Yes, that's right kids, today's my birthday and I turn 40!!! And what better day to have it than Friday, the 13th! So, I'm feeling great about this birthday and I feel like I'm at the perfect place in my life right now doing exactly what I love to do - isn't life just FABULOUS!

So, what do I have planned for my big day you ask? I get to spend it with my son's kindergarten class, as I am their volunteer party coordinator, and get to spend the day making crafts with the kids! Seriously, what could be more fun? His teacher knew what she was doing when she asked me to coordinate all their parties this year! I absolutely love kids and making crafts...so, yeah, it will be a great time. I'm planning on making bottle cap necklaces with the kids using valentine images and even got some cool ones for the boys (robots, monsters, ninjas, etc.). Of course I took it another step further and made these fun polymer clay robot key chains for all the kids to take home with them - a little party favor, if you will. I get so excited making things with the kids and just love being around them. They all call me "Carson's Mom" when they ask me something and that always puts a smile on my face!




As for tonight, dinner with the hubby and son - crab legs galore - my favorite!
