Big week over here! Tuesday is Toby’s fourth birthday!
And as if it wasn’t hard enough reflecting on the the fact that I’ve gone from watching my baby grow from a tiny little McNugget shaped thing inside my belly to an adorable little boy with boundless creativity, an endless imagination and a mouth that never ever stops (just like his mommy), Wednesday I turn 32.
Thirty-two. My twenties ended two years ago, and now I am fully, totally, completely ensconced “In my thirties”.
There’s a billion and a half reasons WHY I love being in my 30s (many of which I’m going to post about on Wednesday), but I’m not going to lie and say the magic combination of my baby growing up, my birthday, and finding a few more grey hairs on Matt’s head making me ever more aware that one day I will wake up and be married to Santa Claus is an altogether pleasant one.
Fortunately, after a string of horrible birthdays, 32 is going to be the best birthday ever. I know that’s a huge sweeping statement to make that would normally fall short, but considering that my 31st was spent with Matt in the hospital, and my 30th was spent at my grandmother’s wake, it honestly wouldn’t take much. But lest we forget, I am married to the absolute greatest man in the entire freaking world, because…….
After almost ten years of menu ogling, internet stalking, and doodling “Mrs. Allison Dufrense”, Matt is taking me out for a child-free night and I am finally going to eat at my #1 restaurant crush WD-50! No more “saving it for a special occasion” or making excuses- Wylie Dufrense is my hero, and Wednesday at 7pm, I am finally going to be eating his food- like THIS:

Know what that is? NEITHER DO I! But I know for a fact that it’s probably so delicious that there will be no Tumblr post on Friday, for I will have spontaneously combusted with joy.
And as a coincidence- we’ve got a brand spanking new cupcake flavor today that could make YOU spontaneously combust with joy! Who feels like potentially exploding today?
