Baby Girl and I went out for our first walk today. I figured we'd better go before the day got too warm. And this time it wasn't because I'm a wimp. The little one sweats like nobody's business in her car seat. I spied a couple of cardinals along the way, so I thought I'd send you a shot. I could have cropped it closer, but where's the fun in that? You see the red bird, right? If I weren't so impatient, I think I could like birdwatching.
We don't have too many plans for my birthday. Sunday birthdays tend to be a little low-key. We're having some friends over for grilled pizza, then our new church building is getting dedicated and we'll top off the night with an ice cream cake. Sister #4 rocks the ice cream cakes, so I had her send instructions to the husband. It's going to be a chocolate-peanut butter wonderland (with peanut butter Oreos for the crust and peanut butter ice cream sandwiches layered between more ice cream goodness).
We've gone out to eat a couple of times over the past week, thanks to free birthday meal coupons. Signing up for email lists is the way to go. We went through this list and this list, subscribing to lots of email lists. It makes checking my junk email address exciting for once! If that doesn't scream cheap grad student, what does? Oh well, we might be cheap, but if it scores us free meals, why not? Plus it extends my birthday celebrating!
