have a birthday.
So, when I awoke on February 2nd with "favorable" scan results (oh, and an ice storm - my husband got to hang around for an extra 2 hours before work), I was delighted. I enjoyed some alone time in the morning, bargain shopping and treating myself to a new carseat for Judah. A car seat? A treat? Yes, I'm tired of pinching my fingers in the non-Britax car seat belt and so I bought a newer, better seat that will last him up to 100 lbs. Happy Birthday to me.
The afternoon was full of fun such as vacuuming, doing laundry and tidying up the house. This may seem mundane and lame-O to most people, but I can appreciate the fact that I am able to do these things for myself now and I take a sense of pride and accomplishment in feeling productive afterwards.

|Hard to tell here, but it's purple (duh). Now on our bedroom wall.|
Milestone note: I got my hair cut last week.
|Dibbs on the LEMON!! DC Blitsteins ROCK!|
Luckily for me, I have both an excellent stylist and my hair is growing back just as thick as before. For some reason, the front is taking a while to get long, but at least I have full follicular coverage. When I look at pictures of myself from a few months ago, I can't believe I thought I had hair.
|Love you guys.|
