Happy Thursday...Happy Birthday To Me!

Hi everyone!

I awoke this morning feeling far less fatigued than when I ended yesterday. After going over yesterday's calories, I realized that I was actually running a little short on them, which would explain why I was so "stressed" around 4:30 yesterday afternoon. But, since I hadn't been keeping track all day because I was so busy, I didn't know.

But today was a great day!

I went out this morning and picked up some fresh raspberries to have instead of a cake.
I've never done this before, but why not?

See how luscious and yummy they look?

I made a really simple hamburger, vegetable and barely soup that I could eat.
It was basically 7 cups of water, 7 teaspoons of chicken buillion, 1 1/2 cups of carrots, 1 1/2 cups of celery, 1 cup of onions, 1 or so cups of potatoes, 2 cups of cooked barley, one pound of hamburger, 3 tablespoons of parsely flakes and a little over 1/4 teaspoon of pepper.
Very simple and very healthy for you.
I filled myself up with it.
I also warmed up some home made whole wheat and white bread for the family to eat as well.
I just stuck to my soup.

The rest of the family had some cupcakes to eat.
And I did have a few licks of frosting.

I also indulged with a half cup of chips and mint ice cream.
And if you remember my husband, who doesn't like this kind of ice cream he also bought some cookies and cream as another choice for the family to eat.

Then the kids gave me little gifts and home made cards.
This one is from 6-year-old Iris Anna and the one behind is from 4-year-old Peach Blossom.
Their card were so beautiful and colorful with hand written notes, it was wonderful to receive such treasures from my children.
But that's not all.
I made it to the gym tonight.
And everone kept coming up to me to wish me "happy birthday" because 15-year-old Darling Rose kept telling my aquaintances to wish me happy birthday.
It was fun and I still worked my butt off.
Thank you for all of your birthday wishes as well.
I'm just really content and happy right now.
Tomorrow is Friday and I'll share with you some of those concoctions that I picked up today that my midwife suggested I get to help baby come in October.
Hope you all have a good one!
Sunshine Mama
