god, i should've been an actress.....

well, i'm back in dreary ol' erie. yesterday was craig's birthday, and he usually has dinner with his parents, and his mom bakes a pie that is all for him. (but i got a piece!)

anywho, i didn't want him to be alone for his birthday! so, i made sure he thought i was slammed all day (which, i pretty much was, seeing as how i did four package designs for flashlights, and got out my flashlight catalog to print, and two trade show ads for approval!) go me :D.... *and nobody will know what i'm talking about unless any howies are reading* but, i called him and i made sure i whined about how i'd be stuck here ALL night!!!!!! and i was so upset. what a little actress i am. heheh! so, i pretended i was driving to ups (i was really on the highway) and he was telling me about how he may leave early to go to his parent's because he won some cool tools on e-bay he wanted to show his dad. and i said "well don't leave without me!" and it took him a few minutes but then i think he was pretty excited i was on my way!!

we had such a nice visit with his parents, they are so nice. i have to watch the swears and devie b vulgarity around them though. my household is very free and not the societal "norm" whatever that is.... but. i digress. his mom made us steak, potatoes and beans. it was pretty good. i have been eating meat from time to time lately (mostly in the form of hot teryaki beef jerky) so i ate a little...

we went back to nanny's house and played a little grand theft auto and then off to sleep because we had to get up around 5:30 am, (but i actually got up at 6!!!) lazy me.

it was so nice being able to surpise him and see how happy he was, i hope he had a good first birthday with me. :D

How far away is Craig from where you live? I would HATE that....when I wanna see somebody I wanna see them right now! LOL :)

mary, he lives about 2 hours away :(
it really sucks. but, we talk on the phone about 3 x's a day and we text message all day..
and then on weekends we alternate who drives to see who.
it's been going on for a year now! and i would hate to see how much gas we've wasted doing this! ah.

Happy Birthday to Craig! My brother's and fathers b'day were on the 5th and 8th.

What a nice surprise for him! Spending time with the parents, especially the "mommie" is always a unique experience. My man is his mother's favorite, so she's always interested in the woman in his life. But she's a hoot and I really like her.

You guys are cute together! By the way, your hair looks great in the photo. Did you try the product I mentioned? Did you get a ceramic straightener?

happy birthday to your family too. :D

birthday's are so great. i love making such big deals out of them!
