i have a very serious confession: i am self concious about my weekend recaps. the people who i kill weekend recaps are natalie and linsay (both blog crushes) but i just can't write it as funny and as awesome as they do. also, my life isn't as awesome as theirs are so.... whatyagonnado.
i spent my weekend completely and solely on taran's 30th birthday party. i spent the entire weekend getting ready for it. and battling inner demons (i am beautiful, i am skinny, i am worthwhile, she says into the mirror. and before we recap taran's birthday party, let me tell that my biggest fear is throwing a party and no one comes. and that is kind of what happened. because it was just my family and his family, none of his friends came!! even his friends that said they would come!!
so let's recap. yesterday we had taran's 30th birthday party. his birthday isn't until wednesday, but i wanted to do it on the weekend when people could come. i was a little disappointed that none of his friends came, but at least his family came. my sisters came and his parents came and his brother, his wife and her kids. my family doesn't really know his family that well, so it was a good opportunity for my in-laws and my family to get to know each other.
then i held this chunkey monkey and he was on my lap and tried to slide off and i'm like "you are 5 months old. you can't stand or sit up on your own. what is your plan. you can only lie down on the floor and kick your chubby adorable legs and smile at me. okay you can get down. but first instead you lie down in my lap and i will blow kisses at you and blow my lips at you while you smile. okay that's better."
taran had a great time and said that all that mattered to him was to be with me and his family and it was a perfect party. i hope he isn't lying to make me feel better and i really hope he didn't think the party wasn't so lame, i really just wanted him to have fun and feel loved and spoiled. he said that is what he felt, i hope it's true. i love him so much, i just wanted to make him happy and show how much i loved him. oh well. he keeps telling me it was the perfect party, so i guess it was.
happy birthday baby!! mushy post coming on wednesday!
