“A Whole Lotta Love …”

I have to say, I had the most ah-mazing birthday weekend ever!

First of all, I’ve never had a ‘birthday weekend’.

I know people who celebrate birthday MONTHS – birthday WEEKS – I’ve only ever done the one day.

So, this year, not only did I get to have fun on the day of with co-workers and then my family at home, but the next day more was to come!

Saturday, it was planned that we’d all head over to my moms and enjoy the company and the pool and sashimi! Nic’s girlfriend met us there and the four of us were in swimwear in no time.

Played Marco Polo – tried to dive (I can’t dive) – laughed, a LOT, while my parents and Jim chatted poolside.

Then came the surprise.

I was handed a card containing coveted tickets to the Led Zeppelin Experience concert that night – (With Jason Bonham) it was then announced by my honey that, oh, and by the way, we had a room for the night.

Everyone had known about this for 2 weeks – and had done a VERY good job at keeping mum about it.

It’s hard to surprise me – but surprised I was.

Here’s some photos of the weekend.

Only downside? On the way back from my moms, the damn ‘check engine’ light came on in my car and the exact same problem I had late last year, was happening again.

Nothing puts my stomach in knots more than car issues!!!

Car not shifting – RPMs trying to hit new heights.

My car is back at the shop … and I’m PRAYING the parts are still under warranty – because there is nothing in the coffer for repairs.

My honey told me he was “sorry for all the unneeded stress.” In a recent IM

My response?

“Stress is never needed … and car problems just happen – no one deserves to deal with it. There are people who woke up today without their children or their honey … I’m a lucky girl. We’ll get through this – somehow.”

And we will.


After such a gorgeous weekend, I have nothing but gratitude and amazing memories to get me through.

And I’ve got ‘A Whole Lotta Love’.
