What a start!

I've been so down lately that I can't believe how quickly everything has turned around for me! It all started last Tuesday when I had a pre-birthday dinner with my parents.  My mom was leaving on Wednesday to go home for my two cousins high school graduations.  So we got together for take out from one of my favorite restaurants and to open presents.  My parents were beyond generous!  I received two Madame Alexander dolls, Snow White and Cinderella, an Eeyore plant decoration and the biggest surprise of all, I received a plane ticket to visit my grandparent and family for 4th of July week.  I am so excited! It has been so long since I've been there to visit. I've already contacted my cousins. 

Thursday night I went to get my eye brows waxed.  Doesn't sound very exciting , does it?  Well, let me tell you, it was the most relaxing experience I've ever had!!!  I had a gift certificate for a spa, so I booked an appointment.  They take you to a room where they have you lay down on a cushy bed with your neck supported and your legs elevated.  Soft classical music is playing.  Not once did I flinch or tear up.  And my eye brows looked awesome afterwards.  If it didn't cost so much, I would so do this every month!!!

Friday night was time for a pedicure.  Woo hoo!  Nothing like getting your feet and toes pampered!  It takes a good hour, but so worth the time!  I love to have my feet massaged. And to pick out a cute color to paint my toes!!!

Saturday was spent at the pool.  It was a great day!  A little sun.  Some swimming.  I forget how much I love to be in the water until I get back into it.  I could, if I had the time, swim every single day!!!  Then I watched LSU shut down South Carolina in this weekend's baseball series to take the regular season SEC champtionship!!  Woo hoo!  My boys are hot right now!

Beautiful day at the pool!
Later on Saturday, an old friend came by for a visit.  We had a great time.  Talking, catching up, a little sight seeing.  He had never been to LSU.  Like really?  That astonishes me! So I took him down to the campus and drove through it.  Went by Death Valley (football field), PMac (basketball arena), Mike the Tiger's cage, the basketball practice facility to see the Shaquille Oneal statue.  All the typical touristy spots. I LOVE showing off my alma mater!

Ron and I (I was having a really bad hair day!)

He brough me presents! Who doesn't love presents! He always manages to get me things that I adore.  I am a huge lover of sunflowers so the napkin holder that he got for me, is perfect! And now I just need some pictures for the photo album he gave me!  And as a Mexican girl, of course I need another set of maracas!  LOL

Friday is my birthday.  I have the day scheduled off but I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to take the day because I have a convention coming up next week.  But I think that I managed to get most of the work done on Monday so I can take off Friday!  Woo hoo!  A 4 day weekend.  Do I have plans?  :/ Nope!  No plans.  I may go over to Jenny's house for a BBQ on Sunday and/or Monday but other than that, I have no plans.  Everyone is either working or going out of town for the weekend.  It is the curse of having a Memorial Day birthday.  So I'm tossing around some options.  Maybe a shopping trip to Biloxi?  There's a cute little cross stitch store in Ocean Springs that I like to go to.  Or maybe go to the beach for the day?  Or go to New Orleans?  I have options and luckily, most times I enjoy my own company! :)

I've had birthday cards in the mail the past two days.  Yippee!  Love getting mail, that isn't bills! So now I have thank you notes to write!

I hope that the rest of the week goes as well as it has begun!!!  I can only hope!

Fingers crossed!!
