i am writing this post on sunday morning because i know i probably won't have time before monday....because now, chris' birthday week has begun. we are starting it off right by going to the Minnesota Monthly Food & Wine Experience, and then to my parents' to have dinner with the whole family. ok, dinner is to belatedly celebrate my birthday, but family time is always fun, so chris is happy about it.

so this morning, before wine tasting drinking copious amounts of really expensive wine, i am going to decorate chris' car with lots of pom poms and maybe a dashboard hula dancer. and then i will run to the store so i can buy plenty of delicious and fancy breakfasts to make each morning this week. i told you, we do birthdays big around here. i am even going to have the kids try to design a tattoo for chris so he can get one, too. how cool would it be to have your kids' artwork forever etched on your body? (i guess depending on what they draw, it might not be that cool.) so if anyone has any fun and quirky birthday celebration ideas, send them this way. it's chris' week to be treated like a king.

i hope you are all treated like kings and queens this week!!
happy monday!
