Yesterday (Jan. 11th) was our daughter's 5th birthday party. Technically she's not 5 until the 14th, but parties are meant to be done on Saturday's right? Time really does fly when you have kids. You can literally see them grow and change! It happens too fast. It truly does not feel like 5 years has gone by since I gave birth to her.
My husband got a new toy a couple days before the party and really wanted me to try it out...
This was intense! After the first shot and after my heart went back to beating regularly, I shot it again. :-) Turns out I'm a rifle girl. Shotguns kick too hard. It was fun to shoot but you'd definitely get a sore shoulder if you shot it multiple times in a row.
I'd say it turned out to be a great party, even though it was a bit cold to have an outside party. The kids were jumping in the bounce house a lot so they were taking off socks and tights before too long. I was running on fumes by the end of the day. The only things that got me through the day without passing out were a bunch of vitamin c's, an elderberry and two ibuprofen. I'm still fighting off the flu but getting better. Hoping this week will be a better week to get some miles in.
On a random note: this chicken tortillini soup that my mother in law made tonight was delicious!
How was your weekend?
Have you had tortillini soup before?
Have an amazing Monday everyone!!
